TEHRAN (Press Shia Agency) – The representative of the Palestinian movement Hamas in Lebanon, Ahmed Abdulhadi, said the ongoing conference in the Bahraini capital of Manama shows the humiliation of some Arab regimes in the face of US-Israeli dictates.
Speaking to the Arabic-language al-Ahed new agency, Abdulhadi deplored the US administration’s so-called “deal of the century” plan and said it is a deal that only benefits the Israeli regime and is aimed at obliterating the Palestinian cause.
“Washington and Tel Aviv are seeking to increase pressures on the Palestinians so that they accept the deal and recognize the establishment of relations between Arab states and the Zionist regime, and thus convey the message to the world that Arabs have no problem with Israel,” he said.
He added that, unfortunately, some Arabs have contributed to the implementation of the deal of the century.
This partnership is the culmination of the Arab regimes’ humiliation in the face of US-Israeli dictates, he went on to say.
The deal of century ploy, fronted by US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, has already been rejected by the Palestinians, who say the White House’s policies have been blatantly biased in favor of Israel.
Palestinians have cut off all contacts with the Trump administration since the president broke with decades of bipartisan policy to recognize al-Quds (Jerusalem) as the capital of Israel in December 2017.
In the meantime, Bahrain is hosting a conference since Tuesday to encourage what it calls investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip as part of Trump’s plan for Palestine.
The so-called “Peace to Prosperity” economic conference, held on June 25 and 26, has been boycotted by Palestinian officials and business leaders.
