Here is the text of the Bahrain-Israel declaration of peace, in which they agree to establish diplomatic relations and reach agreements to cooperate in various economic sectors, health and the environment - whitehouse.gov/briefings-stat…
They agree to eschew threats and the use of force, which should be easy as they have absolutely zero history of using threats of force against each other.
On the Palestinians it simply says they commit to “continuing the efforts to achieve a just, comprehensive, and enduring resolution of the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.”
Not “strengthen” or “renew” or “redouble”, but “continue” the existing efforts. Just to remind you, the existing efforts don’t involve any talks with the Palestinians.
Again there’s no mention of the two state solution, international law, UN resolutions or previous agreements on the Palestinian issue. Whereas the Bahrain king’s public position has been that Bahrain is still committed to a two state solution: bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
The Bahrain FM also said yesterday Bahrain’s aim was to intensify efforts to resolve the Is-Pal conflict in the framework of the Arab Peace Initiative: timesofisrael.com/liveblog-septe…

With the naming of Sayyid Haitham as the new Sultan of Oman, the long-standing uncertainty over Oman’s succession is gone. But inevitably; as Oman’s sole ruler in the fifty years since independence, Sultan Qaboos is a hard act to follow.
The new Sultan inherits a host of economic challenges as Oman struggles to wean itself from its traditional dependence on oil-fuelled public spending, and faces entrenched high expectations that the state will provide jobs and services for the youth.
In recent years Oman has come under pressure from some neighbours to be more aligned with their foreign policy, instead of maintaining the approach of neutrality and non-intervention that has served it for 50 years.
