In contrast to the picture of age-old harmony projected by today's regime in Morocco, western newspapers in the 19th century describe how Jews were persecuted by their Muslim neighbours in Morocco. The inestimable blog Elder of Ziyon has unearthed two newspaper articles:
"Here is an account of Jews in Fez, Morocco, part of a longer article about Morocco that was published in the (Chicago) Inter Ocean, November 4, 1894. Although the article seems slightly exaggerated (Jews weren't forced to wear peyos, and I am skeptical that there was a death penalty for a Jew being on a street with a mosque), the article describes how the Jews are persecuted by their Muslim neighbors. It also has a fair amount of the typical unconscious antisemitism that is often seen in 19th century newspaper articles."
