These agreements are the Trump administration`s most important diplomatic achievement. The Trump administration also had to deny that it had agreed to sell F-35 fighter jets from the United States to the United Arab Emirates in order for the Emiratis to have a condition on Tuesday`s agreement. Last week, Trump adviser Jared Kushner and other senior government officials accompanied an Israeli delegation on Israel`s first flight to the United Arab Emirates to celebrate the deal. Some held signs that called the agreements “treason” and “the deal of shame.” Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority, and said the agreement was “not binding on the Palestinian people.” Fawzi Barhoum, a Hamas spokesman, called it “dangerous and synonymous with a free reward for the Israeli occupation for its crimes and violations at the expense of the Palestinian people.” U.S. officials say the new agreement is the most important step toward peace in the Middle East in two and a half decades, and that similar efforts have had a significant impact. The United Arab Emirates is the third Arab country to establish diplomatic relations with Israel after Egypt in 1978 and Jordan in 1994. The standardization agreement had been underway for some time, but it was concluded when Trump`s peace team, led by Trump`s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz, presidential assistant and special representative for international negotiations, visited the region to make the first commercial flight between Israel and Bahrain, then headed to the United Arab Emirates. according to U.S. officials. In Israel, developments have come at a dangerous time for Mr. Netanyahu, who leads a fragile and fragile coalition government and is on trial for corruption. His promise of annexation, repeated in three elections, had left him in a box after Mr.

Kushner opposed his progress, without going through Mr. Trump`s official peace plan. But shortly after Thursday`s agreement, Netanyahu and his internal political rivals announced that they had made progress in coalition talks. But Dennis B. Ross, a former Middle East peace negotiator who helped mediate the 1993 agreement, said the two events were “very different.” He said the agreements signed on Tuesday were “important” because they show that “the Palestinians cannot freeze the region and prevent open cooperation with Israel.” But the agreement triggered an immediate counter-reaction in the region of opposing parts of the ideological spectrum.
