It was in Khartoum in 1967 that the Arab League met and stated the three nos. No peace with Israel. No recognition of Israel. No negotiation with Israel.
A Israeli delegation recently flew to Khartoum on direct flight from Jerusalem. The world has changed. think about this. It was the peace accord with Egypt in 1979 that was the breakthrough that changed everything. Sadat was condemned as traitor by the Arab League was murdered but the truce has survived regime changes in Egypt.
It was 15 years later in 1994 that another Arab state Jordan recognized Israel when King Huessein signed a peace accord.
It is 26 years later and would anyone have thought possible that three Arab states would recognize in a matter of months? That would have seemed impossible not long ago.
Lets see what becomes of Bibis meeting in Saudi Arabia. That may lead to even more.

We just made a free trade treaty with India. They are in conflict with pakistan. Recognition is always good but do we need relations with Pakistan?
Was thinking the same...
But what is the subcontext, what was the Pakistani reaction?

Maybe we underestimate our potential.
What do we know about India and Pakistan? That they're enemies?
Not sure I know enough about their situation to say where the winds blow.

That's the thing, world is changing.
I wouldn't mind to see an Israeli PM at the signing of THEIR normalizaion.

"We"? The US has a history of reneging on treaties- wonder if our "allies" approve?

trade with all, ally with none- from men a lot more intellectual than the Empty Suits of the world today- or message board acolytes of the church of godvernment-

Correct. Israel/India a must. Pakistan also would be nice but not needed. So great to have nuclear Israel/India united with Iran in checkmate between them.

All excellent. The world is learning. If you can't work for a Middle East peace with the Palestinians, do so around them & LET THERE BE PEACE ALREADY!
