Five Other Arab Countries Are Negotiating Normalization With Israel

Of course they are. Their complete public silence says as much.  Saudi Arabia has had defacto relations for a long time.  They can also afford to be last on the train.

This really informs us that additional agreements will come quickly.

Syria is still dealing with its intetrnal problems but settlement there will ultimately be quick as well ans the only reason they remained in play was solidarity wih the Arab States.  Now they could use the indemnity for the Golan Heights.

What is ultimately left are the Palestinians who are been left behind by history.  There is a deal there for them as well, but then there has always been a deal.  The individials can easily set about to make their own settlement including ultimately living in Israel as a foreign resident.  Or even move to Palm Springs.

Five Other Arab Countries Are Negotiating Normalization With Israel

Brian Wang | October 2, 2020

Oman, Sudan, Comoros, Djibouti and Mauritania are in talks with Israel to normalize relations. Israel already had peace deals with Egypt and Jordan. They just recently reached normalization agreements with UAE and Bahrain.

Saudi Arabia’s current King Salman is against normalization but reports are that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman would be in favor of normalization.

These developments reshape the geopolitics and economics of the region.

In 2019, the ISPSW Strategy Series: Focus on Defense and International Security wrote The New Bloc: “The Middle Eastern Entente”. This think tank paper indicated that Iran, Turkey and Qatar were trying to form an alliance. It was written by Yossef Bodansky. The Institute for Strategic, Political, Security and Economic Consultancy (ISPSW) is a private institute for research and consultancy.

Nextbigfuture does not believe that Turkey will ally with Iran.

Turkey normalized relations with Israel in 2016 and has had relations with Saudi Arabia. Turkey is a member of NATO, but has been erratic. Turkey wants to do its own thing and tries to be the dominant regional power.

Saudi Arabia, Iran, Turkey, Egypt and Israel are the major powers in the region.
