Bahraini calls for Mideast org including Israel

It was a rare call for Arab countries to create a broad grouping alongside Israel and Iran. Egypt and Jordan are the only Arab nations that have peace deals with Israel and have diplomatic relations with the Jewish state. Other Arab nations have said they won't establish ties with Israel until it signs peace deals with the Palestinians and Syria.

In case you missed this, Bahrain also recently appointed a Jewish female as US Ambassador.

Ambassador Huda Nunu, is a member of a small Arab Jewish community that numbers only 37 people. What makes this appointment even more remarkable is that the appointment was made by a conservative Muslim Arab state in the most conservative Muslim region of the world.
