Bahrain recognizes Israel, announces establishment of diplomatic ties

 

“Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East…” said a joint statement from Israel, Bahrain, and the U.S.

On Friday, Israel and Bahrain announced their intention to establish diplomatic ties in a joint statement delivered at the White House.

The announcement arrived about a month after the United Arab Emirates (UAE) became the first Gulf nation to forge open ties with the Jewish state.

U.S President Donald Trump announced the Israel-Bahrain agreement on September 11, a day on which Americans honor those who perished in terror attacks in New York and Pennsylvania on that date 19 years ago.

“There’s no more powerful response to the hatred that spawned 9/11 than this [peace] agreement,” Trump commented to reporters gathered at the White House.

Trump issued the comments after a joint call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.

The three heads of state also released a joint statement on the accord, which was announced in the run-up to an event at the White House during which Israel and the UAE will formalize the peace agreement they announced in August.

It appears that Bahrain will join the ceremony for the “Abraham Accords,” which will be held on September 15 and will be attended by Netanyahu and UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed, in addition to other foreign dignitaries.

The Abraham Accords mark a major milestone in the Middle East, with the UAE and Bahrain joining Egypt and Jordan in a growing club of Arab countries with official diplomatic relations with Israel.

While Bahrain is the latest Muslim-majority country to express its desire to advance diplomatic ties with Israel, Sudan and Kosovo also communicated their openness to establish relations with Israel.

Kosovo’s rival Serbia also recently announced it plans to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

Israel’s ability to bridge the gap and make peace with its Arab neighbors has been roundly condemned by Iran, which seeks Israel’s destruction and threatens Gulf nations like Saudi Arabia.

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps blasted Bahrain o Saturday, referring to its decision to sign a peace agreement with Israel as a “threat to security in West Asia and the Muslim world,” the Associated Press reported.

The Palestinians also slammed the Abraham Accords, with leadership and Palestinian Authority-controlled media referring to the peace deals as a betrayal of their cause.

Senior Palestinian official Wasel Abu Yousef called the Israel-Bahrain agreement “another stab in the back,” adding that the Palestinians “see absolutely no justification for free normalization with Israel.”

Conversely, Netanyahu and King Hamad called the agreement “a historic breakthrough to further peace in the Middle East.”

“Opening direct dialogue and ties between these two dynamic societies and advanced economies will continue the positive transformation of the Middle East and increase stability, security, and prosperity in the region,” said a joint statement from Israel, Bahrain, and the U.S.

“The region is responding very favorably to the UAE deal and hopefully it’s a sign that even more will come,” senior White House adviser Jared Kushner told the AP.

The move by UAE and Bahrain represents a turning point in Israel’s relations with Arab nations, which previously conditioned peace agreements on the Palestinians resolving their conflict with the Jewish state.

Critics of the PA have long claimed that the Palestinians sabotage their own cause, maintaining a steadfast commitment to rejectionism during previous negotiations.

以色列,巴林和美国的联合声明说:“在这两个充满活力的社会与发达经济体之间开放直接对话和联系将继续中东的积极转变……”

埃宾·桑德勒(Ebin Sandler),《世界以色列新闻》

星期五,以色列和巴林在白宫发表的联合声明中宣布打算建立外交关系。

在阿拉伯联合酋长国(UAE)成为第一个与犹太国家建立开放关系的海湾国家之后的一个月,这一宣布就到了。

美国总统唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)于9月11日宣布了以色列与巴林的协议,这一天美国人向19年前在纽约和宾夕法尼亚州因恐怖袭击而丧生的人致敬。

特朗普对聚集在白宫的记者说:“对这场9/11仇恨的回应,没有比这份[和平]协议更强有力的回应。”

在与以色列总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡和巴林国王哈马德·本·伊萨·哈利法的联合呼吁后,特朗普发表了上述评论。

三位国家元首还发表了关于该协议的联合声明,该声明是在白宫事件之前宣布的。在此期间,以色列和阿联酋将正式确定他们在八月份宣布的和平协议。

看来,巴林将参加将于9月15日举行的“亚伯拉罕协定”的典礼,内塔尼亚胡和阿联酋外交部长阿卜杜拉·本·扎耶德以及其他外国政要将出席。

《亚伯拉罕协定》标志着中东的一个重要里程碑,阿联酋和巴林加入了埃及和约旦,成为一个与以色列建立正式外交关系的阿拉伯国家,该俱乐部在不断壮大。

巴林是最新的穆斯林占多数的国家,它表达了与以色列建交的愿望,但苏丹和科索沃也表示愿意与以色列建立关系。

科索沃的竞争对手塞尔维亚最近还宣布计划将使馆从特拉维夫迁至以色列首都耶路撒冷。

以色列全面谴责以色列弥合差距并与阿拉伯邻国实现和平的能力。伊朗寻求破坏以色列并威胁沙特阿拉伯等海湾国家。

美联社报道,伊朗伊斯兰革命卫队星期六炸毁了巴林,指其决定与以色列签署和平协议,以“威胁到西亚和穆斯林世界的安全。”

巴勒斯坦人还抨击了《亚伯拉罕协议》,领导层和巴勒斯坦权力机构控制的媒体称和平协议是对他们事业的背叛。

巴勒斯坦高级官员瓦泽尔·阿布·约瑟夫(Wasel Abu Yousef)称,以色列与巴林的协议“是另一次刺杀”,并补充说,巴勒斯坦人“绝对没有理由与以色列实现自由正常化。”

相反,内塔尼亚胡和哈马德国王称该协议“是中东进一步和平的历史性突破”。

以色列,巴林和美国的联合声明说:“在这两个充满活力的社会与发达经济体之间开放直接对话和联系,将继续中东的积极转变,并增加该地区的稳定,安全和繁荣。”

白宫资深顾问贾里德·库什纳(Jared Kushner)告诉美联社:“该地区对阿联酋的交易反应非常好,希望这表明还会有更多的迹象。”

阿联酋和巴林的举动标志着以色列与阿拉伯国家关系的转折点。阿拉伯国家以前曾将和平协议作为巴勒斯坦人解决与犹太国家冲突的条件。

巴勒斯坦权力机构的批评者长期以来一直声称,巴勒斯坦人破坏自己的事业,在先前的谈判中坚定地致力于反对主义。
