The deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates aims to fully normalise relations after decades of distrust and violence between the Jewish state, the Palestine Territories and their Arab allies

Israel talked of "history" and Palestinians of being "blindsided" after the surprise announcement of a deal to normalise relations between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates.

In a nationwide televised address, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the deal would lead to "full and formal peace" with the Gulf Arab state and voiced hope that other countries in the region would follow the UAE's example.

Mr Netanyahu said it also entailed acceding to a request from US President Donald Trump to "temporarily wait" on implementing the Israeli leader's pledge to annex parts of the West Bank.

The annexation plan is supported by the January 2020 Israeli-Palestinian peace plan of US President Donald Trump but widely rejected in the region

"It’s an incomparably exciting moment, a historic moment for peace in the Middle East," Mr Netanyahu said.

President of the Palestine Territories Mahmoud Abbas seemed to be taken by surprise by the Israel-UAE deal and was holding meetings with key aides. He has refused all political dealings with the Trump administration for more than two years, accusing it of taking a consistently pro-Israel stance.

Asked if the Palestinian Authority or Palestine Liberation Organization were aware the deal was coming, Hanan Ashrawi, a veteran Palestinian negotiator, told Reuters: “No. The PLO, the PA, the Palestinian leadership did not know this was coming. We were blindsided. Their secret dealings are now completely out in the open. It is a complete sell-out.”


Much use was made of the word "normalisation" - a term that has very different connotations on either side.

For Israel and the White House, it signified a welcome rapprochement with a key Gulf player in a region from which Israel has long been isolated, aside from two peace treaties with its immediate neighbours Egypt and Jordan.

But for many Palestinians, the word has overwhelmingly negative connotations.

Ms Ashrawi decried what she called the UAE's "secret dealings/normalisation", and in Gaza, Fawzi Barhoum, a spokesman for the armed Islamist group Hamas, told Reuters: “Normalisation is a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause, and it serves only the Israeli occupation.”

The deal provides a diplomatic achievement for Mr Netanyahu after weeks of domestic criticism over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the economy, but also angered right-wing Israeli settlers who want to annex the West Bank.

Mr Netanyahu said that while he had promised to apply Israeli sovereignty to areas, including Jewish settlements, in the territory, which Palestinians seek for a future state, he had made clear he first needed a green light from Washington.

"He deceived us. He has deceived half a million residents of the area and hundreds of thousands of voters," said David Elhayani, head of the Yesha Council of settlers. 



From Cumnock Chronicle:

Trump hails ‘historic moment’ as Israel and UAE agree diplomacy deal

US President Donald Trump has said the United Arab Emirates and Israel will establish diplomatic ties in a deal halting planned annexation of occupied land sought by the Palestinians for their future state.

The announcement makes the UAE the first Gulf Arab state to do so and only the third Arab nation to have active diplomatic ties to Israel.

  1. Your irrational hatred of Israel leads you to tar UAE as an American "acolyte" just because they have assessed that it is in their nation's interest to have normal diplomatic ties with Israeli.

  2. What is wrong with you brainwashed / brain dead guys ?

    An Arab Muslim country decides it is better to engage Israel as a normal country than to perpetuate the eternal non-communication and forever enmity.

    And you guys knee jerk condemn them as some lackey ?

    1. you don't make friends with someone who keeps stealing/annexing Arab land or keeps killing Arab children

    2. Jews and Arabs share common ancestry, can be traced genetically. So they are not stealing Arab land. It is their land too.

    3. Menteri Pak Unta sure object, bang parliament table today.....does not support two state solution...wants Israel wiped out....cut ties with UAE....mau jadi Pejuang macam Toonsie....ha ha ha....

  3. Countries that have diplomatic relations can and do have disagreements and arguments , sometimes vehement and loud disputes.
    What changes is that the countries deal and engage with each other recognising each side as sovereign states.

  4. Smart move by Minion King Darveed, he only had a pebble in his slingshot and a crazy Orange-haired supporter far far away (ha ha ha...not my words...) who is about to be dethroned come November, to fight against the height and might of the Philistine Goliath, with all its resources, money O&G, 2 billion souls, Allah etc. How can Darveed ever win...?

    Allah already forgave Darveed for his sins, why KT cannot accept....?


    Why Was David a Good King?

    1. David showed mercy. After David became a king, the former king’s relatives were scared that David would take revenge on them. But David showed mercy to his predecessor’s family mercy. In fact, he sought Mephibosheth, a surviving member of Saul’s family, gave him his family land and welcomed him at his own dinner table.
    Read the whole story: 2 Samuel 9

    2. David admitted when he was wrong. David made mistakes. Big ones. After he had an affair with Bathsheba, the wife of one of his army officers, he had her husband killed in battle. But when the prophet Nathan confronted David with his error, David admitted, “I have sinned against the Lord.”
    Read the whole story: 2 Samuel 12

    3. David recognized wise people. While David was wandering in the desert with his band of followers, he had a run in with a man named Nabal. The only thing that prevented a conflict between David and Nabal was Nabal’s wife Abigail. David recognized what a wise woman Abigail was and married her after Nabal died.
    Read the whole story: 1 Samuel 25

    4. David trusted God. Although David wasn’t perfect, he sought God throughout his life. He faced many obstacles that required him to place his faith in God, because the situation at hand looked bleak. The most famous of these encounters was the fight with Goliath, when David famously declared, "The Lord has saved me from lions and bears; he will save me from this Philistine.” And against all human odds, David defeated Goliath and began his long career serving his people and his God.
    Read the whole story: 1 Samuel 17

    1. The Bible was written by David's descendants so what did you expect them to write about David?

    2. Like Arul Kanda "checked and revised" the 1MDB audit report under instruction by PMO so what to expect? I get it....ha ha ha.....

  5. A piece of toilet paper that worths NOTHING!

    The regional blood feud skullduggery will continuous. The outside Machiavellian plays for geopolitical interests will continue. The bleeding hearted reminders for the WWII atrocities done on the Jews will be manipulated by the Zionists to seek supports from the Christian West.

    Meanwhile, trump gains a piece of goodwill in forging superficial peace move for his reelection.

    The ONLY way to stop the irrational bloodlettings in Middle East is for all outsiders, East & West, to strictly forbid to intervent in any eventualities within these houses of monotheistic doctrines!

    Mfing military HW merchants should be punished financial kaux2 if they ever DARE selling a single tank screw to any parties within that cursed land!

    Let them fight themselves silly & learnt. Initially, the Zionists would win but the sheer numerical advantageous of the Mohammedans would reverse the tide of winning. Eventually both sides would worn out physically, mentally & financially.

    Only then the ordinary Jews & Arabs who will come to their common understanding - NOT to be used by politikuses of their regions, to inflame religion & racial differences amongst them.

    These ordinary decedents of those ancient Semitic tribes will come to their sense - live & let live. Whatever one-upmanship initiated by religions, race or farts, bear no effect on their coexistence in a land that their ancestral tribes shared & populated in peace & harmony.
