Jared Kushner, the trump administration official who participated in the negotiations of the agreement, told CBS News that the deal would make the Middle East more peaceful and hopeful, meaning fewer U.S. troops would have to be deployed in the region.  Foreign Affairs Minister Mike Pompeo said the agreement was an important step toward stabilizing the region and was good for the world.  This criticism is not unwarranted. Israel has shown little interest in negotiations with the Palestinians, as it has strengthened its control over the West Bank and, with Egypt, has a narrow barrier around the Gaza Strip. The Trump administration has moved the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, ended or significantly reduced aid to the Palestinians, and presented a peace plan that Palestinians see as extremely unfair to their national aspirations and rights. At the same time, the leaders of Ramallah see the gradual normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates as a sign that Abu Dhabi has betrayed the Palestinian cause. For their part, the Emiratis do not want to subordinate their national interests to ineffective and corrupt Palestinian leaders. All this indicates that in the short term, any expectation of further negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority is misplaced. Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah called the agreement a betrayal of Islam, Arabism, Jerusalem and the Palestinians. He accused the United Arab Emirates of doing Trump a favor in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election.
 Lebanese President Michel Aoun, whose Free Patriotic Movement party is an ally of Hezbollah, said lebanon would be open to peace with Israel if their reciprocal problems were resolved and if the UAE had the right to normalize relations with Israel because they are a sovereign nation.  If Israel, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates play their cards correctly, their agreements could have a positive impact on Israeli-Palestinian relations and accelerate progress towards a two-state solution. Under the aegis of this agreement, Abu Dhabi and Manama could act as a moderating force for Palestinian politics and society and eliminate malicious actors such as Qatar, Iran and Turkey, which have fuelled Palestinian rejection, which fuels Gulf frustration and Israel`s reluctance to make concessions.
