An Israeli website quoted political sources as saying that several countries could conclude agreements to normalize relations with Israel in exchange for benefits “distributed by the outgoing US President Donald Trump.”
According to sources, the Ynet website stated that more countries will announce agreements with Israel before Trump’s term expires next month, “perhaps to take advantage of the benefits that the outgoing president distributes in return.”
According to the Hebrew website, according to Israeli officials, after the White House announced the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Israel and Morocco, other countries will announce the normalization of relations with Tel Aviv under President Donald Trump, which will end on January 20.
I note in this context that in addition to the recognition of Western Sahara, it became evident that the United States would also sell advanced drones to Morocco, while the Moroccan monarch, King Mohammed VI issued a statement stressing that “the agreements will not affect our position on the Palestinian issue.”
About an hour after the agreement was announced, Reuters news agency announced that the United States was negotiating the sale of at least four large and advanced drones to Morocco and that discussions with members of Congress would take place in the coming days about the deal.
It is reported that the four aforementioned aircraft will be an “MQ-9B SkyGuardian”, with a range of 11,000 kilometers, allowing it to survey vast areas of the sea and desert.
The Israeli website said that Trump’s method in this regard is to give important and unprecedented promises to Islamic or Arab countries in exchange for establishing relations with Israel, noting that he “gave the UAE F-35 planes, removed Sudan from the list of countries supporting terrorism, and Morocco recognized the annexation of Western Sahara. And maybe even advanced drones. ”
He attributed the activities taking place in this field to the US President’s desire to achieve the largest possible number of diplomatic achievements before the end of his term, indicating that Israel expects that “another country or two will soon announce the normalization of relations with Israel. It is possible that the Sultanate of Oman will be in the country.” “The Gulf has been visited by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the past. It is also in contact with Islamic countries in Africa such as Niger, Mauritania, Mali, and Djibouti. Other options include Islamic countries in Asia such as Indonesia, the largest Muslim country in the world, and the small Sultanate of Brunei.”
The Israeli website report touched on Saudi Arabia, and considered that it may not be currently included in the list, “because it cannot, as a protector of the holy sites, bear the public embrace of Israel.”
And based on estimates, the author concluded that “the Saudis will wait for the Biden era before embarking on such a dramatic step.”
The report used the words of Trump’s advisor and son-in-law, Jared Kushner, that “normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia is inevitable,” while Trump and his advisers were quoted as saying, after the agreements with the UAE, Bahrain, and Sudan, that Israel will normalize relations with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and commented indicating that Saudi Arabia in return On all agreements in a calm and indirect way. ”
