Palestinians Decry Israeli Normalization Deals with UAE and Bahrain

US tries to pass Mideast peace plan through Israeli normalization with Arabs: Palestinian FM

Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammed Ishtayeh has said the government will present a recommendation to President Mahmoud Abbas to reconsider relations with the Arab League.

Bahrain on Friday agreed to normalize relations with Israel, becoming the latest Arab nation to do so as part of a broader diplomatic push by US President Donald Trump and his administration to further ease the regime's relative isolation in the Middle East.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in Washington, D.C., today ahead of Tuesday's White House ceremony, where he will sign the US -brokered normalization deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Stipulating the full normalisation of relations between UAE-Israel, the Abraham Accord will make the UAE the third Arab state ever to recognize Israel, following Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994).


"This day will be added to the Palestinian calendar of pain and Arab calendar of defeats, as it deals the death blow to the Arab Peace Initiative and Arab solidarity", he added as he urged the Arabs to stand united in the face of the agreements.

Bahrain's interior minister said on Monday that normalising ties with Israel protects Bahrain's interests and strengthens its strategic partnership with the United States, amid an ongoing threat from Iran.

The agreement was "a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people", like the UAE-Israel deal announced last month, Ahmad Majdalani, social affairs minister in the occupied West Bank-based PA, told the AFP news agency at the time.

Bahrain has now become the fourth Arab country to recognize Israel.
