The Trump administration consisting of Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence and Jared Kushner had pioneered this once in a lifetime historic change.

According to the white house they made a statement which goes thus;

QUOTE
‘Now that the ice has been broken, I expect more Arab and Muslim countries will follow the United Arab Emirates’ lead.’

  1. Israel and Bahrain have committed to begin the exchange of embassies and ambassadors, start direct flights between their countries, and launch cooperation initiatives across a broad range of sectors.
    2.This peace deal is a significant step forward for both Israel and Bahrain.
    3.It further enhances their security while creating opportunities for them to deepen their economic ties.
    4.This deal comes on the heels of the historic normalization agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.
    5.The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are the first Arab nations to normalize relations with Israel in more than 25 years.
    6.The United States will continue to support the people of Bahrain as they work to counter terrorism and extremism, develop economically, and build new peaceful partnerships across the region.

Bahraini activist and dissident Sayed Ahmed AlWadaei tweeted his support for Palestinians saying, “Bahraini people are united against normalization with occupation, from which the Palestinians suffer the most. This decision does not reflect the will of the people.”

Iran as also called the act an act of betrayal to them by their fellow Islamic State counterparts as they reject any form of normalization with the state of Israel.

Both the UAE and Bahrain agreements were largely negotiated by Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, who spearheaded the administration’s efforts to broker a peace deal between Palestine and Israel.

That deal, which analysts said heavily favored Israel, was rejected by Palestinians in January, prompting the administration to consider peace deals between Israel and other Arab nations in the region.

Some observers say that diplomatic ties between Israel and Arab states may actually help Palestinians achieve their goal of creating a sovereign state — Egypt and Jordan, nearby Arab nations with diplomatic ties to Israel, have historically helped promote peace between Israelis and Palestinians.
