Biden: Trump's stand vs. Iran deal and Palestinians endangers Israel

Joe Biden and his energy planDemocratic presidential nominee Joe Biden insisted that President Donald Trump has “put Israel in danger” by dismantling his and former President Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal and by holding the terrorist-led Palestinians accountable – despite the president’s hand in the Jewish State’s peace deals with Arab and Muslim nations.

“Trump has put Israel in danger by tearing up the Iran nuclear deal … [and] has undermined the stability of self-determination for the Palestinians – undercutting hope for a viable two-state solution any chance that he gets,” Biden proclaimed Thursday at a fundraiser for the far-left, George Soros-backed  group, J Street, according to the Jewish Insider.

Pot calling the kettle black?

In the face of Biden’s claim, Israel says it was his former boss that put Israel in danger – not Trump.

“The Israeli government argued – in contrast – that it was the Obama-Biden administration’s nuclear deal with Iran that put it in danger,” Breitbart News reported. “The deal slowed Iran’s nuclear program for a limited time, but expired after roughly a decade … allow[ing] Iran to develop nuclear-capable ballistic missiles, and to continue sponsoring terrorist proxies. [T]he deal removed many sanctions on Iran, gave the regime an estimated $100 to $150 billion in unfrozen assets, and delivered billions more in cash, [while it] threatened Arab states, ironically — and unintentionally — encouraging them to improve ties with Israel.”

Biden also did not mention how Trump reached out to the Palestinians while looking out for Israel’s safety.

“The Trump peace plan offers Palestinians a state, plus $50 billion in investment – if it agrees to recognize Israel and stop terror and incitement,” Breitbart noted. “Trump signed a bipartisan law – the Taylor Force Act – in 2018, cutting aid to the Palestinian Authority while it continues to pay stipends to terrorists and their families. He also ended U.S. funding for a United Nations ‘refugee’ agency for Palestinians that – critics say – encourages radicalism and prolongs the conflict.”

Calling a broker of peace a warmonger?

Biden’s allegations of Trump endangering Israel ironically came a day before the president brokered his latest Middle East peace deal – a strategic and dynamic pact between Israel and Bahrain.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Brian Morgenstern asserted that Trump brought the deal to fruition through his passion to cease endless Middle East wars – while endeavoring to start a new era of peace and prosperity in the longtime Powder Keg.

"This is an extraordinary achievement – the president made the first major breakthrough like this in 26 years," Morgenstern told Outnumbered Overtime host Harris Faulkner Friday, according to Fox News. "In less than a month, he's made yet another one, [and] he has not one, but two Nobel Peace Prize nominations now in recent days because the president is ending endless wars and he's bringing about peace and prosperity, promoting our ally, Israel, normalizing relations with Arab states – really tremendous developments – and also isolating those who want to do harm and cause violence and dysfunction, isolating actors like Iran."

He went on to laud Trump for strengthening Israel’s ties with Arab nations.

"These are spectacular developments for the world, spectacular development for our friends in the region who want peace and who want prosperity, and spectacular developments for the American people who want a more peaceful world into the future," Faulkner added.

Trump took to social media to announce the unprecedented agreement between the nations.

“Another HISTORIC breakthrough today!” Trump exclaimed on Twitter Friday. “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!”

Spreading more peace in a volatile region

Before Bahrain, Trump brought several other nations on board with Israel.

“In the past several weeks, Israel has reached historic agreements to establish peace and normalize relations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and with Muslim-majority Chad and Muslim-majority Kosovo,” Breitbart noted. “In addition, Serbia, Malawi, Chad and Kosovo have agreed to put embassies in Jerusalem – following the lead of the Trump administration – which did so in 2018. Saudi Arabia has also agreed to allow Israeli commercial aircraft to fly over its territory for the first time.”

Biden … a friend of the Palestinians, and no friend to Israel …

While Trump has strengthened America’s alliance with Israel, it has been stressed that Biden played a leading role in distancing the United States from its longstanding ally while serving as vice president with the Obama administration.

“[Biden] condemned Israel in 2010 for planning to build apartments in a Jewish area of eastern Jerusalem, and says he wants to restore the Iran nuclear deal – despite continuing Israeli objections,” Breitbart recounted. “He also reportedly said that he opposes Netanyahu’s wish to extend sovereignty (‘annexation’) over Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (the ‘West Bank’).”

Showing his pro-Palestinian colors, Biden vowed that if he is elected president, he will “reopen the U.S. consulate in Palestinian East Jerusalem” – this despite the fact that the consulate was actually located in western Jerusalem.
