Minority Politics by Silverstein

The article begins by discussing the adoption of a reformed constitution under the regime of King Muhammad VI.  Previously, the constitution defined Morocco only as a “sovereign Muslim State”.  The reformed constitution however, depicts a Morocco that seeks to look above its borders and religion.  This ideal is enforced by allowing “the free exercise of faiths” as well as the protection of the freedoms of speech and cultural practices.  I wonder how much influence did the U.S. have in this constitutional reform?  The changes that were made all bear a strong resemblance to our own constitution and the rights that we aim to protect as a nation.
