Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) President Morton A. Klein and ZOA Chair Mark Levenson, Esq. released the following statement:

We congratulate President Trump and the leaders of Israel and Morocco on this historic and important step toward greater stability and peace in the region. Morocco and Israel have agreed to reopen their liaison offices, with the intention of opening embassies later. Official contacts, economic cooperation, and direct flights between the two countries will also commence. All of these steps – and we hope to see even more to follow – will enhance the security and prosperity of both countries. This is the fourth such agreement between Israel and a Muslim country in the last few months, all of which came about because of President Trump’s support of Israel and his commitment to peace in the region. We hope that the momentum of peace in the region will continue and grow in the years ahead.
