Israel Moves to Normal Relations w Muslims
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday February 4, 2020

I've Been Thinking:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has embarked on a diplomatic tour. He is meeting with the Muslim leaders of Uganda and Sudan. The most significant Muslim leader on Netanyahu’s roster is Abdel Fattah al Burhan of Sudan.

This is a dramatic move.

Netanyahu’s tour is the continuation of the momentum that Israel has been developing over the past few years. It is also extremely troubling - at least for the Palestinians and especially in the aftermath of the Trump plan.

Just as Natanyahu is on a tour of Muslim countries, President Mahmoud Abbas is on a tour. His mission is to garner support for Palestinian opposition to the plan.

Netanyahu’s success does not please the Palestinians.

PLO Secretary General Saeb Erakat articulated just how damaging the meeting between the Sudanese leader and Netanyahu was to the Paelstinians. He said the Monday meeting between Netanyahu and Sudan's leader Abdel Fattah al-Burhan is a knife in the back of the Palestinian people.

That was a very powerful statement from a very articulate spokesperson for the Palestinians.
