Expert on Middle East: “Arabs consider hostage deal as ‘hudna,’ Israel’s surrender’
Dr. Edy Cohen, expert in Middle Eastern affairs: “Arab media and social networks consider the hostage deal as a ‘hudna,’ proving Israel’s surrender’
By Shimon Cohen

Israel National News – Arutz Sheva spoke to Dr. Edy Cohen, expert in Middle Eastern affairs, on the way deals for the release of hostages are perceived in the Arab media and on the Arab street. Dr. Cohen believes that to the Arab world the hostage deal is nothing more than proof of Israel's surrender to Hamas.

For them it is a ‘hudna,’ meaning a long-term ceasefire known from Islamic history, when Prophet Muhammad made a ‘hudna’ with his enemies and signed this contract for ten years. Arab media and social networks state that according to the ‘hudna’ Israel has lost and Hamas has won – proof of this is the fact is that we were forced to release imprisoned terrorists and we have submitted to Hamas dictates regarding the drones that we were not allowed to operate during certain hours. All these bring them to the conclusion that Hamas has been victorious," says Dr. Cohen.
