(Liberty Bell) – It should come as no surprise to anyone that former Vice President Joe Biden is attempting to take credit for the historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, as Democrats have a well established reputation for taking what doesn’t belong to them. You know, wealth distribution isn’t always just about money.
Anyway, Rep. Lee Zeldin from New York wasn’t having any of that nonsense and quickly spoke out to reject the claim by Biden that the former administration had anything to do with paving the way for this peace deal to be negotiated.
Just look at Obama’s horrible reputation with the government in Israel. There’s no way this man had any role to play in securing this deal.
Here’s more from Newsmax:
“The Obama-Biden administration, literally as they walked out the door, the highest-profile foreign policy item was really turning their backs, stabbing in the back Israel with U.N. Security Council resolution 2334,” Zeldin told Fox News’ “Fox and Friends.” “You had dynamics between President [Barack] Obama and Bibi [Netanyahu] and, of course, you had the Iran nuclear deal.
“So. I don’t think that Joe Biden has anything to brag about as far as the Obama administration’s trajectory in the U.S..-Israel relationship.”
But President Donald Trump came into office and has been scoring “win after win,” and instead of “treating Israel like Iran and Iran like Israel,” not Israel is being treated like Israel.
“We should not turn the clock back on where we are reentering into deals where we are delivering pallets of cash Iran in the middle of the night and other bad foreign policies that set us back and our allies.”
The development that was reached on Thursday between these two countries is a huge deal because for years, the Jewish Nation has been completely surrounded by countries that have not recognized it’s legitimate existence as a country.
“Hopefully what it leads to is other countries in that region to do the same,” Zeldin said. “Whether that earns the president a Nobel Peace Prize, that, unfortunately, I think we are dealing with a different reality where President Obama earned it just for showing up and getting elected.”
Zeldin also discussed the ongoing coronavirus relief bill discussions, claiming Democrats think they have more leverage than they do.
“They are putting forth asks completely unrelated to COVID-19, whether it’s providing by the way stimulus checks to people who are illegally in our country, mass prison release, nationwide ballot harvesting, a nationwide ban on voter ID.”
“When you talk about a trillion dollars, that’s real money,” Zeldin said. “[Republicans] are willing to help out with state and local government funding but giving more than they are even asking for is insane.”
This is a huge step forward in negotiating peace in the Middle East, something no one ever dreamed would even be remotely possible. And granted, there’s still a long way to go, but this is real, tangible progress.
Of course, it’s going to be far more difficult to get some countries in that region of the world on board with the idea of peace, like Iran for example, but who knows what the future might hold.
