In case you did not notice … Trump gets third peace treaty for Israel

One of the most monumental new developments in the troubled Middle East is maliciously ignored by the Trump-hating eastern – mostly New York – media conglomerate.  It is the signing of a peace treaty between Sudan and Israel – the third nation to recognize the legitimacy – the right to exist — of the Israeli State.

Trump has had the most successful foreign policy in terms of the Middle East than any modern President.  He has literally done what most said could not be done.  Of course, they said it could not be done because that failed over and over again in that region.

Sudan is the third Arab nation to recognize Israel due to the work of the Trump administration – with kudos to White House aide and son-in-law Jared Kushner and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.  It was not long ago that the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain had signed a similar peace agreement.

The Sudan agreement is particularly notable because unlike the UAE and Bahrain, Sudan had once been in an official state of war against Israel.

These peace treaties are more than symbolic.  They will open trade and travel —  adding greatly to the stability of the region.  They are also a blow to Iran’s and Russia’s efforts to expand influence throughout the Arab world.

The Trump policy exposes the flaw in the old diplomacy that saw the creation of a Palestinian state as a prerequisite to any stability.  The pro-Arab policies of the Obama administration greatly imperiled the security of Israel.

The possibility of a Palestinian state is not off the table.  It is just that the Palestinian leaders – who thought they could use the terrorism of Hamas and others to achieve their goals – had played their hand badly.  The Palestinian leaders never gave up their goal to bring down Israel.  They put themselves in a no-win position – and they lost.

It is likely that other Arab states will sign agreements recognizing the legitimacy of Israel.  With each signing, greater stability comes to the Middle East.

It is hard to imagine that any Jewish voter who cares about the security of Israel would vote for the folks who put that security in danger.  There should have been cheering in the streets – but thanks to the morally, politically and intellectually corrupt news media, this important issue will be buried.

So, there ‘tis.

    Are you kidding me? We are just a couple of weeks away from an election, an election that the Democrats and their propaganda arm (the media, both social and mainstream) has lied cheated and suppressed Trump positive actions to aide the addled old shit who is running against Trump. This corrupt group would literally kill anybody who tried to publicize any win by the president. At this point if Trump achieved world peace they would bury it until after the election-then if Biden the Addled won he could immediately take credit for a stellar improvement to life on earth. Neither the Democrats nor their slavish media are worth the powder it would take to blow them to hell. Journalism? Not in America today.

    Larry, Unfortunately for middle-easterners none of these peace treaties make any difference to the them. War has not been a probability for any of these countries, and they have been dealing with Israel for years. Peace with the Palestinians is the only thing that matters, and using Trump’s Jewish son-in-law for this purpose was a non-starter, totally dumb-never would they accept him as a negotiator. Also stupid was dumbshit giving away the prize of moving the embassy to Jerusalem and getting nothing in return. Hardly the way to work toward peace with the Palestinians. So, despite the fact that trump eagerly did things to try and appease Jewish voters in the US, he did nothing for peace in the Middle East. Your understanding of the situation is obviously skewed by your desire to make it sound like trump actually achieved something. So there tis.
