Poll: Big Disconnect in Morocco Regarding Supporting Israel


Arab Barometer asked citizens in Morocco about their views on the normalisation between their country and Israel, and 64% either strongly opposed (34%) or opposed (30%) it. On the other hand, only 32% of Moroccans said they favour (25%) or strongly favour (7%) normalisation. 

While Morocco did not have formal diplomatic relations with Israel until 2020, the relationship between the two was secretly maintained after the establishment of Israel in 1948. On December 10, 2020, Israel and Morocco agreed to establish diplomatic relations, with Rabat becoming the sixth Arab League member to recognise Israel and the fourth in the space of four months, along with Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and Sudan.

What we can remember in this survey is that despite the agreements, negotiations and normalization that the States seek to achieve today, this survey shows us once again that it will not be easy for leaders to fool the Muslim and deceive them between the good guys and the bad guys. The Umma knows its ally and its enemy, the Umma knows the criminals and the sincere who work for the rights of Muslims. These figures are only a small sample of what Muslims think of the politics of the rulers who govern Muslim countries.
