    I think it will, the UAE is more progressive on a lot of these matters and does not have any territorial disputes with Israel to consider.

    Respectfully, this could simply be a Trump re-election ploy similar to asking Ukraine to investigate Biden and the 2016 election. The “diplomatic breakthrough” was at “the request of President Trump,” and that Israel will suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.”

    Most likely. With it being this close to the election they don't want to be seen giving him a win. Heck, they don't want to give him a win even when it is not close to the election.

    Or they could just read the article and see that there's no historic peace agreement.

    Which was supposedly done last October over a year away from the election. That don't hold water.....
    Wow, can you imagine that? A president getting involved in diplomacy? Shades of Carter/Begin/Sadat and Camp David.

    Let me get this straight. Are you saying this agreement happened in last October and you're absolutely positive of that?

    Don't get me wrong, I'm all for peace in the mid-east. I'm saying this could be a campaign election ploy.

    The fact that there's nothing definitive in the joint statement other than they're agreeing to try and work out their differences makes it a possibility. I addressed that in my first post. What does suspend declaring infer? It means to stop saying it for now.

    No, peace is a good thing. Trump taking part in that, did a good.

    Last October when it made news (actually occurred in July/Aug). You having trouble following this conversation?....I can slow down a bit.
    Diplomacy falls under the EXCLUSIVE jurisdiction of the president....least ways that's what the constitution says. He can insert himself anytime he desires.

    Uh huh and it took 16 months after Begin/Sadat shook hands to sign the treaty. You have to understand they have to agree on a framework prior to drawing up the paperwork.

    How silly of me. Thanks for the correction, I'm following you now. It was just unthinkable to me that anyone thought Trump was not intent on using Burisma to bad mouth Joe Biden.

    What's your point? Just like he inserted himself in trying to get Zelensky to declare he was opening investigations into Biden, he probably requested Netanyahu to say he would suspend declaring their sovereignty over disputed territory.
