From Monday, the US Secretary of State will visit several countries in the Middle East. This is US foreign policy, hoping to sell weapons, fighter jets and to find more partners for Israel. This is to the satisfaction of allies of Israel and Jewish Americans for supporting Donald Trump. The US diplomat will begin a visit to Jerusalem on Monday before leaving for the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Sudan. Through Mike Pompeo’s visit to the Middle East, Israel hopes that other Arab countries will sign an agreement with Israel, following the example of the United Arab Emirates.
The agreement will lead to trade, the sale of UAE oil to Israel, the transfer of advanced technology from Israel to the UAE, and an increase in the number of tourists and direct flights between Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Dubai and Abou Dhabi.
For the United States, this is US foreign policy that satisfies Israel’s allies and persuades Jewish Americans to support Donald Trump for the upcoming presidential election, because most of the Jews in the United States are rich.
Another US interest is in selling fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates and Israel is the F-15 and F-35 fighter jets, which are technological warfare weapons and the most modern. In the Middle East, only Israel has an F-35. No other country. Therefore, Israel’s position is that it does not want the United States to sell the F-35 fighter jets to the United Arab Emirates.
But according to analysts, if the United Arab Emirates can make Israel happy, for example, help persuade other Arab countries to come the agreement with Israel. Bahrain, Oman and Sudan are the countries Israel hopes to have a series of agreements with.
