Since Benjamin Netanyahu came to power almost 3,500 Palestinians have been killed, and the Abraham Accords won't be changing that anytime soon

The Abraham Accords have been signed but if the deaths of over 3,500 Palestinians in Netanyahu’s tenure are anything to go by, peace will not be extended to those under occupation.

The controversial Israeli-United Arab Emirates (and Bahrain) normalisation agreement has been pitched as a ‘peace’ treaty between the two countries, even though they have never been at war with each other.To top it off, the agreement has been framed as the Abraham Accords, to signify peace between the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Yet for Palestinians at least, it signifies something altogether different. During the reign of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Abrahamic peace has been elusive for Palestinians living under Israeli occupation.Since 2009, when Netanyahu became Prime Minister, almost 3,500 Palestinians, including women and children, have been killed as they strive for self-determination.

In 2019, Netanyahu, also known as Bibi, became Israel's longest-serving prime minister - a title previously held by David Ben-Gurion, the country's first PM.Netanyahu has overseen two out of the three largest assaults on Gaza, an isolated and blockaded territory bordering Egypt. According to

investigationsby independent Israeli and Palestinian human rights organisations, between 1,385 and 1,419 Palestinians were killed during Operation Cast Lead, a majority of them civilians, including at least 308 minors under the age of 18.Since taking power in 2009, there have been a further two operations in Gaza, one in 2012 and one in 2014.
