A historic peace deal between two warring nations was brokered by the Trump administration after being very strong in the regions for the past 4 years.
Both the UAE and Isreal congratulated each other and the United States upon the announcement that peace had been determined.
A third group of people in the area, who historically seek violence, the Palestinians, were not at all happy about the agreement, vowing to stay violent in opposition of the nationhood of Israel.
The loss of interest over the Palestinian conflicts signals a change in the pro-Palestinian and Anti-Isreal agenda of former President Barack H. Obama, who upon his last hours in the office went around Congress and tried to provide massive wealth to Palestine.
The Associated Press reported that as one of Barack Obama’s final actions in the office before the inauguration of President Donald Trump, he released $221 million to the Palestinian Authority. However, the payment itself was frozen by the State Department under President Trump.
According to Trump’s statement, he helped forge unity between the two countries talking about bringing a higher quality of life with business. “In the coming weeks, there will be agreements on tourism, technology opening direct ties to two of most dynamic societies in the Middle East,” Trump said.
Israel and UAE normalizing relations.
Understatement to call this a big deal.
A new geopolitics of the region. Palestine issue no longer a priority for Gulf States. And very bad news for Iran. https://t.co/yJcOVV2dNA

President Trump was asked about the Palestinian’s negative reaction, Friday, and said:
“Palestinians will without saying it will want to be a part of what we are doing, eventually they will want to be a part of what the big wealthy countries are going to do when they come in, I believe they will come along and want peace.”.
Some reaction on Twitter:
Radical Democrat Rashida Tlaib from Michigan announced that she is committed to the violent and civil unrest in the area no matter what the leaders of the two countries have worked out.
The focus needs to be on promoting solidarity between Palestinians & Israelis who are joining together in struggle to end an apartheid system. We must stand with the people.
This Trump/Netanyahu deal will not alleviate Palestinian suffering—it will further normalize it.

A young Palestinian activist is seen crying.
Shame on UAE, you have betrayed Palestinians by joining hands with Israel.
Few days ago Israel had demolished house of this poor little girl in the middle of the night.
