      WASHINGTON (AP) — Bahrain on Friday agreed to normalize relations with Israel, becoming the latest Arab nation to do so as part of a broader diplomatic push by President Donald Trump and his administration to further ease the Jewish state’s relative isolation in the Middle East and find common ground with nations that share U.S. wariness of Iran.

      Trump announced the agreement on the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks following a phone call he had with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa. The three leaders also issued a brief joint statement marking the second such Arab normalization agreement with Israel in the past two months.

      The announcement came less than a week before Trump hosts a White House ceremony to mark the establishment of full relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, something that Trump and his Middle East team brokered in August. Bahrain’s foreign minister will attend that event and sign a separate agreement with Netanyahu.

      “There’s no more powerful response to the hatred that spawned 9/11 than this agreement,” Trump told reporters at the White House.

      I actually think this is good news, but I wonder.

      What does all this mean for the Israeli theft of Palestinian land? What about them? Is this going to isolate them until they just fucking go away or something?

      @sffh Next, the Mossad will be training their internal security forces like they trained the Shah’s SAVAK. Remember them? Those regimes will eventually suffer a similar fate to that of the Shah. Meanwhile, all sorts of American contractors and mercenaries will get paid some big bucks for awhile, all in the name of defending our Arab allies against the Enemy of the Time. The CIA will have some great spy and ops games, movies will be made, and a good time will be had by all.

      Except the people living in those countries, of course. And the Palestinians? Nobody ever does anything much for the poor damned Palestinians, now do they? Just like the poor damned Irish before them.

      Is this what tRumps noble peace prize is all about – why he has been canceling treaties in the middle east since he got in office and now playing at making supposed treaties just before November?

      All of which were thrown out by Trump, thus proving the worthlessness of executive orders from one administration to the next. Yet they’re all cited by Vote Blue No Matter Who apologists for pointing out how much “better” Obama was than Trump. It’s laughable. @jwirr
