As Israel celebrates diplomatic success in the Gulf, are we seeing a more unified Middle East?

Israel is the only Jewish state in a region made up almost entirely of Arab nations, and since Israel’s independence from Great Britain in 1948, allies in the Arab Middle East have been few and far between for the Jewish State. Nevertheless, there have been several signs of late that the winds are shifting, as more Arab countries than ever are now warming to Israel.

On Friday 26 October, it emerged that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had made an historic official state visit to Oman, accompanied by his wife Sara and a delegation of government and security officials which included the director of Mossad Yossi Cohen and the Foreign Ministry director-general Yuval Rotem. Netanyahu was received by the Sultan of Oman, Qaboos bin Said, and the two leaders discussed “ways to advance the peace process in the Middle East” and other issues of “joint interest”.
