BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:00 P.M.) – The Palestinian leadership called on the United Arab Emirates to immediately withdraw from the “shameful declaration of normalization” with Israel, describing it as “a betrayal of Al-Aqsa.”

The official spokesman for the Palestinian presidency, Nabil Abu Rudeineh, said that the Palestinian leadership calls for an immediate meeting of the League of Arab States and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to reject the announcement of the Emirati-Israeli normalization.

He said that “the Palestinian leadership considers the Emirati-Israeli normalization to destroy the Arab Peace Initiative and an aggression against the Palestinian people.”

“The Palestinian leadership affirms that the PLO is the sole and legitimate representative of the Palestinian people,” he added.

On Thursday, U.S. President Donald Trump announced the ‘historical’ move to normalize ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

I now understand which regime was responsible for the fire that engulfed one of the largest buildings in the UAE. The same regime that bombed Lebanon’s Beirut.

Iran. Because Turkey wants to liberate Al-Aqsa and make a gas deal with Palestine. While Palestine has trade relations with Israel already.

Iran leads a proxy war on Israel. Iran-backed roaches shot MANY missiles and rockets on Israel, Hezbollah and IRGC attacked/bombed Israeli citizens or Jews in 56 countries. If Iran wasn’t led by cowards, they’d dare to start a war on Israel… And lose it like all other morons did… Israel is too nice with Iran : the use of proxies is a de facto declaration of war under Hague Convention, therefore, Israel has the right to use military force directly against Iran. Had they a hawk of my kind, the South-Pars $45bn platforms and facilities would be the 1st to… Read more »
