Exceptional news took place today in the US-based Wall Street Journal (WSJ) newspaper. In the news, the crisis created by the “normalization agreement” in the country was mentioned.
ISRAEL-UAE Deal 2020 AND THE KING SALMAN
It was alleged that the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman wanted his country to sign a “normalization” agreement with Israel, after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain, but his father, King Salman bin Abdulaziz, opposed this.
According to the article in the US-based Wall Street Journal (WSJ), there is a dispute in the Saudi Royal Family between Crown Prince Salman and King Abdulaziz about “normalizing relations with Israel”.
ISRAEL WANT TO LEAVE THE PALESTINIAN ISSUE
In the article, which states that the Saudi King has long supported the boycott against Israel and the Palestinians’ demand for an independent state for many years, the Crown Prince sees it as a difficult conflict to trade with Israel and unite against Iran to leave behind the Israeli-Palestinian issue. The wish was recorded.
The Crown Prince HIDDEN THE ISRAEL-UAE Deal FROM THE SAUDI KING
The Saudi King was shocked by US President Donald Trump’s announcement on August 13, during his just-begun holiday, that they had signed an agreement between Israel and the UAE to “completely normalize” their relations.
The reason for this confusion was that the Crown Prince did not inform his father of the agreement between Israel and the UAE in advance. The Crown Prince feared that his father would block the agreement on the grounds that the Palestinians did not contribute to the state demand. So much so that, lacking the support of the Saudi King, the UAE would not have been so easy to deal with Israel.
Following the Israel-UAE Deal 2020, the Saudi King told the Foreign Minister to re-express his country’s commitment to the establishment of a Palestinian state. In response, a royal family member close to the Saudi King wrote an article in a Saudi Arabian-owned newspaper reiterating his country’s stance and hinting that the UAE should press Israel for more concessions.
THE CROWN PRINCE HAS ALSO REACHED BAHRAIN
During a meeting between Trump’s son-in-law and Chief Adviser, Jared Kushner, and the Crown Prince in Saudi Arabia on October 1st, Prince Salman said his father “would not accept a normalization agreement between Israel and Saudi Arabia”.
The Crown Prince said that most the Kingdom can do for now, due to the objection of the Saudi King, is “to get little Bahrain to join the agreement.
BAHRAIN AND UAE AGREEMENT WITH ISRAEL
US President Trump announced that on August 13, Israel and the UAE had reached an agreement to “completely normalize relations” between Israel and Bahrain on September 11.
After Egypt in 1979 and Jordan is 1994, the third Arab country that reached a normalization agreement with Israel was the UAE, and the fourth Arab country was Bahrain.
