United Arab Emirates (UAE) Wednesday marked one year since it normalized ties with Israel, a move that drew Palestinian anger and further promoted the colonization agenda inside the Knesset, but one that leaders hope could reap a trillion dollars in economic exchanges.Watched by then United States President Donald Trump, the UAE and Gulf neighbor Bahrain formally recognized Israel on Sept. 15, 2020, in Washington, prompting Palestinian accusations of a “stab in the back.”The surprise step, under the U.S.-brokered Abraham Accords, broke with decades of Arab consensus that ruled out formal ties while the Palestinian conflict was unresolved. It marked a thaw in the region, with Morocco and Sudan soon following suit and regional power Saudi Arabia, the world’s top oil producer, allowing some overflights from Israel.
