The Bahraini ruler Hamad bin Isa al Khalifa met with Rabbi Marc Schneier, the president of the Foundation of Ethnic Understanding, in the Bahraini capital of Manama, reported the Jerusalem Post.
During the meeting, the Bahraini king considered it is only a matter of time before the two states embark in direct relation. For his part, the New York-based rabbi designated the axis of resistance as the common enemy between Israel and Arab sheikhdoms; thus harbingers a peace accord between Tel Aviv and Arab capitals.
In a related context, a senior Israeli delegation has allegedly visited the Saudi capital of Riyadh to confer with Saudi leadership concerning regional developments.
Political experts believe GCC states gave Israel a much-needed legitimacy by labeling Lebanon’s Hezbollah a ‘terrorist organization’.
The Jordanian newspaper Raialyoum, regarded the recent GCC decision of labelling Hezbollah as ‘shameful’ and saw it as prelude to further persecution of other resistance factions in the Middle-East region.
