Trump to preside over historic Arab-Israel recognition deals

Last week an Arab League ministerial meeting failed to adopt a Palestinian draft condemning the UAE-Israel normalisation agreement

In Gaza, which is controlled by the Islamist militant group Hamas, dozens of Palestinians rallied outside a United Nations office to condemn the normalization deals shortly before the signing ceremony began. "We're here this afternoon to change the course of history".

PA President Mahmoud Abbas said that only Israel's withdrawal from occupied territories can bring peace to the Middle East.

"The ultimate piece is it's good for us to have, and it's good for Israel", he said.

There are no active wars to be ended by the agreements, but Israel and the US hope they could usher in a major shift in the region should other Arab nations, particularly Saudi Arabia, follow suit.

"Efforts to bypass the Palestinian people and their leadership will have unsafe consequences", Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said in a statement. Gen. Tamir Yadai, prior to the briefing, says he did not expect that there would be a large-scale outbreak of violence by Palestinians in response to the normalization agreements with the UAE and Bahrain.

Netanyahu called the day a "pivot of history". Neither country sent its head of state or government to sign the deals with Netanyahu. There were at least two small demonstrations in northern areas of Bahrain, where protesters chanted anti-Israel slogans and stepped on Israeli flags amid a heavy police presence. Iran later also slammed Bahrain's "shameful" move.

Kushner also said President Trump doesn't chase deals, but rather makes deals when they are ready.

Mr Trump enjoyed the optics of presiding over a historic breakthrough less than 50 days before election day, which opinion polls suggest he is now on course to lose.

Although a diplomatic win for Netanyahu, the ceremony takes place while he faces criticism at home of his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and a corruption trial on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust that have led to frequent street protests.

The historic step in Arab-Israeli relations was orchestrated by the Trump administration, which dangled USA arms sales as an incentive for the UAE. He told Fox News Channel on Tuesday morning more such pacts involving Israel are likely ahead.

After gathering at Black Lives Matter Plaza - a street renamed during the aftermath of the George Floyd killing and subsequent protests - the protesters marched on the streets just outside the White House, carrying with them a huge Palestinian flag that stretched over an entire street block.

Trump said he is OK with selling military aircraft to the U.A.E. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also welcomed the agreements but said she wants to learn details, specifically what the Trump administration has told the U.A.E. about buying American-made F-35 aircraft and about Israel agreeing to freeze efforts to annex portions of the West Bank.

"Arab Gulf States and Israel have more in common in terms of their opposition to Iran than they have in opposition in relation to the fact that their views on Palestinian aspirations are stated", Todman said.
