President Trump`s “Deal of the Century” to make peace between Israel and the Palestinians is a non-launcher. The new peace agreements thus address a critical gap in Israel`s previous agreements with Egypt and Jordan. Of course, the historic peace agreement reached in 1979 with Egypt remains an unassailable reference to ending the Arab-Israeli wars by removing the Arab world`s most populous and powerful nation from the conflict. Without this decisive change, no further agreement would have been possible between Israel and its Arab neighbours. But this peace – and its 1994 successor with Jordan – remains a cold peace, limited to strong security coordination and a series of economic agreements. Depending on the survival of regimes of dubious longevity, such peace is constantly vulnerable to regional and internal vicissitudes. Joe Biden, Trump`s opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential election, welcomed the agreement because it “builds on the efforts of several governments to promote broader Arab-Israeli openness, including the Obama Biden administration`s efforts to build on the Arab peace initiative.”  In Somaliland, bashe Omar Awil, sent to Kenya, welcomed the normalization between the two countries. This is a key example of the importance of bilateral cooperation for regional stability.
  Jared Kushner, senior adviser to the President of the United States, condemned Kuwait`s position. However, according to Al Jazeera, his conviction was widely shared on the Internet as positive.  However, the Government of Kuwait itself has remained silent on the agreement. On 18 August, 37 Kuwaiti MPs asked them to condemn the agreement.  Two days earlier, the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Qabas, citing unnamed government sources, had indicated that the Kuwaiti government`s position vis-à-vis Israel was unchanged.  Many technical details remain in the air and the volatility of the region is not a source of comfort. But despite the reservations and outstanding issues, the Emirati and Bahrain agreements with Israel remain quite revolutionary. They launched decades of stifling status quo and sterile political orthodoxies that failed to advance the cause of real and positive peace – not just the absence of conflict – for war-weary residents in the region. The agreements change society and show how regional geopolitics has changed dramatically.
