Israel PM Bennett Says Middle East Is Changing

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said that growing friendship with Bahrain and other countries in the region, is a clear indication of profound changes in the Middle East.  

Speaking with Bahrain students on Tuesday during his official visit to the Gulf country, Bennett said that Israel has “chosen cooperation over conflict,” and “hope over hostility,” and “friendship over fear.”

Bennett told the students that he is the first Israeli Prime Minister to officially visit the magnificent Kingdom of Bahrain and met with King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and the Crown Prince and Prime Minister.

He termed his visit to Bahrain as an incredible change which is taking place in the Middle East.

Bennett furthered that religion in the Middle East no longer needs to be defined by “brutality and extremism.”

“For the like-minded leaders of the Abraham Accords, our faith was the glue that healed the wounds of our past, and strengthened the connection between us,” Bennett added.

Bennett said Israel’s relation with the Middle East is not based on only declarations, but it’s on real “connections between people-to-people. “

“Together, we are creating a new reality in the Middle East that will greatly benefit our people, our countries and the entire region,” Bennett added.

Bennett furthered, “We must seize the momentum of the historic Abraham accords. We must make the most of the opportunity we’ve been given.”
