The normalization of Morocco
Morocco began relations with Israel at a low level in 1993, after the signing of the “Oslo” agreement between the Palestine Liberation Organization and Tel Aviv.
However, Rabat froze those relations in 2002, following the outbreak of the second Palestinian intifada (Al-Aqsa Intifada).
On September 22, 2000, Israeli businessmen, representing 24 companies specializing in agricultural technologies, visited Morocco. At the invitation of the Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Services in Casablanca.
The volume of trade exchange between the two countries reached about 50 million dollars in 1999, and about 50 thousand Israelis visited Morocco that year. According to the Israeli Liaison Office in the Kingdom.
Morocco became the fourth Arab country to agree to normalization with Israel, during 2020, after the UAE, Bahrain and Sudan.
In turn, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described Trump’s announcement of establishing relations between Israel and Morocco as historic. And that it will be a warm peace and will accelerate the consolidation of relations between the two countries and the launch of direct flights between them at an early date.
Hamas and the Authority: a political sin … for a purely personal purpose
On the other hand, the Islamic Resistance Movement, Hamas, denounced the announcement of the normalization agreement between the Kingdom of Morocco and Israel and said that this step is considered. A political sin that does not serve the Palestinian cause.
For his part, Nabil Shaath, Special Representative of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said, “Trump’s announcement of Israeli-Moroccan normalization suggests that he took place in Morocco. With the pressures, measures and temptations he has done in Sudan, Bahrain and the Emirates, the aim of which is purely personal.
Morocco’s gains from normalization ?!
A report by the Turkish “Anadolu Agency” highlighted the reasons that will lead to Morocco’s economic loss from normalization with Israel, more than the gains it will achieve.
The report said that many questions were raised after the signing of the normalization agreement in Rabat, four agreements on the sidelines of the signing. Agreement to resume relations between the two countries under American auspices.
Four economic agreements
According to the report, the four agreements signed on the sidelines of the first visit by Israeli and American delegations via a direct flight. Between Tel Aviv and Rabat, in the economic, commercial and tourism fields. According to a statement by the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The first agreement relates to exemption from visa procedures for holders of diplomatic and service passports. While the second is a memorandum of understanding in the field of civil aviation, and the third is a memorandum of understanding on “innovation and water resource development”.
The fourth agreement provides for the revival of economic relations between the two countries, through trade and investment. In addition to negotiating other agreements that frame these relationships.
Moroccan-Israeli cooperation and work teams
In the context, the head of the Israeli mission in Morocco, David Guverin, during his meeting in Rabat, said, “The volume of activities. And cooperation between Morocco and Israel has become much greater and wider than it was 20 years ago.
For its part, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said, “The head of the Israeli National Security Agency and the Moroccan Foreign Minister. They agreed to form task forces.
According to the office, these teams will work to reach cooperation agreements between the two countries in many fields. These include investments, agriculture, water, the environment, tourism, science, innovation and energy.
Changes in the economic relationship
Moroccan economist Najib Aksabi said, “To this day, there are no formal economic relations between Morocco and Israel.”
He asked: “What new data can we rely on to forecast profit and loss? .. Today there are only consultations and contacts.”
He continued: “There is no agreement concluded as is internationally recognized, and which was signed in Rabat is just general directions and a declaration of good intentions.”
He added, “Everyone knows that there are commercial transactions between Morocco and Israel, but they are not announced.”
He stressed that “with regard to agriculture, for example, since the beginning of the eighties there have been cooperation relations, and Morocco has been importing Israeli products.”
Morocco and normalization are full-fledged relations
For his part, Moroccan economist Mahdi Oufkir believes that “it is too early to talk about full-fledged Israeli economic relations. The issue has not yet gone beyond its political and sovereign nature.
Oufkir added, “Given the current circumstances, it is difficult to talk about the prospects for economic relations between the two countries … Let’s wait a little.” And they may be strong political signals, which may lead to a greater solution.
The Moroccan expert added: “We must avoid believing in the existence of complete economic relations, given the geographical dimension. Relationships may not go beyond the transfer of expertise in some areas.
Profit and loss accounts for the normalization agreement
On the question of profit and loss, Aksabi believes that “In practice, when we compare, we find ourselves facing two completely different economies. The Israeli economy is quantitatively representing four times the Moroccan economy ”.
He continued: “The Israeli gross domestic product is about $ 400 billion, and Morocco’s internal product is $ 115 billion. The GDP per capita is 40-45 thousand dollars in Israel, and in Morocco 3000 dollars.
The economist considered that “these indicators confirm that there are economic relations between the two parties. We are facing the model of an advanced country dealing with an underdeveloped country, ”as he put it.
He added: “If we look at the structure of Israel’s exports and the structure of Morocco’s exports, we note with regret that Israel has something to export to Morocco. Morocco has nothing to export to Israel.
And he continued, “Consequently, it will become a market for Israel only.” Pointing out that Israel has high value-added exports, in terms of knowledge and science. It has important commercial value, and the balance of profit will tilt in its favor.
The biggest loss and imagined profit for Morocco
For his part, Omar El Kettani, professor at Mohammed V University in Rabat (government), went on to say. That “loss is more important than profit for the Kingdom of Morocco.”
He continued: “Morocco will first lose the principle of non-recognition of the Zionist entity, and the gain is America’s recognition of the Sahara. It is linked to the economic, political and perhaps military landing in the country.
Kattani added: “The economic profit from the normalization agreement will be very simple for Morocco, but it has a kind of arrogance and a kind. From the belief that major investments will reach the Moroccan Sahara. ”
He added, “But I do not trust the expected profit, and the evidence is that when Moroccan-Israeli cooperation took place for decades in the agricultural field. We imported a malicious disease that infected Moroccan tomatoes.
The academic Morocco added: “Moroccan tomatoes are still suffering from a virulent disease that the Zionist entity exported to us for years. We lost several markets abroad because of it.
