(BLOG) Israeli Flag In Morocco Causes Consternation

"Last week I mentioned that there were a number of protests over the participation of Israeli singer Yael Naim in the "Concert for Tolerance" in Agadir, Morocco.

Well, the vigilant Arabs have sniffed out other Israelis visiting that city and they are not happy.

The Hespress Moroccan newspaper mentions that the Seventh International Congress on Cactus Pear and Cochineal was also held in Agadir this week, and it included an Israeli scientist who spoke on Tuesday (Noemi Tel-Zur on the scintillating topic of 'Pitahayas: introduction, agrotechniques and breeding.')

Last June, the paper notes, an Israeli delegation participated in a conference on whaling, also in Agadir."
