Normalisation with Israel and the Palestinian response

11 7 2

There has been a breach in the Arab Front in favour of Israel against Palestine. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has caused a wide rift in the Gulf for the benefit of Israel, through signing the so-called Peace Treaty between two parties that are not even at war. They used specific details in the title of the treaty calling it “peace in exchange for peace” and “peace in exchange for economy”, thus issuing excuses that are unacceptable and can never be convincing under any pretexts.

At the Madrid Conference in 1991, headed by the US and the Soviet Union at the time, the “Land for Peace” slogan was used, stipulating the withdrawal of Israel to the 5 June 1967 borders, among other things. Yitzhak Shamir, the prime minister of Israel at the time, made a fundamental change to the slogan of the proposed conference, calling it “Peace for Peace”, meaning that Arabs and Palestinians must surrender to the Zionist plans in the Middle East, and not just in Palestine.

In other words, after 29 years the UAE, under the leadership of Mohammed Bin Zayed, adopted the Likud project “Peace for Peace”, which Shamir called for in Madrid in 1991.

Despite King of Bahrain Hamad Bin Isa’s well-known relations with the Zionist lobby in the US, and with the Israeli leadership, of which all experts in Arab-Israeli affairs are aware since the early 1990s, he was unable to speak of those relations in public, despite leaking information about them here and there.
