Here’s more:

TIMES OF ISRAEL – US President Donald Trump is expected to announce on Friday that Bahrain is joining the United Arab Emirates in normalizing ties with Israel, two officials familiar with the matter told The Times of Israel.

According to the officials, Trump will make the announcement at the White House at 1 p.m. Eastern time. It was not immediately clear whether Bahrain will join the formal signing of the so-called UAE-Israel Abraham Accord at the White House on September 15, or simply issue a statement about its intention to establish relations with Israel.

The kingdom of Bahrain, a tiny island nation close to the UAE and Saudi Arabia, has been expected to be the next country to establish relations with Israel, as it has long made public overtures to the Jewish state.

Trump hinted during a Thursday press conference that another country may join Israel and the UAE for their normalization signing ceremony at the White House.

“Next week at the White House we’ll be having a signing between the UAE and Israel, and we could have another country added into that. And I will tell you that countries are lining up that want to go into it,” Trump said during a White House press briefing.

“You’ll be hearing other countries coming in over a relatively short period of time. And you could have peace in the Middle East,” he said.

I know Bahrain is tiny, but it’s great to see another Muslim country in the Persian Gulf normalize ties with Israel. Some are saying that Saudi Arabia gave the green light for Bahrain to do this, so they could be next.

I’m sure, however, the media will find a way to play this down so that it doesn’t help Trump all that much in the upcoming election.
