UAE, Bahrain Sign Shameful US-brokered Normalization Deals with ‘Israel’
By Staff, Agencies
The United Arab Emirates [UAE] and Bahraini regimes signed shameful normalization agreements with the ‘Israeli’ occupation regime at the White House amid outrage across Palestine and elsewhere throughout the Muslim world at the Arab regimes’ sheer betrayal of the Palestinian cause.
The deals were signed between Emirati and Bahraini Foreign Ministers, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan and Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, and Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. US President Donald Trump also penned his signature into the accords.
With the US-brokered deals, the UAE and Bahraini regimes have become only the third and fourth Arab states to ever normalize their relations with the Zionist occupation entity after Egypt and Jordan.
At the White House, US President Donald Trump claimed “five or six” more Arab countries were poised to agree to normalize relations with ‘Israel.’
"We’re very far down the road with about five countries, five additional countries,” Trump said as he hosted Netanyahu, bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and bin Rashid Al Zayani.
With Trump facing a tough re-election on November 3, the back-to-back agreements could help bolster his electoral appeal to pro-‘Israel’ Christian evangelical voters in the US, an important chunk of his political base.
Taking the podium after Trump, Netanyahu thanked the US president for “unequivocally” standing by his occupation entity’s side since taking office.
Trump and Netanyahu called the deals ‘historic’, with the former alleging that they "mark the dawn of a new Middle East."
The White House ceremony also helps distract from Netanyahu’s domestic grievances — the worst economic downturn in 45 years, a coronavirus crisis that has prompted the second general lockdown, and his own trial on corruption charges.
