(RepublicanPress.org) – Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu along with representatives of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Bahrain signed a normalization agreement during a White House ceremony hosted by President Donald Trump on September 18, 2020. As media outlets reported at the time, the agreement would provide promise for future trade and more.
On November 8, that prediction came true when the first commercial flight carrying tourists from Israel landed in Dubai, the UAE’s most populous city known for its luxurious Dubai Mall.
WOW! The first flight carrying Israeli tourists to the United Arab Emirates landed Sunday in the city-state of Dubai, the latest sign of the normalization deal reached between the two nations. https://t.co/vKI75qsO8J

In the early evening on November 8, the plane landed at Dubai’s international airport, marking the lastest benefit of September’s deal. Hussein Suleiman, the head of a delegation of Arab businessmen on the flight, hailed the opportunity, telling reporters the normalization of relations would be a net good to the region.
With all the recent focus on politics at home, it’s easy to overlook the Trump administration’s tremendous progress in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world. As Fox News recently reported, it’s easy to see why President Trump was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize earlier this year.
