Both Gulf states barely hid ties with Israel, and now they are looking forward to open communication.
NOTE: Israel has one of the most important technology sectors in the world.
When the COVID19 ends, Israel will have the opportunity to explore deserts, beaches and shopping malls in the Gulf.

The normalization of relations with the UAE and Bahrain is a real achievement for the Israelis.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu believes in the strategy that was first described in the 1920s as “the Iron Wall”, and the idea centers on the Israel power will eventually make Arabs realize that their only option is to acknowledge its existence.
As that Israelis don’t like isolation in the Middle East, peace with Egypt and Jordan has never been warm ,and they maybe more optimistic about future relations with the Gulf States.
In addition, Netanyahu is also under siege and faces a trial on charges of corruption that may lead him to prison, as he appeared to deal with the COVID19 well and later went wrong ,and the opponents organize weekly rallies outside his residence in Jerusalem.
So the signing ceremony at the White House couldn’t come at a better time…
