An Emirati who helped broker the Abraham Accords between Israel and four Arab countries last year has penned a column published in Newsweek calling to free Palestinians from Hamas and Iran.
Dr. Ali al Nuaimi, chairman of the Defense Affairs, Interior and Foreign Relations Committee of the UAE’s Federal National Council, writes that “the Palestinian people’s rights and hopes have been hijacked by Hamas to serve an Iranian agenda.”
He said that the fight against “Iran’s extremism” must continue and that there is no turning back from the agreement that normalized relations between Israel and the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco despite the Trump administration no longer being in power in Washington.
“Since the announcement of the Abraham Accords, we have seen that we can build bridges of trust and respect,” Nuaimi writes. “We in the UAE had laid the foundations; we had already changed the education system and the narrative of the religious figures, readying our people for the path to peace.”
Nuaimi concedes that Hamas and Iran are winning the propaganda war, lamenting the false narrative that dominated the international media during the recent conflict that Israel is occupying Gaza when in fact it is “occupied by Hamas.” The terrorist organization, not Israel, is causing the Palestinian people to suffer, according to Nuaimi.
“Hamas and the Palestinian leadership have hijacked the minds of 2 million Palestinians to sell their political and terrorist agendas,” Nuaimi concludes. “We want the Palestinian people to enjoy what we enjoy, to have what we have and create a better future for a new generation. But we have to do this together, with all the stakeholders in the region, from NGOs to schools, religious leaders and governments. We cannot do this alone.”
