The United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel are normalizing relations. This after the intervention of US President Donald Trump and his adviser Jared Kushner.
The deal made has one condition: the no further annexation of land. This compromise was only made so that the UAE can sell it in the home country and Arab world. the non-annexation will not change the administrative status of Judea and Samaria (West Bank).
This deal, according to many, is a simple pact against Iran. Ben Shapiro, among others, says this:
“The UAE wanted to normalize relations with Israel, but they had to get something in return so that it seemed like they care about the Palestinian Authority, which they actually don't. Then Israel said okay, we will not formally annex all of these areas, which we know will be in Israeli hands in a future deal. And the UAE was like: good, done. ”
Shapiro continues: "What the deal is in reality is a joint defense alliance against Iran."
During President Barack Obama's administration, Iran was hailed as an emerging regional power. Countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Israel then stood together as a unit against Iran. Said saw the disastrous consequences a powerful Iran could have on the Middle East.
Normalization has been in use for some time
After a telephone conversation between the leaders of Israel, the US and the UAE, President Trump said during an unexpected announcement:
“This is truly a historic moment. Not so much progress towards peace in the Middle East has been made since the Israel-Jordan peace agreement thirty years ago. By bringing together two of America's best and most capable partners in the region. Something that was said to be impossible. This deal is a big step in building a more peaceful, safe and prosperous Middle East. ” - President Donald Trump (USA)
This makes the Emirates the third country to maintain normal diplomatic relations with Israel. Following in the footsteps of Egypt, which made peace in 1979 and Jordan, which made peace in 1994.
It also looks like Oman and Bahrain will follow suit and normalize. According to Ben Shapiro, this means that “Saudi Arabia cannot be far behind” and will therefore normalize. But this is not yet certain.
In 1979, Prime Minister Menachem Begin made peace with Egypt. In 1994, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin signed a peace treaty with Jordan. And today, I am honored to announce a formal peace agreement with the United Arab Emirates.

The Israeli Prime Minister is happy with the developments in the Middle East. More and more countries are recognizing that it is better to make peace with Israel than to see them as enemies.
Iran's foreign minister called the deal a "dagger stuck in the backs of the Palestinians and all Muslims." Iran is not talking about the thousands of Muslims in Syria being murdered with Iranian help. Or Iranian-backed Hezbollah, which has plagued Lebanon for a long time.
The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs says the following:
"The UAE had no right to negotiate this agreement for the Palestinians."
Implying the deal was made on behalf of the Palestinians. However, this is incorrect, the deal was made on behalf of the UAE government, not Palestinians.
Biden takes the credit
Presidential candidate Joe Biden (D) is now trying to claim the credit, claiming this deal was made based on the 'Arab Peace Initiative'. Joe Biden says the following in a statement:
“I personally spent time with Israeli and Emirates leaders during the Obama administration, explaining the need for cooperation, broad engagement and the benefits for both countries. I am delighted with this announcement. ”
To start with the Arab Peace Initiative, it demanded the following:
- Israel's complete withdrawal from the Golan Heights;
- Complete withdrawal from Judea and Samaria; and
- Withdrawal from East Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and the Western Wall (important Jewish sites);
According to Biden, work was carried out on the basis of this initiative, but no demand has been met. Israel is more active in it Judea and Samaria.
The reason for this deal is because of the Obama administration. But not because of Obama-Biden's great initiatives. However, it was because of Obama's Iran policy. While Obama has continued to fill Iranian leaders, and especially since the 2015 nuclear deal (JCPOA).
This deal has driven the Gulf states into Israel's arms because only together can they ensure that Iran cannot become a dominant power in the Middle East.
Only Obama's mismanagement can tie this deal to Biden, but in this negative way the Biden-Harris campaign is not trying to put it down.
According to various political commentators and the National Security Adviser, President Trump should be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize because of this deal.
It was already suggested in 2018 that Trump should be awarded the Nobel Prize for progression with North Korea, but this progression now seems to have evaporated. Kim Jong-un's regime has taken a tougher tone towards the United States recently.
“It's really remarkable, I think, when you step back and look at what this president has done for peace. I wouldn't be surprised, although it will take some time at this point, if the president is eventually nominated for a Nobel Prize. Today's work is an example of why he is rightly considered and should be a front runner for the Nobel Peace Prize. ” - Robert O'Brien, National Security Advisor
Many conservative commentators then look to Barack Obama, who won the Nobel Prize "by existing." Obama won the Nobel Prize a few months after he was elected president of the United States, before making any major strides in security, or international diplomacy.
A view to the elections
This deal comes close to President Trump's campaign. It's a big win in foreign policy that Trump could outweigh his predecessors, including Obama.
Although there is also good news for Trump.
A third of the 'black voters' have become less enthusiastic about Joe Biden.
