It is therefore, in one way or another, part of the category of an open secret, which is strangely a metaphor for the closer relations between the Gulf countries and Israel. Everyone knows this is happening. You don`t really see it outdoors. Like Luria, other Democrats present, such as New York Rep. Anthony Brindisi, are newcomers to tough re-election races. Still others, like The Florida Reps. Ted Deutch and Stephanie Murphy come from districts with a large number of Jewish voters. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called the agreement a betrayal of Islam, Arabism, Jerusalem and the Palestinians. He accused the United Arab Emirates of doing Trump a favor in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election. [90] Lebanese President Michel Aoun, whose Free Patriotic Movement party is an ally of Hezbollah, said lebanon would be open to peace with Israel if their reciprocal problems were resolved and if the UAE had the right to normalize relations with Israel because they are a sovereign nation. [91] But Prime Minister Netanyahu seemed to have withdrawn from the idea, at least for the time being, because of overwhelming international pressure.

The Emiratis have allowed him to break a difficult political stalemate. Thus Netanyahu, as he has done repeatedly in public and in private, finds himself in a rather familiar defamation of Iranian faults, Iranian misdeeds and how Israel and the Gulf States must ally themselves against this Iranian threat. Otaiba nods. He agrees with everything Netanyahu says. And that`s how you get the superficial impression of being a fairly harmless conversation. The agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates promises to establish normal relations between the two countries. These include trade relations, tourism, direct flights, scientific cooperation and, in due course, full diplomatic relations at the ambassadorial level. However, it is unlikely that the Emiratis will set up their embassy in Jerusalem. An important element of the Abraham agreement, although not explicitly formulated, is the strengthening of security cooperation against regional threats, particularly from Iran and its deputies. It is important to note that Israel and the United Arab Emirates report that they already have security relations, but the agreement puts them in power. Among the Gulf countries, Bahrain is the most likely to follow the Vae. King Hamad oversaw the normalization process, including the authorization of Israeli officials to attend a regional security meeting in the country.

In addition, the Israeli Foreign Minister met with his Bahraini counterpart and the official`s predecessor. Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a senior adviser to President Mahmoud Abbas, read an official statement in which Palestinian leaders rejected the agreement and called it treason against Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians. [63] The Palestinian Authority (PNA) recalled its ambassador from Abu Dhabi. [64] [65] Palestinian leaders also said that Hamas leader called Ismail Haniyeh Abbas and rejected the agreement, which Reuters called a « rare manifestation of unity. » [66] Jared Kushner, Trump`s son-in-law, launches his first round in Bahrain. It takes an « economy first » approach and calls for a $50 billion investment fund to stimulate the Palestinian and neighbouring Arab economy. Palestinian leaders refuse to do so. The UAE Foreign Ministry summoned the Iranian Minister of Foreign Affairs on 16 August and criticized Rohani`s speech as « unacceptable and incendiary », which could have an impact on the security scenario in the Gulf.
