The Democrats’ partisan damage: Goodwin

First, it was the United Arab Emirates and Israel making peace. Then it was Serbia and Kosovo agreeing to set aside political disputes to sign an economic deal. And now Bahrain and ­Israel are set to sign a peace treaty.

The last month has been a remarkable one for the Biblical injunction to turn swords into plowshares. Most dramatically, the number of Arab countries recognizing Israel’s right to exist has doubled, from two to four, a leap that is reshaping 75 years of Middle East politics before our eyes.

These breakthroughs were brokered by President Trump and his administration. It is an extraordinary record of peacemaking, yet in too many circles, it is being treated as a sideshow without significance.

Naturally, The New York Times took the low road, insisting Saturday that the deals show Trump trying “to position himself as a peacemaker before the elections in November.”

So being an actual peacemaker doesn’t count because the Times spies a personal motive?

In the same vein, talk of the president getting a Nobel Peace Prize is instantly dismissed. Over the dead bodies of the world elite will Trump be so honored.

Obama received the Nobel Prize simply because he was elected President. It seems the requirement for receiving the award has been drastically diminished and its prestige now very diluted.
Even if President Trump receives the award it no longer carries the honor it did in the past.

Now if only he could create peace in his own country!

These countries were already united in their fear/distrust for Iran. Trump is just slapping his name on a hotel that's already built. Progress is progress though. Speaking of Iran, they have more enriched uranium than ever. Great job current Administration. I thought Obamas deal was weak

As usual the sale of US military equipment is behind it all. Same reason he never condemned Saudi Arabia for killing Khashoggi. They buy too much of his real-estate and too many of our jets.

Who cares about these people or these places ? Let them rape pillage and plunder each other. What do they have that we are so concerned about ? Our own Nation is not in much of a state right now. Trump want's an awarded peace prize ? Restore order and civility HERE first ! Forget those places and Globalism.
