‘Militant’ wrong on Israel-UAE pact

The Militant  is mistaken when it claims that the Israel-United Arab Emirates pact is a step forward towards recognition of “an independent Palestinian state.” Normalizing relations with Israel is good. However, it does nothing to help or hinder the fight for a Palestinian state because the Arab regimes have never championed the Palestinian struggle.

No Arab government, no U.N. resolution, no Trump deal will help the Palestinians fight for a state. Creating illusions on such deals will do nothing to unite working people in the Middle East against the reactionary Palestinian leaderships and Israeli capitalist government.
