The United Arab Emirates and Israel are poised to sign a historic agreement. What are the implications? David Rubin (, former mayor of Shiloh, Israel joins us from his home there. He looks at both the strategic and economic implications of the agreement, focusing on the constant threat from Iran and the financial impact of partnering with the Middle East's only democracy. Mr. Shiloh discusses how President Trump's other deals in the Middle East have taken a different path than his predecessor's deals and how any deal must be focused on peace and not on specific people groups. He also shares his work as founder of the Shiloh Israel Children's Fund.
