Continuing Normalisation

UAE and Bahrain: In the wake of the Abraham Accords, groups of young activists from Israel and these two countries formed an interfaith organisation named Sharaka (“Partnership” in Arabic).

The initiative aims “to strengthen the bonds between the young people in the region, build greater trust and promote a real warm and enduring peace. “This past December Sharaka brought the first official visit of a delegation of young leaders to Israel. The aims of Sharaka include: to promote: Holocaust awareness and education; interfaith and intercultural dialogue; of the importance of the IHRA definition of antisemitism, and combatting online antisemitism.

The UAE approved an Embassy (sadly enough) in Tel-Aviv while Israel appointed the Ambassador to Dubai.  Morocco received the Israeli interim charge d’affaires in Rabat.

Sudan is proceeding apace with the normalisation process, such as opening embassies in both countries, receiving the Israeli Intelligence Minister for talks, trying to reverse a decade’s old law that forbids business with Israeli citizens or importing Israeli goods, dozens of protesters burned the Israeli flag in the Sudanese capital to protest against the normalisation.

Antisemitism: While Israel sees a drop in negative Arabic social media content on peace agreements, as Mjad Taha a Bahrain based researcher and author put it, ”Anti-Semitism is on the March from Kuwait to Tunisia”.

The U.S: Jake Sullivan, the U.S. National Security adviser (NSA) to President Trump promised to work with Israel to build on existing regional normalisation agreements. The approach of the new President will be explored in our upcoming instalments: The election of President Bidden: What now for Israel?

Surprising comments from Iran

In the meantime, a former Ayatollah Masoumi –Tehrani whose title was revoked because of his disagreements with the Regime, now living in Tehran gave a full interview on an Israeli television Channel 12 and stated: “It is high time that the Iranian regime ceases to invent enemies that do not exists. “

Referring to the government’s intention to destroy Israel he cautioned, “Do not forget that these slogans were also those of Iraqi leader the late Saddam Hussein, and we all know what happened to him… The Iranians and the Jews are joined by many years of friendship. I have never met Iranians who do not have a positive view of Israel.” (My translation from French)

Turkey’s fake offer of a thaw in diplomatic relations

The Turkish president Recep Erdogan, currently in the dog house of U.S sanctions, a staunch supporter of Hamas who aids and abets some of the organisation’s terrorist schemes; a fierce Islamist; an antisemite and enemy of Israel sought to repair his relations with Israel and offered to restore full diplomatic relations.

Israel’s reply was short and sharp: There will be no thaw in the ties, until the former closes the Istanbul office of the Hamas terrorist group. The kind of response the President is not used to receiving from the European Union.

Remember Beirut?

As an aside: On January 22 a story appeared that immediately earned the attention of anyone concerned with terror attacks.  Fire Department of New York fire protection inspectors attended a Brooklyn warehouse where they discovered 904 propane cylinders stacked “from floor to ceiling” in a refrigeration unit. The FDNY stated that the warehouse manager admitted to ordering the 20 lb. tanks for the purpose of selling them to a middleman, who would resell them to restaurants and businesses needing to heat outdoor dining areas.

According to the New York Daily News.

“Mohamed G. Mohamed, who leases the space where the tanks were found around 2 p.m. on Nevins Ave. near Union St. in Gowanus, was arrested and charged with one count of second-degree reckless endangerment.”

A food truck client, who uses Mohamed’s services, told the Daily News, “He gives us propane. I’ve never seen that many [propane  tanks]. I’ve seen 20 or 30. That is too many.”

According to the report, Mohamed, who also had his own food trucks parked at the warehouse, was given a desk appearance ticket and released that same evening.
