President Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice in the past week. His brokering of peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and the Serbia-Kosovo peace treaty. But before the ink was dry on those nominations, Trump does it again. On the anniversary of 911, it was announced that Trump had successfully brokered a peace deal between Israel and Bahrain.

Will Trump be nominated for a third time? And if he does, wouldn’t he be a lock to win it? He should be. And there is still time for more peace pacts to be announced before the election. You knew that once you were able to get someone to declare peace with Israel, others would follow.

The Palestinians tried to scuttle the Israel/UAE deal this past week at a meeting of the twenty-two Arab nations but this time the Arabs were not willing to bow to the will of the Radicals among them. They realize they gain much more being allied with Israel than they ever could with the Palestinians.

This is the turning point that the last six presidents promised to achieve but failed miserably in trying to do so. Two of those presidents hated Israel and tried to get them to sign peace deals:  Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.

But agreeing to their terms would be suicide, so we stayed at the status quo.

Once again, Trump has succeeded where everyone else has failed. Trump said way back in 2016 that if he were elected Americans would get tired of winning. I’m not tired yet. Give me four more years and then we’ll see.  I really like winning for a change.

Bahrain agrees to normalize relations with Israel, Trump announces
“Our two GREAT friends Israel and the Kingdom of Bahrain agree to a Peace Deal – the second Arab country to make peace with Israel in 30 days!

From Yahoo News

Bahrain, a Sunni-ruled kingdom with a large Shiite population, has especially tense ties with Iran and relies on the United States, which stations its Fifth Fleet on the tiny Gulf island.

Trump reversed course from his predecessor Barack Obama by selling weapons to Bahrain despite human rights concerns and has encouraged the kingdom to strengthen unofficial ties with Israel, with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner last year launching the administration’s Middle East plan in Manama.

Will Wechsler, director of the Middle East program at the Atlantic Council think tank, said that Gulf Arabs were also reacting to a perceived US withdrawal from its leadership role, which they found “hugely concerning.”

Netanyahu’s main concession was to give up a controversial plan blessed by Trump to annex much of the occupied West Bank — but it is no closer to allowing a Palestinian state, a goal the UAE and Bahrain say they still support.

There are still many cultural differences between the Arabs and Israel but both sides now see that there is a need to stick together for their mutual protection.  Iran is scaring a lot of small Arab countries and Israel could be their best protection.

Of course, the leftists are unhappy. Brian Katulis, a senior fellow at the left-leaning Center for American Progress, (George Soros) says he is pleased about Bahrain but the agreement does nothing to satisfy Iran or the Palestinians.  Neither one wants peace and the only way they would ever accept peace ism through a devastating military defeat. So, who cares?

We do need not the approval of Iran or the Palestinians and furthermore we would never get it unless both the United States and Israel are wiped off the map.
