Israel seeks destruction of Arab world through normalization, Arab states ‎will agree to delete parts of Quran - Fatah spokesman

Official Fatah Spokesman Osama Al-Qawasmi: “I say to all the Arab ‎leaders, to those who have normalized and to those who are thinking and ‎dreaming that they can normalize: If you think that through normalization ‎with Israel you can be saved, you are hallucinating. Who brings the fox into ‎his home? Israel does not want the success of Saudi Arabia, the UAE, ‎Bahrain, or any state in the region. It is interested in fragmenting the region. It ‎is interested in Iraq being destroyed and Syria being destroyed, and they will ‎anticipate the destruction of all the Gulf states… Today they praise Israel – ‎sheikhs who unfortunately have changed and become hypocrites – and they ‎say that Israel is the state of peace… I fear that tomorrow the US and the ‎White House will ask you to erase the Hadiths (i.e., Prophetic sayings) and ‎the verses of the Quran that are connected to the Al-Aqsa Mosque and ‎Jerusalem, and you (i.e, the UAE and Bahrain) will agree to this.”‎

Osama Al-Qawasmi is also a member of Fatah’s Revolutionary Council

Israeli peace agreements with the UAE and Bahrain (the Abraham Accords), Sudan, and Morocco – an agreement normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was announced on Aug. 13, 2020, under the mediation of US President Donald Trump. Following the UAE, Bahrain reached a similar peace agreement with Israel, as was announced on Sept. 11, 2020. The agreements were signed at the White House on Sept. 15, 2020, by Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and Bahraini Minister of Foreign Affairs Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani. Pursuant to the Abraham Accords, Israel and the UAE will discuss bilateral cooperation on a number of topics. In exchange for the agreement, Israel agreed to suspend its previously announced plans to apply Israel's civilian law to parts of Judea, Samaria, and the Jordan Valley as per the Trump peace plan. The US announced that “Muslims throughout the world who wish to come in peace to pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque, will now be able to fly to Tel Aviv through Abu Dhabi to do so and will be welcomed.” On Oct. 23, 2020, Sudan also formally agreed to normalize relations with Israel.
