Israel-UAE-Bahrain normalization deal has created a new Middle East
It shows what can be achieved when countries that for over 70 years failed to find common ground, come together in a show of peace, normalization and solidarity.

A new Middle East. That is what was created on Tuesday at the Israel-UAE-Bahrain normalization deal signed at the White House.
It is a new Middle East because what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu did with the foreign ministers of the UAE and Bahrain was to create not just a new reality that brings stability to the region against the looming threat from Iran, but it also presents the world with a new vision of what is possible.
