A Bit of Hope in the Middle East
« on: August 13, 2020, 01:08:59 PM »
Particularly in this year, any good news is worthy of note and at least cautious celebration.  As I'm sure you've all read, Israel and the UAE have agreed to the full normalization of relations.  Israel has agreed to suspend annexations in the disputed territories.  The UAE will help Israel reach normalization agreements with other Arab states.  President Trump and the US government played a role in negotiations. 


The agreement among Israel, the UAE, and the US is being called the Abraham Accord.


We all know that the landscape is littered with failed efforts toward peace in the Middle East.  Let's pray that the Abraham Accord proves to be a durable step in the right direction.
