(Bloomberg) - Jews of UAE Tweet Prayer for Government as Ties with Israel Warm

 

https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1267504019116826630/pu/vid/1280x720/MKk0Sb7mOfU9Og5T.mp4?tag=10

 

They once lived in the shadows of the United Arab Emirates. Today, emboldened by improved relations between Israel and their current home, the Jews of the UAE are openly praying for the welfare of the Emirati government and its armed forces.

A video clip on the “Official Twitter Account of the Jewish Community of the UAE” begins with a desert scene and the figure of a man clad in the traditional long white robe worn by Emiratis, holding a large UAE flag. It cuts to a room set up as a synagogue, with a man in a Jewish prayer shawl shot from behind.

“May He who gives salvation to kings and dominion to princes, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, who delivers his servant David from the evil sword, who makes a way in the sea and a path through the mighty waters, bless and protect, guard and help, exalt, magnify and uplift the President of the UAE His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan,” the Hebrew-language prayer begins, chanted in Middle Eastern cantillation.

The blessing goes on to include the ruler of Dubai, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and “all the rulers of the other Emirates and their crown princes.”

The video, which shows images of Sheikh Khalifa and Sheikh Mohammed, as well as various UAE sites, has subtitles in both Arabic and English, and includes a prayer that the government “deal kindly with us, the House of Jacob, and all the people of this land.”

 

While it is customary for Jewish communities to pray for the welfare of the leaders of the government of the country in which they live, the Jewish community in the UAE had until recent years shunned publicity. Since its Twitter account was opened last month, it has tweeted several times, including a video coinciding with the Muslim holiday Eid al-Fitr announcing that kosher meat is now available in Dubai.

The UAE, like most Arab nations, doesn’t have diplomatic ties with Israel. Yet relations have warmed in recent years over a shared distrust of Iran, and in tandem, the Jewish community in the Emirates has taken a higher profile. The UAE, too, is being more open about the warming ties, and is building a synagogue in Abu Dhabi that is to be part of an interfaith complex including a mosque and a church. The Abrahamic Family House project is expected to be completed by 2022, according to a Gulf News report last year.

Last month, a rare flight from the UAE arrived in Israel carrying medical equipment to help Palestinians fight the coronavirus pandemic, though at the same time, the Gulf nation has hewed to longstanding Arab positions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The UAE minister of state for foreign affairs, Anwar Gargash, tweeted this week that “continued Israeli talk of annexing Palestinain lands most stop” because such a move would “constitute a rejection of the international & Arab consensus towards stability & peace.”

To go to JFK you can fly 12h direct, or fly 2h to AUH, connection time and then another 14h.

Israeli Airline Israir Seeks UAE Landing Permit
Sunday, August 16, 2020 07:01 PM
By Alisa Odenheimer

(Bloomberg) --Israir Airlines Ltd. has started the process of applying for a landing permit in the UAE, Chief Executive officer Uri Sirkis said on Sunday.
The two countries announced last week that they plan to normalize relations.

Dubai is a “very, very attractive” destination, since it is only 3 1/4 hours away, and it is likely to be very popular with Israelis, just as Turkey and Greece are, the CEO said in an interview with Kan, the Israeli public broadcaster.

While Israel has peace agreements with both Egypt and Jordan, Israeli airlines haven’t been permitted to fly to vacation spots such as Aqaba in Jordan or Sharm El-Sheikh in Egypt, he said, adding that he hopes that in the case of the UAE, the situation will be different. In addition, in order to get to the UAE, Israeli planes would have to fly over Saudi Arabia, which until now hasn’t granted Israeli airlines overflight permission for destinations such as India, he said.

Full press release:

PM Netanyahu's Remarks Following the Tour of BGI Airport with Transportation Minister Miri Regev

(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Prime Minister Netanyahu, today (Monday, 17 August 2020), following the tour of Ben-Gurion International Airport with Transportation Minister Miri Regev:

“I have just had a quick tour of the airport ahead of the opening of flights – security procedures and health procedures. Of course, this is an experimental pilot and is related to morbidity.

At the same time, I would like to inform you that we are now working on allowing direct flights between Tel Aviv and Dubai and Abu Dhabi, over Saudi Arabia. It is a very short flight, around three hours, like a flight to Rome but it will change Israeli air travel and the Israeli economy with a great wave of tourism in both directions, with investments of great magnitude.

The Emiratis are very interested in massive investments in Israel in technology, in importing inexpensive products. There is a free trade zone there, one of the largest and most efficient in the world. This will be very beneficial to the Israeli consumer. Simply put, it is an injection of energy in the Israeli economy that will benefit each citizen.

I estimate that we will reach an agreement that will genuinely allow direct flights between Tel Aviv and Dubai. This will open the entire Israeli tourism and air travel market, and also investments, on a magnitude the likes of which we have not seen.

There are also blessings in the time of corona. We will continue to work for the citizens of Israel and businesses in Israel.”

In response to journalists’ questions, Prime Minister Netanyahu said:

“ We are working with maximum energy and we have already begun to work on opening an air route over Saudi Arabia, which will simply shorten flights between Israel and the UAE, and will, in effect, open up the east and all of the connecting routes for Israeli air travel, it is a major revolution. This is a revolution for tourism to and from Israel, and it changes everything. To the best of my knowledge, Israir has already submitted an official request.”

This will absolutely not be something revolutionary for the economy. He can easily juice the economy by getting rid of import taxes, not to mention lowering other taxes.

Wow!

Saudi Arabia allows all flights between Israel and the United Arab emirates to fly over Saudi airspace — Prime Minister Netanyahu just announced the big news in a video. He thanked Jared Kushner and UAE crowned prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed.

Just in terms of process, Israir already reached out to both Israel and UAE for slots, and I havent heard of ethiad asking for slots yet, but I might have missed it.

The tiny Gulf kingdom of Bahrain indicated Thursday it would open its air space to Israeli planes flying to the UAE, potentially shortening flights to Dubai by several minutes.

In an announcement carried by its state news agency, Bahrain’s Transportation Ministry said it would allow all flights to the UAE to cross its airspace.

A message written by Uri Sirkis (Israir CEO) forwarded to me by a reliable source.

חברים.

מבקש להאיר מספר נקודות.

התרגשות גדולה.
כולם הולכים לטוס לשם.
יעד נפלא

אבל....

בניגוד למה שפורסם כמות התדירויות בהסכם התעופה מאפשרת ביצוע של 28 תדירויות לכל צד ולכל עיר. קרי. לחברות שבסיסן באמירויות ניתו לבצע 28 טיסות שבועיות מדובאי ועוד 28 טיסות שבועיות מאבו דאבי. ובסהכ 56 טיסות בשבוע.
בצד הישראלי מדובר על 56 טיסות נוספות.
פוטנציאל המושבים השנתי עומד על מעל 2 מליון נוסעים בשנה.

זוהי בשורה צרכנית ללקוח, הסופי. עבור החברות הישראליות מדובר ברמת תחרות עזה ובלתי מוכרת.

חברות ברמת שירות גבוהה, ציוד חדיש ומקורות מימון בלתי מוגבלים.

קיבולת זאת תשפיע על רמת המחירים בטיסות מזרחה ואף מערבה שכן היא תכה במעמד המסורתי של טורקיש אירופלוט וכו.

התעבורה בפיקוח ניקוסיה תהיה צפופה יותר, ותגדיל הוצאות התפעול של היוצאים מנתבג.

אילת תספוג מכה אנושה, כנסים, פרטים יעדיפו את דובאי על אילת. מזג האוויר בחורף כבר לא יהיה חם רק באילת.

אירוע היסטורי.
מרגישים חשמל באוויר.
אין צורך בויזות.

אבל בואו נזכור השפעות הרוחב של האירוע לא החלו וסופו מי ישורנו....
