... and Israel is STILL for sale

Reader comment on item: Israel Is the Least-Stolen Land

Submitted by There is NO Santa Claus (United States), Jul 13, 2022 at 08:45

As I have said before: The Arabs no longer have to destroy Israel. They can BUY it.

I know this sounds a bit nefarious. I'll merely make note of the substantial investment the UAE has made since the signing of the Abraham Accords. With that in mind, perhaps it isn't such a bad thing that peace and normalization have brought about a new influx of investment in Israel. That said, there may be a potential downside to the new relationship building between Israel and the Gulf States.

Perhaps Dr. Pipes can offer his perspective on this.

Daniel Pipes replies:

Emiratis are investing in Israeli companies; so far as I know, they have not bought land in Israel, and land is the topic here, not companies. So, in that sense, Israel is not for sale.

Contrarily, external actors have purchased land on the West Bank, most notably Rawabi.
