via Israel joins Arab states at historic White House meeting

On Tuesday, Israeli representatives met with their counterparts from five Arab countries with whom the Jewish state currently has no formal diplomatic relations to discuss improving the lives of Gaza Strip residents.

While representatives of Egypt and Jordan also attended, the Palestinian Authority boycotted the meeting, refusing to participate in any manner.

“Thank you for putting all tensions aside to work with us,” tweeted President Donald Trump’s Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt. “Everyone left politics at the door and focused on practical solutions.”
