Faced with the unrelenting power of political change, the Kingdom of Morocco has again emerged as the leader of the Arab world. As their neighbors resist change, Morocco's King Mohammad VI proposed the writing of a new constitution.
The protesters on the streets of Morocco have not been asking for administrative change. Instead, they have been calling for a brand new political system, one where the elected government did something revolutionary: It governed.
Judging by the context and content of the national addresses delivered within hours of each other this weekend, Morocco's King Mohammed and Syria's Bashar Al Assad could not be farther apart from each other.
