Suha Arafat, wife of the late Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, apologized on Friday to the United Arab Emirates after some protesters in Palestine offended the Gulf country and its leaders following the signing of a deal normalizing relations with Israel.

She also wrote that “the difference in opinion does not spoil the friendliness of the case” in the caption she included with a photo of her late husband pictured with the late UAE ruler Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nayan.
Arafat also urged people to “read the history” to learn more about how the UAE has previously and continues to support the Palestinian people and the cause.
She continued: “I apologize to the people and the leadership of the UAE for any harm done by any Palestinian to the generous and kind people, who have always welcomed us. I apologize to the mother of the Emirates, Her Highness Sheikha Fatima bint Mubarak, for the irresponsible behavior.”
