The Israeli embassy in Dubai published a picture bearing the flag of Israel and the UAE in the form of a “normalization” emoji, which sparked a wave of widespread anger.
This comes in light of the continuation of the Emirati-Israeli normalization process, which recently witnessed the opening of two embassies in the Emirates and Israel, as a culmination of the normalization agreement between the two countries.
According to the tweet, which was monitored by Watan, the image that carried the flags of the Emirates and Israel was tied with intertwined palms, in reference to the depth of cooperation between the two sides.
I attached the aforementioned photo with a comment that read, “On the occasion of World Emoji Day, we chose our favorite emoji, what is your favorite emoji?”

Why do you put the flag of the Zionist entity 🇮🇱 greater than the flag of the Hamarite entity 🇦🇪
And whoever insults God, he has no honor.

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 relations 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.
