The Abraham Accords represent a shameful deal for trade and military alliances between an apartheid state, Israel, and some of the most brutal autocracies in the world, like the UAE and Bahrain. The notion that these are “peace agreements” is false on its face, and even more a deception in the intent behind the agreements, which is largely focused on facilitating war.
It was always going to be a challenge for the Arab states involved to maintain the Accords, and the election of Israel’s extreme racist new government is inevitably going to make that challenge greater. Itamar Ben Gvir wasted no time in poking at the sore spot that is the Temple Mount/Haram al Sharif and it caused ripples throughout the world which hit ashore in New York at the United Nations.
I look at the ramifications in my latest for Mondoweiss.
