Israel Agreement Bible

Trump announced the deal Friday after a three-way phone conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Bahrain`s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. The three heads of state and government also made a brief six-paragraph joint statement certifying the agreement. The deal could revive Netanyahu, who was accused of corruption last year. Business with the Gulf Arab countries "is a direct result of the policy I have pursued over the past two decades," namely "peace for peace, peace by force," Netanyahu said. The royal family and Bahraini officials voted in favour of the Israel-EAU agreement. However, civil society groups and others condemned this approach and warned the monarchy against following in the footsteps of the United Arab Emirates, despite Bahrain`s years of flirtation with Israel and Jewish leaders. Unlike the Emirates, the Jews had a historical presence on the island and some still live there. Christian evangelicals, who have been a driving force in the White House`s pro-Israel policy for generations, welcomed the agreement reached between the Gulf Arab State and Israel to make their alliance public. Like the Vae agreement, Friday`s agreement between Bahrain and Israel will normalize diplomatic, trade, security and other relations between the two countries.

Bahrain had already, along with Saudi Arabia, abandoned the ban on Israeli flights with its airspace. Saudi acquiescence to the agreements has been considered key to the deals. In the Hebrew Bible, the covenant (in Hebrew: berit) is the formal agreement between Yhwh and the people of Israel and Judah, in which each accepts a number of obligations towards the other. The language and understanding of the federal state is based on ancient treaties between the nations of the Middle East. The agreement will likely be seen as another setback for the Palestinians, who have failed to condemn the Arab League`s normalization with Israel until they have reached an independent state. It was one of the few cards the Palestinians still held in the negotiations, as peace talks stalled. Trump`s son-in-law and high-ranking adviser, Jared Kushner, found that the agreement is Israel`s second with an Arab country in 30 days, after making peace with only two Arab nations in 72 years of independence, Egypt and Jordan. It`s another diplomatic victory for Trump with less than two months to go before the presidential election and an opportunity to support support among pro-Israel evangelicals. Just last week, Trump announced agreements in principle for the recognition of Israel by Kosovo and Serbia to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
