Without prejudice, Netanyahu managed to change Arab relations with the state of the Zionist entity through normalization. From the intensification of visits to Arab countries.
After Netanyahu’s overseas successes in most African countries and his placing in decision-making circles in these countries, Netanyahu is now making more of these visits, backed by the Arab anti-state run.
Netanyahu’s most significant overseas travel came on 23 last month, when Israeli media reported a secret Israeli Prime Minister’s visit to Saudi Arabia and a meeting with her Prince Mohammed bin Salman, coinciding with the Kingdom’s denial of the visit or any meeting with Israeli officials .
Israeli Broadcasting Corporation (Kan) and Israeli Army Radio reported that Netanyahu met Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman and US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo there.
On the other hand, tweets were spread by bloggers and journalists who noticed a plane that made a special flight between Tel Aviv and the Saudi city of Neom on the Red Sea coast, including the editor of the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Avi Scharf.
This unprecedented meeting between the Prime Minister of Israel and the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia raised many questions about the possibility of bringing the two countries closer. Gail Morcian from the Foundation for Science and Politics in Berlin sees that the date of this eventual visit, i.e. its arrival after the US presidential election, indicates that “it has become clear to both the Israeli and Saudi sides that the future US President Joe Biden it will not continue the path taken by Donald Trump on W Iran.
The Trump administration has worked to bring Israel closer to some Arab countries, and it is likely that Netanyahu’s visit will serve that purpose as well.
While political expert Muhammad Kawas has ruled out a move by Saudi Arabia to normalize at this particular time, Murcian considers the rapprochement that took place between the UAE, Bahrain and Israel “breaking the taboo”.
He believes that the challenge facing Saudi Arabia is much greater than that facing the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, “given the religious symbolism the Kingdom enjoys in the Arab world and the presence of the Islamic holy sites of Mecca and Medina on its land, at the same time Netanyahu insists on his old belief that talks and rapprochement between Israel and the Arab world is possible.
Netanyahu and Bahrain’s foreign minister
Prior to Netanyahu’s visit to Saudi Arabia, the “hunted wolf” held talks in Tel Aviv with Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdul Latif Al-Zayani.
Bahrain’s Foreign Minister reaffirmed: “The Kingdom of Bahrain wishes to join peace as a strategic option that runs the framework for initiatives to strengthen international cooperation, stability, peace and prosperity in the Middle East region,” according to a quote from the official Bahrain News Agency (BNA).
Netanyahu stressed that the results of this visit and its success will open wider horizons for joint bilateral cooperation between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the state of “Israel”.
According to Arab reports, Netanyahu and the Ashkenazim also scheduled two separate visits to Bahrain later this week, but have postponed them at the request of the Gulf Kingdom.
Netanyahu’s visit, which will be the first officially announced visit of an Israeli prime minister to a Gulf state, is rumored to take place in late December, not next week.
Netanyahu said today Tuesday that he had a telephone conversation with the Prince of Bahrain and Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, who invited him to visit the Gulf state, months after the two countries agreed to normalize relations.
Netanyahu said he would be making the trip soon, and this week his office began planning his visit.
But before the trip was finally decided, Bahrain asked Netanyahu to postpone the visit until next month and make it part of a wider Persian Gulf tour that includes the UAE, officials told Israeli journalists last week.
According to “Israeli” media reports, Netanyahu will make his first public visit to the UAE and the Kingdom of Bahrain early next week and is expected to meet Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Prince of Abu Dhabi, de facto ruler of the United Arab Emirates, and King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, King of Bahrain.
The affair did not end with Netanyahu’s visits to the Persian Gulf countries or his reception of leaders in those countries, but rather a “hunted wolf” may head to Cairo in the coming weeks, “Israeli” media reports.
The day before, the Maariv newspaper reported that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is due to visit Cairo in the coming weeks to meet President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi.
The Israeli newspaper said in a Monday report that the focus of Netanyahu’s talks with Sisi will be economic issues, followed by a meeting of economic delegations from both countries.
The newspaper noted that “following the standardization agreements between Israel, the UAE and Bahrain, which will focus mainly on economic areas, Tel Aviv has also started work to strengthen economic relations with Egypt.”
Officials from both countries are currently conducting talks ahead of the official visit of the Israeli Prime Minister to Cairo in the coming weeks.
There will be a bilateral meeting of Israeli and Egyptian economic delegations to discuss joint economic projects and the strengthening of trade relations between the two countries.
The newspaper noted that “Netanyahu has a rich history of meetings with Egyptian leaders. In 2010, he met with then-president Hosni Mubarak and both sides discussed attempts to open direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Netanyahu’s office scheduled another visit to Cairo in winter 2016, and the visit was canceled by the Egyptian side in light of statements by Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, who stated that Cairo flooded Hamas tunnels at Israel’s request.
For its part, Cairo has not commented on the news of Netanyahu’s visit, whether confirmed or denied, although media reports spoke of Egyptian reluctance to speed up Arab normalization with Israel in the light of the Palestinian peace negotiations and expansion of occupation settlement policies that have been sluggish for years.
