Wolf Pangloss's Fish Taco Stand

"But, reverend father," said Candide, "there is horrible evil in this world."

"What signifies it," said the Dervish, "whether there be evil or good? When his highness sends a ship to Egypt, does he trouble his head whether the mice on board are at their ease or not?"

"What, then, must we do?" said Pangloss.

"Hold your tongue," answered the Dervish.

Jewess Runs for Parliament in Morocco

Positive news from Al-Masaa via MEMRI.
A Moroccan Jewish woman, Maggie Cacoun, is to head the women's list of the Al-Wast Al-Aghtama'i party in the upcoming parliamentary elections in Morocco.

Cacoun, who defines herself as a "nationalist Moroccan," said that she does not want her religion to be the main issue in her candidacy.

The party's secretary-general said that Cacoun's candidacy was "an opening for Jews as a fundamental element among the elements of the Moroccan identity."

Another Jew, Joseph Levy, is currently the party's deputy secretary-general.
I wonder how she will do in the election.
