What’s being hailed in the United States and Israel as a major diplomatic failure is cause for celebration among the Palestinian Authority.
The surprise China-brokered rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Iran presumably hobbles Israel’s efforts to normalize relations with the Arab world, while bolstering the Jewish state’s primary regional foe and the chief backer of Palestinian terror groups like Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
“The Palestinian Presidency appreciates the Chinese role that contributed to reaching the agreement,” read a statement released by the Palestinian Authority. “We hope that the agreement will lead to stability and enhance the positive atmosphere in the region.”
For Israel and the West, any deal that aids the ambitions of the ayatollahs in Tehran can only lead to instability and more belligerence in the Middle East.
Members of the PLO Executive Committee, the power behind the Palestinian Authority, hailed the agreement as a blow to Israel’s new government and a clear signal that it was time for the Palestinians to stop looking to Washington as an honest and unbiased peace broker.
In other words, the Palestinians have already aligned with Iran, and want to now align further with the global axis led by Russia and China, which is increasingly in conflict with the West.
