Ignore the political sideshow

Lebanon could be the next domino in terms of Arab countries establishing or normalizing diplomatic relations with Israel. I doubt Saudi Arabia will normalize diplomatic relations with Israel until more small players have made deals. Especially interesting will be to see how Turkey plays into all this. I suspect Saudi Arabia and Israel have been quietly working together behind the scenes since the Syrian Civil War broke out and destabilized the entire region, as well as Europe.

Israel vs Iran in 2020

It appears that the Palestinians and the Iranians are being encircled.

It is likely that Saudi Arabia influenced Bahrain and UAE to sign deals with Israel.

These peace deals represent an unprecedented shift, and breach in tradition with regards to the Palestinians.

I believe UAE and Bahrain went first to test the waters and lay the groundwork for future moves.

The new US-Israel-Sunni alignment are trying to deal with the Palestinians; cut them off from Iran support and force them into the worst possible peace agreement. They’re also trying to address the nuclear and oil conflict with Iran primarily against Saudi Arabia. Of course there’s also the proxy wars in Syria and Yemen to consider.

It is not clear what the full end goal is. The odds of a shooting war seem to be increasing.

Israel – M.E. Edition – Sept 12, 2020

Analysis: These peace deals are unprecedented in modern history. Palestine and Iran both are being isolated further. The Sunni Arab nations aligning with Israel is a major development. It would be getting more press in the US if our country wasn’t going off the rails.
