UAE Condemns “Heinous” Killing Of Iran Scientist In Rare Break From Israel-Gulf Axis

Originally appeared at ZeroHedge

Last Friday’s assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh is putting immense strain on the newly ‘normalized’ ties between the United Arab Emirates and Israel.

The UAE late on Sunday issued a statement strongly denouncing the attack that it called a “crime” that could destabilize the region. This after Tehran has vowed to retaliate, yet without giving details of what form this might take.

The UAE “condemns the heinous assassination of Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, which could further fuel conflict in the region,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said, as cited in Bloomberg.

“The state of instability our region is currently going through, and the security challenges it faces, drive us all to work towards averting acts that could lead to escalation and eventually threaten the stability of the entire region,” it added.

Signed on September 15, the ‘Abraham Accords’ opened up formal diplomatic relations and economic dealings between Israel and the tiny oil-rich Gulf country for the first time in history.

Bahrain was also involved, and Sudan is said to be the next Arab League member to normalize ties, with the State Department now urging Saudi Arabia to follow.

As Bloomberg notes of the significance of the UAE condemning this latest attack:

“The denunciation late Sunday was significant both because of the historically strained relations between Sunni Gulf Arab states and Shiite Iran, and the fact that Tehran has blamed the attack on Israel, which recently signed a normalization deal with the UAE.”

Jordan is also the latest regional voice to condemn the brazen assassination which occurred east of Tehran last week.

Some current and former diplomats in the West have also condemned the killing, widely suspected to have Israeli or even US intelligence involvement, as it sets a precedented that could open tit-for-tat illegal assassinations as a modus operandi for score settling among rival powers in the region.

UAE is a western masters created glass shard on shifting sands populated by overpaid rip off “expats” and Asian slave labor and a few thousand papered Bedouins. They fully understand that UAE will turn into silica if there is a regional war. Iran can shut the whole place down by a single missile at Dubai airport and then watch the “expat” exodus.

Potato Man

Nor UAE or Jordan really have any power and they are British -> US dogs for long time.
It is nothing but BS from both of them, the only fukers that plan this assassinations were US/Zion State/Wahhabi State KSA and MEK terrorists group….also Azer it seems.

KSA have finger up UAE ass that’s why they taking shit on KSA+Zion and US didn’t told them about this…but remember UAE didn’t join Zion cult for nothing.

UAE is a western outpost created by the British in 1971 to destabilize the region and control Persian Gulf oil resources. Now they are also a Zionist base and will be a major target in any war, so this condemnation is primarily for self-preservation.

The UAE and Saudis are the worst racist ignorant trash in the region, their abuse of Indians and Asians in general is worse than the Apartheid regime and at par with Zionist crimes against Palestinians. Iran should flatten the slave trading pimps.


Why not India … ya f/kn big mouth … they’re abusing your men and women … hello?

Free man

The UAE is the most successful Muslim country in the world.
These guys know how to invest their oil profits wisely. Like Azerbaijan.
A rare commodity nowadays.


AND … of ALL the Arabs … they chose to ally with the ‘JEWS’ …. eh?

BTW …. Azerbaijan has close ties with Israel as well ….

Stay Safe

Free man

Someone here doesn’t understand the Arab mentality. They will say whatever you want to hear and do the opposite.


Victory over the vile Mullah Police State … that’s what they feel

Free man

Ali joon, what are you waiting for?
For a long time now, the Iranians themselves don’t believed the empty threats of the regime.
You have a cowardly and impotent regime, you should start accepting that.

Icarus Tanović

This is just so hypocritical that it is ridiculous. They are affraid, and it is only rhetoric bs, and talk to talk. Personally, and from experience don’t trust Wahhabi Satanistic UAE regime.
So, back the fuck off.
