Tomorrow is a hugely historic day! The Trump administration successfully mediated peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), and between Israel and Bahrain. They will meet at the White House tomorrow to sign those peace deals on the South Lawn.
These are the first peace agreements between Israel and Arab nations since the peace accords with Egypt and Jordan. Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli PM Menachem Begin met with President Jimmy Carter at Camp David on March 26, 1979 to sign the historic first Israeli-Arab treaty.
Then, President Clinton traveled to the Arava Valley of Israel to witness the signing of the peace accord between Israel and Jordan on October 26, 1994. Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin of Israel and Prime Minister Abdelsalam al-Majali of Jordan signed the treaty and the President of Israel, Ezer Weizman, shook hands with King Hussein.
There have been no treaties since then, until recently when both UAE and Bahrain agreed to normalization of ties with Israel. Expect other Muslim nations such as Oman, Morocco, and eventually Saudi Arabia to come to peace with Israel.
Tomorrow’s ceremony is sure to be filled with pomp and circumstance as they commemorate this grand achievement.
