(Ynet News) In yet another sign of warming relations between Israel and India, the two countries recently signed an agreement allowing Israel to launch a sophisticated spying satellite from Indian territory. [...]
The agreement is beneficial for Israel because of cheaper expenses and the prospect of improved military cooperation and warmer diplomatic relations with India.
With the rest of the world trying to figure out how to restrain Iran, Israel seems to be positioning itself by not only helping out allies economically, but militarily as well. Although such news may not surprise some, it seems that Israel has succeeded in not only improving relations amongst its allies but also with a long time rival of theirs--Saudi Arabia.
(Ynet News) Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia was officially
accepted to the World Trade Organization, capping 12 years of negotiations slowed by RiyadhÂs adherence to a decision by the Arab League to boycott Israel.
The membership means that Saudi Arabia will open its markets to foreign investors and will abide by the rules of the WTO which include "not having a boycott against anyone else inside the organization," including Israel.
It seems that the economic doors are finally opening up towards this tiny Jewish state, who has long been viewed as a "major stumbling block" towards peace by diplomats around the world. With Saudi Arabia's official close of the boycott, Israel may soon find itself in another market and hopefully will be able to display that its existence is not a threat towards Saudi citizens, something desperately needed in order to bring about peace within that region.
