On Tuesday, an Israeli delegation led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will be at the White House to sign a pair of history-making agreements for the Middle East.

After reaching deals to normalize relations with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, Israel and its neighbors will sign the official paperwork in Washington.

The American Jewish Committee has been working for decades to build ties between Israel and Gulf nations. 

AJC Chief Policy Officer Jason Isaacson talked with KRLD's Chris Sommer, and explained why these important breakthroughs are happening now.
