As expected, the Palestinians are condemning Sudan for making an agreement to normalize ties with Israel; Yousef: others who normalized ties with the state of the Israeli occupation represents a new stab in the back of the Palestinian people and a betrayal of the just Palestinian cause.
Following the announcement of the agreement between Israel and Sudan to normalize their diplomatic ties, the Palestinians voiced their rejection, citing it as another Arab ‘stab in the back’ to the Palestinian cause. They made similar comments after both Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) decided to normalize their ties with Israel as well.
But what even is the Palestinian cause? Time and time again, whenever they’re offered an opportunity to better themselves, their people, and bring stability to the region, they reject it. And it was this type of relentless hypocrisy that has led to the shift of focus for many Arab countries. And don’t think for one minute that it’s only these three countries reconsidering their commitment to the “Palestinian cause.”
The Palestinians released a statement saying, “No one has the right to speak on behalf of the Palestinian people and the Palestinian issue. The path to a just and comprehensive peace should be based on international law and legitimacy so as to end the Israeli occupation of the land of the State of Palestine and achieve independence for the Palestinian people in their state, with east Jerusalem as its capital – on the 1967 borders. The Palestinian. Leadership will take the necessary decisions to protect the legitimate rights of the Palestinian people.”
The Iranian terror proxy, Hamas, and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIL) also condemned the agreement saying, “We express our condemnation and outrage over the despicable and humiliating normalization that does not suit Sudan’s people and history. We call on the heroic people of Sudan to reject the shameful agreement and the establishment of any ties with the criminal enemy.”
Sudan is the third Arab country to make this move concerning Israel; all of them within the last few months.
