“The Abraham Accords have thus far been partially or fully accepted by Israel, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, and Morocco. Iran’s largest competition in the region, Saudi Arabia, was in talks to enter agreement before the events of October 7 took place. Each state signed under different stipulations. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was preparing to annex the entirety of the West Bank in 2020. The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain decided that this was not acceptable, and agreed to normalize relations with Israel and recognize Israel as a state if Israel would not formally annex the West Bank. Naturally, billions of dollars in weapons sales from the United States played a huge part in this agreement.” (05/09/24)
