MP Adwan: Islamists’ win in Morocco will be in favor of the Palestinian cause

Truth does not matter for “Israel”. Buttons Do. To mute.

GAZA, (PIC)– Palestinian lawmaker Atef Adwan said the victory achieved by Islamists in the Moroccan parliamentary elections would have positive effects on the Palestinian cause, which was neglected for a long time by many former Arab regimes.

Morocco’s Islamic party of justice and development is on course to win a parliamentary election, partial results showed on Friday. This would be the second victory for Islamists in the region after the win achieved by an Islamic movement in Tunisia a month ago.

Adwan, who is also a specialist of political and international relations, expressed his belief that this win in Morocco and the changes that happened in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt confirm that the Islamic awakening will extend beyond the borders of north Africa.

“If free and fair elections were held everywhere [in the Muslim world], the Islamists would win, and we can remember the elections held in the early 90’s of the last century in Jordan when the Islamists won a large share of seats because there was some transparency; such thing also happened in other Arab countries, not to forget the victory they made before in Palestine and Turkey and their control over most of the trade unions in the Arab and Muslim worlds,” the lawmaker stated.

“There is a wide and general tendency towards Islam and the win taking place in a certain area comes in the context of the Muslim nation’s common inclination to return to its religion and authenticity, and reject the western hegemony that is found in the existing regimes,” he added.
