Remember when we had a real President, and peace was breaking out all over the Middle East....something no previous President could accomplish.

Now, Democrats are back and so is internecine warfare.



But.....

"Analysts: Arab states are ‘washing their hands’ of Palestinians

Practical governments are seeking mutually beneficial relations with Israel.

In what proved to be a snapshot of professional views of the Arab-Israeli conflict on the eve of war, Georgetown University adjunct professor and Middle East Institute (MEI) senior fellow Khaled Elgindy concluded that the “Arab world is sort of washing their hands” of the Palestinian cause during a May 3 MEI webinar. He agreed with his fellow panelists addressing “Arab-Israeli Normalization: A Viable Avenue Towards Peace?” that America and Arab states are prioritizing practical self-interests over an increasingly failed, violent Palestinian state project.

The panelists examined the implications of Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan and the United Arab Emirates establishing normal diplomatic relations with Israel during former President Donald Trump’s final months in office. These agreements initiated by Bahrain and UAE’s Abraham Accords have become only more remarkable in the days following the panel.

The Iranian-supported Hamas terror group in Gaza renewed rocket attacks against Israel on May 10, firing thousands of rockets at Tel Aviv and other Israeli civilian population centers. Israel retaliated with airstrikes and artillery. UAE officials warned Hamas of sanctions if its campaign persists.


These Arab state recognitions of Israel “robbed the Palestinians of one of the very few points of leverage that they had vis-à-vis Israel,” noted Elgindy."




Can I get an "amen"!!!!

"...Gulf states seemed more interested in military alliances among themselves and with Israel to counter threats like Iran,..."
Ibid.


In a way, this can be seen as a number of nations admitting publicly what they said privately.....that Hussein Obama was a fool and a danger to the world.
Now, they can act in a way that Trump made possible.


The state press had always hidden the laughter that Obama provoked.



"Elgindy additionally cited the practical realities that facilitated Israel’s relations with Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan and the UAE. Unlike Egypt and Jordan, which made peace agreements with Israel in 1979 and 1994, respectively, this Arab quartet had never engaged in military hostilities with Israel. Correspondingly, several of these states have had “under-the-table relations with the Israelis anyway” and now merely “are consecrating an existing geopolitical order.”

"Yet even before Hamas’s latest jihad, Elgindy correctly faulted Palestinians for their plight, as the Palestinian Authority’s recent cancellation of long overdue elections—the first since 2006—further exposed the corruption of the P.A. dictatorship. The cancellation “is another sign of a, I don’t any other way to put it, but a bankrupt leadership, that has no strategic vision, that is incapable of even minimally doing what is required to put its own house in order.” “You can never really underestimate the Palestinian leadership’s dysfunction,” he added."
Op.Cit.


How is it the Democrats always manage to pick the losers?


And vice versa......remember the Palestinians sending donations to Obama's campaign.....illegally, of course.

".....Palestinians have “become their own worst enemies” by showing themselves unworthy of serious international consideration. This societal incompetence “is self-reinforcing” against Palestinian state aspirations, as Arab nations are “not inclined to want to move ahead with two states.” In this context, he chastised Israel, the United States and other countries for “opposing Palestinian reconciliation efforts” between the P.A. and Hamas, as if giving power to jihadist terrorists could solve anything."


Consistent with Trump's successful efforts in the area, no aid should be given to the savages of Hamas, and Gaza.

Let the same folks who gave them the thousands of missiles to fire at Israel, be responsible for any aid.

That would be Obama's pets, the world's worst state sponsor of terrorism.


Or, maybe Democrats could send those checks to Planned Parenthood to Tehran instead and Gaza.
Seems fair....Gaza sent checks to Obama....

Well some of them are still supporting the vermin on the sly, or they wouldn't have those rockets. They share no border with Iran, so they're coming in from the surrounding Arab states, which doesn't happen in dictatorships without deliberate govt. permissions. All this group hugging and mutual ass kissing will go away the second Iran ceases to be a threat to Sunnis.

And why is this a bad thing?

One step to real peace is for the UN to finally admit that it w as Egypt who created the 'refugee camps', not Israel; they refused to allow them to return to their homelands and blocked them in. But it's all moot, since there is never going to be a political solution, it will ultimately be a military one, unless Egypt and the other Arab dictatorships face up to their role in the problems. The UN is a Marx Brothers farce, only with horrible script writers. This is the UN that allowed Arab terrorists to set up mortar and rocket pits right next to their observation towers, and then sniveled and whined when the IDF responded to their shelling by attacking the pits, with the resulting collateral damage, of course. they're hypocritical morons and buffoons. Even the French are more effective.

AMEN! Perhaps it's that "leverage" that has kept the Palestinians from refusing to even negotiate a peaceful solution for decades?
