Press TV, Gaza
Palestinians in the blockaded Gaza Strip have strongly condemned attempts by a number of Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region to normalize relations with the Israeli regime.
Palestinians were angered by the airing of a new television series by Saudi-owned Middle East Broadcasting Center (MBC) during the Holy Month of Ramadan.
The television drama called Umm Haroun provoked a storm among Arab viewers, who regarded it as an invitation to normalization of ties with the Israeli regime.
During a press conference Palestinian resistance factions said that such bids seek to kill the Palestinian cause.
Observers say some Arab countries in the Persian Gulf region have moved from normalization with the Tel Aviv into full partnership against the resistance.
The Islamic Jihad Movement denounced the normalization efforts describing it as treason and backstabbing.
Normalization of ties with the Israeli regime has been taking place both covertly and overtly in recent years.
Warming of relation between Israel and Arab countries in the Persian Gulf has increased following Saudi Arabia’s lead and with the full backing of the United States.
Palestinians maintain that they will never accept normalization with an enemy that occupied and stole their land.
Over the past years, some Arab countries have been normalizing their ties with Israel, a move which observers believe would further embolden the regime to press on with its aggression against Palestinians.
