UAE, Bahrain FMs Arrive in Washington to Sign Peace Deal with Israel

The national flags of Bahrain Israel the UAE and the United States are flown along a road in Israeli resort city of Netanya

Speaking during the cabinet weekly session in Ramallah, Shtayyeh considered the signing ceremony as "a black day in the history of the Arab nation and as a defeat to the Arab League, which has become an institution of division, driving a wedge in Arab solidarity".

The Bahraini decision, which was announced by US President Donald Trump on Friday was made despite repeated assurances that Manama will not extend diplomatic ties with Israel until Palestinians obtain their rights in accordance with worldwide law. The first two Arab countries that recognised Israel were Egypt and Jordan, in 1979 and 1994, respectively.

The ceremony will be attended by US President Donald Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed and Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdul-Latif al-Zayani.

Civil society groups in Bahrain have rejected the government's normalization agreement with Israel which is expected to be signed formally in Washington DC on Tuesday.

This announcement follows the United Arab Emirates' ("UAE") agreement to normalise diplomatic relations with Israel under the agreement known as the Abraham Accord.

The agreement was "a stab in the back of the Palestinian cause and the Palestinian people", like the UAE-Israel deal announced last month, Ahmad Majdalani, social affairs minister in the occupied West Bank-based PA, told the AFP news agency at the time. The Gulf monarchies and Israel jointly lobbied against the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and both decry Tehran's support of Shi'a militias throughout the Middle East - sharing a similar threat assessment regarding the Islamist political movements that Turkey has come to vigorously support during and after the Arab Spring.
