However accurate it might be "tiny crushed balls" would never bring couscous to my mind.

Please add type-in "Maghrib" for Maghreb. Also, Kasbah is spelled with Q and not K. Because the Arabic character used for the "cuh" sound is the heavier one "Qaaf" and not "Kaaf". So please change that too.

Thank you, Charles Boyer, for "Come to the Casbah" from the trailer for Algiers, even if you spelled it with a c instead of a k.

OooooOOooo Charles Boyer, best voice of the era. He's brilliant in Arch of Triumph / Arc de Triomph with Ingrid Bergman, based on the book by Erich Maria Remarque. It's a very hard to find film though -- but worth it, it's a kazillion times better than Casablanca. Might be on YT if you poke around, or from your local struggling cinefile video joint.

Barbary lions aren't extinct, they're just extirpated / extinct in the Moroccan landscape. A few years ago there was some research that established that they are genetically indistinguishable from some other wild populations. People thought they were a different species because morphologically males had huge manes, but mane growth is impacted by environment.

I would have gotten the badge if I had spelled Phoenicia correctly. I thought it was spelled Phonecia.
