Morocco-Israel: the new Israeli government faces the challenge of maintaining the dynamics of bilateral relations

Although relations between Rabat and Tel Aviv have flourished following the signing of several cooperation agreements, the new Israeli government led by Benjamin Netanyahu will face the challenge of “maintaining the positive momentum of religious and cultural normalization” with Morocco, the Israeli Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) said in a report.

According to the three co-editors of the report, “the positive momentum in Israeli-Moroccan relations cannot be taken for granted in light of the challenges facing these relations, the first of which is the Palestinian issue.

“The new Israeli government will have to invest carefully to maintain the current pace of normalization. However, Morocco expects clear support from its allies, including Israel,” the researchers point out, adding that “Morocco considers Israelis of Moroccan origin as part of its community abroad, and refers to this community as the second largest Moroccan community after its community in France,” the same source adds.

And to recall that “since the signing of the agreement to resume relations between Israel and Morocco on December 22, 2020, the Moroccan government has intensified its national project to revive the Moroccan Jewish heritage.
