Israel Policy Forum welcomes the opening of diplomatic relations between Israel and Morocco. This is a particularly meaningful step for the large population of Israeli Jews of Moroccan heritage. We also recognize that unilateral American recognition of Moroccan claims to Western Sahara may have global precedent-setting ramifications, including for the West Bank, and we hope that normalization between Israel and Morocco, as with other normalization agreements, contributes to resolving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through a viable two-state outcome rather than making it harder to achieve.
