Bin Kiran

Apparently, we have a new Islamist demagogue on our hands.  I am talking about Abd Al-Ilah bin Kiran of Morocco, who won 1/4th of seats in the new royal election.  This election is being hailed although voter turnout was elevated by the government from 35% to over 40% suddenly.  This Bin Kiran was in his youth a leftist (don't you hate those former leftists?) and was active in the Socialist Youth (the arm of the National Union of Popular Forces).  The King received Bin Kiran for a few minutes only, after which Bin Kiran said: "I was in front of a great man: a kind and gentle man.  And fully aware of what the homeland needs."
