But it seems like you already came to a conclusion🙄
You mean giving Trump credit? Yes you are correct but it was with a qualifier. When the facts come out we will see if it was just to buy some votes.

...but others in Israel say it was part of the deal.

Do you mean the Israeli reporter? The article you posted doesn't name anyone else as the source for the claim.

(Disclaimer: I think Trump is wrong to sell advanced weapons to the UAE, and if this deal is what allowed that to happen it's not a good thing. However, from the article posted above it seems like Trump was going to sell the weapons regardless, and the deal was not connected to that sale (except perhaps Bibi making the best of a bad situation.))

Which would reflect VERY poorly on Trump regarding his Israel policies.

This is how it starts. We need to wait and see what else comes out and from who.

Add Sudan.

It will take as much time as it will, but one by one Arab and Muslim countries will "give up" on the "Palestinian issue" as a problem that isn't theirs to be concerned with, and will do what's best for their own interest.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It's not like that outside of Israel.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Understandable when you live in Israel and your prism is that of terrorism and hatred from the arab neighbors, but outside of Israel (and in Israel as well), I've had many very pleasant interactions with Islamic arabs.

Depends where. Egypt and Jordan aren't very safe for Jews who are easily visible as such.

The major difference between this (and the coming agreements with other Gulf nations) and the one's forged by the Israeli left (I know Begin was Likud, but he was literally forced into it by major left-wing forces) with Egypt and Jordan was that in this case there isn't widespread popular resentment and hatred towards Jews and the State of Israel and the agreement just removes legal barriers and formalizes FRIENDLY cooperation that was previously in place.

In the case of Egypt and Jordan there is widespread popular hatred and opposition to any peace and cooperation with Jews or the State of Israel. The agreements formalized what was in place prior to that, security cooperation and some trade. The population in Egypt and Jordan (and to a lesser extent in Morrocco) doesn't like the peaceful and open relations with Jews and with the State of Israel.
