The leaders of UAE are descendants of those Arabs who conspired with the British in defeating Ottomans in WW1 which lead to British occupation of Palestine. Jews who held 3% of the land in 1933 captured 80% of Palestine after carrying out ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in 1948.
Another historical fact is about the Hashemite family who fought alongside the British in WW1 against the Ottomans. In reward for their services to the crown, the Hashemites had been granted the kingdoms of Iraq and Jordan that the Mandate system had created.

After WW2, Abdullah, scion of the Hashemite royal family colluded with Ben Gurion over how to divide post-mandatory Palestine. Abdullah promised not to join any all-Arab military operations against the Jewish state. The Jewish community was ‘willing’ to give up West Bank....
..even though it included some biblical Jewish sites, such as the city of Hebron (al-Khalil).

Jordan had the strongest army among the Arabs so this collusion was a significant victory for Ben Gurion in carrying out the ethnic cleansing of Palestine.
In contrast, Fakhreddin Pasha, the defender of Medina and an Ottoman General, fought till the end against the British.
Important thread on the creation of Israel. These facts must not be forgotten.
