There is a vandal on-line who has decided that anything connected to Fassi filmmaker Jamal Morelli is a "vanity page" - Rachid el-Ouali is one of Morocco's most important artists and he doesn't have a wiki. I am not sure but this is either anti-muslim maybe someone hurt this vandal's work.
Is there a source for the recently added assertion for Fes being the largest city in world c. 1100s?
This article currently contradicts itself -- intro sentence says third largest city in Morocco, infobox says second. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 18:53, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
anyone have a date on the massacre of christians that people associate the shriners cap to? unsigned comment by IP 184.108.40.206
- Not really. -- Szvest 16:32, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
The Shriner's cap is called a Fez - this video  gives a date 800 AD (at 6m25s), but doesn't give sources. The story is controversial. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Stuart Anthony (talk • contribs) 01:34, August 28, 2007 (UTC)
any reason there's no info on the Fes riots of the early '90's on here?unsigned comment by User:Nicole Javaly
- The only reason is that we've been waiting for someone like you to contribute. -- Szvest 16:32, 17 August 2006 (UTC)
I've just reverted this edit for the second time. The reason is simple. Morocco does not officially recognize Israel so the twinning was signed w/ the palestinian authority on May 7th, 1982 instead of Israeli authorities in Jerusalem. Also, Fes calls the city Al Quds and not Jerusalem. -- Szvest - Wiki me up ® 14:44, 24 January 2007 (UTC)
Old moroccan saying
You tell me you are going to Fez.
Now if you say you are going to Fez
That means you are not going.
But I happen to know that you are going to Fez.
Why have you lied to me, you who are my friend?
- I have never heard of it. They could be lyrics of a song I've never heard of. Where did you get it? -- FayssalF - Wiki me up® 04:29, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
- I found this, but I do recall it in a Rough Guide morocco guidebook when I was there in 1991. We travellers were heartily amused given the numbers of cnmen who approached backpackers....Casliber (talk · contribs) 04:35, 4 April 2009 (UTC)
It's unclear to me who took the city of Fes in 1554. Was it the Wattasid dynasty with the help of the Turks, or did the Ottoman Empire, with the help of the Turks, take Fes from the Wattasid dynasty? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Katalla (talk • contribs) 20:33, 17 April 2009 (UTC)
the place is variously called Fez or Fes all through the article. perhaps it should all be one or the other, with a note explaining which is more correct and why. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 18:55, 14 May 2009 (UTC)
