The fundamentalist attitude has several variations. In the Moroccan context, the mechanisms of state fundamentalism are linked in particular to the genealogical referent of the Alaouite dynasty in power. The latter claims the fundamentalist identity in the sense of its unfailing connection to the Prophet of Islam, through his daughter Fatima. From this point of view, the case of Morocco is interesting because the monarchical power, as the embodiment of the Moroccan state and supreme political actor, puts forward a definition of fundamentalism based on a combination of both religious resources, genealogical and political.
“L’attitude fondamentaliste compte plusieurs déclinaisons. Dans le contexte marocain, les mécanismes du fondamentalisme étatique sont liés notamment au référent généalogique de la dynastie alaouite au pouvoir. Cette dernière revendique l’identité fondamentaliste dans le sens de son lien indéfectible au Prophète de l’islam, par sa fille Fatima. De ce point de vue, le cas du Maroc est intéressant car le pouvoir monarchique, en tant qu’incarnation de l’État marocain et acteur politique suprême, met en avant une définition du fondamentalisme qui s’appuie sur une combinaison des ressources à la fois religieuses, généalogiques et politiques.”
