Netanyahu denies report of Israeli crisis with UAE
The UAE reportedly said that it would not buy Israeli defense systems until it felt that Netanyahu can control his government.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Office denied a report by Channel 12 of a crisis in its relations with the United Arab Emirates due to the actions of Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich and National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir. “The news is without any basis, Israel and the UAE maintain fruitful political relations in all fields, including today,” the PMO stated. Channel 12 reported on Sunday night that the UAE plans to halt its purchase of Israeli defense systems to protest the action of Netanyahu’s new government.

Report: UAE halting purchase of Israeli weapons systems, PM's office: 'Baseless report'
The background to this decision is Ben-Gvir's visit to the Temple Mount, riots in the Arab town of Huwara, and remarks by Smotrich. PM's office: fake news.
Israel National News

A Channel 12 report claims that The United Arab Emirates announced its intentions to halt purchases of defense systems from Israel due to actions and remarks by Ministers Itamar Ben-Gvir and Bezalel Smotrich.

According to the report by Channel 12, the systems that were purchased by the UEA are considered significant. Most are sensitive and classified. The background to this decision, according to Israeli sources, is the government's conduct over the past month and a half, including Ben-Gvir's visit to the Temple Mount, riots in the Arab town of Huwara, and remarks by Smotrich regarding "erasing Huwara."

What brought all this realignment?
It's not just Ben Gvir and Smotrich, it's also the riots and unrest on the Left in Israel against the judicial reforms that are badly needed. Their Supreme Court is taking more and more power on itself, including the right to dissolve the govt if the election doesn't go the way they want. The Supreme Court is Leftist, and appoints it's own members.

Netanyahu was elected.

This is why all the noise and nonsense.

But it's making the UAE nervous, along with the Saudi's. I'm surprised Bahrain hasn't chimed in. The Abraham Accords are in trouble because the UAE, the Saudis (who aren't officially on the AA) and Bahrain were counting on Israel to protect them from Iran.

Because America since the Biden election is showing itself weak and incapable, especially in the Middle East with Iran these countries were looking for help from Israel.

But America is pulling support away from Israel and since the election of Netanyahu the Israeli left are behaving like entitled brats and causing trouble-- Israel is not looking good.

That is why Saudis signed an agreement with Iran under China's guidance and why their smaller satellites (UAE, Bahrain and the other mini states on the edges of Saudi Arabia) are looking like pulling away from Israel.
