Breaking news! Peace deal between Israel and UAE just announced!
A joint statement by Mr Trump, Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed Al Nahyan said they hoped the “historic breakthrough will advance peace in the Middle East”.
The agreement creates full diplomatic ties between Israel and the UAE, including an exchange of embassies and ambassadors. Israeli and UAE leaders will sign bilateral agreements in the coming days solidifying their commitment to collaborating on security, tourism, healthcare, energy, and telecommunications issues. The peace deal will also lead to direct flights between the two countries.
In exchange for normalizing ties with the UAE, Israel will halt plans to annex up to 30% of the biblical lands of Judea and Samaria – also known as the West Bank.
Until now Israel has had no diplomatic relations with Gulf Arab countries.
The last time Israel signed a peace treaty with a major Arab state was in 1994 between Israel and Jordan.
“Opening direct ties between two of the Middle East’s most dynamic societies and advanced economics will transform the region by spurring economic growth, enhancing technological innovation and forging closer people-to-people relations,” a joint statement issued from President Trump, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Abu Dhabi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan said.
The necessity remains to scrutinize world happenings so we may be prepared for whatever is coming, especially since recent attempts at peace in the Middle East may be a precursor for the fulfillment the prophecies that say, “When they say Peace, Peace sudden destruction comes upon them.” (I Thess. 5:3-7)
“What happens in the coming days will actually dictate what happens in the coming decades,” US Secretary of State John Kerry told the American Jewish Committee (AJC) Global Forum in Washington, DC.
Trump suggested that more diplomatic breakthroughs between Israel and other Muslim countries were expected.
“Things are happening that I can’t talk about,” he told reporters.
