Perhaps the most underreported and underrated story of the current century is the outbreak of peace in the Middle East.
This was achieved by Donald Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who midwifed a series of deals between Israel and its Arab neighbors.
But of course, the Norwegians don’t like Donald Trump, and could not possibly be expected to give the Nobel Prize to such a distasteful character! Think of it. They gave Barack Obama a Nobel Prize for Peace for doing NOTHING. And Trump achieves something very serious, and neither the press nor the leftists on the stuffy Nobel Prize committee care.
As Jackson Richman points out in the Washington Examiner:
The Norwegian Nobel Committee last week awarded Maria Ressa of the Philippines and Dmitry Muratov of Russia this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
While Ressa and Muratov’s work exposing their respective oppressive regimes should be applauded, there was a better choice for this year’s prize. Namely, the parties behind the U.S.-brokered Abraham Accords, where Israel normalized ties with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco.
The prize should have been shared between former President Donald Trump, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Emirati President Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa, Sudanese Sovereign Council Chairman Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, and Moroccan King Mohammed VI.
The accords were the first nation-to-nation Middle East peace deals in 25 years. Moreover, they mark an evolving Middle East. One that recognizes Iran, not Israel, as the greatest threat in the region. One that pursues a better, common future above the animosity and blood of the past. Other countries, including Saudi Arabia, have hinted at joining the accords.
The historic scale of the accords should not be underestimated.
