Update: August 29, 2020: The president of the U.A.E. issued a decree, formally abolishing a law that boycotted Israel since 1972. This came exactly 123 years to the day since the First Zionist Congress in 1897 which called for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. The UAE is only the third Arab country behind Egypt and Jordan to create a peace treaty with Israel.
Update: September 5, 2020: Following on from the Israel-UAE peace deal, on September 4, Donald Trump announced that Serbia would shift its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and Kosovo would recognise Israel as a state. Kosovo will also establish an embassy in Jerusalem, according to Benjamin Netanyahu and the president of Kosovo. One day later on September 5, the new president of Malawi, Lazarus Chakwera, announced that they too would establish a diplomatic mission in Jerusalem. This came exactly 70 days since it was announced that he had won the presidency on June 27.
Update: September 11, 2020: Donald Trump announced that Bahrain would normalise ties with Israel, and join the UAE in signing a peace deal on September 15 at the White House with Benjamin Netanyahu. The peace deal will be signed exactly 33 days since announcing the UAE peace deal on August 13.
On June 25, 2020, Bahrain hosted a two-day workshop to promote the cause of the Palestinian people, led by the United States. Exactly seven weeks later on August 13, the peace deal between Israel and the UAE was announced.
Update: September 15, 2020: Israel, Bahrain and the UAE sign peace accords at the White House in Washington D.C., exactly 7 weeks out from the U.S. election on November 3.
Update: October 2, 2020: On October 1, 33 days out from the U.S. election, Donald Trump announced that his close aide, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for the coronavirus, and that he and the First Lady would start a quarantine process. Hours later, Donald Trump announced via Twitter that both he and Melania had tested positive for the coronavirus.
There is an interesting parallel here. Donald Trump tested positive for the coronavirus at the beginning of the 14th day of the 1st month in the Jewish civil calendar (14 Tishrei), 33 days out from the election on a full moon. Jesus Christ was crucified on the 14th day of the 1st month in the Jewish religious calendar (14 Nisan), on or around a full moon, at approximately 33 years old! What does it mean? Who knows! It was just an interesting observation.
Earlier on October 1, Lebanon confirmed that it would hold U.S.-brokered talks with Israel about their disputed maritime border. Another diplomatic breakthrough for the White House.
Update: October 23, 2020: Eleven days out from the election, Donald Trump announced that Israel and Sudan have agreed to normalise relations with each other. This marks the third Arab country to do so in 71 days!
