Prince Blames Attacks on U.S. Foreign Policy

RESPONSE TO TERROR | IN BRIEF / MOROCCO

September 30, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

An outspoken Moroccan prince said U.S. foreign policy was behind this month's attacks, the first such public criticism by a member of the royal family since the attacks that killed thousands.

In an analysis published in the Moroccan daily Al Alam, Moulay Hicham al Aloui, 37, said assaults by radical Islamists across the world were mainly because of the unresolved Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The political establishment in staunch U.S. ally Morocco considers the prince, who studied political science at Princeton and Stanford, a troublemaker who left the royal circle to seek the role of strong opposition figure.

The prince is second in line to the throne.
