Amira Hass wrote that the agreement was the result of the Palestinian Authority`s continued neglect of relations with the United Arab Emirates. According to hate, diplomatic relations were severed in 2012 by the PLO to deny the UAE`s good relations with Mohammed Dahlan, the political enemy of PLO President Mahmoud Abbas. The PNA`s animosity towards the UAE continued to June 2020, when the PLO rejected aid sent by the UAE during the COVID-19 pandemic, by the grounds that it was it was felt without prior agreement and through an Israeli airport. Hatred is a PLO more concerned with domestic politics than with governance, which contributes to economic decline and strained external relations.  On 17 August, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu declared that Israel was launching direct flights to the United Arab Emirates using Saudi airspace.  Netanyahu`s office and other officials later denied reports of authorization to sell F-35 fighter jets to the United States after the agreement.  Emirati Foreign Minister Anwar Gargash said in an interview with the Atlantic Council that the peace agreement must remove all obstacles to the acquisition of the jets, while any sale would take years to negotiate and deliver, and the UAE had not reapplyed after the agreement.  A4: Contrary to some comments, these agreements are more important to the Arab world than to Israel. Israelis can derive some degree of emotional security from the fact that they feel less isolated in the region and they could benefit from some marginal advantages that they would not otherwise have been able to obtain in their struggle with Iran. But it will radically change the way Arab states deal with each other and their problems. In many ways, this is a declaration of independence from the Arab world, which it apparently has not concluded to meet one of the challenges they face and lead them into struggles they cannot win. The Emiratis believe that they have the strength and confidence to treat every country in the world bilaterally without 20 other countries supporting them. Despite the lack of official reaction, the hashtag “normalization is a betrayal” began to become fashionable after the announcement, especially among young Saudi activists.
 On 19 August, Saudi Foreign Minister Fayçal bin Farhan Al Saud said that the agreement could be considered positive, but that his country would not be able to normalize relations until peace with the Palestinians was signed, as part of the Arab peace initiative, we hope.  They condemned Abraham`s accords as treason. The new agreement breaks a long-standing Arab consensus that the price of normal relations with Israel is the independence of the Palestinians.
