We have heard two very strong statements President Trump over the many years we have known him. The art of the deal and respect through strength. Two philosophies that go hand in hand. Now over the past few weeks we have had three major international relationship deals put together by a strong negotiating team. With countries who respect strength. Only Trump could have done this, by allowing the United States to withdraw from the middle east, reducing our troupes and bringing them home, and putting the responsibility of peace back in the hand of the countries who need to work together, especially since oil is their only revenue stream and that is drying up.
Now the Democrats are going to look at these deals in a negative light, they will never say anything good about these deals because for some reason they have a disdain view of Israel. How that happened I am still trying to understand as to why they have turned on Israel. Perhaps it was that people voted in very hateful people into Congress who do not like Israel from countries that hate Israel. From a former President who did not like Israel. Before, Democrats were the friend of Israel and then Democratic leadership changed and they all went to the party view that Israel was bad. I know, shock to me and a shock to Israel. But throughout the past few years this has become obvious through the leadership of the Democratic party. It is interesting that what type of leadership that changes from friendly to non-friendly.
As we look at the beginning of deals within the middle east and Israel, we also have to take into consideration that a good portion of the nations in the middle east hate Iran more then Israel. To beat Iran, Israel is needed. Let's face it the military strength in the middle east is Israel. They have been fighting a war against Iran for a long time, the know the enemy. Remember the art of war, know your enemy.
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” - Sun Tzu, The Art of War
Israel knows the enemy and everything about them. They watch Iran like hawks. They know every single move Iran makes and that source of information and tactics is respected by the middle eastern nations. Thus, the strength of one small nation can do great damage to their enemies - Iran. The other issue is that Israel is a stronger nation as it come to research and development in medicine and technology. The middle east have never developed that strength.
It will be interesting to see who will be next to create ties with Israel and the United States.
