Jordanian Prince deletes tweet bashing the UAE-Israel peace deal

Link to article tweeted from the official Twitter account of Jordanian Prince Ali bin Hussein; the tweet was later deleted


The link is to an article published by the independent news website Middle East Eye entitled “UAE-Israel deal: Breakthrough or betrayal?” which criticizes the Israel-UAE peace agreement – see note below.


The link includes the main image from the article showing signs with a picture of UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan with a red “X” and a footprint over his face, and the word “Traitor” at the bottom. Underneath the signs is the Star of David in blue, which is apparently part of an Israeli flag on the ground.



Israel-UAE peace agreement (Abraham Accords) – an agreement normalizing diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which was announced on Aug. 13, 2020, under the mediation of US President Donald Trump. Pursuant to the agreement, the countries 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.”
