The Trump administration has brokered a peace agreement Israel and two Arab countries — the UAE and Bahrain –, and now, according to White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, there are five other Arab countries who are interested in normalizing relations with Israel. As we read in a report from Reuters (via Yahoo! News):
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Thursday that five more countries are seriously considering striking a normalization deal with Israel after the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed accords this week.
Meadows, speaking to reporters on Air Force One on the flight that carried President Donald Trump to a campaign rally in Wisconsin, would not identify the five nations.
But he said three were in the region. He would not comment further.
Trump has spoken optimistically about more countries agreeing to a normalization of relations with Israel following the UAE and Bahrain deals.
One possibility is Oman, whose ambassador attended the White House ceremony on Tuesday. Trump predicted on Tuesday that Saudi Arabia would eventually agree to a deal.
“Blessed are the peacemakers” are the words of Christ, and any agreement to peace and good relations should be something accepted and praised. What the Trump administration has brokered in the Middle East, in regards to Arab Israeli relations, is quite remarkable and very good. The roots of this normalization is, of course, fear of Iran, since the Arabs are terrified of a rising Persia which, out of its hatred for the Sunnis and the Arabs, want to destroy the countries of the Arab Gulf. The Arabs have absolutely no choice but to make peace with Israel. What this shows is something that has never seriously been pointed in the mainstream: the source of instability in the Middle East is not Israel, but the tribal infighting between Middle Eastern countries that goes back over a millennia. The Lebanese Maronites hate the Palestinians, and this has nothing to do with Israel; the Arabs and Persians hate each other, and this has nothing to do with Israel; the the Turks and Arabs hate each other, and this has nothing to do with Israel; the Shiites and Sunnis hate each other with the utmost murderous rage, and this would be present even if Israel did not exist. The root of the Middle East’s problems is not Israel nor Jews, but Islam and triablist hatreds. Peace is possible, but it takes a rising regional power (Iran) to scare the Arabs enough to make normalize relations with Israel. It goes to show that the ultimate enemy within the Middle East is not Israel, but tribalism.
