Any action taken by Morocco cannot be dissociated from the will to achieve peace and stability in the Middle East, Lebanese writer and journalist Khairallah Khairallah said.
In a region undermined by confusion and turmoil, the need for continuity, clarity and honesty have become more and more pressing, Khairallah wrote in a story entitled "Moroccan continuity" and published Friday by the London-based Newspaper Al-Arab.
Morocco is not an ordinary country that seeks to exploit the Palestinian cause and sell illusions, he said, stressing the special bond between HM King Mohammed VI and every Moroccan citizen. "Moroccans are "aware of what has been achieved in two decades at all levels in the light of continuity."
According to the author, this continuity is enshrined in particular in the institution of Imarate Al Mouminine (Commandery of the Faithful), embodied by HM King Mohammed VI, guarantor of the spiritual security of the Ummah.
Referring to the thousand-year tradition of peaceful coexistence and tolerance in Morocco, Khairallah recalled the role played by the late HM King Mohammed V in protecting citizens of Jewish faith against Nazism.
"The King of Morocco has always been honest with himself and with his people. The clarity of the statement issued by the Royal Office at the end of the audience granted to the US-Israeli delegation at the Royal Palace in Rabat a few days ago was striking," Khairallah observed. For centuries, the Kingdom has never ceased to give lessons of patriotism, honesty, clarity and political continuity," he added.
The Lebanese writer stressed that the major challenges that marked the year 2020 have not prevented Morocco from looking to the future, with the consecration of the Moroccanness of the Sahara and by ending this artificial conflict, which has become an instrument of Algerian blackmail since 1975, when the Kingdom recovered its Sahara from the Spanish colonizer.
On Washington's recognition of the Moroccanness of the Sahara, the author stressed that the Kingdom has made this gain without abandoning any of the principles it believes in, namely the special relationship linking the Kingdom to the Moroccan Jewish community as well as Morocco's unwavering support for the just Palestinian cause and for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
