Trump a Mediator Between Saudi Arabia and Israel?
The visit of the US President to Saudi Arabia and Israel has many interesting components. The focus is on the signed deals with El-Riyad worth $ 280 billion (especially the military component of these transactions), agreements reached with the countries of the Arab Gulf Cooperation Council (Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Oman) and in particular, the idea of creating an "Arab NATO", as well as holding of the US-Islamic World summit and Trump's main messages to the Islamic world.
In such a great number of topics, there are also reports of a possible reconciliation between Saudi Arabia and Israel. Even before Trump's visit, The Wall Street Journal published a report that Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf countries have prepared a proposal for Israel. It assumes unprecedented steps on the part of Arab countries to reconcile with Israel, if Tel Aviv makes some concessions to Palestine, for example, freezing the settlement activity in some areas of the West Coast. This is written by the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.
According to the report, the pioneers of the proposal are Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (by the way, the UAE has also renewed its military contract with the United States). The Israeli press writes that, despite the silence of the Arab media, it is clear that the proposal was also discussed with the United States.
The visit of Donald Trump to the region became an occasion for many, who insist on the correctness of this version. And there were a lot of signals to testify this. In particular, Trump for the first time arrived in Israel from Saudi Arabia by a direct flight, which was previously considered impossible. In addition, during the talks with Israeli President Reuven Rivlin, Trump noted that "there is a growing understanding among Arab neighbors of Israel that they have a common cause with Tel Aviv," Tass reports.
A few years ago it gradually became clear that the Iranian factor was becoming a connecting link for Israel and the Arab Gulf monarchies. The rivalry between Shiite Iran and the Arab Gulf countries has long-standing roots. And now, after the signing of the nuclear agreement, the Gulf countries have to take measures to prevent the spread of Iranian influence in the region. Almost the same goal is pursued by Israel. It is this fact that brings Israel closer to the Arab monarchies.
It is noteworthy that according to experts, the possible reconciliation of Israel and Saudi Arabia is completely within the framework of Trump's policy to achieve success stories, and accordingly, the mediation of Trump is considered quite possible.
