Meet Morocco’s ‘Terrorist Hunter’

Had it succeeded, the plot could have wiped out Morocco’s valuable tourist industry overnight. Holed up in the breezy surfing town of Essaouira, a cell of would-be ISIL gunmen were plotting an armed rampage, bringing extremist carnage to a resort famous for its hippy image.

But on June 22, the four suspects were arrested before they could act, sparing the resort once frequented by rock star Jimi Hendrix from mass bloodshed.

Officials claim they were aiming to repeat ISIL’s 2015 atrocity on a resort near Sousse in Tunisia, in which the group massacred 38 people and killed off the country’s tourism trade at the same time.

    Meanwhile, on the tourism front, the aircraft carrier “George H.W. Bush” has dropped anchor in Haifa, with its crew scheduled to celebrate the Fourth in Israel. If this young woman is a typical example, the sailors will soon discover the real reason Israel is known as the Land of Milk and Honey.
