On Friday, President Donald Trump announced another historic peace deal, this time between Bahrain and Israel.
“Another HISTORIC breakthrough today! Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days!” Trump tweeted on Friday.
President Trump has now been nominated not once, but twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. This was done for very good reason…
In the space of about two months, the Trump administration has brokered not one, not two, but three major peace deals between conflicting nations.
Two of them were brokered between Israel and Arab nations, slowly inching the Middle East towards peace.
The deal that is getting a LOT of attention is the most recent deal, which is an agreement to normalize relations between Israel and Bahrain. With Bahrain on board, experts expect more nations may follow suit, including Sudan, Oman, and perhaps even Saudi Arabia…
Iran pushes back
Not surprisingly, the news was not well received by neighboring Iran, which blasted the deal as “shameful,” according to a recent report by Reuters.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that Iran would like to see Israel blown off the map. As such, the terrorist nation was very displeased to hear that Bahrain is now working toward a more peaceful relationship with the U.S. ally.
Rather than get on board with a peaceful Middle East, Iran is now threatening more turmoil.
After the deal was announced, Iran threatened Bahrain and its allies over any unwanted fallout from the new alliance.
Iranian TV quoted its Foreign Ministry as stating, “Bahrain’s shameful move sacrifices the Palestinian cause and decades of struggle … at the expense of the U.S. election.”
Trump celebrates another win
This deal now gets added to Trump’s raft of successes. “There have been two peace agreements with Israel in the last 72 years. This is now the second peace agreement that we have announced in the last month, and I am very hopeful that there will be more to follow,” the president said during a press conference on Friday.
