President Donald Trump has issued a joint statement by the United States, Israel and Bahrain announcing Tel Aviv and Manama’s intention to establish full diplomatic relations.

“Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days!” Trump wrote in a tweet accompanying the statement.

As per the statement, Israel and Bahrain agreed to normalize ties following a telephone conversation between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa bin Salman al-Khalifa and Donald Trump.

“King Hamad and Prime Minister Netanyahu express their deep appreciation to President Trump for his dedication to peace in the region, his focus on shared challenges, and the pragmetic and unique approach he has taken to bringing their nations together,” the statement adds.

A Bahraini delegation is expected to join Israeli and UAE officials in Washington, DC on Tuesday for the formal signing of normalization treaties between Tel Aviv and Abu Dhabi, and Tel Aviv and Manama.

Netanyahu Confirms Deal

Netanyahu confirmed that Israel would be signing the treaty later Friday, saying the agreement opens a “new era of peace” in relations.

“For many long years, we invested and peace, and now peace will invest in us, will bring about truly major investments in Israel’s economy – and that is very important,” Netanyahu said.

The Bahrain News Agency said in a statement that King Hamad had ‘reiterated’ to Trump and Netanyahu the need to reach ‘a fair and lasting peace’ between Israel and Palestine on the basis of a two-state solution.

The Palestinian Authority and Hamas have condemned the agreement, with the former calling it a “betrayal” and the latter describing it as another “treacherous stab” against the Palestinian cause.

The UAE’s foreign ministry offered its congratulations to both Israel and Bahrain for the agreement, with foreign ministry spokeswoman Hend Al Otaiba tweeting that the “significant and historic achievement” will “contribute enormously to the stability and prosperity of the region.”

Bahrain succumbed to the enemies of humanity when it adopted Islam : Islam slaughtered 750-850 millions humans in its grim history, even the Black Death hasn’t killed as much : it’s the equivalent of the world’s population in 1800-1850. In India alone, Islam killed 270 millions. The Hindu genocide is the biggest ever!

The EU sees the Caliphates differently. Mohammadan’s deny facts when they claim the West has attacked the House of Islam first. The first Caliphate dynasty already attacked and conquered Spain, the big Mediterranean Islands and was only stopped at the Battle on the Street of the Martyrs in 732 by the Franc army. The last Caliphate of the Ottomans was stopped twice before Vienna by the successors of East Franconian kings and their troops in 1529 and 1683. In both cases the Mohammedan raiding tactics were seen by the Europeans as big breaches of the rules how to conduct war… Read more »

IMHO It has to do with gas deals not humanity. And it is interesting info. The Gas Management Group in the Mediterranean with Egypt, Jordan, Cyprus, Italy, Greece, Israel and Palestine is politically connected with UAE and the Beni Saud. UAE has sent 6 F 16 to Crete. This group wants to build the EastMed to Europe if gas price is high enough. They want to supply the EU, the biggest gas markt in the world. In Libya they support the Libyan parliament, that has been recognised by the UN and its LNA forces. The parliament chose Haftar to command… Read more »

The Mohammedans have forgotten that they took more private Jewish lands than the Palestinians have and have had in Israel and cis Jordan areas. After 1948 their persecution drove out the Arab Jews from the Mohammedan countries. Most of them went to Israel, and the not the Ashkensasi Jews are now the majority in Israel.

So the Arab countries have the moral obligation to host the Palestinians and to replace any land that Israel needs to host the Arab Jews.
