While Palestinians groan under the jackboots of the occupiers of their homeland and the Zionists continue their desecration of Islam’s third holiest site, the al-Aqsa Mosque, the regime of a Muslim state that currently chairs the al-Quds Committee of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), is not only shamelessly dallying with Israel but accusing the Islamic Republic of creating disability in a region thousands of kilometers away from the borders of Iran.
Moroccan Foreign Minister Nasser Bourita, or more properly his boss, King Mohamed VI, should either see a psychiatrist to correct any mental disorders or summon up the courage to do away with pretensions to the Palestinian cause and Islamic unity by admitting their total subservience to Israel’s godfather, the US.
Bourita poured salt on the wounds of the Palestinian people by participating through video conference last Thursday in the annual conference of the anti-Arab and anti-Islamic US lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), and proudly bragging on ‘cordial’ relations between Rabat and Tel Aviv
He sent shockwaves throughout the Muslim world when he said: "All tools for cooperation with Israel are available, and also the political will.”
Then Bourita, to reaffirm Morocco’s treasonous credentials to his masters in Washington and Tel Aviv – similar to the traitorous regimes in Abu Dhabi and Manama – lashed out at the Islamic Republic of Iran for Tehran’s principled Islamic support for the Muslim people of Western Sahara.
He said "Iran’s activities in West Africa are damaging the moderate Islam that Morocco has been promoting for centuries in this region.”
Wonder, what he meant by ‘moderate’ Islam!
This is an entirely non-Islamic terminology and used by the enemies to try to undermine the Divine principles of Islam and to split Islamic ranks.
There is no such thing as ‘moderate’ Islam, or ‘radical’ Islam.
Islam is the set of beliefs taught by the Almighty’s Last and Greatest Messenger to mankind, Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) and embodied in the Heavenly Scripture, the Holy Qur’an.
Those adhering to these teachings are Muslims, while those ignoring them, or for that matter taking something and leaving the rest, cannot be called Muslims.
And as the Prophet has said: The one unconcerned about the affairs of (fellow) Muslims is not a Muslim.
So, the regime in Rabat ought to do a real soul-searching to determine whether or not it is adhering to Islamic values by dallying with the Zionists, dancing to the tunes of the US, depriving the Muslim people of Western Sahara of their right to freedom, and causing rift with Iran – solely because the Islamic Republic supports the aspirations of all Muslim people, in accordance with the message of the Holy Qur’an and the Sunnah (behaviour and practice) of Prophet Muhammad (SAWA).
Mr. Bourita, before participating in a conference of any anti-Islamic and anti-Arab body, and before accusing Iran of any interference, open up your eyes to see that the real meddler in North Africa and West Africa (or for that matter all over the world) is the US, while AIPAC is the most powerful Israeli lobby group in the US with profoundly negative influence over successive US administrations, as well as in Congress, the House of Representatives and the Senate.
If Morocco really wants the peace and progress of the Islamic Ummah, it should join Iran for practical support to the oppressed Palestinian Muslims and the sacred cause of the liberation of the occupied Islamic city of Bayt al-Moqaddas, instead of dalliance with the Zionists.
