The Bahrain-Israel agreement came as another shock to Palestinians who still didn't recover from the news of the UAE-Israel normalization.
Israelis are delighted the government has reached another peace deal with an Arab country, this time Bahrain, following last month's agreement with the United Arab Emirates.
Al-Thani did not criticize other Arab states for normalizing ties - the Qataris also have worked extensively with the Israelis and helped broker the latest cease-fire between Israel and Islamist group Hamas in Gaza.
And let's be real, without the prodding of Trump, without the love for Israel of Trump and without the perseverance of Trump this and other future deals that will keep Israel alive, the area in peace and Iran contained, would never have occurred. The UAE and Bahrain should also be allowed to express their justifications for establishing relations with Israel.
That hasn't stopped President Donald Trump from referring to the UAE deal, which was announced last month, as heralding a "previously unthinkable regional transformation".
But Ms Ahdeya Ahmed, head of the Bahrain Journalist Association, said the deal is "an awesome step and a very positive step towards the peace process".
Muslim scholar Ayatollah Sheikh Isa Qassim, who lives in Iran, said on Sunday he was against normalisation between Arab countries and Israel, in a statement published by dissolved Bahraini opposition party al-Wefaq, a group close to Qassim. That flight flew over Saudi Arabia's airspace, which they waived after 72 years. " Process started after Israel UAE peace deal In August, the Abraham Accord a peace deal between Israel and the UAE was signed".

Polls show Trump and Biden almost even in Pennsylvania, and Democrats hope to win the state back in the November 3 vote. The Trump campaign did not respond to requests for comment on whether it would do so.
The Arab media reports that Bahrain had threatened the Palestinians that if they insist on a clause condemning the normalization of relations with Israel, Bahrain would submit a counter-clause.
"None of us will ever visit Palestine unless it is freed and it is an independent state", he told AFP.
Palestinian Liberation Organization Secretary General Saeb Erekat said the decades-long Israeli-Palestinian conflict has to be resolved first before peace can be achieved. But we have tremendous enthusiasm for coming into the deal, he said.
It said the move was contrary to the commitments under the Arab Peace Initiative - which calls for Israel's complete withdrawal from the Palestinian territories occupied after 1967 - and the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation.
Bahrain's foreign minister said Palestinian rights remained a priority for the kingdom.
"You cannot simply ignore some five million Palestinians [living in the West Bank and Gaza] but to solve their problem you need mediators and I believe that Bahrain and the UAE can fill that role and bring Palestinians the economic hope and peace that they have been longing for".
