UAE Embassy in Tel Aviv

The videos that were circulated for the opening of the Emirati embassy in Tel Aviv, caused a sensation on social media platforms.

Watan monitored many angry comments about the Emirati behavior after the rulers of the Emirates normalized their relations with Israel.

Commenting on the opening of the Emirati embassy in Israel, the singer Bukhalid al-Kusabi said (Abu Hurayrah hadith: The Prophet, peace be upon him, said: A man is on the religion of his friend, so let one of you look who he is friendly with)

He added, “The hadith of our Noble Messenger shows us the relationship and affection between the children of Zayed and Israel, and their end will be, God willing, hell and the final fate.”

The Palestinian activist, Mona Hawa, commented on the playing of the UAE national anthem at the opening ceremony of the UAE embassy in the occupation, saying: “A country that has no justice for its Prime Time Zone wants it to be just with us?”

Activists circulated pictures of the ceremony in which the UAE opened its embassy in Tel Aviv.

Israel in Abu Dhabi

Earlier, Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid had inaugurated his country’s embassy in the UAE, as well as a consulate in Dubai, and signed a bilateral agreement on economic cooperation, at a moment described by the Israeli Foreign Ministry as “historic.”

Lapid said during the opening ceremony of the temporary headquarters of the Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi: “Israel wants peace with its neighbors, with all its neighbors, we are not going anywhere. The Middle East is our home.”

He added, “We are staying here. We call on all countries in the region to recognize this.”

This was the first visit by an Israeli minister to the UAE since the two countries established ties last year.

Trade between Israel and Tel Aviv

At the time, Lapid confirmed that the volume of trade between Israel and the UAE in the ten months since the normalization of relations between them exceeded $675 million, expecting more agreements to be concluded.

While the UAE said that the agreements, which represent a challenge to the prevailing position for decades on the Palestinian issue as one of the main factors driving Arab politics, will ultimately benefit the Palestinians, according to it.

Normalization with Israel

Since the normalization of relations between the UAE and Israel, in September 2020, prompted by the administration of former US President Donald Trump, the two countries have established direct flights, exchanged ambassadors, and visited several trade delegations.

In addition to the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco joined the list of Arab countries that normalized with Israel last year, under agreements brokered by former US President Donald Trump.

The Palestinians denounced the normalization agreements signed by several Arab countries with Israel and considered them a “treason,” as finding a solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict has so far been the condition for any normalization.
