Abraham Accords: For UAE crown prince, "Israel is a model"

By signing the Abraham Accords with Israel, the United Arab Emirates sought to "strengthen" and reinforce the political and economic relationship that already existed for a quarter of a century. "For Mohammed bin Zayed, the heir prince of the UAE, Israel is a model," asserts Dr. Sébastien Boussois, Researcher, Policy Maker and Middle East Issues Specialist. "Israel is what (Crown Prince Zayed) always wanted to (emulate) for the UAE," adds Dr. Boussois, who regards the United Arab Emirates as "a small tiny country which wants to become a strong world power."
