The UAE, One Step Beyond Insecurity
In recent days, the region has been witnessing some tumultuous news that U.S. President Donald Trump has stirred regarding the normalization of the ties between the UAE and Zionist regime and it has paved the ground for flood of opinions pros and cons on the normalization of ties between the both states.

The Zionist regime by this agreement which will lead to contracts in different trade, economic, political, cultural and, in a future not too far, in the military and intelligence fields in a region that the UAE will not only expand the process of insecurity for itself but also for its allies backing this idea.
According to Palestinian news agency Shahab, Zionist media outlets have reported that some Arab countries in the Persian littoral states have openly revealed their secret intelligence, commercial and political ties with Israel. These media outlets have announced that they can refer to the recent interview of Israeli Minister of Intelligence Eli Cohen and an article by the UAE Ambassador to Washington Yousef Al-Otaiba published in the Saudi Arabian online newspaper “Elaph” as the proofs for their claims.
Regarding this issue and Al-Otaiba’s interview with Elaph, Israeli Channel 13’s reporter on Arab states affairs Hezi Simantov said that the interview actually showed that some Arab countries especially the Arab Persian Gulf littoral states continue their efforts to normalize ties with Israel.
The UAE’s officials through tweeting have asked for getting some concessions for Palestine as the base for developing their ties with Zionist regime because they believe as a result of this diplomatic breakthrough and at the request of President Trump with the support of the United Arab Emirates, Israel will suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.
The joint statement between the UAE and Israel which has made official their ties says, “Delegations from Israel and the United Arab Emirates will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements regarding investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, healthcare, culture, the environment, the establishment of reciprocal embassies, and other areas of mutual benefit. The United Arab Emirates and Israel will immediately expand and accelerate cooperation regarding the treatment of and the development of a vaccine for the coronavirus. Working together, these efforts will help save Muslim, Jewish, and Christian lives throughout the region.”
Advisor to the UAE government Anwar Gargash also enumerates reasons for overt compromise of his country with the Zionist occupier regime that none of the Palestinian groups do see these reason acceptable. On the other hand, some Zionist analysts believe that making public the relations between Israel and Arab states which had no relation with Tel Aviv shows that the trend for normalization with Tel Aviv is progressing with extreme pace. According to these experts, this issue indicates that most of Arab leaders will not feel any obstacle for presence in the Israeli media any longer. Of course regarding this point I should mention that there are still some countries in the Persian Gulf littoral states which believe that these relations will make the condition more complicated for managing the tension in the region.
According to these experts, Al-Otaib’s article which was published in the Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth has reflected only the extent of development of relations between Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi and other countries have not shown any desire towards this alliance.
Israel’s Channel 13 has emphatically reiterated that the UAE ambassador has submitted his article to the White House before it being published in the daily and his article is of great significance due to different reasons like there is no overt relation between Israel and the UAE for now.
The other Zionist newspaper Haaretz also wrote, “Kuwait is the only Arab Persian Gulf country which is still opposing the normalization of ties.” The daily has termed the opposition to normalization of ties in the Persian Gulf as a very dangerous conspiracy act and has announced, “Opposition to normalization in the Persian Gulf states is gradually causing concerns among the governments in this region.”
What is fully clear is that the Islamic Republic of Iran considers allies with the Zionist regime as its enemies and will have the opposite reaction or action regarding this issue. With normalizing ties with Israel, Abu Dhabi government has registered in its name one step beyond the insecurity in the region and is putting its economic and tourist relations in danger of threats resulted from tensions in the Persian Gulf.
This move bears no spring of boom, not only for the UAE but also for other countries in the Persian Gulf, and Mr. Trump has showed that in the critical and tough condition will not meddle in the Persian Gulf states’ affairs in the critical times and conditions.
