Israel is using Arab peace deals to expand their state "from the Nile River to the Euphrates River" claims PA

Excerpt of an op-ed by Omar Hilmi Al-Ghoul, regular columnist for the official PA daily


Headline: “The ridiculous states’ sovereignty”



“There is something special that characterizes the Arab states and their sovereignty, and it is the Arab-Zionist conflict and the establishment of the Israeli colonialist state on the ruins of the Palestinian people’s Nakba (i.e., “the catastrophe,” Palestinian term for the establishment of the State of Israel), in order to control the Arabs. What confirms this is the Zionist movement’s slogan: ‘Your state, Israel, is from the Nile [River] to the Euphrates [River].’ According to the book of [former Israeli President] Shimon Peres, The New Middle East, which was published in 1994, Israel’s borders are currently from the [Atlantic] Ocean to the [Persian] Gulf…


Therefore the statements on sovereign decisions by the UAE, Bahrain, and whoever follows them in the foreseeable future and normalizes [their relations with Israel] for nothing in return (see note below –Ed.), are a national and pan-Arab farce and collapse. It is impossible that any Arab state will have sovereignty through peace with the Israeli colonialist state and recognition for nothing in return, since this state was established as an implementation tool whose goal is theft and exploitation of the resources, interests, and rights of all the Arabs.





Israeli peace agreements with the UAE and Bahrain – an agreement normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), called the Abraham Accords, was announced on Aug. 13, 2020, under the mediation of US President Donald Trump. Following the UAE, Bahrain signed a similar peace agreement with Israel, as was announced on Sept. 11, 2020. 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.”
