The story says that during the era of the famous Imam of Yemen (Ahmed Hamid al-Din), a citizen was subjected to a grievance. When he read it to him, the man sighed in tears, and the writer said: Malik is you crying, O you ?! The man said: By God, I do not know that I am wronged until today.
Do Moroccans know that they have endowments in their name in Jerusalem since the Ayyubid era? Why was the first decision of the Zionist entity to demolish the entire Maghribi neighborhood and erase its traces? Why don’t we hear about the original inhabitants of the Moroccan Jerusalemites? Why did the attacking Jews seize the key to the “Mughrabi Gate” and not the rest of the gates of Al-Quds Al-Sharif? Does the new generation of Moroccans know that their ancestors traveled for Hajj and jihad and contributed to achieving victory? Will Morocco one day demand the rights of the usurped Moroccan Jerusalemites?
a bit of history
After the crushing victory of Nasser Salah al-Din al-Ayyubi over the Crusaders in the Battle of Hattin, the Mujahideen of the countries expressed their desire to return to their homelands. On the reason for his adherence to Moroccans in particular, he said his famous saying:
I have made here those who persevere on the land and trample in the sea,
The best of those who are entrusted with the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
And after Nasser Salah El-Din, his eldest son, King Al-Afdal, Noureddine, arrested the “Maghrib neighborhood” of the Moroccans residing in Jerusalem. Its area is estimated at 45,000 square meters, or 5% of the area of Old Jerusalem, and this endowment that lasted for more than 800 years, until June. June 1967, when the first decision taken by the Zionist enemy after the occupation of Al-Aqsa Mosque was the demolition of the Mughrabi Quarter, as the hot racist bulldozers leveled the ground, and demolished more than 130 properties, including 4 mosques, and many endowments, and even destroyed some buildings, including the elderly The Zionists insisted on confiscating the key to the Mughrabi Gate, and it is still in their possession until now! Thus, the aggressor Jews wiped out the whole life of the Moroccans by demolishing the Moroccan Quarter, and they are the ones who made the Ayyubid king their judgments to them, and he did not give anyone a hand over them, and they enjoyed many advantages and characteristics in Jerusalem.And the activity of the Moroccans’ corner.” Visits of Moroccan scholars and travelers stopped, a whole Moroccan life that was beating there has been erased, and turned into a crying arena! They rushed in panic to shelters and burrows..!
Echo of the gift of Jerusalem
After a decade of Arab donations and recovery campaigns to restore the forthcoming Arab tyranny, the Zionist entity has felt great pride and height, as it enjoys the unconditional support of successive administrations over the rule of the United States, and it enjoys full coverage for its crimes against humanity, and it is always helped to get impunity His arrogance increased the wave of rushing and normalization from some Arab regimes, as it passed through the youth’s complete preoccupation with their daily concerns, and their indifference to the central issue, which has become forgotten! As for the new generation, its interests have been dispersed in social media platforms and spaces, and there is no room to talk about parties, movements, and civil society institutions across the Arab world and its breadth. You hardly feel anyone from them or hear them focus, except for some steadfast voices there in the Far Maghreb, who raised one of them. Its activists have a loud voice, “Bibio” in Tamazight, which corresponds to the expression “Wak Wak, servants of God”! And authored the book “Destruction at the Door”He warned against the encroachment of the process of normalization that is taking place secretly and publicly in his country, as if it were a cry in a valley. Therefore, the Zionist enemy estimated that the time was a very suitable time for further Judaization of the Holy Land, so it maliciously chose an occasion called “Quds Day” to impose its hegemony on the blessed land and its surroundings, and to carry out the process The obliteration of the Islamic aspects of Al-Quds Al-Sharif, and on the first day of Ramadan, the occupation forces stormed the courtyard of Al-Aqsa Mosque to cut the wires of the loudspeakers, so that the call to prayer and Tarawih prayers would not be heard from the four minarets of Al-Aqsa, as they want it to be a completely Jewish city, in line with the law of the state’s Judaism that they approved Forcibly and with the help of a president of a superpower in whom confidence was not renewed, he was expelled without regret, and the current president is still continuing on the path of his predecessors in protecting the terrorist entity, and his prime minister is a war criminal, accused of corruption, and is even threatened with imprisonment by the courts of his very entity!
And if 10 years of discrimination, at all levels, were enough for the racist entity to declare its great height, and openly usurp the remaining lands and homes during the day, desecrate Al-Aqsa Mosque, and forbid every Islamic aspect of the Old City, then only 10 days ignited the blessed land from under its feet. An unprecedented case of popular unity spread around Al-Quds Al-Sharif, the Palestine issue returned to its centrality, the blessed Al-Aqsa Mosque regained the focus of attention, and the components of the Palestinian people inside and outside lived an unprecedented unity, as everyone gathered for the first time around the steadfast resistance factions with all their valiant military arms, supported With the sympathy of Arab peoples and free people throughout the world.
The “Quds Day” – which the racist entity chose as a holiday for it on the occasion of the occupation of East Jerusalem in 1967 – was a memorable international day, as the peoples of the world came out denouncing the occupier and its crimes that spread like wildfire through all social networking sites, before their complicit administrations redressed and restricted publication through Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and WhatsApp.. in support and fear for the reputation of the aggressor, but the reality of the aggression was greater than blocking it, as its crimes against defenseless civilians, children and women, reached global public opinion, sometimes directly, which made the peoples of the world interact and sympathize with the right-holders from the neighborhood Sheikh Jarrah to steadfast Gaza, even if their governments support the occupying usurper! It is as if the heads of state are saying: We support “Israel” in practice with money, weapons and protection from punishment, and we leave the opportunity for you to express temporary anger! In keeping with the behavior of the hypocritical West, headed by the President of the United States, who came out bragging without the slightest shame, rightly.”Israel” is in defense of itself! It is the occupying aggressor, and worse than that, it considers the victims and those who resist the barbaric aggression “terrorists”, which was rejected by the peoples and the free people of the world who support the right of the Palestinian people to freedom, independence and a decent life.
It is indeed a historical case of coalescence, in which peoples and new generations united around the issue of Palestine, which everyone thought had disappeared from attention, in the minds and in the media, but there are voices in the Democratic Party itself, especially from the youth, who do not adopt the complete bias of the American administration towards ” Israel.” The enemy itself admitted in some of its newspapers that it lost the battle of narrative and awareness this time.
The gift of Morocco the most
And if Jerusalem had unleashed an unprecedented state of cohesion between all components of the Palestinian people at home and abroad, and linked the struggle of generations, then it was also a reason for the al-Aqsa Maghreb donation again to support the Noble Mosque, so who would have thought that the promoters of the slogan “Taza before Gaza”, recently They will completely disappear and allow the space to raise the slogan “We are all a ransom for the steadfast Palestine” which was repeated in nearly 60 cities in the regions of the honorable kingdom. The Palestinian and condemning the aggression of the occupation, rejecting normalization with a usurping entity. Rather, it is time for the captain and leftist icon, Abdel Rahman Benamr, to rise again from the “fall” of Land Day on the land of Rabat! And it’s time for him to go on his lofty path, and he is the sheikh who has reached the age of 88, and is still walking with his shoulders high, opposing all submission or normalization with the so-called “Israel”.Sometimes you will find him, when he is ninety, precedes the youth of the twentieths in the arenas of struggle and protest, and he is the genuine human rights defender and the noble fighter.
In a word: the gift of Jerusalem and the battle of the “sword of Jerusalem” restored matters to normal, and the Holy Land regained its position, which is the land that once included the “Moroccan Quarter” which our new generations must remember and not forget to regain it one day. The war of memory is no less important than the armed struggle. And if the Moroccan Jews have a “house of memory” in Essaouira that enjoys all the care and attention, then the Jerusalemites have a memory that should not be erased as the “Moroccan Quarter” was erased from its reel from the usurpers Jews.
On our way to the solidarity festival organized by the International Union of Muslim Scholars in Doha, the youth of the organizing committee caught my attention, most of whom were born after the Oslo Accords and the Second Intifada. They are all enthusiastic youth who were charged with organizing the first public protest rally known in Doha, and he ensured its success. The enrollment of a generation born after the Arab Spring, and its involvement in discussing the current events in the Al-Aqsa Mosque and Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood .. On the sidelines of the demonstration, I spotted a Moroccan child of less than ten years angry because of his being prevented from joining the festival! Because the organizing committee prevents children under 16 years of age from participating, it is truly a global gift of solidarity from Al-Quds Al-Sharif. The most beautiful thing about it is that the generation of the Nakba and the setback experienced despair and a general feeling of frustration in front of the crimes of the “indomitable army”! He was succeeded by the valiant generation of the uprising, who deservedly received the torch, manipulated the genius of the “Iron Dome” and mocked it as just a “paper dome”!..There is no doubt that the generation of the uprising will be succeeded by the generation of liberation, which will not only deliver its smart missile that confuses the Iron Dome, but its honorable feet will set foot on that blessed land and its surroundings, and on that day the believers will rejoice in the victory of God, and so on God dear.
