The argument that these nations are the smallest and insignificant to form a peace treaty is weak. If they were so insignificant and already were indifferent towards Israel, why didn't *any other leader* try to do the same. The answer is simple, war makes money. So many war hawks for so long, it's as if Trump is like the second coming of Jesus wanting peace.

Obama and Bush only wanted endless wars in the region. Millions have died and every day the news tries to paint Trump as the monster.

The dominoes of peace will continue to fall and at a faster rate.

If Hilary was in power, we would be at war with with Libya and Sirya. Apparently having good relations with countries is a bad thing to war mongering leftists.

Palestinians demand so much, but I think Trump can do it if he wins and gets another four years.

At this rate I wouldn't doubt it. I would kill to get transcripts of the meetings that took place for this to happen.

Did trump set it up like the apprentice? Did he show everyone videos of U.S. missiles hitting Qassem Soleimani's head and tell them to sign the papers? What exactly did Trump do, to make this happen? I am fascinated by the process that took place here.

If Trump gets a 2nd term there will be peace between PA and Israel. PA will have no choice. More countries will recognize Israel and Iran will probably even try a new deal.

Abbas was hoping he could out wait Trump and the Dems and Biden would ride in from the sky and save him. But once Trump secures his next term they won't have any choice, and probably no money either.

If you want peace between Israel and the Palestinians vote Trump. If you want more war vote Biden.

People don't understand the huge snowball effect this creates. The amount of pressure this puts on everyone else is huge. I could write a damn book on it.

This is a gargantuan first step.

Especially over there.. it's now going to be "ok" to deal with and talk to Israel because "the other guys are doing it".

If the rest of them stop chanting death to Israel, I am hoping maybe Israel will take a good faith look at what they're doing and how it could be done better.

You never know, it could blow up in everyone's faces, but it's worth trying.

So all these so called politicians for decades couldn't do a thing for helping peace, yet Trump has done it twice lately.

Who knew a business guy known more for opening New Jersey casinos and USA pageants would help broker deals better than all the political science guys before him.

Yay! Another country Israel was not at war with signing documents to improve its business relationships.
Really dude? Would you make the same comment if North Korea and South Korea normalized relations? Fairly similar situation.

Good job by President Donald Trump. The more countries which normalize relations with Israel, the more isolated groups like Hizb'alla and the terrorists supported by the Iranian regime become.

I think a lot of it is he's getting them to just meet, he got the UAE to accept it, and each one after that should be easier and easier. Once it's no longer 'taboo' to do business with Israel in public in the middle east, there will be no reason to continue the status quo.

Once the governments are OK with Israel, I expect the populations to fall in line as well. Remember prior to 1948 they all lived along with each other in relative peace. I fully believe it can happen again. Having a big boogeyman in Iran definitely helps things too.

I'd prefer Religion not divide people anywhere, any longer.. and while I don't think this is that happening, hopefully it's a small step in the right direction.

Amazing. I sure hope he isn't posturing about the "5 or 6 other countries" line and that's coming for real.

So far, so good!

This is amazing.

Can't wait for those from UAE and Bahrain to visit Israel and pray at Alasqa!

I feel like a united Front with Israel, UAE, Bahrain, and the rest is the only way to solve the issue once and for all.
Its pretty much what we are seeing.

I call it the Israel-Gulf Shield.

And its all thanks to Obama. If he didn't suck the Mullaha's cocks while throwing Israel and Saudi under the bus maybe none of this would be happening. But instead Iran became to big of an enemy for the Gulf states and as they say the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

Thanks Obama!
