Ben Caspit speaks this week with former National Security Adviser Maj. Gen. (ret.) Giora Eilad, who provides behind-the-scenes details on the historic agreement signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. In Eiland's view, by signing an agreement with Israel, the United Arab Emirates turned its back on the 2002 Arab Initiative, which conditions advancement of ties with Israel on advancing on the Palestinian file. He also claims the UAE might be expecting now to purchase sophisticated, Israeli-made weapons.
