Palestinians Are No Longer a Priority

(Middle East Monitor-UK) Dr. Adnan Abu Amer - The Arab League refused to hold an urgent meeting at the request of the Palestinian Authority to discuss the UAE-Israel normalization agreement. This suggests that the Arab world is more or less satisfied with the deal. In the deal with the Emirates, Israel is taking a big step toward its long-term strategic goal of integration into the region. Saudi Arabia's permission for the first Israel-to-UAE flight this week to use Saudi airspace is partial normalization. The Arab world in general still cares about the Palestinians. However, the Palestinian issue has been transformed from a pan-Arab cause and is no longer a priority for the UAE and other Arab states.
