The attacks of the EP against Morocco deciphered by a former US congressman | MoroccoLatestNews French

The former American congressman, Michael Patrick Flanagan has just published a long analysis in which he deciphers the backstage of an unjust and fictitious “systematic” campaign, pointing the finger at Algeria’s involvement in this affair.

In this column, entitled “The hidden reasons behind the attacks of the European Parliament against Morocco”, published this week in the American electronic newspaper Newslooks, the lawyer, ex-Congressman and former army captain pointed out that the attacks ” systematic “that Morocco is currently undergoing” go beyond the ordinary political and diplomatic engagement between States and institutions“, noting that these attacks constitute a “ direct interference in the internal affairs of sovereign states“.

Reviewing the measures that Morocco has recently taken in its foreign relations, Flanagan said in this analysis that the real actors of these actions become ” clear“, before questioning who could oppose the restoration of relations between Morocco and Israel or the strengthening of US-Moroccan relations ” after the recognition by the United States of Morocco’s sovereignty over the Sahara?“. The ex-congressman came to a conclusion: “ I believe there is a hidden agenda“.

For the politician, there is no doubt that the economic development plans as well as the human rights programs that the Moroccan Sovereign has sponsored since his accession to the throne, ” have worried some European countries and their petty ambitions“. In this regard, he recalled that Morocco’s exit from the position of dependence vis-à-vis the EU States is not firmly in the interest of Europe in general, and of France in particular.

This move towards transatlantic relations in North America has raised concerns about the former dominance of trans-Mediterranean trading partners in Moroccan markets“, he asserted.

Michael Flanagan continues: “ Thanks to its economic policies, its social and political stability and its unique religious coexistence, Morocco has become very attractive to world markets. European domination of Moroccan markets has come to an end and the EU (with France in particular) is fighting back with spurious claims in the European Parliament“.

The former congressman notably seized the opportunity to return to the plenary of the Moroccan Parliament devoted to the discussion of the attacks “scandalous and repeated” of the EP against Morocco, evoking the condemnation of the two chambers for the hostile actions carried out against Morocco, constituting an interference in the internal affairs of the Kingdom and the declarations of Rachid Talbi Alami and Lahcen Haddad.

Flanagan puts it clearly: “ The hand of Algeria in this affair is obvious“. He points out in his analysis that Algerian gas is now on the minds of EU member states“, linking this interest to soaring energy prices and lost contracts due to the Russian-Ukrainian war, showing ” clearly the current position of the EU not to offend Algeria in any way. Morocco must be slandered in order to satisfy its Algerian gas suppliers“.

And to add: To advance its Polisario agenda and fuel its longstanding expansionist ambitions in Africa, Algeria is asking the EU to bring baseless accusations against Morocco“.

In addition, Europe has a long-standing interest in hampering Moroccan growth in global markets beyond regional ones. To these ends, the EU is negatively distorting the image of the country in order to keep it under the European umbrella as a consumer market, the former congressman explains.

To simplify the equation, Michael Flanagan points to Franco-Algerian relations which ” show, tangible proof, that the attack carried out by certain members of the European Parliament hides the Algerian plan aimed at hitting Moroccan-European relations“, adding ” in simple terms, it is Algerian gas in exchange for hostility towards Morocco“.

Addressing the allies and public opinion, the former congressman believes that he ” it is better that we take the responsibility today to prove to our friends in Morocco that we appreciate their choices and appreciate their sacrifices“.

We must view a diplomatic attack on Morocco as an attack on U.S.-Moroccan relations and our shared strategic interest in North Africa and the Middle East.“, he continues.

To conclude his analysis, the American expert challenged the parties involved in these attacks with a series of questions: “Wasn’t it Morocco who sent its sons to liberate Europe from Nazi invasion?, wasn’t it Morocco who sent its sons to build bridges, airports and factories in Europe after the Second World War?, isn’t it Morocco which successfully fights against the problem of illegal immigration to Europe via the Strait of Gibraltar? isn’t it Morocco which dismantles hundreds of terrorist cells every year and ensures the safety and security of its people as well as that of European countries? is it not Morocco that contributes alongside European and American forces at all times to ensure world peace and security?, is it not Morocco that prevented the Nazis from capturing and executing its Jewish citizens? Wasn’t Morocco the initiator of all the peace mediations between Israelis and Palestinians? wasn’t it Morocco which was the first country to recognize our independence in 1777 and which has been our faithful friend ever since?”.
