Memorandum of agreement regarding the assignment of individuals at government facilities to serve as liaison officers Ordinary Palestinians took to social media to protest the deal and some also insulted the UAE. Meanwhile, Abbas Zaki, a member of Fatah`s Central Committee, called the agreement a breakdown of the Arab consensus on the management of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He accused the United Arab Emirates of betraying Arabs and Palestinians before asking the ANP to withdraw its ambassador from the United Arab Emirates and also called on the Arab League to cancel the 2002 Arab peace initiative.  Under the 1993 Oslo Accords – the last major agreement on the dispute – Israel and the PLO reaffirmed that the claims to Jerusalem would only be decided in final status negotiations. Today, Israel regards the whole of Jerusalem as its capital, while the Palestinian Authority claims East Jerusalem as the seat of a future Palestinian state and considers Israel`s power on the ground as an occupation. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said he opposed the new agreement and said no one had the right to speak on behalf of the Palestinians. Hamas, which controls Gaza, spoke of a “political sin.” Jared Kushner, the trump administration official who participated in the negotiations of the agreement, told CBS News that the deal would make the Middle East more peaceful and hopeful, meaning fewer U.S. troops would have to be deployed in the region.  Foreign Affairs Minister Mike Pompeo said the agreement was an important step toward stabilizing the region and was good for the world.  The Tunisian People`s Representatives` Assembly criticized the agreement and said it was in solidarity with the Palestinian cause.  Many people protested outside the United Arab Emirates Embassy in Tunis, people burned Israeli flags and photos of UAE President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, while supporting the Palestinian cause for independence.  Tunisian President Kais Saied then said that Tunisia was not interfering in the agreement and would not oppose, but would support the Palestinians.
 The Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the agreement and said that the history and people of the Middle East would not forgive and would not forget what the United Arab Emirates did and that it was a violation of the 2002 Arab peace initiative.
