Jews and Zionism in Al-Maghrib Al-Arabi (in Arabic)

Auther : Abdul Malik K. Tamimi

 

Jews have lived in al Maghrib Al-Arabi since the third century B.C after the fall of Jerusalem and the expulsion of the Jews from Palestine. At that time some Jews emigrated to Al-Maghrib Al-Arabi and to Europe. Other Jewish immigrations into Al-Maghrib took place in later periods: during the Roman period and the Islamic conquest of Palestine, after the Fall of Andalus and the expulsion of the Arabic from Spain, and during the Western colonial period which began in the thirties of the nineteenth century, and continued though out the first half of the twentieth century.

During the colonial period, the Jews in al-Maghrib Al-Arabi supported the colonialists. The colonial administration courted the Jews and tried to win their loyalty and support, thus the Jews and the colonialists helped one another at the expense of the native Arabs. The Jews even agreed to become French citizens, thus they supported the French plan of merging Al-Maghrib Al-Arabi and of announcing it as a French territory.

Finally, the Zionist activities of the Jews in this area began as early as the rise of the International Zionist movement. The Zionist organizations in Al-Maghrib Al-Arabi took a passive stand towards the national struggle for independence, and they devoted all their activity to the arranging and supervising the emigration of the Jews of the area from al-Maghrib Al-Arabi to Palestine.
