1st- the little prince is going to be 2 years this May.
2nd- the doctor will do a local anesthesia.

Maybe the jews do circumicize boys when they are new born. Usually, it is not the case in Morocco.

I read that the ceremonies will take place in Fez (the spiritual city of Morocco and one of the Unesco World heritage sites) on April 13, 14, and 15. It is a big deal as you said.
  • Wed April 13: The little prince will visit the Tomb of the founder of Fez (Sultan Moulay Idriss II)
  • Thur April 14: Circumcision ceremony in the morning.
  • Fri April 15: King M6 will host a Lunch for men after Friday's prayer and Lalla Salma will host a dinner for Women.

moroccan culture is very beautiful, but I think that the MRF uses the attachment of the Morrocans to their culture to be maintained in the power, and I find that bad

Day ONE: April 13: visit of the prince and his father to the temple of the founder of Fez, spiritual city and Unesco world heritage.

Day TWO: April 14: the actual circumicision

Day THREE (Friday): April 16: M6 will host a lunch for men (I guess after Friday prayer) and Salma will host a dinner for women.

NB: the king looks sooo happy with his cute baby...

Rosa, Sorry but you are mistaken. One of the duties of the king of Morocco is to protect centuries-old traditions. He isn't using them to "stay in power" as you seem to think. He is just doing his job.
That is for one and for two, all Moroccans, with no exception, do respect the circumcision tradition and celebrate it pretty much in the same way.

What I said didn't concern the ceremony of circumcision; it is a religious obligation that I respect

What I said concerns the use by MRF of its relationship with the prophet Mohamed, for establish its authority

There is a sanctification of which makes the object the royal family, I listen the commentaries of the Moroccan television, they speak of them and particularly the king as if were representing God on earth

I know that a particular caste exist in morocco “the chorfas” coming down from the prophet (or saying that) and that are considered like being over of the common of the mortals

I find it absurd, the prophet Mohamed always lived modestly and never benefited from privileges, the one that has follow him was not his family's member, if the prophet wanted that his family detains the power he would have designer one of his parents, instead of it he designated the most competent man

The MRF reigns while using the love of the Moroccan for the Islam and her prophet and as I said it, I find this bad
