Palestinians Turned Down by Arab League

In a stunning move, the Arab League failed to pass a proposed Palestinian resolution, which would have condemned the normalization deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The Arab League comprises 22 member states that include Bahrain, Libya, Lebanon, Qatar, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and more. A senior Arab league official was quoted as saying, “Discussion around this point was serious and comprehensive but it did not lead to agreement over the resolution proposed by the Palestinians.”

The Palestinians probably have more friends in the United Nations than they do in the Arab League where they have full membership status. The Arab countries believe that normalizing a relationship with Israel is more important than the Palestinian’s complaint. I believe that there’s one way out for the Palestinians and it’s not through the Arab League, it will be into the arms of Iran.  Israel and the Arab League are not blind to this. The Palestinians are already shaking hands, in many ways, with the Iranians. Ultimately, we just have to wait and see what happens in the end, but please continue to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
