Statement on Israel-Bahrain normalisation of relations

The Australian Reform/Progressive Zionist Association (ARZA), the Assembly of Rabbis and Cantors of Australia, New Zealand and Asia (ARC), Netzer Australia, and the Union for Progressive Judaism (UPJ) join in welcoming a further historic announcement of the normalisation of relations between Israel and Bahrain following the recent normalisation agreement with the United Arab Emirates.
This additional significant agreement is the culmination of continuing efforts by Israel, the United States and other countries to bring peace, security and economic stability to the Middle East through the normalisation of relations between Israel and the Arab States.
It is hoped that even more Arab States will join with Israel, the UAE and Bahrain in this quest for peace and stability.
