Well, That Makes Sense

President Donald Trump (R-USA) had the most success in achieving peace in the Middle East of any President in my lifetime, perhaps any President in history, so why not toss his work aside and return to the bad old days?

The Trump administration was on the verge of securing a peace agreement between Israel and Indonesia in its final weeks in office, according to a former senior Trump administration official involved in the efforts. The official divulged that the negotiations between Israel and the world’s most populous Muslim state were run by then-President Donald Trump’s senior adviser Jared Kushner and Adam Boehler, then-head of the US’s International Development Finance Corporation.

Indonesia would have been another signatory on the Abraham Accords, a vital first step to lasting peace in the region. But…

But despite the strategic logic of expanding the Abraham Accords and the praise Biden and Blinken have given them, starting in its first week in office, the new administration’s actions have served to undermine the accords by removing their American foundations.

So, why then?


[U]nlike its predecessor, the Biden administration will not work to strengthen the US alliance with the Sunni Arabs and Israel, and will not fulfill the commitments that the Trump administration took on to develop and maintain that alliance through Arab-Israeli peace.

Biden’s abandonment of the Abraham Accords can be understood in the context of US politics. In keeping with the expectations of Democrat voters, Biden and his team are making efforts in domestic and foreign policy to erase the entirety of Trump’s record in office. Although remaining a party to the Abraham Accords and expanding them to Indonesia and beyond would probably win Biden the Nobel Peace Prize, it would put him in the partisan doghouse for the crime of failing to kill something Trump created.

Well, we can’t have that. Millions might die because of it, but that’s a small price to pay to ensure that Trump doesn’t get any credit for the biggest foreign policy win in my lifetime.

Read the whole thing. It gets worse.

This is what you voted for.
