Moroccan Nationalists Inaugurate Week of Propaganda Against Israel

April 7, 1964
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The Moroccan nationalist Istiqlal Party today opened its “Palestine Week,” comprising a series of anti-Israel events in this city. Similar activity had also been scheduled for the capital city of Rabat, but the governor there prohibited it. Istiqlal, an opposition party, has charged the Moroccan Government with doing nothing about the “Palestine problem.”

During this week, the party leaders in Casablanca will outline the Istiqlal position on problems such as Israel’s Jordan River irrigation project and Zionism in general. Istiqlal is the only Moroccan party participating in “Palestine Week, ” which is patterned after a similar series of events held in Algeria two months ago.
