(Worthy News) – The signing of a security memorandum of understanding between Israel and Bahrain on Thursday comes amid growing threats from Iran against the two countries and as the United States shifts its focus away from the region and toward the brewing conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
Though the United States remains an active player in the Middle East — as evidenced by its successful operation against Islamic State leader Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi in northern Syria overnight Wednesday — countries in the region understand that Washington, for the time being, has its interests elsewhere and must work together more against Tehran.
“We must strengthen the ‘moderate camp,’ and there is such a thing,” Defense Minister Benny Gantz said Thursday after signing the MOU, referring to Western-aligned Arab countries. “Our formal relations allow us to come in and work together against shared threats. We are only in our first year of the Abraham Accords — in the coming decade there will be significant developments.” [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
