One of the striking aspects of this development is the lack of protests in the Arab world. Palestinians condemned the agreement, but public protests were stifled in the West Bank and virtually non-existent elsewhere. The Arab League rejected the Palestinian authrority`s request to hold an emergency meeting to discuss the agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel. Only Iran and Turkey opposed the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and they themselves did not do so for the good of the Palestinians, said Professor Eyal Zisser, “but because they see that the agreement violates their own status in the region. According to Al-Jazeera, other leaders and groups, including the Islamic Jihad movement in Palestine, unanimously rejected the agreement. Mustafa Barghouti, head of the Palestinian National Initiative, said they were not surprised by the recent actions taken by the United Arab Emirates and the fact that the Emiratis had never attempted to fight Israel. He added that this could encourage other nations to ignore the Palestinian issue. The head of the Palestine Liberation Front, Wasel Abu Yousef, said the agreement would only give Israel greater influence over its occupation. ANP Social Affairs Minister Ahmed Majdalani said they did not know the agreement in advance and that the UAE was bartering the others, while unilaterally changing the Arab world`s approach to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  Ordinary Palestinians have turned to social media to protest the agreement, and some have also insulted the Vae.
Meanwhile, Abbas Zaki, a member of Fatah`s Central Committee, called the agreement a breakdown of the Arab consensus on the management of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He accused the United Arab Emirates of betraying Arabs and Palestinians before asking the ANP to withdraw its ambassador from the United Arab Emirates and also called on the Arab League to cancel the 2002 Arab peace initiative.  Since last summer, the governments of the UAE and Iran have been in contact. By the agreement of August 13, has MBZ changed its approach to its dangerous neighbour? Or are the Emiratis simply calculating that Iranians cannot afford to take reckless risks before the US elections? Do they feel they have the opportunity to strengthen relations with Israel as they did a year ago, given the many regional bargains that are coming? A4: Contrary to some comments, these agreements are more important to the Arab world than to Israel. Israelis can derive some degree of emotional security from the fact that they feel less isolated in the region and they could benefit from some marginal advantages that they would not otherwise have been able to obtain in their struggle with Iran. But it will radically change the way Arab states deal with each other and their problems. In many ways, this is a declaration of independence from the Arab world, which it apparently has not concluded to meet one of the challenges they face and lead them into struggles they cannot win. The Emiratis believe that they have the strength and confidence to treat every country in the world bilaterally without 20 other countries supporting them. Just weeks after the announcement of the establishment of relations, the United Arab Emirates had already incorporated a lesson on the agreement into one of the textbooks in class 1-12. The chapter on the agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel says that the “historic” agreement comes from the values of our true Islamic religion, which insist on creating and building bridges of cooperation. For the United Arab Emirates, the agreement is indeed a generous donation to Trump`s campaign, while abu Dhabi has more access to weapons and intelligence at the same time. A simple criticism of the Israeli media will show how enthusiastic security companies are about the deal.
Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a senior adviser to President Mahmoud Abbas, read an official statement in which Palestinian leaders rejected the agreement and called it treason against Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians.  The Palestinian Authority (PNA) recalled its ambassador from Abu Dhabi.   Palestinian Guide
