Joe Biden says Donald Trump might ‘accidentally’ bring peace to the Middle East

September 12, 2020

Lost in the shuffle last week, and largely ignored in the media, was the news that Donald Trump brokered an agreement between the UAE and Israel which will begin the process of normalization between the two countries.

Despite this not being big news in the United States for some reason, (and we know what that reason is…) it still earned worldwide recognition and led to another Nobel Peace Prize nomination for the President. Here is more on the deal:

The agreement, called the Abraham Accord, will lead to diplomatic normalization between the two countries, starting with an exchange of ambassadors, then leading to further agreements in technology, security, health care, and other critical areas. Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and Middle East–peace consigliere, said during the press briefing to expect flights from Dubai and Abu Dhabi to Tel Aviv, creating greater interfaith exchange.

The deal will also ease domestic political pressures in the two countries. To cement Emirati support for the agreement, the Netanyahu government has agreed to freeze its plans to “declare sovereignty” over West Bank settlements.

This is just the latest in a string of victories for the Trump administration in an attempt to bring peace to the Middle East. Since recognizing Jerusalem as the official capital of Israel here is a list of some of Donald Trump’s other accomplishments in the region:

First there was the United Arab Emirates (UAE), which is establishing “full normalization” with the Jewish state, and will formalize an agreement at the White House later this month.

Then there was Kosovo, which is establishing relations with Israel and putting an embassy in Jerusalem under the terms of a deal brokered by the Trump administration last week.

Then Chad, a majority-Muslim nation, announced earlier this week that it will be putting an embassy in Jerusalem. Saudi Arabia announced that it will allow Israeli commercial flights above its airspace — not just to Dubai, but to all eastbound destinations.

And on Friday — the 19th anniversary of 9/11 — Bahrain announced that it, too, would normalize relations with Israel. It was a profound statement of peace, defying the efforts of terrorists to set the world on a path to endless religious war.

And this is just the beginning:

Other nations, too, are stepping forward to improve ties with Israel: Serbia is moving its embassy to Jerusalem as part of the Serbia-Kosovo agreement, and the African nation of Malawi is following suit.

The acceptance of a Jewish State in the Middle East by its Muslim and Arab neighbors is emboldening other countries to develop the closer links with Israel they have long desired but which they have feared to forge.

More nations, both in the Middle East and beyond, are likely to follow suit in the coming weeks.

I believe quite a bit of this probably has to do with recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and pulling out of the Iran deal, because it made it clear that after years of not being serious the United States was finally going to align itself with Israel and stand strong behind that nation. That might be an over-simplification but I believe it played a role.

Despite all of this, Joe Biden cannot give the President credit in the Middle East so he basically claimed that Donald Trump might have blundered his way into peace in the Middle East.

“I think Trump is going to accidentally do something positive here, in terms of this issue of… other Arab states” acknowledging Israel, Biden said during a virtual fundraiser organized by the liberal, pro-Israel lobby J Street.

Joe Biden is mostly just upset about the President ripping up the Iran nuclear deal which was supposedly Barack Obama’s biggest foreign policy victory. You can believe what you want about this President, and you can think what you want about this President, but none of this has been an accident. Donald Trump has started the ball rolling toward peace in the Middle East and he deserves credit for it.

I am not naive enough to believe this is all going to hold, we have seen how volatile the region is, but this is a step in the right direction and hopefully this will be the beginning of a beautiful friendship…

    All things being equal, following Plugs rational, Trump blundered into pulling it of the Iran deal also. We can only imagine Biden would be runout of town on a rail if America ever came out if its Leftist induced stumper.

    Funny Joe saying that because it would ONLY be an accident if Joe could make a coherent statement.

    Of all the smaller pieces of the deal the one that impressed me the most is the Saudis allowing Israeli aircraft to officially fly through Saudi air space. That bit alone is a huge achievement.

    btw – Apologies for making the wrong call on Hillary at the convention. I still don’t think she’s sidelined, but I’m not sure what her plan is. There’s a recent video of her spewing hatred of Trump while Bill sits behind her and to the side, looking as if he’d rather be at his proctologist’s office. She’s still a player.

      This really is a huge deal but it is being ignored by the MSM and attacked by the Democrats. It is sad to think that this is where we are now as a country but it is so.
      I still believe we have not seen the last of Hillary either, she just cannot stay out of the spotlight.
