DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Israel’s top diplomat to the United Arab Emirates has attended a ceremony in Dubai on the grounds of the Arabian Peninsula’s first permanent exhibition to commemorate the Holocaust. He also attended an event establishing a joint venture between an Israeli and Emirati company. The receptions this week are the clearest indication since a cease-fire in the Gaza Strip came into effect on Friday that the devastating 11-day war between Hamas and Israel and the violence that gripped Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque in the days preceding it have had no visible impact on the UAE’s commitment to establishing deep ties with the state of Israel.
