The endeavor of the new generation of ruling elites in the Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and Oman to move, with their regimes’ relations with Israel, from intersection to alliance, secret and then overt, strengthened strongly after the wave of popular uprisings in the Arab region in 2011, and the resulting sense of existential threat in these Systems. Before this date, since the beginning of the sixties of the last century, the latter cooperated with the United States and Israel to confront the rise of any independent regional power, which is poised to turn into a pole that attracts a part of its countries and peoples, and to adjust the balance of power in it in a way that is in contradiction with the American hegemony and its local agents. The same reasons prompted the sheikhdoms, the Emirates and the Gulf monarchies to fight Nasserist Egypt in the 1960s, Iraq in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and Iran since the victory of its revolution, but with greater ferocity since the beginning of the second millennium. The establishment and survival of these regimes was linked to Western and American hegemony, and they did not hesitate to integrate into their plans, side by side with Israel, to confront any independent project with a regional horizon, be it Arab or Islamic. This is the secret of its hostility today to Iran and even Erdogan’s Turkey. But the scene of the escape of Tunisian President Ben Ali, the fall of his counterpart Mubarak, and the spread of the wave of popular uprisings throughout the region in light of American and Western confusion, and the inability to support the “allies” that panicked it. At this very pivotal moment, the genius of the new generation of its rulers has abandoned the “Israeli safety card” option.
The main premise on which this option was based is that Israel has a supportive system in the United States
The main premise on which this option was based is that Israel has a support system in the United States, not just a lobby, and that its ability to influence its Middle Eastern policy is enormous in every sense of the word. In addition, this new generation is convinced that Iran and its allies in the first degree, followed in the second degree by Turkey and its allies, are common existential enemies to them and to Israel. Finally, this globalized generation that views Arabism and religion as a relic of a bygone past sees in partnership with Israel the military, economic and technological strength as an opportunity to maximize the capabilities of its regimes. They worked to strengthen the ties with the Zionist entity and its elites to confirm that they are a “strategic treasure” for Israel, as the former Zionist Minister Binyamin Ben Eliezer described the ousted Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak days after his fall. It is clear that they have succeeded in this. Even Donald Trump admitted this “beautiful” to them when he responded to his critics for his support for Mohammed bin Salman after the scandal of killing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, reminding them of the role of the first in standing by Israel against those who want to remove it.
The American-Israeli-Emirati-Saudi alliance is no longer a secret for anyone, but the keenness to show it, initially with the Emirates, is linked to internal political calculations of its three parties, and their desire to record an illusory success against the axis of resistance by celebrating the achievement of such a “breakthrough”, while They failed in the central battle with him, centered on his accumulation and development of military and missile capabilities that contribute to a gradual but continuous change of the balance of power in the region to their detriment.
Trump, who sees the chances of his re-election waning and is incapable of making any internal achievement that would prevent it, is looking instead for outside achievements that might help stop his rapid decline in popularity. Netanyahu, accused of corruption, who is facing protests the like of which a Zionist prime minister has never before encountered since the establishment of the entity, to the point that some people talk about the possibility of a civil war, which he hopes will reduce its intensity by highlighting success abroad. The UAE complied with the requests of the American sponsor and the Israeli ally, but it, in turn, is involved in an open conflict with Turkey and its allies, and Libya is its most prominent arena at present, and it is a party in the anti-Iran axis despite its attempts to normalize shyly with it, which was rejected by the United States. It complies with American and Israeli requests in exchange for protection from its powerful opponents. Crisis parties, who were not able to win the central missile battle against the axis of resistance, are celebrating by speaking out what was known. As for Mohammed bin Zayed, he must stop and think carefully about what may result from his designation as a traitor in the courtyards of Al-Aqsa, in Jerusalem, the nation’s capital.
