It’s not just Bahrain. Israel is this close to establishing full diplomatic relations with Oman, Morocco, Sudan, and even Saudi Arabia. The neo-Nazi Palestinian Authority has for decades refused to accept generous peace offers from the Israelis. They mistakenly believed that Israel would become a pariah state, thereby forcing it to accept it’s suicidal demands.
The Palestinian leaders never took into account the profound impact that Israel’s expertise in technology, defense, security, agriculture, water and many other fields would have on it’s diplomatic relations. As such, they are today totally helpless to stop Israel’s diplomatic surge in the region, and outside the region as well.
As more Muslim majority nations in the Middle East and Africa establish full diplomatic relations with Israel, the Palestinian Authority will eventually be forced to accept a peace deal with Israel. However, they will get much less then what they ever could have hoped to get as recently as a 5 years ago.

Israeli officials say Bahrain in advanced contacts to be next in line for ties
Hours after UAE and Israel establish relations in deal announced by Trump, Hebrew media reports indicate Bahrain may follow soon
By Times of Israel, August 15, 2020
Senior Israeli officials reportedly said Thursday that they are in advanced talks with Bahrain about normalizing ties with the Gulf state, hours after the historic announcement on Israel’s establishment of ties with the United Arab Emirates.
Bahrain is expected to be the next country to establish official ties with Israel, a senior official told the Kan public broadcaster.A senior American official told Palestinian media that Bahrain and Oman are expected to normalize ties with Israel in the near future, the report also said.The contacts with Bahrain were also reported by Army Radio, which said that multiple Israeli officials said they were in “advanced contacts” with Bahrain about the potential move.
Israel and the United Arab Emirates announced their agreement Thursday afternoon. They “agreed to the full normalization of relations between Israel and the UAE,” they said in a joint statement with the US that was released by President Donald Trump.
Said Trump: “This is a monumental step to forging ties of cooperation in the Middle East and I think you’re going to have other countries come forward. I can tell you we already do and they want to make a deal. They’re going to have peace in the Middle East.”
Bahrain was among those welcoming the deal: “This historic step will contribute to strengthening stability and peace in the region,” the government in Manama said in a statement on the national news agency.
Bahrain also said the accord stopped “the annexation of Palestinian lands and [was] advancing the region towards peace.”
The UAE-Israel deal marks the third such agreement the Jewish state has struck with an Arab country after Egypt (1979) and Jordan (1994).
Israeli and UAE delegations will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements regarding investment, tourism, direct flights, security and the establishment of reciprocal embassies, their statement said.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Thursday night that Israel had entered “new era of Israeli relations with the Arab world,” and that other deals with Arab countries would follow.
