            UAE, Bahrain and Israel sign historic 'peace deal’

            The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have signed a historic deal with Israel, becoming the first Gulf states to formally normalise relations, in a move which dramatically re-shapes political dynamics in the region.

            US President Donald Trump hosted the ceremony at the White House on Tuesday, capping several fraught few weeks since UAE and the Bahrain first agreed to forge diplomatic relations with Israel despite no formal resolution to the 70-year-old Israel Palestinian conflict.

            At the US-brokered event with some 700 attendees, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu signed the “Abraham Accords” alongside Emirati Foreign Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Bahraini Foreign Minister Abdullatif Al Zayani.

            Mr Trump, who is up for re-election in November, congratulated the three countries on this “outstanding achievement” saying the moment marks “the dawn of a new Middle East”.

            “The Abraham accords… will serve as a foundation for a comprehension peace across the entire region something that no one thought was possible,” he said.

            “[It] also open the doors for Muslims to visit the historic site in Israel,” he said referencing the Al-Aqsa mosques in Jerusalem.

            He said there are other countries which will “very very soon” follow suit, echoing previous comments that “five or six” other nations were considering signing deals with Israel.

            Calling the event “remarkable”, Mr Netanyahu offered his “profound gratitude” to Mr Trump for brokering deal. He said he was also thankful to the UAE and Bahrain “for working with the US and Israel to expand the circle of peace”.

            He said these partnerships could end the Arab-Israeli conflict for good, and help the region economically.


            General Keane credits Trump's statement at a prior meeting that he "stands with you" (50 some Arab and Jewish leaders) against Iran and Islamic extremism....

                Egypt would be the big prize - if they agreed to normalized relations WITHOUT extorting US taxpayers to do so, every year.

                  It won’t change anything, is what I hear.

                    I'm also hesitatingly optimistic about this. I hope it works out well in the long term.

                      Can anyone explain what the big deal is? It's not like Israel and the UAE were at war.

                        Please tell me this is an act and that you're really not this astoundingly ignorant.

                          Ask why the Palestinians are so upset and you will have your answer.

                          Palestinian militants fire rockets at Israel as historic peace agreement is signed at White House

                          A rocket attack launched by Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip wounded two people in Israel Tuesday as the Middle East's lone Jewish state signed an agreement to normalize relations with two of its Arab neighbors at the White House. The attack was apparently coordinated to coincide with the signing of the agreement.

                            My main concern is that this really pushes Iran to do something --- get with the program, or prove they're not going to.

                              And Nutsy Pelosi dismisses this as a "distraction".
