RABAT, Morocco — Morocco is becoming more involved in the Palestinian cause of late, staging a variety of events throughout May with the participation of Palestinian political parties and Moroccan organizations and institutions.
 
On May 5, the Moroccan National Working Group for Palestine organized a political seminar in Rabat that brought together representatives of various Palestinian political parties, including Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri, Fatah Central Committee member Abbas Zaki, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) member Maher al-Tahir and Munir Shafiq, secretary-general of the Popular Conference for Palestinians Abroad. The seminar focused on developments related to the plight of the Palestinians, most notably the faltering Palestinian reconciliation process and the controversial May 14 move of the US Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
