Arabs are afraid of Biden imitating Obama on Iran that they are willing to make peace with Israel to boost Trump’s chances for re-election rather than deal with another U.S. President promoting and empowering their arch-enemy Iran. With Trump, they know exactly what they are getting, Not so with Joe Biden. His campaign has not assuaged Arab fears with any major announcement on Iran.
This scared them enough they are lining up to make peace with Israel to save themselves from another Obama-like foreign policy.
Even if Arabs’ concerns of Biden’s foreign policy are unfounded, Obama’s council and advisory services strike fears in their hearts. They know the former President is going to help Iran behind-the-scenes invade other countries. Maybe UAE itself. No Arab government trusted Barack Obama, and apparently they remain steadfast in their beliefs the harm the Presidency of his former VP can cause their governments.
Credit President Donald Trump for facilitating this new peace between the Israelis and the Emiratis. One that every Arab and Israeli should applaud.
Watch for Saudi Arabia’s October surprise detailing a new announcement of normalizing relations with Israel
CREDIT OBAMA FOR THE ISRAELI-EMIRATI ABRAHAM ACCORD
But more so, the biggest credit goes to Barack Obama. His history of empowerment of Iran has pushed Arabs to make peace with Israel. Most likely to his chagrin because he never enjoyed good relations with the Jewish State. In fact, every Middle East policy he implemented, like gifting the Muslim Brotherhood the key to Egypt, the ill-advised Iran Deal, and his refusal to interfere in Syria to help the moderate Free Syrian Army defeat Assad has been to confront Israel directly.
Today, Arab countries see Biden repeat history, and they all decided to boost Trump’s chances on November 3. It is simply too risky to face Obama all over again. Even if behind the scenes.
Watch for Saudi Arabia’s October surprise detailing a new announcement of normalizing relations with Israel. Whether it will have an impact on the U.S. elections remains a mystery. Maybe not enough for Trump to win, but enough to make Joe Biden quite nervous. If Biden looses the elections, Barack Obama is to blame.
This is a textbook “cause and effect”. Obama caused all the troubles for the Arabs and the effect is the Arabs are fighting back to defeat his successor. Assuming, of course, Biden is following in Obama’s footsteps.
The best Joe Biden can do now is announce the name of his National Security Adviser, and hope their hawkish approach to Iranian violence may appease the Arabs
THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN SHORTSIGHTEDNESS
The Israeli-Emirati Abraham Accord is probably catching the Biden campaign by surprise and a big one, we assume. Had Biden taken the initiative to understand Arab fears of Obama’s policies with regard to Syria and Iran, he would have picked up the phone to assure them of his independence from the Obama foreign policy.
Unless, of course, he believes in it the way his former boss did. Which means if Biden wins, a huge disaster is looming that would start a big war in MENA.
The best Joe Biden can do now is announce the name of his National Security Adviser, and hope their hawkish approach to Iranian violence may appease the Arabs. If he does not act, he is sending the message to all the Arabs that he intends to honor Obama‘s past mistakes. If he does not, Saudi Arabia’s announcement come this October is as good as gold.
How ironic that Obama’s intentions to squeeze Israel are really backfiring in spades? Instead, Israel is making peace with the Arabs, something Obama should have concentrated on instead of helping Iran invade Arab countries. Hallelujah hindsight!
One could praise Barack Obama for lots of things, but being a visionary is not one of them. His past policies are helping Donald Trump possibly achieve victory come this November 3.
