After a long hiatus, this site is back to discuss the digital sphere here in the Middle East and around the world.

As we all know, technology is changing on an almost daily basis, and reshaping how we think not just about the tools around us, but about language, culture and the world around us.

The Middle East is even more important than it was when we first started this blog. More attenion is being focused on the region and with Abraham Accords signed between Israel and The United Arab Emirates in Washington DC, the future for the region is even brighter.

More from The National:

“I stand here today to extend a hand of peace and receive a hand of peace.”

With those words, the UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed, addressed a high-level audience of several hundred gathered on the south lawn of the White House to witness the historic signing of a peace accord between Israel and the UAE.

Last month, the US-brokered Abraham Accord was agreed to during a call between Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, President Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Bahrain later agreed its own accord with Israel.

Sheikh Abdullah, the Bahraini Foreign Minister Dr Abdullatif Al Zayani and Mr Netanyahu were in Washington on Tuesday to formally sign documents paving the way for full normalisation of relations between Israel and the two Arab countries.

“We are already witnessing a change in the heart of the Middle East, a change that will send hope around the world,” Sheikh Abdullah, who first spoke in English before switching to Arabic for much of his speech, said on Tuesday.

“We are witnessing today a new trend that will create a better path for the Middle East.”

As mentioned in The National:

“The UAE has a cultural vision for peace in the Middle East.”

We are pleased to be back and the future is bright.
