TWO GULF NATIONS RECOGNIZED ISRAEL AT THE WHITE HOUSE

President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday joined the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain’s foreign ministers to mark historic normalization agreements between Israel and the two Arab countries.

Trump hailed the occasion, claiming the signing of the Abraham Accords will “change the course of history,” and marks “the dawn of a new Middle East.”

Netanyahu described the day as a “pivot of history, a new dawn of peace.”

The last time such a ceremony took place in Washington was in 1994 when President Bill Clinton looked on as Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Jordanian King Hussein signed a declaration that paved the way for a peace deal months later.

For Trump, the timing was crucial. Less than two months before an election in which he trails in the polls, normalization agreements between Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain are major foreign policy achievements, even if the region was gradually moving towards these relationships regardless of who occupied the White House.
