“The Al-Aqsa Flood” brought Moroccans out to protest and restored the spirit to support the Palestinian cause – Al-Youm 24

The protest marches in Morocco in support of the Palestinian cause are among the most prominent events of the year 2023, as the “Al-Aqsa Flood” attributed to the squares and squares their struggles and expressions of support for the cause, at a time when it was believed that “official normalization” had definitely ended – since the tripartite agreement – all components of “protest.” Popular.”

Blow of the century

October 7, 2023 An exceptional event. It is exactly what the Hamas movement described it: “the strike of the century,” where the entire world, including its superpowers – which sense all movements and frame all changes – was surprised by a sudden military “flood” led by the Palestinian factions, led by the “Hamas” movement, which led to the upending of all the balance. In the region, bringing the Palestinian issue back to the forefront of the global and humanitarian event.

Genocide and bloody crimes

Only a few days passed after the flood of the Palestinian Al-Aqsa, which came “in defense of the land and in response to the attacks of the Israeli occupation,” and the occupation, backed by world powers, launched a military operation described as “an extermination operation.”

The occupation primarily targeted civilians. Children and women in particular, as well as buildings, places of worship, journalists, hospitals, doctors, and ambulances, making the occupation a “grinding” military operation that lasted for nearly 100 days, and its toll reached more than 20,000 martyrs.

Popular deluge

The Islamic world was shaken, as was the human conscience, and millions came out in all parts of the world, including the Western world, to express their “rejection of the occupation operations aimed at exterminating a people,” chanting slogans strongly condemning “the heinous humanitarian violations committed against defenseless civilians,” the opposite of what the “occupation” promotes. , which says that it is carrying out a specific military operation to “eliminate the Hamas movement and destroy the tunnels.”

In Morocco, the popular flood began, and all political factions and organizations supporting the Palestinian cause and all the people, men, women and children, poured into the squares and squares, demanding “an end to the aggression of the Israeli occupation,” and insisting on “ending the normalization agreements with the Zionist entity.”

“A huge march”

The year 2023 witnessed an exceptional event at the national level, as the “flood” of resistance had a “roar” in the protest squares, and it also restored spirit to the struggles in support of the Palestinian cause, at a time when it was believed that they had ended with the path of official normalization with the “Zionist entity.” .

October 15, 2023 was a crucial date with a “huge march” in which all political factions and organizations supporting the Palestinian cause united, as the protesting crowds extended from in front of the Rabat Medina train station, passing through Mohammed V Street in front of Parliament, and reaching the road intersection leading to Bab El Had.

On this long, extended path; It raised clear slogans directed at home and abroad, denouncing the “crimes of the Israeli occupation,” expressing its “unconditional support for the Gazans,” then demanding, in the same context, “an end to official normalization with the Zionist entity.”

Normalization is at stake

The emergence of a march of this size, and its continuation in all Moroccan cities, in addition to all sectors of Moroccan society denouncing “Israeli crimes” every week in protest marches, made the official normalization with the Zionist entity – which began since the signing of the tripartite agreement and began to expand in the form of agreements and visits – an issue. A real touchstone.

On October 18, 2023, multiple sources reported that the staff of the Israeli liaison office in Rabat was evacuated, as was the case for embassies in a group of world capitals whose ambassadorial duties were terminated, in protest against “the crimes committed by Israel in its war on the Gaza Strip.”

The official position

The pulse of the street was certainly in harmony with the official position on the Israeli aggression. Although the communications issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as a whole sought to “select expressions,” King Mohammed VI was clear and direct in a letter he addressed on November 29, 2023 to the Chairman of the Committee concerned with the exercise of the rights of the Palestinian people. Inalienable, on the occasion of the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.

Mohammed VI, as Chairman of the Al-Quds Al-Sharif Committee, said that “Israeli military retaliatory actions in the Gaza Strip revealed grave violations that contradict the provisions of international law and international humanitarian law.”

The King expressed his rejection and condemnation of “all violations, the policy of collective punishment, forced displacement, and the attempt to impose a new reality,” stressing that “the Gaza Strip is an integral part of the Palestinian territories and the unified Palestinian state.”
