Trump hints at more peace deals after Israel-UAE deal


President Trump on Tuesday declared the "dawn of a new Middle East" as he presided over the signing of two historic Middle East diplomatic deals between Israel and two Gulf nations.

"We're here this afternoon to change the course of history. After decades of division and conflict we mark the dawn of a new Middle East," he said at the ceremony in the South Lawn of the White House.

"Thanks to the great courage of the leaders of these three countries, we take a major stride toward a future in which people of all faiths and backgrounds live together in peace and prosperity," he said.

The deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, and Israel and Bahrain, involve the exchanging of ambassadors, establishment of embassies and co-operation on a range of fronts -- including trade, security and tourism. The agreements, known as the "Abraham Accords" also allow Muslims to visit Islamic holy sites in Israel. Trump said the deals would form "the foundation for a comprehensive peace across the entire region."

Earlier in the Oval Office, Trump said "we're very far down the road with about five additional countries." He declined to name the countries he is speaking with and later said it could be "five or six" other countries.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of both the UAE and Bahrain were present to sign the deals at the ceremony. Trump signed onto each one as a witness. The leaders also signed a separate trilateral declaration of peace.

The UAE deal was announced last month, with the Bahrain deal announced on Friday.

"This day is a pivot of history, it heralds a new dawn of peace," Netanyahu said. "For thousands of years the Jewish people have prayed for peace, for decades the Jewish state has prayed for peace, and this is why today we are filled with such profound gratitude."

Sheikh Abdullah Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE's foreign minister, said "we are already witnessing a change in the heart of the Middle East, a change that will send hope around the world."

Meanwhile, Bahrain's foreign minister praised Trump's role in securing the deal.

Mr. President, your statesmanship and tireless efforts have brought us here today and made peace a reality," Dr. Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani said.

While critics have noted that such deals ignore Palestinians and the Israel-Palestinian conflict, it is hoped that the deals would be the start of warmer Arab-Israeli relations.

Trump told "Fox & Friends" on Tuesday morning that other countries "want to come in" and that he believes the Palestinians will eventually come in too.

"You're going to have peace in the Middle East," Trump said, adding that countries including Iran were "actually getting to a point where they're going to want to make a deal. They won't say that outwardly. They want to make a deal."

Democrats have given some support to the agreements, with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi saying in a statement that it marked "an important day" but said that "questions remain" including about a commitment for the UAE to purchase F-35 jets -- which has led to fears it could blunt Israel's military superiority in the region.

"As we learn more about the full details of both agreements, questions remain -- specifically, regarding the commitment that the UAE has received from the Trump Administration to purchase American-made F-35 aircraft. The U.S. Congress, on a bipartisan basis, will be watching and monitoring to ensure that Israel can maintain its qualitative military edge in the region.

"It is also critically important that we fully understand the agreements' details regarding the announced freeze of efforts by Israel to annex portions of the West Bank," she said.

Sounds like sour grapes because the Great Obama couldn't get a deal like this done.

Ed, Bahrain and United Arab Emirates were not at war with Israel before this "peace treaty". While I dont doubt it's a nice thing for some people, it doesnt address the actual issue that has caused death in Israel for the last few decades, the Palestinian issue. 

It is what it is , as we all say.

It's not really relevant. It's hard to be officially "at war" with a country you don't recognize as actually existing. It also frees you up to do or support any violence you like because, again, you aren't "at war."

Let me see if I have this right.

Obama, widely loved and deeply respected around the world, did not get  a deal done.

Trump, hated and vilified the world over, got a deal done.

Guess that proves that love and respect have precious little to do with deal making.

  1. Putin loved the fact that Trump upped Obama's bombing campaign in Syria totals; and inserted ground troops that are still there "protecting" a Syrian oil field.After France and Great Britain bugged out. Seems they didn't want to be the leader in Syria with no US doing the heavy lifting.
  2. I am sure Putin loved Trump authorizing the selling of weapons to the Ukraine government. Unlike Obama- that only authorized non lethal goods.
  3. Putin must really love the new sanctions the Trump administration put on Russia.
  4. Putin must also love that Trump forced NATO members to pay their fair share; dedicating more of their money to the military. And, that Trump ticked off our European allies so much they are talking about forming a European Armed Forces. I am sure that is something Putin come up with in his wildest nightmares.

Either Putin is the world's worst puppeteer; or Trump is the worst puppet. 

So which is it John?

...In some of the 13 countries surveyed, favorable views of the U.S. have fallen to record lows. Pew started polling on the topic nearly two decades ago.

Although the international image of the U.S. has been in decline since President Donald Trump took office in 2017, Pew found it has been dented further by what is perceived to be a badly handled response to the pandemic. Pew found that a median of just 15% of respondents say the U.S. has done a good job during the crisis, in contrast to perceptions around the World Health Organization or the European Union, both of which enjoy majority approval.

...The international declines that Pew gauged were widespread, including among the U.S.'s traditional allies. In the U.K., for example, Pew found that just 41% of people express a favorable opinion of the U.S., the lowest recorded rate.

In France, only 31% see the U.S. positively , matching the low level recorded in 2003 when the two countries were at loggerheads over the U.S.-led war in Iraq. Germans are particularly negative in their views of the U.S., with only 26% of those polled viewing the country favorably, just above the 25% level in 2003, when Germany, like France, opposed the Iraq war.

Of the countries surveyed, only South Korea was found to have a majority of people with a favorable view of the U.S., with 59% support.

Pew also gauged opinions surrounding Trump, who is facing a tough re-election battle in November against his Democratic opponent, former vice president Joe Biden.

The president’s ratings were low across the board, particularly in Belgium where just 9% of those polled had a favorable view of Trump. The Japanese were the most positive, though even there only 25% expressed confidence in Trump.

Pew said attitudes toward Trump have consistently been much more negative than those toward his predecessor, Barack Obama, especially in Western Europe. It said that in the U.K., Spain, France and Germany, ratings for Trump are similar to those received by George W. Bush near the end of his presidency, when his reputation was dented by violence in Iraq as well as the start of the global financial crisis.

Who gives a flying fuck what they think?

They are pissed because Trump actually is making those NATO members pay their fair share in dues; and increase their military budget.

Unlike Obama; that walked back his criticism of NATO members mere days after making it. Seems Obama was given the cold shoulder by our erstwhile European would be allies and couldn't take it.

I am sure they are all eager to get Biden in the White House so they can go back to be the tail wagging the dog- like it was with Bush Jr and Obama. They want a weak feckless leader that is more interested in approval ratings; than calling our "allies" out.

I am sure Biden's ratings are better in China as well; or course he has a long history of being China's cuck.

The agreements weren't between Palestinians and Israel.

Look, JR, everyone knows you wouldn't be happy with any deal that Trump had anything to do with. ANY deal. Hell, Palestine could have been granted 1 million acres or more of prime real estate to establish their own state, and if Trump had anything to do with it, you would search for any little thing you could to tear it down.

So go right ahead and complain about Trump doing what Obama could not.

LOL!
