Emily has sent me a very distressing news piece from Reuters. It seems the Moroccan authorities jailed 14 heavy metal fans for “Satanism”.

The 14 men aged between 22 and 35 years were found guilty of “possessing objects which infringe morals” and of “acts capable of undermining the faith of a Muslim.

Yet another example of what a “caring & sharing” religion Islam is. These bigots jailed the young men for one month to one merely for liking heavy metal. Despite the headline (obviously written by someone who hasn’t read the damn article) most of those jailed were musicians in three Moroccan based bands.

Of course, one can not be too critical of these Islamist fools, since you know damn well that Falwell & Robertson probably admire Moroccan authorities for what they have done. No doubt Tipper Gore (ex-drug addict/PMRC) and her hubby will be pleased too.

I wonder if Amnesty will take up the cause of these metal-heads? Somehow I doubt it. You have to admit it would make for a great advert campaign. A bunch of long hairs headbanging and raising a glass of beer to say: “in Morroco you can be jailed for this.”

    Marty,

    Gee, you mean Morocco’s not the mystical paradise that William Borroughs, Paul Bowles, Jimmy Page et al made it out to be? I’m shocked, shocked! ;-)

    Of course Morocco sucks, anybody had doubts? It’s an islamic dictatorship and also a drugs gateway. What Spain should do is to build a Great Spanish Wall like China, to get rid of drugs and the invasion of illegal immigrants, some of which participate in terrorist actions in Europe.

  • sam

    cmon man morocco aint tht bad.
    i lived ther for 5 years and all tht stuff ur talking about is just stereotype. Im christian, but i also know(out of research) tht islam IS a peaceful religion.

    and those musicians tht were jailed werent only satanists they also insulted the king and his mom..
    (i dnt blame the government for wut they dd)

  • http://www.andrewiandodge.com Andrew Ian Dodge

    Good back and read the Koran then a book like Battle for God…then you can lecture on what a “peaceful religion” Islam is.

    Um, those musicians weren’t Satanists mate…read the reports again.

  • http://w6daily.winn.com/ Phillip Winn

    Sam, your best defense is that these musicians insulted the king and his mom and therefore you don’t blame the government for putting them in jail?

    Man, that’s messed up!

  • A Moroccan

    Let me introduce myself..I’m Moroccan :)

    And yeah Morocco sucks! I fleed the country last year because yeah the islamic and peacefull country it is didn’t tolerate the fact I wasn’t so religious..The law sanctions any “muslim” who denies the principles of Islam..Let’s not talk about corruption and the like..

  • A moroccan

    All you are a bunch of morons, morocco rules and the bible is not a peaceful book either, its not sunday school love and catholic preists giving it to little children up the pooper.
    so go find yourself something better to do than to sit and bash a country you dont know anything about and find yourself something better to do.

  • James

    BTW, Heavy Metal is for rejected freaks that no one want to touch or smell…Bravo Moroccan autorities for doing this favor for all planet Earrth…Hurray for planet Earth and the moroccan autorities. Althought I don’t like autority in general, what moroccan coppers did makes me want to go live there.

  • hafid

    you’re right about this.moricco you’ll find nothing really good,exxcept kidnapping terrorising killing……etc by the king

  • TEENAGE METALHEAD

    .I WAS A TEENAGE METAL HEAD..I STILL BRING OUT THE DIO ALBUM ONCE IN A WHILE..BUT IT SOUNDS GOOD FOR ALL OF 5 MINUTES..
    IN aLL HONESTY I WISH HEAVY METAL NEVER EXISTED,IT DID NOTHING BUT FILL MY HEAD FULL OF NEGATIVE,DARK AND ULTIMATELY DAMAGING IDEAS.
    I DIDNT BECOME A SATANIST,BUT I SPENT A LOT OF LIFE THINKING ABOUT LIFE IN TOTALLY DELLUSIONAL AND DAMAGING WAY.
    ANYONE WHO SAYS ITS JUST MUSIC ,IS DISRECPTING THE POWER OF MUSIC AND THE ARTS THEMSELVES.
    i CANT BLAME MORROCANS FOR NOT WANTING TO CREATE A SOCIETY WHERE PROMISCUITY,DRUGS ETC IS NO LONGER NOT JUST STIGMATISED BUT GLAMOURISED.
    mOST MORROCANS WOULD AGREE THAT THEY DONT WANT THESE KIND OF IDEAS TO BECOME A PART OF THEIR CONSCIOUSNESS LIKE THEY ARE IN THE WEST AND WHO THE FUCK ARE WE TO TELL THEM HOW TO LIVE?
    iT SEEMS THAT HAVING NO RESPECT FOR ANYTHING AND NO SENSE OF COLLECTIVE RESPONSIBILITY IS WHAT ALL WESTERN PEOOPLE WANT NON WESTERN PEOPLE TO ASSUME AS THE STANDERD FOR THEIR SOCIETIES?
    IF YOU DONT AGREE WITH THAT,YOU MUST BE A FUNDAMENTALIST?
    IT AMAZES ME HOW WESTERN PEOLE ASSUME THAT EVERYBODY WANTS TO LIVE LIKE THEM….INCREDIBLY ARROGANT!

  • Dude

    thats one of th best thing morocco has done so far…

    i wish they r jailed for life..

  • carrrrmen

    I’m a Moroccan and live in Morocco, and though it may not be Heavy Metal Paradise (not that I can think of any other small country based on a religion that is), it is not what you have made it out to be. First of all, this was the only absurd case that has ever taken place in Morocco and they had been RELEASED almost immediately. Also, it is one of the most advanced African countries and most tolerate ones and it does NOT run on conservative fanatiscm. You all have to get your info straight, especially considering the fact that this is the country that Led Zeppelin have so romantacized. Come to Marrakesh and see for yourselves, you culturally deprive MORONS.

  • U.K

    Morocco is not that bad…
    Think of how america killed
    5 million vitnamese because they didn’t believe in everyone for themselves. Think of how the british raped and killed millions of the worlds inhabitants so they could steal their resources.
    Look at your own country and tell me if you have a perfect government or society?

  • mostafa

    Islam is religion of peace and you have to learn about Islam and i m sure you do not understand a word from the holy Koran , simply in Islam you believe in 314 prophets from adam ,noe,moses,abraham, Jesus …………….and mohammed peace be upon them all , You believe in god and his angels,the judgement day his holy books(bible,coran,etc)paradise and hell,you pray , you fast ramadan and you give zakat ,perilinage etc but if you talk about morocco then i can tell yes it sucks , i m Moroccan and i lived in morocco for more than 30 years ….. CORRUPTION,TORTURE,DRUGS,ETC MEANS ONE THING (MOROCCO)…i hope i helped you with this
    peace

  • aaliyah

    i am half morrocain and i am a muslim (islam) and i love this religion. Yes i have been to morocco i go there every year somethings i like about it some things i dont but the most wonderful place is marakesh. thats the only reason i go (oh and to see my family) so all of u haters p**s off because morocco is 1 of the most famous countries in the whole entire world so if u dont like morocco i suggest u go to marrakesh and if u still dont like it go back next year and the year after (trust me i started to like it after 5 years)

  • METAL

  • nocturno culto

  • http://www.moroccosavvy.com/taamarbuuta Jill

    That’s just one incident; I don’t think you can say “Morocco sucks” based on that. In America, is it not true that you can be fined or jailed for copying a CD or downloading music? What about for burning the American flag?

  • Rachid

    A typical post. Islam gets blamed fro everything. A retard insults the king and get jailed and it is the fault of Islam not the Moroccan authorities. Here in the States you cant burn a flag that is the law and if you do you go to jail. It is the law and not because the US is a christian nation. Stop putting blame on Islam and start reading about Islam. Stop Watching FOX and CNN and get yourself a passport and travel the world. Stop being so self centered and enjoy diversity. It is not always Islam vs Christianity. Its retard muslims vs retard christians.

    Peace

  • http://www.andrewiandodge.com Marty Dodge

    The poster of this certainly is not a Christian so it does rather put paid to your comment. You also didn’t seem to notice that the post takes a shot at Christian fundies as well.

  • THE MOROCCAN

    SUCKERS LIKE YOU ALL TALK ABOUT RELIGIONS AND COUNTRIES THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT. SUCKERS.

  • NOT moroccan

    You, THE MOROCCAN, is the only sucker.

  • lola

    dude shut the fuck up im moroccan and morocco is awesome dont talk unless u go there first smart ass and islam is a religion about being good to other people so u should read a book about it before opening ur big mouth

  • http://www.andrewiandodge.com Marty Dodge

    Not big on free speech or expression now are you? You lack of class speaks far more about you than your criticism about you.

  • satan

    fuck islam

  • Sam, A.

    Hey whoever said the guys were arrested for liking or listening to a certain type of music is tallking out of his ASS.

    I worked/lived in Morocco, Tunisia, Iraq, Kuwait, UAE… and I find Morocco to be the BEST.

    Before you judge Morocco, go to Algeria, Iran and Iraq and you’ll see the difference. You’ll think Morocco is Heaven next to the other Arab countries.

    Morocco, Algeria, Iraq, Iran, Kuwait, USA, Music

  • SayWhat?!

    Those of you who say that morocco does not accept anything that will corrupt its people and the religion or are blabbering about it beeing a dictatorship… Should stop by Casablanca’s Night clubs and watch how young moroccans are partying and getting drunk! And none of them are getting arrested because it’s a free country!
    Heck Just go on facebook and take a look At the pics of morocco’s new generation,most of u insuling morocco will feel so lame.

  • http://riadzany.blogspot.com/2008/01/heavy-metal-to-rock-morocco-in-february.html Samir

    Oh really – it’s not the heavy metal. Check out this concert coming up…

    Morocco Rocks!

  • coolio

    Algeria is the best MOROCO SUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKKKKKKKKKS

  • Elegeion

    If you think this kind of thing only happens in Morocco, research the West Memphis Three – Falsely imprisoned for being Metal Heads in a conservative christian state in USA, Malaysia banning Black Metal, and jailing anyone who even looks like a Black Metal fan.

    I think both fundamental Islam AND Christians are guilty of repressing freedom of expression, and this proves it…After all, when was the last time anyone fought a world war or terrorist act in the name of Satan???! NEVER!!!

  • bla bla bla

    wat the fuck?!??!?! jesus and adam are not prophets u mothe facker !!!!!!! adam was the firt man and jesus isthe son of god u mothr shitter…… plus noah is not a prophet hes just a guy who survived the tsunami wat ever thing…. moses just freed the israelites from egypt (through god) and abraham just was promised to be father of a nation… plus muhammad and ish mael are @ss holes… they fuck bitches…

  • Andrew

    I know a few of Moroccan Metallica fans from
    the months I stayed there. Heavy metal is certainly not looked upon as illegal and in fact listened to there by quite a few. Making a display of percieved satanic objects like Ozzy Osbourne does, such as pentagrams or animal bones could result in light fine or imprisonment. General guitar thrashing/ head banging is no problem at all. It’s quite a free country, there’s just a few taboos there like any other place. What about the “anti hate” laws in Europe? Those supress free speech as well.

  • Aisha

    Can’t everyone just get along and respect each other? You don’t have to agree but at least have respect.

  • annas

    hey dear moroccans u have to know that those motherfuckers talkin shit about a country with muslims they don`t even know their dadsssss i mean they fuckin come from bbbbbbbbbbitches so let them talk whatever they say about morocco or muslims…and lets talk about their momsssssssss:)

  • annas

    fuckin europe sucks anywayyy and has like 80% of moms are bbbitches i mean they can cheat anytime soooo i ammmmm very very proud i am muslim and moroccan….uuuuu sonssssss of bitchesssssssssssssssssss

  • Islamic God

    Yes, Islam is the most peaceful religion, and if you don’t believe that then you will get killed in Morocco. It is only peaceful if you follow exactly what they tell you to. And if your not a Moroccan native then you will be a target by all the thieving/kidnapping/murdering people of my country, and if you think the police will help you, then you are very wrong. The police force will try and squeeze you for what ever money you may have left but following a prolonged beating you will be released. When will they see a free country where it doesnt matter what you wear or how long your hair is or what music you listen to or even which country you are from, Morocco at the moment is pretty much England in 1800. sorry if my English isnt so good

  • shake

    i really feel sorry for what it’s been said about morocco .i think morocco is a great place to live and run a new life if you are rejected from people abroad .in morocco,all forigners are welcame and sweet talked by the locals ,as an example some forigners seem to invest and successed in their businesses in moroccan territories .for islam ,people are very tolerant and they respect other religions as a proof ,we have too many jewish and christains all over morocco.for authorities, they really bad once you are caught with a foringer somewhere.

  • Enma

    <.< better to serve in hell than reign in morocco

  • BDigital

    All you people complaining about metal and metal heads being jailed…fuck…please look at the BIG picture. How all the leading governments of the world are actually the real satanists that bring corruption, greed, starvation, war, disease, and satanist culture (sex, drugs, metal) to the poor countries making them live the way westerners live. I love in Canada and I’m not saying you shouldn’t have a little fun in life and have sex or drink or whatnot. You’re just not letting cultures live their way. All your politicians with their NWO bullshit, decimating populations, raping people, the catholic church and all their sins…THAT people is the big picture. When did muslims ever do anything since bush’s father financed the talibans and created this war, inventing the name Al Qaeda (really invented by the CIA) or your federal government stealing all your money to continue to finance this war. Islam is a religion of peace, until western leaders sold it for materialism, saying it’s cool, you have to live this way. You and all your propaganda you don’t even catch in movies, selling you the fakest dream of all time..the american dream

    ps: don’t forget to pay your taxes motherfuckers, brainwashing your children in army camps and transforming them into immature killing machines that kill innocent people around the world…i cant even stop talking, this is proposterous. Just do a little research on the subject, get the facts straight on what school doesn’t teach you. How the US bombed 50 countries in the 1900s, IS THIS NORMAL!!!

  • Yusuf Squires

    Shut the fuck up…morocco rules…your jsut being a kissass because your the real loser…islam is peaceful…dont talk the talk unless you walk the walk

  • Hello

    You are right marty

  • Morocco sucks

    Morocco is an islamic dicatorship. They think they are better than sub-saharan black Africans because their history, and even had the gumption to try and be a part of the European Union. how retarded is that?

    They don’t even practice Islam, in reality, Morocco is a european wannabe secular society, where prostitution, drug use, and alcohol consumption runs rampant.

    My friend’s dad married a Moroccan woman and all they wanted was money and shit he had from America everytime he came to visit them.

    Bottom line: MOROCCO SUCKS

  • woot

    satan your going to hell =)

  • woot

  • PeaceNOW

    Please leave Islam alone… in fact I recommend you convert to Islam and see how much peaceful this religion is and how much more peaceful this religion will make you. And no… I am not talking about the “Bin Laden” Islam that you got introduced to through 911, Fox-news, O’Reilly,Beck,& Limbaugh. Give it a shot and you will thank me and yourself later…

  • Youssef

    Marty nevermind morocco is full of those bitches lola’s like Nevermind..

    PS:

    I am very lucky i’m in the US nowadays,because of the very silly educational system that is based on stupidity.

    God bless America!

  • http://www.andrewiandodge.com Marty Dodge

    Thanks Youssef for your comment, beats all the hate coming from the Muslims in this thread.

  • Silvya

    Total inconceivability.
    However, If we look on the reasonable side it has to be pointed out that those guys should be aware of their behaviour in country where Islam defines written and unwritten rules.

  • Salma

    Muslim,Arab,Moroccan womam and proud of that Fuck all the haters go to Hell !!!!

    shut your illuminati mouth

  • Soufiane Haimed

    I’m moroccan and proud to be.
    I listen to heavy metal and death metal and i go to every concert nearby i’ve never been jailed, i’m sure that you have invented this story or watch on a movie because there’s a movie talking about some heavy metal dude got jailed but anyway it’s just a movie and just for fun, don’t believe everything on the internet people.

    {personal attack deleted by comments editor]

  • Soufiane Haimed

    Rachid Well said, stop watching all those fuckin’ FOX and CNN and get a passport and travel to morocco and watch how it is, FOX and CNN give just the negative side of morocco even the USA have a negative side worse than the negative side of morocco.

    Get a life people !

  • Mannopk

    I think you’re an award winning sucker! why you said that? have you explored the whole country? digged in their whole history?

  • a moroccan using the name “nick” to post a comment

    morocco isnt awesome or bad
