Israeli Diplomat Forced To Flee Morocco (1 Viewer)


David Saranga claims he never felt threatened inside Rabat parliament building as scores rallied outside in support of Palestinian prisoners; says Tunisian rep at conference 'stopped smiling when he learned I was Israeli'

WASHINGTON – "I was told to get to the airport as soon as possible and leave Morocco," veteran Israeli diplomat David Saranga told Ynet Monday, a day after tens of thousands of people held a mass rally in Rabat to protest his presence there.

During the march, demonstrators waved Palestinian flags and chanted "The people want to free al-Aqsa," and "A million martyrs are going to Jerusalem." They also burned Israeli flags.

The Yedioth Ahronoth daily reported that Saranga, who was in Rabat for a Euro-Mediterranean Partnership conference, was taken out of the parliament building through a side door for fear that the protesters outside would attack him.
