Very disappointed that such a historic agreement has barely had a mention in the online mainstream media, but I guess it is because the man who brokered the peace is called Donald Trump, the media decided not to post something positive about him. Can you actually imagine reading good news for a change especially in this current madness…..
This is more than a historic agreement, this has now stopped the building extensions going on into the West Bank and this can only be good for the region, especially when the Middle East really is a powder keg at the moment.
Don’t get me wrong I have called out Donald Trump before now and have actually written on his personal twitter account all the things he gets wrong and that makes he come across as a petulant child at times, and the media are on it quicker than someone throwing a million dollars in the street and shouting freebie…….but could they really hate him that much, that they would ignore such a historic agreement happening?
Trump on Thursday said he had a call with Israel and the United Arab Emirates. The president told reporters Israel and the UAE will “begin cooperation across the board,” along with exchanging embassies and ambassadors. The president said he expected other countries to follow the UAE’s lead on this effort to cooperate with Israel going forward.
The president said the action would be known as the “Abraham Accord,” named for the “father of all three great faiths.” “No person better symbolizes the potential for unity of these three great faiths,” U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said from the Oval Office Thursday, and that shows how in touch he is with the delicate situation in the Middle East as Jews and Muslims are both descended from Abraham and it gives them a sense of brotherhood…..well done for thinking of that name.
He deserves a round of applause and the congratulations that are due to him because he has achieved far more than Obama. For instance Obama was dropping bombs everyday throughout his tenure, whereas Trump has taken out one bad guy and used diplomacy to prevent a war as he does not want one…… He has not dropped any bombs via drone warfare on any weddings in Pakistan and he has tried to bring in those rogue states like North Korea, and he continues his effort to this day.
Is that not worth the press for once in their journalistic lives giving the credit where credit is due. This will have a huge effect on both side living in the disputed areas and could reduce the acts of terrorism aimed at Isreael.
Israel is a friend of the West but we must now allow them to ride roughshod over people whose land is in dispute, and because of the fantastic work done by the President of the United States of America it looks like the ice between both sides has thawed a little.
