In 2020, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan normalized their relations with Israel, the first Arab countries to do so since Jordan in 1994. What does this mean for the future of the Israeli-Palestinian relations? Will the Abraham Accords improve or worsen the prospects for Middle East Peace? And what should the Biden administration do in the aftermath of the agreements? A panel with Dr. Nir Boms and Dr. Najat Al-Saied
One election down and two or three to go – that is the score as US President Joe Biden gets used to sleeping above his new Oval Office, the political campaign in Israel heats up, Iran prepares its own presidential contest and Palestinian Authority head Mahmud Abbas also declares his decision to put his own position and his parliament up for a vote.
This is certainly a time of transition, of choosing leaders and of getting used to a mix of old and new faces.
It is also the right moment to take stock and consider Israel’s position vis-a-vis the Arab world.
