Trump Middle East Policy Urgency

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:52 AM

President Donald Trump had promised more wonders to come during the week of the Bahrain, UAE mutual recognition with Israel, a formerly considered impossibility and unaccomplished by all former administrations. Everyone was waiting in anticipation of Saudi Arabia also reaching such an agreement with Israel, the jewel of any Middle East policy. With the current and likely election results thus far, it would appear to be nixing any further developments. This would be a very sad conclusion when there had been such hope. But we are holding out hope simply because we foresee the coming foreign policy in the Middle East under a Biden administration may move the United States away from Saudi Arabia, her traditional friend, and lean to favoring Iran for these three reasons: because it was the policy under President Obama having the complete support by Vice-President Biden; President Trump favored Israel, Saudi Arabia and the traditional American friends in the Middle East; and lastly the President-elect remembers the dressing-down he received as a young Senator by Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Began. When Senator Biden threatened to cut aid to Israel, should Israel refuse to grant the Palestinians their every wish, the Israeli Prime Minister <a href= target=blank>replied</a>, “Don’t threaten us with slashing aid. Do you think that because the US lends us money it is entitled to impose on us what we must do? We are grateful for the assistance we have received, but we are not to be threatened. I am a proud Jew. Three thousand years of culture are behind me, and you will not frighten me with threats.”

Deep State and the Swamp

President Trump does continue in full capacity making him quite able to continue with the intended Middle East reorientation for about fifty days providing any treaty can make it past the Senate, something possible but unlikely. There is a high probability that a Biden administration will rotate away from the Sunni Arab world along with Israel while rejoining the Iran nuclear deal, which very well could allow Iran to become a secretly nuclear armed nation while provided a wink and a nod from the incoming State Department and the return of the Swamp. Should President Trump present normalization with Israel as the sole guarantee of an ally adequately equipped to defend them as well as properly presenting a solid opposition against the expansionist policies of Iran as executed by the IRGC, President Trump could simply present the choice to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, current leader of Saudi Arabia, to either join the new alignment or face the new American Middle East policies favoring Iran basically alone. Trust that Israel is not expecting their newfound alliances to be warm, fuzzy, emotionally supportive or anything but Israel being a deterrent against any Iranian mischief. Soon after the noon hour of January 20, 2021, the United States will rejoin the Iran Nuclear Deal (JCPOA)</a>. This agreement originally made Saudi Arabia and the Sunni Arab world nervous fearing any possibility which could permit Iran going nuclear. Hopefully, for the sake of Israel as well as the Sunni world, governments and organizations from the rest of the world outside the Middle East will pressure Iran to remain a non-nuclear nation and not to become a nuclear armed nation. We hold out little hope for any assistance once the United States has their Middle East policies reversed from their present alliances. We might even resort to a word we really wish was not so applicable, ominous.
