Can Morocco Save the Middle East?

I have a new piece up on Townhall, fresh on the heels of my trip to Morocco:

"Can Morocco Save the Middle East?"

"When Barack Obama took office, King Mohammed VI wrote him a letter. As of yet, there's been no response. After chiding the US on its poor listening skills, to the dismay of many thoughtful leaders before him, it seems the perfect opportunity to seek the advice of someone better qualified than he is to navigate through the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict."

Great article, SE.

Perhaps Obama doesn't want to have any comparisons should Morocco's king play a role. After all, they're roughly the same age, dynamic men, but the king actually DOES something to move things forward whereas Obama likes to talk about it and then waits for it to happen."
