Uae Agreement With Israel
Other leaders and factions, including the Islamic Jihadist Movement in Palestine, unanimously rejected the deal, according to Al Jazeera. The head of the Palestinian National Initiative, Mustafa Barghouti, said they were not surprised by the recent steps taken by the UAE and the fact that the UAE has never tried to fight Israel. He added that this could encourage other nations to ignore the Palestinian issue. Palestine Liberation Front leader Wasel Abu Yousef said the deal only gave Israel more influence over its occupation. ANP Social Affairs Minister Ahmed Majdalani said they are not aware of the deal in advance and that the UAE is deceiving others while unilaterally changing the Arab world`s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  Among the Gulf countries, Bahrain is most likely to follow the United Arab Emirates.
