While the naysayers in the Arab world are blaming the UAE for supporting Israel while it bombs Gaza, the truth is really the opposite.
The current friction and looming war appears directly linked to Iran’s pushback against the UAE’s burgeoning relationship with Israel.
This is the explanation behind Egypt’s failed bid to stop the escalation. Sisi tried, but Iran wants to sow division in the Arab world now by blaming the UAE for Israel killing “innocent” Arabs.
The escalation is coming at a time of an increased likelihood of elections. Usually Bibi Netanyahu Likes to stay away from conflicts during elections, but he may have no choice this time around as Naftali Bennett’s Yamina faction is closing in on replacing him.
