The agreement with Bahrain allowed Saudi Arabia – the ultimate price of Israel`s openness to normalization – to follow this example. Bahrain`s Sunni monarchy is closely allied with Saudi Arabia, which helped quell a popular uprising led by the island state`s Shiite majority in 2011. Saudi Arabia tacitly conceded to the UAE deal and opened its airspace to commercial flights between Israel and the UAE. Maneuvers are needed to reach this agreement. But while the look of Tuesday`s event will be reminiscent of the rupture agreements that ended decades of war between Israel and neighboring Egypt and Jordan and launched the peace process with the Palestinians, the reality is quite different. For nearly two decades, the United States has expressly supported a two-state solution that calls for separate Israeli and Palestinian states, with borders similar to those that existed before the 1967 war, including the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, and parts of East Jerusalem. The Clinton parameters provided the outlines of the creation of a Palestinian state and the resolution of other final status issues. George W. Bush was the first U.S.
president to publicly support a Palestinian state represented in the 2003 road map for peace presented by the United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United Nations. The Obama administration has also tried to advance a two-state solution, but talks failed in 2014 over disagreements over colonization, the release of Palestinian prisoners and other issues. In 2016, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Kerry outlined the principles of a two-state solution based on these final status discussions. The stated purpose of the Trump peace plan is to outline the terms of an agreement to be signed by both sides in order to end the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians and clarify all claims of both sides to the conflict. The proponents of the proposal believe that achieving such a solution would give the Palestinians the right to be self-reliant while denying them any power that could pose a threat to Israel.  The successful solution will be to operate direct flights between the State of Israel and its neighbors.
