EXPORTING OCCUPATION: ‘ISRAELI’ BUSINESS IS BOOMING IN MOROCCO-OCCUPIED WESTERN SAHARA

Feature photo | Illustration by MintPress News In December 22, 2020, Israel and Morocco officially normalized relations after former President Donald Trump’s administration declared occupied Western Sahara as Moroccan. In the years following, Israeli companies have boosted their business involvement in Western Sahara, suggesting the pair’s cooperation is fueling each other’s land theft. In 1975, Morocco annexed part of Western Sahara – a region indigenous to the Sahrawi people – and its entirety in 1979. Few have accepted these actions: today, 82 countries recognize Western Sahara’s independence, while only the United States recognizes Moroccan sovereignty over the land. “THE WORST OF THE WORST” While Israel hasn’t officially recognized Western Sahara as part of ...

Why—and How—Algeria Should Make Peace with Morocco

In which a conflict is summarized, and an exit strategy offered KEVIN BARRETT  I’m writing from a rooftop room in Saidia, Morocco. My third-floor perch offers a soul-stirring view of the seaside mountains of Algeria. At night I can see the lights of cars from Marsa Ben M’Hidi, the Algerian coastal town across the Kiss River from Saidia, crawling up the mountain road to Adjeroud. When the ripe full moon hangs low over the Algerian mountains, the ascending car lights look like they’re heading into lunar orbit. But though Algeria is right across a mostly-dry riverbed, Moroccans who want to visit relatives there might as well try flying to the moon. The guarded, barbed wire wrapped border has been closed since 1994. Admittedly the moon may be slightly less accessible than Alge...

Morocco wants to safeguard economy with BRICS membership, analyst tells RT

The Western world has marginalized many third-world countries, says Amine Ayoub © AFP / Fadel Senna Morocco’s bid to join BRICS is driven by the desire to protect its economy amid the neglect of many third-world nations by Western powers, particularly the US, economic and policy analyst Amine Ayoub has said.  In an interview with RT on Thursday, Ayoub explained that Rabat is actively seeking new partners due to shifts in priorities by its former Western economic allies, which retracted investments in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic.  Morocco is the latest country to formally apply to become a member of BRICS, which is made up of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.   South Africa’s ambassador-at-large to BRICS and Asia, Anil Sooklal...

US to build military industrial base in Morocco

Aerial photograph of Nouasseur Air Base near Casablanca in Morocco [wikipedia]January 17, 2023 at 11:19 am US President Joe Biden has instructed Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin to prepare an emergency plan to establish an American military industrial base in the Kingdom of Morocco, the New York Daily News has reported.

The strengthening of Rabat's leading role in combating terrorism, as well as its integration into the international military equation, will be achieved by developing its technic...

The price of betraying Palestine: Moroccans challenge normalisation with the Nazi regime

The price of betraying Palestine: Moroccans challenge normalisation with Israel People gather to stage a demonstration in support of Palestinians and to protest against Israeli attacks on Gaza Strip, on May 15, 2021 in Rabat, Morocco. [Jalal Morchidi/Anadolu Agency] Dr Ramzy Baroude Two years ago, Morocco and Israel signed the US-brokered "Joint Declaration", thus officially recognising Israel and instating diplomatic ties. Though other Arab countries had already done the same, the Moroccan official recognition of Apartheid Israel was particularly devastating for Palestinians. Years ago, a close Moroccan friend told me that the 'first time' he was arrested was during a solidarity protest for Palestine in Rabat which took place many years ago. The reference to ...

Moroccans, Palestinians Say No to Normalization in Historic World Cup Match (PHOTOS)

Palestinians in Gaza celebrate Moroccan victory over Spain. (Photo: Mahmoud Ajjour, The Palestine Chronicle) By Palestine Chronicle Staff The Moroccan national team, known as the Atlas Lions, made history today when they won against Spain, one of the world’s leading national football teams. Hakim Ziyech and his squad played a mostly defensive game with a strategy that relied mainly on counterattacks. With such international football stars as Ziyech, Achraf Hakimi, and Morocco’s legendary goalkeeper Yassine Bounou (‘Bono’), the Atlas Lions succeeded in reaching the end of the match without conceding any goals, considering that Spain had most of the possession.  It was in the penalty shootout that Moroccan players truly shined. Bounou proved to be one of the bes...
