    In 1033 about 6,000 Jews were killed in Fez, Morocco by Muslim mobs.[8][9] Mobs in Fez murdered thousands of Jews, leaving only 11 alive, in 1465[10 (Wikipedia) Fez Pogrom of 1276 On March 10, 1276, a massacre began in Fez, Morocco, because of a rumor that a Jew had behaved improperly to a Muslim woman. The riot stopped only when the Sultan, Yaqub bin Yusuf arrived. (Stillman, Norman, The Jews of Arab Lands, 1970 p. 80.) Fez Pogrom of 1465 On May 14, 1464, the Jews of Fez, now confined to a mellah (ghetto) for their own "protection" were almost completely exterminated. As in Granada, the cause was a Jewish vizier, Aaron bin Batash. The Jews in high posts in Muslim countries were put there because of their vulnerability, which made them easy to control, and because they were useful. In many instances they were eventually put to death to avoid a massacre of Jews. In this case, that did not suffice. A rebellion began which ended the Merinid dynasty. Similar massacres took place throughout the country. (Stillman, Norman, The Jews of Arab Lands, 1970 pp. 79-81.) Fez Pogrom of 1912 In 1912, Morocco became a French "protectorate." The Muslims did not like being protected. In Fez, they rioted and killed about 60 Jews, leaving about 10,000 homeless. The Jews were given refuge in the palace of the Sultan.
