Rabbi Marc Schneier predicts Gulf reconciliation will accelerate normalization

Updated: Jan 12, 2021

Rabbi Marc Schneier, an adviser to leaders in the Gulf, has said over the past month that he believed there will be more peace deals. In the wake of news on Monday evening that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were moving to heal the rift that began in 2017, he expressed hope that it could lead to more normalization deals with Israel.

“The reunification of the GCC will only accelerate the process of normalization between the remaining Gulf states and Israel. With a reunited GCC and the momentum on the side of Gulf-Israel normalization, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Oman and Kuwait will follow the lead of the UAE and Bahrain," he said.

Schneier has worked for peace and coexistence in the region for many years, is the president of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding. Last month he said: “For 12 years I’ve been working on this,” he said. “As someone who paved the way, I see this as two down and four to go in the Gulf. I won’t be content until I see Qataris, Saudis, Omanis and Kuwaitis join as well. Then you will see a transformation.” Read the report. See here also.
