Uae Peace Agreement With Israel

Canadian Foreign Minister François-Philippe Champagne hailed the agreement as a historic and positive step towards a peaceful and secure Middle East, adding that Canada welcomed the suspension of annexation plans. [133] Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne said the agreement was important and that the suspension of the annexation was important. [134] It is for all these reasons that I say no to this agreement, as well as anyone who deals with justice. Peace, security, equality and respect for the long-awaited rights of the Palestinian people: this agreement is exactly the opposite. Moroccan Prime Minister Saadeddine Othmani said the country opposed any normalization of relations with Israel, which would only encourage its repression against the Palestinians. [102] On 20 September, hundreds of people protested against the Peace Agreement of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain with Israel and burned an Israeli flag. Protesters called both countries “traitors,” while criticizing the United States and “Zionist allies.” They also called for any normalization with Israel to be criminalized. [103] But it is above all the fear of a U.S. withdrawal from the region that brings the Arab states closer to Israel. They saw U.S. President Donald Trump refrain from any direct military response to Iran`s devastating attack on Saudi Arabia`s oil facilities in September 2019. Moreover, Trump did not even react to the downing of a sophisticated U.S. surveillance drone over the Strait of Hormus by Iran a few months earlier.

However, education and peace education are not among these areas. Although Gulf governments have no borders with Israel and have never confronted Israel militarily, the full normalization of non-governmental relations between countries remains a major challenge. Many Arabs have deeply entrenched anti-Semitic, anti-Israeli and anti-Zionist views. Holocaust denial is still widespread in the public opinion of Arab countries. The result was a largely oblique response from the Palestinian authorities and other civilians. Even among the more moderate Palestinian politicians, no one has dared to openly declare their support for the agreement. On social media, Palestinians were afraid to openly express their views on support for the agreement, so that they would not be called “collaborators,” “traitors” or “defiatists.” Therefore, only Palestinians who condemned the standardization agreement took to social media to express their denunciation of the agreement; Some use derogatory terms to describe the conduct of the United Arab Emirates. In the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, the photo of Mohammed bin Zayed Al-Nahyan was blocked and protesters marched on an Emirran flag.

Habtoor Hospitality was the first group of Emirati hotels to start choosing kosher dishes as part of its menu and collaborated with Elli`s Kosher Kitchen. [150] The Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism issued a note to Abu Dhabi hotels recommending that kosher food be served on menus and outlets. The Orthodox Union has been chosen to certify kosher food. [151] Emirates` Emirates Flight Catering service emirates announced on 17 September that it had set up a kosher food production centre called Kosher Arabia in collaboration with CCL Holdings. [152] The UAE`s first kosher restaurant, called Armani/Kaf, opened on September 17 at the Armani Hotel in Dubai, La Burj Khalifa. [153] Recognizing the importance of a supportive legal framework for the movement of people and goods and the promotion of an ongoing business-friendly environment, the parties strive to provide each other with the greatest possible legal cooperation, in accordance with their national legislation, including mutual legal assistance in civil and commercial matters.
