This historic diplomatic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East region and is a testament to the bold diplomacy and vision of the three leaders and the courage of the United Arab Emirates and Israel to chart a new path that will unlock the great potential in the region. All three countries face many common challenges and will mutually benefit from today’s historic achievement.
Delegations from Israel and the United Arab Emirates will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements regarding investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, healthcare, culture, the environment, the establishment of reciprocal embassies, and other areas of mutual benefit. Opening direct ties between two of the Middle East’s most dynamic societies and advanced economies will transform the region by spurring economic growth, enhancing technological innovation, and forging closer people-to-people relations.
As a result of this diplomatic breakthrough and at the request of President Trump with the support of the United Arab Emirates, Israel will suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.

This normalization of relations and peaceful diplomacy will bring together two of America’s most reliable and capable regional partners. Israel and the United Arab Emirates will join with the United States to launch a Strategic Agenda for the Middle East to expand diplomatic, trade, and security cooperation. Along with the United States, Israel and the United Arab Emirates share a similar outlook regarding the threats and opportunities in the region, as well as a shared commitment to promoting stability through diplomatic engagement, increased economic integration, and closer security coordination. Today’s agreement will lead to better lives for the peoples of the United Arab Emirates, Israel, and the region.
The United States and Israel recall with gratitude the appearance of the United Arab Emirates at the White House reception held on January 28, 2020, at which President Trump presented his Vision for Peace, and express their appreciation for United Arab Emirates’ related supportive statements. The parties will continue their efforts in this regard to achieve a just, comprehensive and enduring resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As set forth in the Vision for Peace, all Muslims who come in peace may visit and pray at the Al Aqsa Mosque, and Jerusalem’s other holy sites should remain open for peaceful worshippers of all faiths.
Prime Minister Netanyahu and Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan express their deep appreciation to President Trump for his dedication to peace in the region and to the pragmatic and unique approach he has taken to achieve it.

HATERS GONNA HATE
As though it wasn’t bad enough that Palestinians live under daily annexation, now the repressive Yemeni murdering UAE is aligning with Netanyahu and Trump to throw them under the bus

By promising to briefly pause one particular crime, while continuing all other crimes at full speed, Israel extracted full normalization from the UAE regime.
Solidarity to all honorable Emiratis who are not represented by this vile embrace of occupation, apartheid and terror. https://t.co/7NiNac7uIq

We won’t be fooled by another Trump/Netanyahu deal.
We won't celebrate Netanyahu for not stealing land he already controls in exchange for a sweetheart business deal.
The heart of the issue has never been planned, formal annexation, but ongoing, devastating apartheid.

So. PDJT has picked up 9 more Jewish voters.
lmao, truth. 8 more than I guessed.
Elections are won on domestic policy. This as an individual achievement doesn’t move the needle.
But collectively all his achievements do. The message here is national security. The more he aligns the world in a peaceful way that takes care of its own problems, the less of a burden we have to shoulder and foot the bill for.
He promised to make the country more secure in a dangerous world and stop paying for the world’s defense. He is doing it.
Professor, respectfully, it’s EmirAtes, not EmirItes.
So the residents of the “territories” pay the price again, and will continue to live under the Defense Department’s rule, and subject to its whims, for the foreseeable future. And defenders of Israel everywhere will continue to argue with one hand tied behind their back, because even under Israeli law the “territories” are not part of Israel.
The Israeli residents of “the territories” live under the Defense Department’s rules. The Palestinian residents live under a Palestinian dictatorship.
Who the **** downvoted that? Some antisemites, I suppose.
Saudi Arabia will not be far behind.
Before Trump gets finished it will be Iran and the terrorists against everyone else. Isolation continues. Economic destruction continues.
Iran will collapse in the very near future.
IIRC wasn’t a member of the Saudi royal family castigating the Palestinians for their unending and expensive state of war against Israel? About 6 months ago and I think he was a finance guy in the kingdom. Perhaps I read it on here. I hope you are right about Saudis being next to make peace w Israel.
Such pronouncements are warnings about tactics, nothing more. Saudi Arabia is one of the largest conduits for Islamic terror financing in the world, much of it originating in Saudi Arabia itself. Did you think that the hundreds of millions of dollars collected each year by Hamas, Hezbollah, ISIS, the Muslim Brotherhood, and so on from direct donations and numerous Islamic charities is kept in proverbial mattresses?
I think if you’re fair you would acknowledge that the Saudi Crown Prince has a more modern vision for Saudi Arabia.
It is clear that the crown prince and President Trump have worked together to defeat Iran and the terror networks.
The terror networks are no longer funded so much by the Saudi Arabians. They are now largely funded by Iran.
Does the castration of the Bush gang have anything to do with that?
My opinion, yes. When Trump easily put down the last Bush the Saudi’s saw what was coming. From the first day of the Trump presidency the Saudi’s knew it was a new world in the ME and the Bush/Clinton/Bush/obama era was over. That was welcomed by many. Not all muslims are crazed and intent upon destruction.
President Trump’s first international trip was to Saudi Arabia.
Not next Jim, just in the near future. The satellites of the UAE, Oman and Bahrain, will be the next countries, IMO.
There are changes occurring in the ME. The UAE cannot take on Iran on it’s own, it needs the power of the US behind it, as do the Saudi’s. Trump is leveraging this. You don’t get something for nothing.
If Biden wins, it will all fall apart and Iran will be the winners short term. Iran will then have nukes within 5 years. SA will be forced to go nuclear, probably has an agreement with Pakistan already.
Trump has to win or hell will occur in the ME. Hell in the ME will destroy much of the western economy because of the need for ME oil.
The stakes are huge.
