Ben-Gvir welcomed in UAE embassy on National Day
Itamar Ben-Gvir and other Israeli figures were invited to join the National Day reception at the UAE embassy in "Tel Aviv" amid the normalization debacle at the Qatar FIFA World Cup.
Israeli Occupation Police Minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir, best known for calling to kill Palestinians, has been invited to join the United Arab Emirates (UAE) reception in "Tel Aviv" in celebration of National Day.
According to Israeli media, UAE ambassador to "Israel," Mohamed Al Khaja, invited ben Gvir alongside other Israeli lawmakers, ministers, and public figures.
The invite shocked Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu, as previously, the UAE had warned that ben Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich, leader of the Religious party, could jeopardize the normalization between "Israel" and the UAE.
Israeli reporters faking identity at World Cup to avoid rejection
This comes at a time when in parallel, the Arab people in Qatar have noted their rejection of all normalization with "Israel," as the 2022 FIFA world cup unfolds.
An Israeli source reported on November 26 that "the World Cup in Qatar brought along a good deal of conflicts and tense interactions."
The report complained that "when the World Cup is organized for the first time in an Islamic country, this has got to come with issues, especially for Israeli fans, and particularly for Israeli media reporters who are sent to cover the event."
The report further stated that "a significant number of journalists reported the occurrence of unpleasant events since the beginning of the tournament."
Despite warnings Netanyahu chose Ben Gvir
On November 25th, the Likud party, led by Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu, announced that it signed its first coalition agreement with Ben-Gvir.
This agreement grants Knesset Member Itamar Ben-Gvir the occupation's Police Minister and a seat in the occupation's security cabinet.
According to Israeli media, "The agreement guarantees that the Jewish Power party will also obtain the Ministry of 'Development' of Al-Naqab and Al-Khalil. According to the Likud statement, it was agreed to expand the powers and fields of the ministry's work, and it will be called the Ministry of Development of Al-Naqab and Al-Khalil and 'National' Strength."
