So it never was then a ‘peace agreement’ between Israel and the UAE. It was ‘normalisation’ for mounting a military alliance against Iran.
If there is any real deal here, it is in reality, based on arms procurement and sharing technology, which is all about taking on Iran.
The normalization of relations between the UAE and Israel, facilitated by the U.S., serves to prop up three repressive leaders — Trump, Netanyahu, and bin Zayed — and will cause further harm to Palestinians. It is both a shame and a sham.
Among the most brutal realities for Palestinians is loss of support from Arab states, who pay lip service to their own populations, while drawing closer to Israel with economic interests and Iran in mind, write Medea Benjamin and Ariel Gold.
