(Tea Party PAC) – A truly historic moment unfolded on Thursday, as Israel and the United Arab Emirates managed to reach a historic peace deal that will establish full diplomatic relations. The deal came as a result of trilateral talks between the three countries.
President Trump was extremely stoked about the deal, writing on Twitter:
“HUGE breakthrough today. Historic Peace Agreement between our two GREAT friends, Israel and the United Arab Emirates!”
But he isn’t the only one excited about where this could potentially lead in the future. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu heaped tons of praise on the deal as well.
Here’s more on this from Breitbart:
Netanyahu described it as a “historic moment of breakthrough for peace.”
“A new era has opened in Israel’s relations with the Arab world,” he said.
The deal marks the third Arab country to hold diplomatic ties with the Jewish state after Egypt and Jordan. Most of the Arab world does not recognize the existence of Israel.
UAE leader Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan posted on Twitter: “The UAE and Israel also agreed to cooperation and setting a roadmap towards establishing a bilateral relationship.”
He also added that “an agreement was reached to stop further Israeli annexation of Palestinian territories.”
However in an address to the nation, Netanyahu said later that there were “no changes” to his plan to apply Israeli law over parts of the West Bank but that Trump had only requested to pause it for now.
“I am committed to [annexation], that has not changed. I put [applying] sovereignty on the table, I worked on it for three years in talks with Trump’s staff and we have brought results. At my request, Trump has included sovereignty in his peace plan.”
“From the beginning, I said that sovereignty would be conducted in full coordination with the U.S.,” he said.
He added that the Trump peace plan is “the first real plan since the Six Day War, which met many demands of Israel that no peace plan to date has taken into account.”
This is a huge development in a very war torn part of the world. It’s yet another accomplishment put under Trump’s belt, though it’s not likely the political left in our country will acknowledge it as such. To do so would be to go against the current mission to destroy the president and his legacy before November’s election.
Not only does this deal improve Israel’s standing in the Middle East, it also opens up the gate to help Christians being persecuted in this area of the world. This means folks will be a bit more free to practice their religion and will hopefully lead to an explosion in popularity in the idea of religious liberty.
It might be possible to achieve peace in the Middle East after all. Just imagine how much liberals would hate that.
