The Abraham Accords, a series of agreements to normalize relations between Israel and several Arab states, have been severely undermined by the recent Israeli war crimes committed in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank.
The accords, which were signed in 2020 with the mediation of the United States, were hailed as a historic breakthrough for peace and cooperation in the Middle East.
However, the brutal Israeli attacks on Palestinian civilians and infrastructure, as well as the ongoing blockade and occupation of Gaza, have sparked outrage and condemnation from Muslims across the region and the world.
Israeli airstrikes that killed more than 500 Palestinian civilians in violated the principles of distinction and proportionality under international humanitarian law. The Israeli military also faced accusations of using excessive force against Palestinian protesters and other parts of the occupied territories, injuring thousands and killing hundreds of children, women, and elders.
The Israeli war crimes have also provoked a strong response from the global community.
The escalating violence has put the Abraham Accords to the test, as the Arab signatories of the agreements have faced pressure from their own populations and other Muslim countries to reconsider their ties with Israel.
The United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan have all expressed their solidarity with the Palestinian cause and condemned Israel’s actions. Some of them have also suspended or reduced their diplomatic and economic cooperation with Israel, while others have called for an international intervention to end the conflict.
