A Puerto Rican military man was key in the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates

Washington D. C. – Puerto Rican Major General Miguel Correa, now an advisor to the National Security Council of the White House, was a key piece in the signing of the peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the newspaper revealed today The Wall Street Journal.

Correa was a military attache at the US embassy in Abu Dhabi when he coordinated a US emergency military operation in Yemen in 2017 to rescue soldiers from that country, a Middle Eastern monarchy.

One of the rescued soldiers – after crashing, by accident or because of the fire of Al Qaeda militants – turned out to be a member of the UAE royalty, nephew and godson of the crown prince and ruler of that country, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed al Nahyan , known as MBZ.

“That general is part of my family”, UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al Nahyan told President Donald Trump before signing the peace agreement with Israel – which Bahrain joined – in a ceremony that took place at the White House last year. September 15.

The UAE foreign minister is the younger brother of the crown prince and the uncle of the wounded royal soldier, 27-year-old Sheikh Zayed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan.

The rescue mission – which took place in a secret way – was carried out on August 11, 2017, after a UAE helicopter crashed in Yemen.

Three soldiers were killed and seven wounded, including the crown prince’s nephew.

The seven wounded UAE soldiers were first taken to the US ship USS Bataan, where the medical team used 54 out of 66 units of blood, making it the largest “mobile blood bank” the US Navy has used since WWII. World War, according to Captain Bill Urban, spokesman for the United States Central Command.

One of the seven injured soldiers rescued also died while being transported by helicopter to the ship.

At the request of UAE leaders, the six survivors – including the crown prince’s nephew – were later treated at the US Army hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, which specializes in treating soldiers wounded in combat.

The rescue operation made General Correa something of a hero among the rulers of the UAE, the Arabian peninsula that has 6% of the world’s oil reserves.

Already in the White House, Major General Correa played a notable role, behind the public stage, in sealing the peace agreement between Israel and the UAE, because of the trust that the royal family has in him. “This would not have happened without him,” Minister Abdullah bin Zayed al Nahyan said.

Yousef al Otaiba, UAE ambassador in Washington and who played a key role in the peace process, said that the success of the negotiations was anchored in the trust his government has in General Correa and the White House team, mediators. between your country and Israel.

At the end of last July, it was General Correa who traveled to Abu Dhabi in a personal meeting to assure Prince Mohammed that the United States will guarantee that the agreements are fulfilled, US officials said.

Before that meeting, the prince invited his godson, in a wheelchair, to meet General Correa. Correa was also the one who gave the name of “Abraham’s Accords” to the peace treaty, with the aim of emphasizing that Islam, Christianity and Judaism are religious branches of the prophet Abraham.

The general was assigned in March to the White House National Security Council, as director for Middle East affairs, after leaving Abu Dhabi and undergoing an investigation by the Pentagon Inspector General on allegations that he did not keep his civilian bosses informed. on his relationships with UAE leaders.

AMMAN – Miko Peled, an Israeli human rights activist, said the agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to normalize their relationship was part of Israel’s strategy to garner as much support as possible in the Arab world. This was done to legitimize their crimes in Palestine.

“Israel’s strategy has always tried to shore up as much support as possible in the Arab world, one way or another, to legitimize its crimes in Palestine,” said Peled, who is also the author of “Injustice: The Story of the Holy Land Foundation Five”.

“So they can do it through economic means, through arms sales and security systems and of course a peace deal with Egypt, the largest Arab country, and then with Jordan,” he continued.

He said gradually what Israel wants to do is develop good relations with Arab countries, so that they can show that the Palestinians don’t want peace.

“The reality is, Palestinians are being killed, they are driven from their homes, they are living in an apartheid regime, the racism, the brutality, the violence they suffered at the hands of Israel and so is Israel going around trying to garner support in as many Arab countries as possible defend yourself, “he said.

“These Arab countries are slowly falling into this trap, some because they want access to America, some because they are happy enough to do business with Israel, that they don’t really care about Israel’s crimes against Palestine,” he continued.

Peled said this is a reality in these countries, where the regime finds it profitable for them to do business with Israel, to normalize Israel.

“And in large part, this is because this is a stepping stone to the United States. It gives them access to America, better access to buy guns and get guns from America,” he said.

EU countries against settlements in the West Bank: “Israel violates international law”

FIVE European countries (Italy, Germany, Great Britain, France and Spain) intervened with a political statement to criticize Israel’s decision to authorize the construction of new apartments in the Palestinian Territories. Spokespeople for the 5 countries’ foreign ministries wrote that “we are deeply concerned about the decision taken by the Israeli authorities to advance more than 4,900 settlement construction units in the occupied West Bank. The expansion of settlements violates international law and further undermines the viability of a two-state solution to bring a just and lasting peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “

For Italy, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Spain, this “is also a counterproductive move in light of the positive developments of the normalization agreements reached between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. We therefore call for an immediate halt to the construction of the settlements, as well as the evictions and demolitions of Palestinian structures in East Jerusalem and the West Bank ”.

The Israeli government approved another 2,700 housing units in settlements in the Palestinian Occupied Territories the day before yesterday, after deciding to legalize another 2,166 units that had already been built illegally, and thus received a retroactive green light.

Most of these homes are located in outlying areas of the West Bank, in territories that would probably not end up with Israel in a possible land swap in a peace agreement. Yesterday, the Israeli parliament ratified the “Abrahamic Agreements”, the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain.

The new green light for these quasi-residential units was welcomed with joy by the settlers who said they were “happy that the efforts have borne fruit: building in this area cannot be used as a bargaining chip in other issues or peace agreements”, wrote the Yesha Council which represents the more than 450,000 inhabitants of the settlements in the territories, surrounded by 2.7 million Palestinians.

“We ask for the complete green light for construction in Judea and Samaria (West Bank) in line with the development needs we have here”, added Yisrael Gantz, head of the Binyamin Regional Council, arguing that “building in Judea, Samaria and Binyamin must to be like everywhere in the country and not hindered by diplomatic restraints “.

According to the NGO “Peace Now”, over 12,000 housing units in the West Bank were approved in 2020, marking a record since the NGO began to take this into account in 2012. “While the legal annexation can be suspended , that in fact is clearly continuing “,
