Morocco VS Iran

I find it kind of strange that none of the big Newspapers in Sweden is reporting about Morocco who has cut diplomatic links with Iran. This in the wake of outcry in the Sunni Muslim world over a statement by an Iranian official questioning Bahrain's sovereignty. Morocco also has criticized Iran for its efforts to spread its Shiite brand of Islam in Morocco.

Morocco, with 99 per cent of the country being Sunni Muslim, and the rest either Jews or Christians, seems to be on the same page as many other Sunni dominated states. The difference is that many other Sunni Muslims lives close to Iran and is afraid of the religious dictatorship of the Shiite’s in Iran.

Breaking of diplomatic ties is a serious business in politics and is very seldom done.
