Agreement Israel Palestine
There is a lively debate about the form of a lasting peace settlement (cf. B the one-state solution and the two-state solution). Authors such as Cook have argued that the one-state solution is rejected by Israel because the nature of Zionism and Jewish nationalism requires a majority Jewish state, while the two-state solution would require the difficult relocation of half a million Jewish settlers living in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.  Palestinian leaders such as Salam Fayyad have rejected demands for a binational state or unilateral declaration of state. Since 2010, only a minority of Palestinians and Israelis have supported the one-state solution.  However, interest in a single-state solution is growing, as the two-state approach has not reached a final agreement.  The agreement makes the United Arab Emirates only the third Arab country to currently have diplomatic relations with the Jewish nation, after Egypt and Jordan recognized Israel`s right to exist decades ago and unite Israel with a powerful Persian Gulf ally in Washington, which shares Iran`s view as an enemy. The partial normalization of Arab relations with Israel – a significant transfer of influence over Palestinian rights in the service of other Arab interests – occurs if the rifts between Israel and the Palestinians continue to widen. These postponements make it even more difficult to reach a negotiated agreement. Just a few moments ago, together with two friends, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed of the United Arab Emirates, I made a very special appeal for them to agree on a historic peace agreement. After 49 years, Israel and the United Arab Emirates will completely normalize diplomatic relations. They will exchange embassies and ambassadors and begin cooperation in all areas and in a wide range of areas, including tourism, education, health, trade and security. This is a truly historic moment.
The unification of two of the United States` closest and most powerful partners in the region – some said this was not possible – is an important step toward building a more peaceful, secure and prosperous Middle East. In September 1995, Rabin, Arafat and Peres signed a peace agreement that provides for the extension of Palestinian autonomy in the West Bank and democratic elections to designate the leadership of the Palestinian Authority.
