I've Been Thinking:
According to the Israeli daily newspaper, Haaretz a remarkable event happened recently in Washington DC.
At a dinner for the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs the Israeli and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) ambassadors were seated together. Also there was the Egyptian ambassador.
Yousef al Otaiba of the UAE and Ron Dermer of Israel spoke to each other at the event.
It should be clear that the thaw between Israel and some Arab countries is real. A year ago this meeting would have happened - but it would have happened behind closed doors. Now it is done in public.
This is a major step forward.
