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". Meanwhile, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan arrived in the U.S. capital at the head of a high-level official UAE delegation to participate in the signing ceremony of the historic peace accord, the State-run Emirates News Agency reported.

The move comes amid Palestinian anger about recent US-brokered agreements to normalise relations between Israel and two Gulf nations - the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

Stipulating the full normalisation of relations between UAE-Israel, the Abraham Accord will make the UAE the third Arab state ever to recognize Israel, following Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994).

Since the announcement of the Abraham Accord, the UAE and Israel have taken proactive steps to start to meet the objectives of the Accord, including through the UAE's announcement of the abolition of the Israel Boycott Law (Federal Law No. 15 of 1972) and the meeting of officials from both countries in the UAE, for the first time.

"Tuesday will be a black day in the history of the Arab nation and a defeat of the Arab League institution".

The Bahrain-Israel agreement came as another shock to Palestinians who still didn't recover from the news of the UAE-Israel normalization.

The Palestinian leadership wants an independent state based on the de facto borders before the 1967 war, in which Israel occupied the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and annexed East Jerusalem.
