Hamza Yusuf supports his paymaster's deal with Israel! Will the white Sufi be cancelled? Or is it only brown/black Salafis who are?

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf has supported the recent UAE-Israel peace deal that has widely been denounced as a betrayal of the Palestinian cause.

The American theologian and president of the California-based Zaytuna Institute endorsed a statement by his teacher Abdullah bin Bayyah supporting the controversial Emirati move.

Bin Bayyah is the President of the UAE-funded Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies.

The Arabic statement praised the “wisdom” of de facto UAE leader Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan and his “pursuit of a just and permanent peace in the Middle East region, and expressed the wish that this initiative would pave the way to peace and the promotion of stability in the region and the world.

The statement also praised the efforts of the United Arab Emirates to stop the extension of Israeli sovereignty over Palestinian lands.

Abdullah bin Bayyah’s statement was also supported by a number of prominent Muslim figures such as Dr Shawqi Allam, the Mufti of Egypt; Sheikh Ahmed Hillel, Imam of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan; Aisha Al-Adawiya, President of Al-Karamah Association in America; and Sheikh Mustafa Ceric, the former Mufti of Bosnia.

Over the past few years Hamza Yusuf has been heavily criticised by Muslims for giving credibility to the United Arab Emirates which has a questionable human rights record and is prosecuting a brutal war against Yemen.

In 2018 he described the UAE as a country that champions civil society and is “committed to tolerance” in remarks on the sidelines of the Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies in Abu Dhabi.

The forum is bankrolled by the UAE and critics have denounced it as a PR initiative to boost the the country’s image abroad and deflect criticism by human rights groups.

The Palestinians have denounced the UAE-Israel accord with President Mahmoud Abbas saying the deal was a “betrayal of Jerusalem, Al-Aqsa and the Palestinian cause.” Meanwhile, Hamas said the agreement encourages the occupation [by Israel] to continue its denial of the rights of our Palestinian people, and even to continue its crimes against our people.

Other prominent Muslim nations to denounce the accord include Iran and Turkey.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani decried the deal as a “huge mistake.” “The Emirate rulers think that if they approach America and the Zionist regime, their security will improve and their economy will grow,” Rouhani said. “But this is totally wrong.”

And Turkey said history will not forget and never forgive the “hypocritical behaviour” of the United Arab Emirates in agreeing to a deal with Israel to normalise relations.

On the other hand, Muslim nations and organisations (such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the Arab League) allied with Saudi Arabia either did not comment on the deal or supported it.

Jordan said that the UAE-Israel deal could push forward stalled peace negotiations if it succeeds in prodding Israel to accept a Palestinian state on land that Israel had occupied in the 1967 Arab-Israeli War.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, a close ally of the UAE, welcomed the agreement. “I followed with interest and appreciation the joint statement between the United States, United Arab Emirates and Israel to halt the Israeli annexation of Palestinian lands and taking steps to bring peace in the Middle East,” el-Sisi said on Twitter.

The Gulf state of Bahrain welcomed the accord between the UAE and Israel, state news agency BNA said. Bahrain also praised the United States for its efforts towards securing the deal.

And Oman said it backed the normalisation of ties between the neighbouring United Arab Emirates and Israel, and hoped the move would help achieve a lasting Middle East peace.
 
Well you have 2 choices carry on doing the same thing over and over again - definition of insanity - support the palestinian cause...
Or support israel and then hold them responsible for the palestinians.
What else do you do?
 
Palestinians need to take the L and make a deal for whatever land they can get while Trump is president, Biden and Coonmala will let Israel glass Palestine without a second thought and will never try to encourage a deal
 
Sheikh Hamza Yusuf is a realist. He has no time for empty gestures and slogans. As a result, he isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Its time for wisdom and UAE did the right move, Israel is a reality we must accept.
 
This Arab country has been wreaking havoc in the middle east lately, any war/famine/corruption in the region, you will find them standing either behind it or very close to it. So I cannot understand why any Shiekh would support these criminals after all of that. Yet, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf has praised them before and now he stood behind their betrayal. Allahu Al Mostcaan.

The prophet signed an uneven and unfair political deal with Quraysh when they were his worst enemies. A lot of good came from that deal. The palestinians should do the same.

wth. you said all this against my position on China yet you come here saying pro-Israel stuff?
 
Only Allah knows. No one could anticipate all the khayr that came from the Treaty of Hudaibiya
Bruh stop comparing two things that are completely different. That treaty was to temporarily halt non Muslim raids on Muslims. It was strategic treaty for Muslims so they could buy time and grow in strength. I don’t see how this is anything like that.

You already know the outcome. The Jews will be dislodged from the Middle East on the Final days. Meantime they are here to stay . The Palestinians can settle if they have even land left. The Jews intend to control all of Palestine
