West forgives Omar al-Bashir's war crimes as he joins Israeli-allied Moderate Arabs

"The surprising dialogue that has arisen surrounding Israel-Sudan relations is likely due to the dramatic developments in the Middle East over the last few months." "Sudan was one of the first countries to join the war against the Houthi rebels in Yemen," "It is not inconceivable that Sudan's actions are a means of winning financial rewards from Saudi Arabia and that it is interested in normalizing ties with Israel in order to improve its financial situation."
