The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned a recent deal between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Israel for betraying the Palestinian cause, noting that the people of the region will not forgive the Abu Dhabi administration for its hypocritical act.

“While betraying the Palestinian cause to serve its narrow interests, the UAE is trying to present this as a kind of act of self-sacrifice for Palestine. History and the conscience of the people living in the region will not forget and never forgive this hypocritical behavior,” a statement by the ministry said Friday, adding that the Palestinian people and administration are right to display strong reaction against the deal announced by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The ministry also said it was extremely concerned about the UAE’s attempt to unilaterally abolish the Arab Peace Initiative, which was endorsed by the Arab League in 2002.

The statement continued by noting that the deal, which is presented as support to the Palestinian cause, has no credibility, while adding that the UAE disregards Palestinian will through secret plans in line with the “stillborn” U.S. Middle East plan that Turkey deems null and void.

“The UAE leadership has no authority to hold negotiations with Israel on behalf of the Palestinian people and administration, nor make concessions that are critical for Palestine,” the statement said.

On Aug. 13, Trump announced that Israel and the UAE reached a peace deal that proposes to normalize diplomatic relations between the two countries.

In January, Trump announced a so-called peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, although it had already been roundly rejected by Palestinians. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was with Trump at the White House for the announcement, but no Palestinian officials were present. In a news conference, Trump said that Jerusalem will remain Israel’s “undivided capital.”

Turkey rejected the plan, saying that it would not support any plan that is not accepted by Palestinian authorities, adding that peace in the Middle East would not be obtained if policies based on occupation did not end.

The so-called peace plan unilaterally annuls previous U.N. resolutions on the Palestinian issue and suggests giving Israel almost everything they have been demanding.

Following Trump’s decision in December 2017 to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, the issue was carried to the U.N. General Assembly after a draft resolution on the matter was vetoed 14-1 by the U.S. in the U.N. Security Council.

  1. Don’t understand Turkey and Israel have recognized each other when God was a boy.First Muslim nation. This argument of Turkey’s is psychotic.
    Try to openly practice your religion in Iran and or Turkey Mr. Tschannen.
    You would live like a King in Haifa Israel. Your offspring serve in the Israeli Army!

    • “When God was a boy” meaning Jedus Christ. He broke with God to reassure the jews that THE place still exists. Broke: “I care not for the World, only those you gave me”. Turned back: “Unto thee I commend my spirit”, (crucifixion). (The story of Jesus Christ is written in the Bible by his didiples).

    • Thanks for inviting me to Haifa. Sounds good. Not so thrilled about my offspring having to go to the Israeli Army though.

  2. CorporateAmbassador Monitoring Report: More Qadiyanis serve in the Israeli Armed Forces than Pakistan according to a book “Israel: A Profile”, by a renowned Jewish Professor, I.T Naomi. He stated: “600 Ahmadi sect people from Pakistan are working in Israeli army. About 300 are young Pakistani Qadiyani girls and 300 are men, serving in the Israeli army. To many analysts, Qadiaynis are a political issue and have always been a security threat for Pakistan. In India, Qadiyanis have collected and donated thousands to the Indian Army fund after Kargil.

    • Sorry, this seems to be fake news. as far as Israeli Army is concerned. The usual lies to try and arouse anti-Ahmadiyya feelings.

  3. given that you say it is fake news this is appalling.
    Jews wish the Ahmadiyya well. They live in Haifa in safety and are excellent citizens of Greater Israel. Forget the nonsense of the past. Israel will be a beacon of the teachings of Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed PBUH.
    No question. Forget your German Nazi upbringing and false Arabic history. Up until recently Arabs died to save Jews as Muslims did.
    Salaam
    Let us end on a good note.

    • Right, many Muslims saved Jews. Andalusia (the Ottoman Sultan), Morocco (the King), Albania (the neighbors), and others. (In Switzerland a friend of my parents hid Jews so that they would not be sent back to Germany). – And yes, of course, the Ahmadis of Kababir are excellent citizens of Israel. (The Arab-Israeli politician Odeh is also from Kababir, does not consider himself an Ahmadi I think, but is related anyway).
