VIVA – The peace agreement between Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with Israel, has not only drawn a lot of criticism. It is predicted that the impact of the agreement between the two kingdoms could trigger a massive war between Islamic countries in the Arabian Peninsula.
In the news VIVA Military, Friday, August 14, 2020, the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, revealed that Israel’s peace with the United Arab Emirates was the result of a silent operation by the Israeli Intelligence Agency (Mossad). Not only the UAE, but Bahrain finally agreed to normalize relations with the Zionist state.
Not only Bahrain and the UAE, Israel made peace with two other Arab countries, Egypt and Jordan. Relations between Israel and Egypt normalized after the peace agreement between the two countries in 1979, while Jordan agreed to make peace with Israel in 1994.
Netanyahu made a surprising statement at the end of August 2020. According to him, Israel did not only hold meetings with the four countries. However, there are a number of other Arab Islamic countries that have also opened up to Israel in peace efforts.
“Many other meetings with Arab and Islamic leaders were held, which were not announced. These leaders recognize that their vital interest lies in normalizing relations with Israel,” Netanyahu was quoted as saying. VIVA Military from New York Times.
From Netanyahu’s statement, Israel’s peace with Egypt, Jordan, the UAE and Bahrain poses a high risk of horizontal conflict between Islamic countries in the Arabian Peninsula.
How not, if the four countries are willing to open up with Israel, that is not the case for Iran. In a previous article, the Guardian of the Islamic Revolution of Iran (IRGC) strongly stated its condemnation of Bahrain and the UAE. Unsurprisingly, the UAE called the two countries traitors.
“The deal is historical stupidity and is a clear betrayal. It will hasten Israel’s extermination,” the Revolutionary Guard’s statement was quoted as saying. VIVA Military from Middle East Eye.
Iran, under the command of Supreme Leader of the Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, and President Hassan Rouhani, has frequently made threats against Israel. Iran’s attitude cannot be separated from its solidarity with the struggle of the Palestinian people.
Iranian resistance to Israel is seen in Syria, where rebel forces mobilized by Tehran have frequently been involved in battles with Israeli forces in the Golan Heights. Even on the Lebanese border, Iranian-affiliated Hezbollah forces also frequently held confrontations with IDF soldiers.
Not only Iran, Turkey is also one country that is very opposed to Israel. Turkey and Iran had previously inaugurated a coalition to support the struggle of the Palestinian people in resistance to the Zionist regime of Israel.
“We may suspend diplomatic relations or withdraw our ambassador (from the UAE). Because, we will support the Palestinian people. We do not allow Palestine to be defeated or let it be defeated,” said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, quoted as saying. VIVA Military from Ahval News.
A number of conflicts that have caused the Islamic countries of the Arabian Peninsula to topple each other, it seems that there is an Israeli war behind them. Therefore, it is not wrong to have a number of allegations that peace between Israel and Bahrai and Egypt could trigger war between the Islamic countries of the Arabian Peninsula.
