And many Israeli politicians considered this wedding to be “another symbol of strengthening peace in the region thanks to the Abrahamic agreements. And it is a beautiful and influential appearance and represents a milestone in the relations between the countries of normalization and Israel.”
In September 2020, Bahrain announced that it had reached an agreement to establish full diplomatic relations with Israel, under US auspices.
The Bahrain agreement came about a month after a similar agreement reached by the UAE and Israel in August 2020, but it was met with widespread Palestinian condemnation, as the Palestinian factions and leadership considered it a “betrayal” of Palestine.
