He shouldn’t be surprised, after all, four Arab nations – United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco – have signed onto the Abraham Accords. This landmark agreement normalized diplomatic relations between Israel, providing new opportunities for direct flights, people-to-people exchanges, business partnerships, and government agreements that have all led to investment and growth in the area. Saudi Arabia is predicted to soon become the fifth.
What’s more, the Arab members are very pleased with their new relationships with the Jewish state, which has benefitted them in many ways, including lucrative trade agreements, increased tourism, advanced technology sharing, military support to the tune of $3 billion in state-of-the-art weaponry, not to mention the security of having a partner like Israel for defense against their mutual enemy – and state sponsor of terrorism – Iran. Probably the most important reason these leaders are not supporting Hamas.
