Despite the lack of official reaction, the hashtag “normalization is a betrayal” began to become fashionable after the announcement, especially among young Saudi activists.  On 19 August, Saudi Foreign Minister Fayçal bin Farhan Al Saud said that the agreement could be considered positive, but that his country would not be able to normalize relations until peace with the Palestinians was signed, as part of the Arab peace initiative, we hope.  Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called the agreement a betrayal of Islam, Arabism, Jerusalem and the Palestinians. He accused the United Arab Emirates of doing Trump a favor in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election.  Lebanese President Michel Aoun, whose Free Patriotic Movement party is an ally of Hezbollah, said lebanon would be open to peace with Israel if their reciprocal problems were resolved and if the UAE had the right to normalize relations with Israel because they are a sovereign nation.  Joe Biden, Trump`s opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, praised the agreement, building on “the efforts of several governments to promote greater Arab-Israeli openness, including the Obama-Biden administration`s efforts to build on the Arab peace initiative.”  Under what better name do we know the peace agreement initiated on 13 August 2020 between the United Arab Emirates and Israel? The contract was signed on September 15, 2020. The treaty recognizes the sovereignty of each state, obliges the two states to exchange ambassadors and conclude bilateral agreements on various subjects, including visa agreements, and will enter into force as soon as ratification.  The agreement was ratified by the Israeli government on 12 October and ratified by the Knesset on 15 October.
On 21 August, Prince Turki bin Fayçal Al Saud wrote in an obvious reply to Mr. Trump, who said on 19 August that he expected Saudi Arabia to accede to the agreement, that the price to be paid for normalizing relations with Israel would be the creation of a sovereign Palestinian state with Jerusalem as its capital. He added that any Arab country that wants to follow in the footsteps of the United Arab Emirates should in future demand a higher price from Israel for peace.  Nabil Abu Rudeineh, a senior adviser to President Mahmoud Abbas, read an official statement in which Palestinian leaders rejected the agreement and called it treason against Jerusalem, the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Palestinians.  The Palestinian Authority (PNA) recalled its ambassador from Abu Dhabi.   Palestinian leaders also said that Hamas leader called Ismail Haniyeh Abbas and rejected the agreement, which Reuters called a “rare manifestation of unity.”  The Ministry of Foreign Affairs reacted reluctantly by calling the Israel-UAE agreement a “significant impact” in a press release, and that Pakistan`s approach is guided by our assessment of how the rights and aspirations of Palestinians are respected and how peace, security and stability are preserved in the region.  Ordinary Palestinians turned to social media to protest the agreement, and some also insulted the Vae.
