The staging of the event seemed intent on invoking the scene in the same place more than 25 years ago, when President Bill Clinton brokered a deal – and an iconic handshake – between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestinian leader Yasir Arafat. Mr. Trump said that “there will be peace in the Middle East,” a phrase that typically proposes a solution to Israel`s conflict with the Palestinians. After the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993, the Palestinians gained limited autonomy in a scattered mosaic of small west Bank territories.  This was followed by a round of negotiations, suspension, mediation, resumption of negotiations and suspension. A number of agreements were reached until the Oslo process ended after the failure of the Camp David summit in 2000 and the outbreak of the Second Intifada.   “The State of Israel and the Republic of Sudan have agreed to make peace,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu greeted Trump on the phone for the result and said, “We are expanding the circle of peace so quickly with your leaders.” Trump replied, “There are many, many more to come.” But the deal with Sudan is probably more important. The United Arab Emirates and Bahrain were not at war with Israel when they signed their agreements; Sudan and Israel have been. In other words, while the first two pacts were normalization agreements, this one could be more accurately described with Sudan as a peace agreement.
Maneuvers are needed to reach this agreement. “It`s not a solution to the conflict and it`s not peace – it`s a business,” said Jeremy Ben-Ami, the chairman of J Street, a pro-Israel liberal interest group that criticizes Netanyahu. “It is very, very clear that there are common interests between Israel and these countries – military, security, diplomatic, economic – and those interests have existed for two decades.” The Trump Peace Plan (officially titled “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People”) is a proposal by the Trump administration to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Donald Trump officially unveiled the plan at a White House press briefing with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on January 28, 2020, although no Palestinian Authority was invited to negotiate.  “It is difficult to identify a single point of progress in relation to Israeli-Palestinian peace, which is the result of the US intervention,” noted Grace Wermenbol of the Middle East Institute. “Trump`s supernatural pro-Israel policies have aliened the Palestinian Authority and called into question the ability of the United States to play the role of impartial mediator. Apart from a clear diplomatic reassessment of the Palestinian cause, it is unlikely that the normalization of the UAE`s relations with Israel will offer little more. The announcement follows agreements brokered by the Trump administration between Israel and the United Arab Emirates in August and Bahrain last month.
Before that, Israel`s last peace agreement with an Arab country was in 1994 with Jordan (it signed one with Egypt in 1979). .
