Why Arabs Are Annoyed with the Europeans

(Gatestone Institute) Khaled Abu Toameh - The European Parliament has enraged many Arabs by calling for a boycott of Expo 2020 Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). It has called on EU member states not to participate and for international companies to withdraw their sponsorship. The timing of the resolution is problematic and implies that the European Parliament is seeking to punish the UAE for signing a peace treaty with Israel. The resolution coincided with the first anniversary of the Abraham Accords. Israel is participating in Expo 2020 Dubai. The European Parliament resolution targeting the UAE is a valuable gift from the Europeans to Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad and all those who oppose the Abraham Accords and any peace agreement between Israel and the Arabs. By singling out the UAE, the European Parliament has chosen to side with the enemies of peace, cooperation and normalization between Israelis and Arabs. Such resolutions give the enemies of peace ammunition to keep fighting to achieve their goal of destroying Israel. The enemies of peace are not only opposed to cooperation between Israel and the Arabs. They are opposed to the existence of Israel. Most of them want to replace Israel with an Islamist state. By calling for boycotting the Dubai event, the European Parliament has emboldened extremist Arabs and Muslims.
