4Plenty of tourists in Ouarzazate as ever and no reports of anything untoward in Marrakesh; apart from complaints about the scooters!

I have just spent a week in Marrakech & Essouira & can assure you that there was no trouble, or talk of trouble, in either.
As usual, I was met with nothing but politeness & warm friendship. I therefore simply do not recognise your term 'anger towards the West' with reference to Morocco.
I also met up with a friend from Rabat & he does not believe there will be any serious trouble there either.
You are making the mistake of assuming that all of the North African &/or Moslem countries are the same. They are most definitely not, politically, culturally or in the way they view their religion (s).
I know I would be far less safe in some of the shadier areas in London, than I will ever be anywhere in Morocco.

8Sorry cc 10, a little p.s
Marrakech is very very busy at the moment - certainly the busiest I have seen it in 2 1/2 years.
Coaches are disgorging wave upon wave of tourists at their 'setting down point' every day, so I would suggest early morning visits to places of interest will be better than later.
It is also getting chillier in the evening, especially in Essouira, so bring some warm clothes!
