U.S., Morocco bolster counterterror ties

الَّذِينَ يَتَّخِذُونَ الْكَافِرِينَ أَوْلِيَاءَ مِنْ دُونِ الْمُؤْمِنِينَ ۚ أَيَبْتَغُونَ عِنْدَهُمُ الْعِزَّةَ فَإِنَّ الْعِزَّةَ لِلَّهِ جَمِيعًا

"Do those who take the kafirun as protectors, rather than the believers, hope to find power and strength with them? Power and strength belong entirely to Allah."

(An-Nisaa, 4:139)
