Israel’s Prime Minister Naftali Bennett suddenly left for a visit to Bahrain on Monday. This is the first visit by an Israeli Prime Minister to Bahrain. The special thing is that no one had any information about this tour beforehand. At the last moment it became clear that Bennett would land in Manama, the capital of Bahrain. This tour is for one day only. Bennett will meet King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, the Sultan of Bahrain, and Crown Prince-Prime Minister Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
What Bennett said
Before leaving, Bennett said – This tour is very special and exciting for me. We seek solidarity against threats by cooperating in this area of ours. Bennett and Salman also met during the climate conference in November. Bennett was then invited by the Crown Prince to visit Bahrain. He will meet the Crown Prince on Tuesday.
Israel and the UAE recognized Israel under the Abraham Accord in September 2020 when Donald Trump was the US President. Although Israel and Saudi Arabia also have relations, but Saudi has not yet formally recognized Israel.
Jewish Community in Bahrain In
August 2021, 50 Jews prayed at the Synagogue, a Jewish shrine in Bahrain’s capital Manama. It was the first time in 74 years that Jews had gathered in one place in Bahrain. During this, Israeli diplomats were also present.
In December, Bennett also visited the UAE. This was also the first visit by an Israeli Prime Minister to the UAE. In September, Israeli Foreign Minister Yar Lepid also visited Bahrain. Then there was the inauguration of the Israeli Embassy.
In September, Israel’s Foreign Minister Yair Lepid visited Bahrain.
Where is the eye
Israel, UAE, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the rest of the Gulf countries have a common enemy. And that is Iran. It is believed that all the Gulf countries want to use Israel against Iran, because these countries do not have a powerful intelligence agency and army like Israel. America is currently focusing more against China, so Iran’s answer is being understood to Israel.
