Abraham Serfaty was a Moroccan Jew , but also an anti- Zionist Jew who did not recognize the State of Israel and was outraged by what he saw as the mistreatment of the Palestinians. In , Serfaty left the Communist Party, which he considered to be too doctrinarian and became deeply involved in the establishment of a Marxist-Leninist left-wing organization called " Ila al-Amam " En Avant in French, Forward in English.

In January , he was arrested for the first time and savagely tortured, but released after heavy popular pressure. As he was again targeted for his continuing fight, Serfaty went underground in March , with one of his friends Abdellatif Zeroual , who was also wanted by the authorities. It was then that he met for the first time Christine Daure, a French teacher who then helped both men to hide. After several months of hiding, Abraham Serfaty and Abdellatif Zeroual were arrested again in After their arrest, Abdellatif Zeroual died, a victim of torture.

He found a haven in France, with his wife, Christine Daure-Serfaty. From to , Serfaty taught at the University of Paris-VIII, in the department of political sciences, on the theme of "identities and democracy in the Arab world". Eight years after his exile and two months after the death of King Hassan II , he was finally allowed by the new king to return to Morocco in September , and had his Moroccan passport restored to him. He then settled at Mohammedia with his wife Christine in a house made available to them and even received a monthly stipend.

This nomination did not stop him for asking, in December , the then Moroccan Prime Minister Abderrahmane Youssoufi to resign after the attacks on the independent newspapers and magazines and restrictions of their rights and freedom of speech.

Serfaty died in Marrakech , Morocco in November Abraham Serfaty was a fervent anti-zionist , to the extent that he declared that Zionism had nothing to do with Judaism. He moreover stated that the jews had no right to Palestine, especially Jerusalem and the Western Wall. He stated that it was all lies to make them part of Judaism. He led several demonstrations supporting the Palestinian people, especially during the zionist jewish army air raids on Gaza , stating that Jerusalem was the capital of Palestine and that the jews, especially zionist jews, were liars, criminals, and had no right to it.

He lived, upon his return to his country from exile isolated and avoided by the rest of the jewish Moroccan community. Only two official representatives of the Moroccan Jewish community were present at his burial. His funeral at the Jewish cemetery in Rabat was solely attended by Moroccan muslims, on account of his political stance regarding the Palestinian issue. Awards and honors[ edit ].

Dissent in Morocco: From Abraham Serfaty to Nasser Zefzafi

Serfaty was an avowed communist and anti-colonial nationalist who opposed the French protectorate in Morocco. As a leading Marxist-Leninist activist, he was first arrested and exiled by French colonial authorities in the early s, then imprisoned for 17 years and stripped of his citizenship by the Moroccan monarchy in the following decades. Serfaty passed away just months before the wave of Arab uprisings hit Morocco in February His passing in November - just a month before Tunisian street vendor Mohamed Bouazizi set himself on fire sparking the Arab uprisings - symbolically marked the advent of a new generation of protest movements in Morocco. Unlike the formally organised and ideologically motivated opposition forces that Serfaty led in the s, the current forms and methods of activism in Morocco are leaderless, non-ideological, and often triggered by accidental events emblematic of the everyday socioeconomic struggles of the general population.
