Israeli Ties to the Arab World

Please pray for improvement in Israel’s relations with Arab nations. The conflict is continually changing, sometimes better and sometimes for worst but we are praying for a season of better relations with the Arab world. In 1949, Turkey became the first Muslim country to recognize Israel. In the 1950s and ‘60s, the country was able to reach beyond the hostile Arab states to build relations with Iran. Jerusalem also developed relations with many African states, after a wave of independence swept the continent in 1960. There were major breakthroughs with the peace agreements with Egypt in 1979 and Jordan in 1994. In the 1990s, relations improved with Bahrain, Morocco, Tunisia, Oman and Qatar. Relations have since gotten both tougher and in some ways better.
