On November 27, 2015, Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that Israel is set to open its first diplomatic mission in Abu Dhabi.
“Israel will inaugurate for the first time an official – and visible – diplomatic mission in Abu Dhabi, capital city of United Arab Emirate within next few weeks,” Barak Ravid wrote.
The paper quoted Dore Gold, director Israel foreign ministry who visited Abu Dhabi on November 26, to attend Abu Dhabi-based International Renewable Energy Association (IRENA). Dore Gold also said that the Israeli mission would be located inside IRENA building and would be accredited not to the UAE government.
Dore Gold, former Israeli ambassador at United Nations, has long been Netanyahu’s adviser on foreign affairs. Gold works under deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely, the most Arab-hating Jewish politician. Netanyahu holds himself the portfolio of ‘foreign minister’. In 2009, Gore paid a fine of 200,000 shekels ($52,500) over tax evasion.
Ms Hotovely has called for annexation of the West Bank, throwing native Palestinians out of Holy Land and putting Israeli flag on top of Al-Aqsa Mosque. On Monday, she was served with ‘citizen’s arrest’ warrant in Palo Alto, California. Watch video below.
Typically, a diplomat at embassy in Abu Dhabi represents the member country at IRENA, but thanks to western powers, a back-door has been installed at this UN forum for Israel in order to boost its ‘divide and rule’ policy in the region.
UAE is a political federation of seven oil-gas rich Sheikhdoms ruled by Arab dynasties created by ex-British colonists.
The fabulous IRENA headquarter in Abu Dhabi was opened in April 2011. Abu Dhabi promised an annual gift of $77 million to snatch this honor from Germany, Austria and Denmark. Abu Dhabi had hired services of former British prime minister Tony Blair, a pro-Israel war criminal, to gain this honor.
IRENA was created by United Nations to provide advice on renewable energy policy, capacity building, and technology transfer to governments worldwide. Housing the agency has boosted Abu Dhabi’s economy with an increased flow of diplomats and energy leaders. It has also enabled the Sheikhdom to market itself as an environmentally conscious supporter of renewable energy even though it’s powered entirely by oil and natural gas. Abu Dhabi plans to rely on renewable energy sources for 5-7 percent of its electricity by 2020.
In 2012, a South Korean consortium began construction of four commercial nuclear plants at Barakah (Abu Dhabi) at the cost of $20 billion. The first plant is expected to start operating in 2017 (here).
Kenya-born Adnan Z. Amin heads IRENA. Dore Gold held a private meeting with Amin on Thursday at IRENA headquarters.
