1951: Mohamed V: Islamic Leader. Tinted Mocking Card

Artist signed ( Gibs ) caricature postcard. It shows the Moroccan nationalist leader Mohamed Allal al-Fassi (1910-1974), who was one of the founders and later the president of the Istiqlal party, an erudite Islamic scholar, and an author.

Mohamed Allal al-Fassi was born into a family which descended from a companion of the prophet Mohammed.

In 1953 when other politicians turned against the armed Moroccan terrorists who attempted to wrench their country free from France by employing urban guerrilla tactics, Allal al-Fassi became the only important Istiqlal leader to ally himself with them. When France granted Morocco its independence in March 1956, the Istiqlal needed Allal al-Fassi to negotiate with terrorist leaders and win them over to the party.

One stamp dropped, otherwise fine condition. Scarce postcard.
