The regime is “the Muslim world’s and Arab countries’ number one enemy,” spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh said on Monday night.
“No action towards normalization [of relations with the regime] can cause the lofty Palestinian cause to disappear,” he stressed.
Bennett met with the de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates and Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, earlier in the day, becoming the first ruler of the Israeli regime to visit the Persian Gulf state.
The visit came more than a year after the two sides agreed to establish formal relations under a United States-brokered deal.
Khatibzadeh warned against any measure that could reinforce the regime’s “destructive and seditious” presence in the West Asia region.
The peoples of the region would never forget the Israeli regime’s “sinister and vindictive” actions that are the “root cause” of the region’s problems, he said.
The visit came only a day after Israeli forces fatally shot a Palestinian youth in the head during clashes in the city of Nablus in the northwestern part of the occupied West Bank.
Khatibzadeh said Abu Dhabi had received the prime minister of the “illegitimate regime” despite Tel Aviv’s 70-year-long history of “acting as the source of instability, tension, and warmongering across the Arab and Muslim countries.”
Various Palestinian groups have likewise reacted strongly to the development, with the Gaza Strip-based Islamic Jihad resistance movement considering any act of normalization with the Tel Aviv regime to be tantamount to “betrayal to Palestine.”
