The Stance of the Moroccan PM Vs the King on the Subject of Israel

The Moroccan prime minister, who signed the normalization agreement with Israel, congratulated Hamas on the "victory of the resistance."

Although the Prime Minister of Morocco is hostile to Israel, the true leader of Morocco is the king- and the King's position is very different.

In September 2018, the king said "Antisemitism is the antithesis of freedom of expression, because it implies the denial of the other," and called for teaching the history of Morocco, including its "darkest hours" - hinting at the Holocaust.

In recent years, by order of the King, Morocco has signed cooperation agreements on educational projects with international organizations that devote their time to the commemoration of the Holocaust. The King of Morocco also stressed that Jews and Christians living in the kingdom should enjoy equal rights and freedom of worship.

Morocco is not waiting for Biden
morocco decided to purchase 13 battle drones made in Turkey, as part of the building of its military force and intensification against its neighbor Algeria. The new drone can carry weights of up to 330 pounds and fly nonstop for 24 hours. One drone is estimated to be worth about 5 million dollars, so the entire deal should be worth around 64 million. This deal is taking place with the tension between Morocco and Algeria in the background, as the latter supports the Polisario underground. Morocco has turned to Turkey after the Biden administration decided to revalue a deal made by President Trump to supply Morocco with four attack drones made by the U.S. Source: Doron Paskin 🇮🇱 IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL! 🇮🇱

Morocco Hopes for Israeli Tourism Boost when Flights Resume Morocco hopes its improved ties with Israel and centuries-old Jewish history will help it offset some of the tourist trade it has lost to the global pandemic by bringing a surge of Israeli visitors once flights restart next month. The two countries agreed in December to resume diplomatic ties and relaunch direct flights - part of a deal brokered by the United States. Morocco was home to one of the largest and most prosperous Jewish communities in North Africa and the Middle East for centuries until Israel's founding in 1948. As Jews fled or were expelled from many Arab countries, an estimated quarter of a million left Morocco for Israel from 1948-1964. Today only about 3,000 Jews remain in Morocco, while hundreds of thousands of Israelis claim some Moroccan ancestry. Though a small number of Israeli tourists have already come to Morocco, many have been put off by the lack of direct flights and diplomatic ties. The head of the Israeli liaison office in Rabat, which reopened after the deal, said he expected flights to resume next month. Source: Reuters, ?Walla News ?? IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL

Israeli Book Makes History For the first time, an Israeli novel has been translated into Arabic in Morocco and will be sold in Moroccan bookstores. The groundbreaking novel, A Girl in a Blue Shirt, was written by Prof. Gabriel Bensimhon of the Steve Tisch School of Film and Television at Tel Aviv University. The novel, published by Yediot Books in 2013, tells the love story of an immigrant boy from Morocco and an Israeli-born girl who is in love with a Holocaust survivor. It takes place against the background of the early years of the State of Israel and the influx of immigrants from Morocco. The book was chosen for translation by Prof. Mohamed Elmedlaoui of the Mohammed V University of Rabat and was translated by his student, Dr. Ayashi Eladraoui. “I grew up in the town of Sefrou in Morocco until I immigrated to Israel at the age of 10,” recounted Bensimhon. “As an academic, I have studied Moroccan culture extensively. There was always a warm corner in my heart for the rich and multifaceted aspects that characterize the Moroccan culture. As a Moroccan Jew, I feel that I have come to realize a dream: the fact that my works are read in my hometown is a source of great personal pride.” The news follows the re-establishment of diplomatic relations between Morocco and Israel in December.

Middle East analysis
Israeli and Moroccon efforts to establish peace in Western Sahara: The Arab world invests much effort in establishing the recognition of the legitimacy of its leaders.  Many Arab states have chosen a path of political ideology, using forceful means and relying on Arab socialist doctrines, alongside the fiery preservation of opposition to the existence of the State of Israel.  Several daring Arab statesmen have already broken out of this paradigm and reached peace with Israel - President Sadat and King Hussein, and now King Hemed of Bahrain and Sheikh Zayed of the United Arab Emirates have also joined this trend.  Peace with Israel is not a risk-free strategy and some of the opponents of these leaders threatened their lives, but they still chose the path of peace. King Muhammad VI also now boldly announced the accession of Morocco to the circle of states establishing official peace with Israel. This declaration entails considerable risks for Morocco.  The security challenges facing Morocco lie in Western Sahara, an area that was formerly under Spanish control and is currently undergoing a struggle and dispute as many tribes in the area claim to have a historical connection with the area. The Polisario forces, supported by Algeria and more recently by Iran, threaten the territorial integrity of Morocco itself. In 2018, Morocco presented documents to the Iranian government, proving that Tehran is arming the Polisario forces with the training and help of Hezbollah.  The United States recognized Israel's substantial connection to the Golan Heights, as well as Morocco's affiliation with Western Sahara and acted to fortify political moderation throughout the region and to undermine the extremist axis.  The connection between Israel's and Morocco's efforts to establish peace and the situation in Western Sahara is clear.  When the moderate voices are heard clearly and distinctly in Arab countries, peace becomes a reality before our eyes.  But if Iran continues to pursue its expansionist pursuits unhindered, peace could be cut short. The determination of the United States and its allies is the key to a new era in the Middle East.

Trump Receives Award for Morocco-Israel Normalization Deal US President Donald Trump today (Friday) received Morocco's highest award for his work in advancing a normalization deal between Israel and Morocco. In a private Oval Office ceremony, Princess Lalla Joumala Alaoui, who is Morocco's ambassador to the United States, gave Trump the Order of Muhammad, an award given only to heads of state. It was a gift from Morocco's King Mohammed VI. White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and Middle East envoy Avi Berkowitz received other awards for their work on the Israel-Morocco deal, which was reached in December. The United States in the last five months helped broker deals between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco. The agreements are aimed at normalizing relations and opening economic ties. Trump, who leaves office on Wednesday, has drawn some criticism over the Morocco agreement because to seal the deal, he agreed that the United States would recognize Morocco's sovereignty over the Western Sahara. The Western Sahara has been the site of a decades-old territorial dispute between Morocco and the Algeria-backed Polisario Front, a breakaway movement that seeks to establish an independent state in the territory.

Israelis Look Forward to Visiting Morocco Morocco is a very special place. On the one hand, the most northwestern country in the African continent offers all the good that there is in this continent in general and in the Arab countries that inhabit it in particular. On the other hand, its proximity to Europe (less than 15 kilometers of sea separating Morocco from the tip of Europe) has imbued this monarchy with significant external influences and today Morocco is a great combination of cultures: including Jewish culture. The second-largest city in Morocco (after Casablanca) is particularly rich in Jewish history. Maimonides lived there for a time, and tourists can visit his former house. In Fez, there is also an ancient and large Jewish cemetery and a beautiful synagogue located in Malach, the Jewish Quarter. Source: Walla News ?? IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL! ??

A History of Israeli Ties with Morocco In contrast to relations with the Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan, Israel's relationship with Morocco is long, rich, and consists of various layers of political, intelligence, military, and civilian cooperation. The Mossad established a branch in Morocco in 1963. The need to regulate Jewish immigration was an important incentive for cooperation between Israel the Moroccan institution. This led to a relationship that lasted for many years. Militarily, Israel assisted Morocco in its fight against the Algerian-backed Western Sahara Polisario Front and fought for the region's independence. After Spain decided to evacuate this territory in 1975, Morocco decided to take over large areas. The Israeli assistance mainly included consulting in the construction of a security fence made of sand and trenches. The expansion of civil ties was made possible, among other things, by the existence of tourism ties. These ties began in the 1980s. In 2019 alone, about 45,000 Israelis visited Morocco, even though there were no direct flights. Source: Walla News ?? IF YOU LOVE ISRAEL - SHARE NEWSRAEL! ??
