Trump Signs Historic Abraham Accords For 'Peace In The Middle East'

Palestine- Israel

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has praised the deals - and Mr Trump - highly.

Hundreds of people were invited to attend and a symbolic handshake between the Arab representatives and Netanyahu has not been ruled out.

"After decades of division and conflict we mark the dawn of a new Middle East", Mr Trump said.

He said the agreements "will serve as the foundation for a comprehensive peace across the entire region" and "there will be other countries, very, very soon".

"These countries that are working to normalise with Israel are in fact harming the Palestinians more by signing these deals and coming out, and stating clearly, what their intentions are".

UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan said the agreements marked "a change in the heart of the Middle East".

One target of White House appeals is Saudi Arabia, the biggest Gulf Arab power.

"We're here to change the course of history", Trump said.

"The Middle East is the heartland of Jewish history, the home to our prophets, historical and holy sites", he said. In our faith, we say, Oh God, you are peace and from you comes peace.

Trump also signaled that brokering more peace deals in the Middle East is a priority for him, claiming that Saudi Arabia might be the next. Skeptics, including many longtime Mideast analysts and former officials, have expressed doubts about their impact and lamented that they ignore the Palestinians, who have rejected them as a stab in the back by fellow Arabs. Two people were slightly wounded.

Palestinians are also concerned the deals mark a betrayal by Arab states which had previously said they would not boost ties with Israel until a Palestinian state is recognised, the BBC adds.

Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani said Bahrain would stand with the Palestinians.

War planes belonging to the Israeli army carry out airstrikes over the Gaza Strip in August.

Asaf Romirowsky, executive director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East, told JNS that the Abraham Accords "debunked" the "conventional orthodoxy of Israeli-Arab relations that all roads must go through Ramallah". These landmark understandings represent a realignment, a paradigm shift wherein peace is prioritized over conflict.

"And in the West Bank and Jerusalem, the Israeli bulldozers continue to demolish Palestinian homes and ethnically cleanse the Palestinians out of their villages and cities on a daily basis", Essa told Al Jazeera.

In a letter, the coalition said that "Palestinian self-determination and human rights are non-negotiable and not for sale", and they demanded "an end to Zionist Colonization of Arab/Palestinian land". "But it is not Middle East peace".

Though negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians last broke down in 2014, some Gulf Arab states and several other Arab countries have long had quiet, informal contacts with Israel.

Local volunteer medics said they treated six people for injuries sustained in the attack, and a further six were given assistance for "emotional or psychological shock". "The deals are stains of shame on the forehead of those leaders who sold the Palestinian cause for a very cheap price".

With Trump up for re-election on November 3, the accords could help shore up support among pro-Israel Christian evangelical voters, an important part of his political base.

At least two rockets were fired from the Gaza Strip the previous evening, one of which was intercepted by Israel's Iron Dome anti-missile system.

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.

"I would have no problem in selling them the F-35".

Tuesday's agreements broke a decades-old commitment by most of the Arab world to normalize relations with Israel only after it agreed to a two-state solution with the Palestinians.

In addition to the bilateral agreements signed by Israel, the U.A.E. and Bahrain, all three are signing a document dubbed the Abraham Accords after the patriarch of the world's three major monotheistic religions.

Clutching Palestinian flags and wearing blue face masks for protection against the novel coronavirus, demonstrators rallied in the cities of Nablus and Hebron in the occupied West Bank and in the Gaza Strip.
