Historical Moment normalization agreements between Israel United and Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed at the White House


The oreign minister of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain and Prime Minister of Israel on Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday signed historical peace agreements at the White House together with President Trump as the United States brokered in this. The document dubbed Abraham Accords marks the turn of the tide in the long and complicated relations between the two Arab countries and Israel.

President Trump spoke before the signing calling this moment “the dawn of a new Middle East.”

"Together these agreements will serve as the foundation for a comprehensive peace across the entire region, something which nobody thought was possible, certainly not in this day and age," Trump said. "These agreements prove that the nations of the region are breaking free from failed approaches of the past. Today's signing sets history on a new course and there will be other countries very soon that will follow these great leaders."

But what stands behind this historical vibe about the normalization?

One of the conditions on which the UAE signed the agreement was the opportunity to acquire the fighter jet F-35 from the United States. Alternatively, both Emirates and Bahrain will be able to purchase high-tech military technologies, including the Iron Dome missile defense system. All this will make the Arab Emirates the most militarily advanced country in the region except Israel itself.

After the agreements are signed, Israel will now have to suspend their intentions to annex parts of the West Bank. UAE made it clear that this was one of its key premise to sign the normalization. However, it’s still unclear for how long Israel must suspend their plans. The foreign minister of the UAE Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed also pointed out that the normalization will make it “a better future for generations to come” since after signing Israel will give up its idea of annexing Palestinian territories.   

And of course, Abraham Accords will now affect economic relationships of the four countries, as well as health, tourism and more.

For the United States, Trump sees the opportunity to shift the focus in the Middle East from Iran, the most conjectural state in the region to another side of the Gulf Sunni by pushing Israel closer to the Arab states. And for trump personally, this is a dipomatical victory ahead of the November elections.

Anyway, the question remains, will Jews and Arabs now live in peace forevermore.
