"Almaghrib remained the only nationalist newspaper and continued to appear until the declaration of war, always animated by Said Hajji. The newspaper appeared twice weekly on two pages only because of the modicity of its financial means and was issued in 1500 specimens. Its acknoweledged sympathy to the powers of the Axis has been the cause of its suspension in 1939. It is probable that only the English supports that Said Hajji enjoyed had guaranteed such a long life to the newspaper 'Almaghrib.'

Footnote: Born in 1912, of father tradesman, currently writing in english and french, Said Hajji was the best and most talentuous polemist that Morocco knew."
