2M and the Moroccan Cinema Center Accused of Promoting Normalization with Israel

The Moroccan Observatory for the Fight against Normalization with Israel accused 2M and the Moroccan Cinema Center of promoting normalization with the State of Israel, following the channel’s broadcast, on the day before Eid al-Fitr, of a musical evening in which Israeli musicians took part, while the Moroccan Cinema Center presented a film considered by the Observatory as Zionist propaganda.

In a press release circulated to the media and published on its Facebook page, the Observatory stated that 2M presented, on the day before Eid al-Fitr, a musical evening with the participation of Israeli artist Tom Cohen, conductor of the Al-Quds orchestra, in the presence of Israeli singer Neta Elkayam and a group of Moroccan musicians and artists. At the same time, the Moroccan Cinema Center presented a Zionist propaganda film promoting normalization with Israel. It is the film “Tinghir-Jerusalem, Echoes of the Mellah”, by Moroccan director Kamal Hachkar, which has already been shown in several international festivals and won numerous awards, just as it was already broadcast by 2M years ago. The film tells the story of the Amazigh roots of some Moroccan Jews who immigrated to Israel.

The observatory expressed not only its disapproval of the presentation of the show and the film, which took place on the occasion of the Aid Al Fitr, and coincided with the anniversary of the Nakba, but warned against what it called “the seriousness of the agenda of welcoming the appointment of many ministers of Moroccan origin in the new Netanyahu government, in the context of promoting the ‘deal’, the Sahara issue in exchange for normalization. »

It should be noted that many Moroccan Jewish artists residing in Israel regularly visit Morocco and participate in many of its festivals, including the Festival of Atlantic Andalusia, held in Essaouira, which offers beautiful encounters with artists from all over the world, and which is attended by Moroccans thirsty for their heritage. it is considered a nostalgic moment for Moroccan Jewish artists, who are always eager to rediscover their roots.
