On yesterday's edition of The Ezra Levant Show, Ezra broke down the deal just struck between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The plan, known as the Abraham Accord, is expected to be fully signed off and finalized at some point in September.
Should that occur, the UAE will become just the third Arab nation to formally recognize Israel, with Egypt having signed an agreement in 1979 and Jordan in 1994.
The deal was certainly a surprise to Ezra, who said he recalled Trump bragging about striking the biggest peace deal — the deal of the century, as it were — and thinking to himself, “you know, some deals can't be done. These folks have been fighting literally since biblical times."
The Abraham Accord is expected to lead to greater cooperation on investment, tourism, security, technology, energy between Israel and the Emirates while the two countries take steps toward allowing direct passenger flights (potentially through Saudi airspace, no less), open embassies and exchange ambassadors for the first time.
Speaking about the shifting of allegiances in the region, Ezra said:
Both sides seem eager and excited. Peace, prosperity, getting over a hatred. You know, it takes energy to stay mad. Why would Israel and Dubai have any reason to be mad at each other? Why? Because Hamas or Iran wants them to? Iran and Turkey, which are both Islamist, hate this deal.
Look, I'm excited. Wouldn't it be great if peace broke out?
