Africa is undoubtedly the future of humanity, this is not a cliché, it is reality. It has the resources, natural and human diversity, the aspiring youth and the iron will to step into action and make things happen for the benefit of its peoples. This blog will look introspectively in the dynamics of change in this "young" continent shedding light on creed, culture, politics and economics. There is a lot the world can learn from this continent. Was it not, after all, the cradle of humanity, dare I ask?

In his acceptance speech of the re-admission of Morocco in the African fold, King Mohammed VI declared solemnly the death of the Maghreb Union.
The late king Hassan II described metaphorically Morocco as a big tree with its roots deeply buried in Africa, its trunk in the Arab-Muslim world and its branches in Europe.
No development will be conceivable under a climate filled with ethnic, sectarian and religious tensions.
