The United Socialist Party of Morocco announced the expulsion of one of its members for participating in a friendly football match against an Israeli team.
The party’s branch in the Safi region of Marrakesh, in the west of the country, said in a statement that “following what the party member, Abdellatif Azrieh, did by participating in a normalization match organized by the regional league branch, it was decided to announce his expulsion from the party in accordance with the legal articles.”
The statement pointed out that “what Azrie did contradicts the party’s established values and principles in support of the Palestinian cause, and represents a serious deviation from the party’s directives.”
The party renewed its condemnation and denunciation of all forms of normalization with what the statement described as a “racist entity”, stating that what Azriah did was a reckless behavior, and he represented only himself and those who advocated the Israeli team.
He added: “This behavior does not represent Safi or its residents. Rather, it represents only those who call and this scramble towards Zionist normalization.”
He continued, “We reject all forms of normalization with the entity under any pretext or name, whether it is cultural, educational or even sports.”
And last week, a friendly football match took place between an Israeli team and another from the city of Safi, which included old players and representatives of sports associations in the region, in addition to members of the Safi branch of the Regional Football League, the organizer of the football match, and the sponsor of the Israeli team.

It is expected that the officials of the tour, which invited the Israeli team, will invite a team from Safi for another interview in Tel Aviv.
The “United Socialist” is considered one of the parties opposing the normalization of relations between Rabat and Tel Aviv.
