An-Najah News - Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh today urged the Arab countries to boycott the signing ceremony of the UAE and Bahrain normalization agreements with Israel in Washington.
Shtayyeh said in the opening of the cabinet weekly session in Ramallah, that Palestinians considered the signing ceremony as “a black day in the history of the Arab nation and as a defeat to the Arab League, which has become an institution of division, damaging the Arab solidarity.”
“This day will be added to the Palestinian calendar of pain and Arab calendar of defeats, as it deals the death blow to the Arab Peace Initiative and Arab solidarity,” he added as he urged the Arabs to stand united in the face of the agreements.
He pointed out that the cabinet was considering recommending that President Mahmoud Abbas “revise Palestine’s relations with the Arab League, which remains tight-lipped on the blatant violation of its own resolutions, none of which has anyway been implemented,” as he described the Arab League as a “symbol of Arab ineptitude”.
“Would it make sense that Arabs accept being allowed by Israel to pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which remains under occupation, on conditions”
