Moroccan Belly Dance Festival Calls it Quits

The belly dance festival that was set to be in Marrakesh next month has cancelled because of the Israeli participants.  The organizers felt that it was unsafe to proceed because of the negative response from Islamist members of parliament and pro-Palestinian associations.  I don't quit understand all of the hatred for Jewish people.  My ex-husband talked about how much he hated the Jews but couldn't give a substantial reason for the hatred. It is sad that this had to be cancelled.  I think that the women would have had a good time dancing and having fun. At least 18 countries, including Britain, Japan, Russia and The Netherlands, were due to have taken part in the festival which was first held in Istanbul in 2010.
