The government of Oman has publicly supported the agreement (which it described as „historic”). [58] The Grand Mufti of Oman, Ahmed bin Hamad al-Khalili, indirectly criticized the treaty. [59] Ahmed Mulla Talal, spokesman for the Iraqi government, said that Iraq would not interfere in the sovereign affairs of other countries, but that its laws did not allow for the normalization of relations with Israel. [60] In addition to the bilateral agreements signed by Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, all three signed a document called the „Abraham Agreement” after the patriarch of the world`s three major monotheistic religions. The head of the Israeli settler group Yesha Council, David Elhayani,[he], accused Mr. Netanyahu of „betraying” some of his most loyal supporters and of „deceiving half a million people in the region and hundreds of thousands of voters.” Oded Revivi [he], the mayor of Efrat, a settlement of more than 9,000 people south of Jerusalem, supported Netanyahu, arguing that „the Israeli agreement to defer the application of Israeli law in the Jewish settlements of Judea and Samaria was a fair price to pay,” adding that it could change the way settlements are viewed. [40] Beit El Settlement Mayor Shai Alon and Shomron Regional Council President Yossi Dagan also criticized the agreement. [37] Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the President of the United States, condemned Kuwait`s position. However, according to Al Jazeera, his conviction was widely shared on the Internet as positive.

[53] However, the Government of Kuwait itself has remained silent on the agreement. On 18 August, 37 Kuwaiti MPs asked them to condemn the agreement. [54] Two days earlier, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas, citing unnamed government sources, had indicated that the Kuwaiti government`s position vis-à-vis Israel was unchanged. [55] In a statement, spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi said the agreements were „an important day,” but cautioned against important unanswered questions, including about the F-35. Pelosi said Congress would „monitor and monitor to ensure that Israel can maintain its qualitative military lead in the region,” referring to a term in U.S. law prohibiting regional arms sales that could threaten Israel. Palestinians expressed anger at the agreements by firing rockets from Gaza at Israel during the ceremony at the White House. The agreements are the first such agreements between Israel and an Arab state since 1994, when the Jewish state established diplomatic relations with Jordan. They are also a further step towards the formation of a de facto alliance between Israel and the Sunni Arab monarchies of the Gulf against their common enemy, Shiite Iran. Pressure on Iran was a central focus of Trump`s foreign policy, and Trump officials worked to build a common regional front against Tehran, in which Saudi Arabia played an important role. The agreements have given only a superficial reference to what „peace in the Middle East” has long evoked: peace between Palestinians and Israelis.
