André Azoulay

André Azoulay (born 1941 in Essaouira) is a senior adviser to King Mohammed VI of Morocco.
He previously advised Mohammed's father, King Hassan II.

According to Azoulay, "Moroccan Jewish memories are many centuries old. We know it has not all been rosy. There are black pages. But the Moroccan Jewish past has nothing to do with the history of the Jews during that same period in the West. In Morocco we have seen no deportations, no Nazism, no concentration camps and no Inquisition whatsoever. Rather, we have seen Jews and Muslims living together and respecting each other"
