Alot of money can be made on this route if they get it done....it would hurt the Asian Airlines big time if they get it.

(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.”

Wow! @Dan how much time until we see direct flights??  ;D

Delegations from Israel and the United Arab Emirates will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements regarding investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications and other issues, the statement said.

Flights are a kind of a byproduct.
I wonder if the UAE airlines will operate like RJ or like MS.
