(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- President Donald Trump promised to stop starting unnecessary wars and striking peace deals in the Middle East instead, and he’s followed through on that promise. This week, President Donald Trump announced a historic peace deal agreed between Israeli and United Arab Emirates leaders, facilitated by the United States.
The deal means the two countries will establish normal diplomatic relations and even establish embassies in each other’s countries and set up ambassadors. It’s a truly historic deal that wouldn’t have happened, at least this soon, unless brokered by President Donald Trump and his administration. On Thursday, the crown prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu informed the president of the conclusion of their peace talks.
President Trump tweeted the announcement, announcing a “historic peace agreement” and a “HUGE breakthrough.”
HUGE breakthrough today! Historic Peace Agreement between our two GREAT friends, Israel and the United Arab Emirates!

An official agreement will be signed by the two nations at a ceremony hosted in the White House over the next few weeks. It is expected to “unlock great potential in the region,” according to a statement issued by all three countries.
“Delegations from Israel and the United Arab Emirates will meet in the coming weeks to sign bilateral agreements regarding investments, tourism, direct flights, security, telecommunications, technology, energy, healthcare, culture, the environment, the establishment of reciprocal embassies, and other areas of mutual benefits,” the statement explains. “Opening direct ties between two of the Middle East’s most dynamic societies and advanced economies will transform the region by spurring economic growth, enhancing technological innovation and forging closer people-to-people relations.”
It’s going to be hard for the Democrats to complain about this one. The deal has been years in the making and marks a huge turning point for the region.
Israel agreed to suspend their plans to declare sovereignty over various areas along the West Bank, which set out as part of the peace plan put forward by President Trump back in January. Israel will instead focus on expanding its ties with countries across the Muslim and Arab world.
Can you imagine if Trump had another four years? Who knows how far this peace plan could move along?
