“Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump were in the Israeli Knesset yesterday for a ceremony marking the one year anniversary of the Abraham Accords. They met with former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.”

“Thanks to the Abraham Accords peace deal, Israel has officially appointed David Govrin as its permanent ambassador to Morocco. Amb. Govrin speaks fluent Arabic and served as Israel's ambassador to Egypt from 2016 to August 2020.”

Does he speak French?

Morrocan Arabic is quite different than Egyptian Arabic IINM, though I guess العربية الفصحى could be used.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said he would travel to the United Arab Emirates on Sunday, the first visit by an Israeli premier, as part of a blitz of regional diplomacy against the backdrop of struggling nuclear talks with Iran.

Bennett’s one-day trip to Abu Dhabi, where he will meet with Crown Prince Mohamed bin Zayed, is a milestone for both Israel and its new leader. Israel and the UAE last year signed a normalization deal brokered by the Trump administration under the Abraham Accords, which saw similar agreements penned with Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco.

Why does this have to flow via Jordan and Syria? Existing pipeline infrastructure that doesn’t exist to flow directly from Israel to Lebanon?

Probably because they won't take it if it comes directly from Israel.

IINM Lebanon has a law stating that if a citizen ever steps foot in Israel, that person can never return to Lebanon. The only exception they ever made was for Carlos Ghosn when he came to Israel for the Better Place venture, and till this say he's still being critizied in Lebanon for that.

Does that law have an official carve out for terrorists/soldiers?

I guess incursions from Lebanon are less likely as it’s an easier border to seal, but I didn’t realize never was the correct answer here.
