Uae Agreement With Israel

Because then the Trump administration is trying to convey precisely this counterparty, this agreement, this trade-off. And without that letter, it probably would never have happened, at least not now. But what he discovered was that the Europeans opposed it, the Arab states opposed it, including its future potential allies in the Gulf. And in fact, it`s interesting to note that the Trump administration wasn`t enthusiastic about it either. Partly because the United States and others have talked about it in the United States, it is a red line for us. We cannot support your peace efforts if Israel takes this step. “This is a historic evening,” Netanyahu said at a news conference. “Today began a new era in the relations of the State of Israel with the Arab world.” Israeli President Reuven Rivlin invited Prince Mohammed to visit Jerusalem, while the Tel Aviv-Yafo commune building was illuminated by the flags of Israel and the UAE. First of all, he gets something that Israel has long wanted, which is to increase the list of its Arab neighbors who recognize him and have normal relations with him.

From an Israeli point of view, it is extremely important to have the U.A.E. in its corner, because the U.A.E. has a great influence on Saudi Arabia. And Saudi Arabia is the big player in this area. It is the first Arab country in the Gulf. This is the country that Israel wants the most recognition of, most want to normalize relations. It`s on one side. On the other hand, from the point of view of the United Arab Emirates, the key to this agreement is that Israel has agreed not to annex the occupied Palestinian territories in the West Bank. If you recall, Prime Minister Netanyahu said he intended to de-trade these territories.

There are two main reasons why Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed (ZZ) has broken with the politics of recent years. First, the Arab peace initiative has failed to make progress towards the Palestinian state. Second, and more importantly, the changing strategic environment has increased the benefits of standardization while reducing risk. Daoud Kuttab, a Palestinian journalist, argued that the agreement was in fact overstated by all parties. “The UAE has already normalized relations and the annexation plan has already been postponed,” he wrote on Twitter. “No one is a winner in this despite the Hoopla, which we will hear about for a while. The United Arab Emirates broke the Arab peace plan without getting anything of value. A3: Probably not so close. The Saud family has had a special relationship with the clerical establishment since 1744, and many of these clerics would criticize what they consider to be a task of Palestine. Saudi Arabia is also the site of Islam`s two most sacred mosques (the third holiest is in Jerusalem), and it sees a special role for itself at the head of the Muslim world.
