Israel and the Emirates: The historical Dimension, a pragmatic cooperation

In their own way the Parties have sought the agreement from Thursday to classify it. The crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Muhammad Bin Zayed, remained comparatively sober and focused on the topic that is of concern to many Arabs: the United Arab Emirates and Israel now want to establish diplomatic relations means that the idea of a Two-state solution in the Israeli-held Palestinian conflict, he said. The "further Israeli annexation of Palestinian territory" will be stopped.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the agreement identified the location has more of a historical Dimension: He spoke of a "new Era in relations between Israel and the Arab world" and said there would be "more Arab and Muslim States to join the circle of Peace with us." He had "the great honor to close the third, the peace agreement of Israel with an Arab country". Almost by the way, Netanyahu dismissed the Statement by crown Prince Muhammad: The Plan to Annex parts of the West Bank, not from the table, he said in a press conference. You have deferred the plans only at the request of the American President. This is actually also so in the agreement, which had been released by Donald Trump hours before, surprisingly, on Twitter.

No comparison is too high for Trump

The President but not to announce the breakthrough, in person at the White house. There is no comparison, seemed to be on the high side: As the name sponsor for the agreement, Abraham will serve in Islam as the Ibrahim – known because he, for the connection of the monotheistic religions of the world. After all, it was a "truly historic Moment," said Trump, who had declared then that negotiations had recently taken place in such a good atmosphere that it felt "like being in love".

In a telephone conference had taken place, apparently quite emotional negotiations. A signing ceremony for the "Abraham-agreement" in the White house is planned according to American data, but also – ultimately, choice is in America the fight. Donald trump's security Advisor Robert O'brien said that Netanyahu and Mohammed Bin Zayed "or some other Prince" – and probably soon to Washington would be traveling.

A joint appearance with the Israeli government leaders and the strong man to the Emirates would be the culmination of a years-long, gradual rapprochement of the two countries. The establishment of full diplomatic relations and a peace Treaty would be a milestone in the history of the Middle East – especially since this might actually "break the ice", as Trump said in the White house, and other Arab countries might follow the United Arab Emirates. Now about Bahrain is called or Oman. The Sultanate had visited in the South of the Arabian Peninsula, the Netanyahu and the end of 2018, said the objective of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Israel and the UAE on Friday as a step towards a "permanent peace" in the Region.

In the Israeli press Abu Dhabi campaigned for an approach

for a Long time the Arab world had stood firmly together in their opposition of Israel, which had been founded in 1948 against the will and against the attacks of the Arabs in the historic Palestine. In the Khartoum Resolution of 1. In September 1967, shortly after the Arab defeat in the six day war, formulated the Arab League, the famous "three no's": no to peace with Israel, no to recognition of Israel, no to negotiations with Israel.

the First cracks showed the rejection front, ten years later, when the Egyptian President Anwar al Sadat peace gestures made in the direction of Israel. This led in 1979 to a of an American President, Jimmy Carter-brokered peace Treaty. The approach brought Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin the Nobel peace prize – but otherwise, no luck: was ruled Egypt for ten years, from the Arab League and Sadat in 1981, murdered by a Islamists. One reason for the anger of the Arab community in Egypt was that Egypt's interests, especially on the Sinai back. The case of the Palestinians, so it was interpreted everywhere, have betrayed Cairo.
