Recent agreements to establish diplomatic and trade relations between Israel and three Arab states mark a historic shift in relations between former opponents. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called the agreement a betrayal of Islam, Arabism, Jerusalem and the Palestinians. He accused the United Arab Emirates of doing Trump a favor in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election.  Lebanese President Michel Aoun, whose Free Patriotic Movement party is an ally of Hezbollah, said lebanon would be open to peace with Israel if their reciprocal problems were resolved and if the UAE had the right to normalize relations with Israel because they are a sovereign nation.  Joe Biden, Trump`s opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, praised the agreement, building on “the efforts of several governments to promote greater Arab-Israeli openness, including the Obama-Biden administration`s efforts to build on the Arab peace initiative.”  An agreement gave considerable impetus when, on 1 July, Israel did not begin the process of annexation of the West Bank, as Mr. Netanyahu had suggested. The Emiratis reported that they took the opportunity to promise a complete normalization of relations if the annexation was removed from the table. It was the subtext of an op-ed published in June by the Emirati ambassador to the United States in Israel`s largest daily newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth. The Donald J.
Trump government, which resigned itself to Israel`s strong desire to expand the country`s formal diplomatic relations with the Arab nations of the Persian Gulf and took over the UAE embassy in the Persian Gulf, oversaw the three-way diplomacy that led to the Abraham Agreement. A spokeswoman for the European Commission said the agreement was important to both Israel and the United Arab Emirates, as well as ensuring their stability. Meanwhile, Italy hoped that peace and stability would take place in the Middle East. He also said that Israel`s suspension of the annexation of part of the West Bank was positive and hoped that Israel would resume talks with the Palestinians for a two-state solution.  Spain expressed itself in the same way and welcomed the agreement.  Washington is far from Iran, but the VaE is just above the Persian Gulf. On the other hand, Tehran is looking for ways to return to the negotiating table, but with millennia of history and culture, Iran can afford to be patient, and the current milestone they are waiting for appears to be the U.S. presidential election. Thus, Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain took a step that Iran did not expect, which clearly limited its decisions.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres hailed “any initiative that could promote peace and security in the Middle East region.”  Guterres spokesman Stephane Dujarric welcomed the agreement and said he was suspending “Israeli annexation plans for parts of the occupied West Bank” that Mr. Guterres had repeatedly called for and said that “peace in the Middle East is more important than ever.”  However, the widow of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, Suha Arafat, apologized on Instagram to the United Arab Emirates for the Palestinian reaction to the agreement and said she regretted that the flag of the United Arab Emirates had been damaged by protesters in the West Bank and that photos of Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan had been burned in the United Arab Emirates. , adding that these are not the values of the Palestinian people.
