The Arab World Is Fed Up with the Palestinians

(Ynet News) Ben-Dror Yemini - The biggest surprise following Israel's peace accord with the UAE is that there was no division within the Arab world about it. In fact, almost all Arab countries - except for Yemen and Qatar - have expressed their support for the agreement and hopped on the peace train. The Arab world is fed up. It realizes, albeit belatedly, that wherever Islamic radicalism is involved - whether Shi'ite or Sunni - the result is always destruction and ruin. The Arab world refuses to continue entertaining every Palestinian whim. Beginning in the late 1990s, Arab leaders realized that the "Palestinian problem" was not an asset, but a burden. After all, being hostile to Israel never benefited anyone. Although Abbas stopped the violence, he stuck to Arafat's diplomatic policy of always saying "no," regardless of what was on offer. They never wanted a state for the Palestinian people, they just didn't want one for the Jews. Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians and it resulted in Hamas rule. Arab leaders know that Hamas' parent organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, hates them. When the Palestinians choose peace over the fantasy of destroying Israel, their situation will improve drastically.
