Sometimes you can find the best stories only in the Arabic media.

Palestine Today reports that a delegation of Moroccans began a visit to Israel this week. The visit will last several days.

The trip will include a visit to the Knesset, a field tour of Jerusalem, and visits to centers and museums — including the Yad Vashem — as well as some universities.

The delegation includes 11 people, including engineers, writers, directors, and businessmen — all who see the importance of dialogue and communication with their counterparts in Israel.

The delegates are also scheduled to visit Islamic holy sites.

These sorts of things are barely a blip on most Israelis’ radar, but Arabic media sites know that this sort of thing is the reality, and that the Argentina soccer fiasco is the exception that proves the rule. Thus, they publicize and decry any attempts to normalize relations with Israel.

The Arab world is moving closer to Israel, and no longer subscribes to the zero-sum reality of the Palestinians, who say that interacting with Israel hurts them and their dreams of a Palestinian state.

In fact, Morocco also set up a field hospital in Gaza in recent days.
