U.S.-Israeli Honeymoon Nearing Its End: Trump’s Last Gift To Netanyahu

On December 10th, the Twitter account of the US President Donald Trump once again informed the world about “a massive breakthrough for peace in the Middle East.” Morocco and Israel have agreed to establish diplomatic relations, Donald Trump tweeted.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed that the countries are working toward establishing full diplomatic relations ‘as rapidly as possible’. Netanyahu made a speech on Thursday,  when he met the US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman for the ceremony in Jerusalem on the first night of Hanukkah.

“On this Hanukkah, the light of peace has never shone brighter than today in the Middle East,” Netanyahu said.

According to the claims, Israel and Morocco are going to start a new period in their diplomatic relations by opening mutual “liaison offices” and establishing direct aviation links.

In his speech, Netanyahu declared the friendly relations between the Israelis and Moroccans, mentioning the thousands of Jews living in Morocco and the proximity between the two peoples as the basis of warm relations between the countries.

“Everybody knows the tremendous friendship shown by the kings of Morocco and the people of Morocco to the Jewish community there. And hundreds of thousands of these Moroccan Jews came to Israel and they form a human bridge between our two countries and our two peoples — of sympathy, of respect, of fondness and love,” he said.

Diplomatic relations between Israel and Morocco were established in 1994 and severed in 2000, after the first Palestinian intifada, which killed and injured dozens of Arab Israeli citizens. For twenty years, no significant steps have been taken by the two sides to meet each other during the last 20 years. Despite the Netanyahu’s strong statements that “there were warm relations between the peoples of Morocco and the Jewish people,” not so long ago, the Moroccan government made it clear that it did not intend to normalize diplomatic relations with Jews.

In August 2020, Moroccan Prime Minister Saad-Eddine El-Othmani proclaimed: “We refuse to normalize relations with the Zionist entity because this will embolden it to further breach the rights of the Palestinian people.”

It did not take long to persuade the Moroccan leadership. Rabat is interested in friendship with Israel since it improves relations with the United States. The main reason for the establishing of diplomatic relations with Israel was not the “large Jewish diaspora in Morocco” or “close ties between the peoples “, but the US recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara.

Therefore, the United States recognized Moroccan sovereignty over the entire Western Sahara territory. The U.S. took advantage of the situation by stepping up negotiations with the Arab side at a time when hostilities intensified in Western Sahara, and the Moroccan government had little choice but to accept support from Washington.

According to the statement by the President, the U.S. “will encourage economic and social development with Morocco, including in the Western Sahara territory”. Washington intends to open an American consulate in the Western Sahara city of Dakhla.

The territory of Western Sahara was claimed by Mauritania and Morocco. The latter controls most of the territory. In the 1970s, the POLISARIO Front proclaimed the Sahara Arab Democratic Republic, partially recognized by other countries.

The recognition of Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara confirms once again that the Trump administration is not interested in observing international law if it does not correspond to the U.S. national interests. It is a unilateral decision that goes beyond the decisions of the UN Security Council and contradicts UN mission aimed at holding a referendum in Western Sahara. Therefore, it should be expected that Morocco will receive significant financial preferences in the near future, especially in view of the fact that hostilities in Western Sahara are likely to intensify in the near future.

Israeli Kahol Lavan (Blue and White) political alliance leader Benny Gantz (C-L) walks during a session of the Knesset (Israeli parliament) in Jerusalem on December 11, 2019. – Israel’s parliament was rushing through a bill to call a third general election in a year (Photo by Gali TIBBON / AFP)

On the one hand, the decision conciliated Netanyahu and King Mohammed VI, but at the same time, it once again demonstrated disagreement between the Prime Minister and the Defense Minister Benny Gantz and Foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi. Benjamin Netanyahu kept his senior coalition partners from the Blue and White party in the dark about a brewing accord with Morocco. According to Israeli Channel 12, the Ministers were informed by the White House instead of the premier’s office. They were also updated weeks ago the progress toward the agreement was being started. The same situation occurred during the signing of agreements with the UAE and Bahrain.

The lack of coordination in the foreign policy demonstrates internal divisions in the Israeli Knesset. A few days ago, the Israeli opposition has submitted a bill on the early dissolution of parliament and the appointment of early elections for March 16, 2021. The decision by the Knesset will be adopted on December 14.

Leader of the Blue and White party, Benny Gantz, seeks to remove incumbent Prime Minister Netanyahu from running the country and reduce his political influence to a minimum. He moved to action to cancel the coalition rotation agreements, which would require Netanyahu and Gantz to serve as Prime Minister for a year and a half each.

Anyway, Benny Gantz has no other choice but to congratulate Netanyahu with his today’s success in foreign policy.

“I welcome the expected establishment of official relations with Morocco. …. This is a significant development, one that will strengthen the security and economic interests of the two countries. I thank the American administration that works unwearyingly to strengthen Israel and for stability in the entire region.”- he said in a statement.

UAE Israeli deal

The news about the restoration of relations between Tel Aviv and Rabat has already been greeted abroad, by Egypt, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. The authorities of the Arab Emirates said that “this sovereign step is an important contribution to our common efforts to achieve stability, lasting and just peace in the region.” Congratulations to the King of Morocco, Muhammad VI, were sent by the King of Bahrain, Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa.

Morocco will become the 4th Arab country to declare the normalization of relations with Israel in recent months. On October 23, Trump announced that Sudan and Israel had agreed to normalize relations. On September 15, in Washington, the Israeli side signed the agreement with the UAE and Bahrain.

Apparently, Netanyahu will miss Donald Trump a lot if he leaves the post of U.S. President. The Trump administration has close ties with Israeli elites and throughout the period has strenuously defended Israeli interests, sometimes even against US national interests.

Today Netanyahu has no choice but to try to make the most of the remaining time to further improve relations with Arab countries through American diplomacy. Trump, in his turn, is trying to consolidate the results of his policy on fumes and in spite of international law in order to present a solid legacy to his successor Joe Biden. If Biden comes to the post of US President, Netanyahu will have to reckon with the position of the new “big brother” on the number of crucial issues, such as the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Iranian nuclear deal. And even the help of Tel Aviv’s new friends, like Morocco, Sudan or Egypt, is very unlikely to be sufficient to resolve the Tel-Aviv’s differences with the new U.S. administration.

The Biden administration will not be so cozy with Israel as Trump was, since his Jewish supporters don’t care about Israel that much……unlike AIPAC Jews that supported Trump.

In Exile

Every Jew cares about Israel it’s their head office and where they can flee when things get a little hot.

Jesus

The younger Jews from Silicon Valley don’t think about Israel so much.

Steve Standley

Look at Biden’s Cabinet. It’s filled with Zionist warmongering Jews. There will only be more support, not less.

tzatz

Aww … you sound upset?

But … why?

tzatz

Except the Israelis there … eh?

Great Khan

hahaha what is Israel,,,,Jew in shit hahahhaa

tzatz

You’re in sh Xt … punk

Holding your dick … lol

Steve Standley

Yup. they have to have a place to go when they are under indictment for shit like espionage, pedophilia, murder, sex trafficking, and theft; so israel is just as important to the lefty jews as the righties.

tzatz

Yes … that’s true to an extent but fleeing the West isn’t really necessary … the ‘rule of law’ protects all citizens equally … eh?

But … when an economic downturn occurs in Argentina or France or the USA or Russia … Israel will be a destination … Zion

occupybacon

Wrong

daniel

Why

Bibi is seen like Trump by many Ameeican jews, warmongering to cover corruption scandals. They would prefer containment of Iran though peaceful deals.

In Exile

Sorry 100% correct or you have the rare exception, yeah sure you do, run along champ.

According to the Jerusalem Post, Jews overwhelmingly support Biden, their new (old) champion. Very interesting text (from october, they knew the outcome even before the elections).

Joe Biden will make a great president

Joe Biden is a mensch, and we need a mensch in the White House.

Vice President Biden has for decades stood with Israel, combated antisemitism, and fought for the same sense of social justice I learned in shul and at home. As president, he will continue to safeguard the Jewish state, the Jewish people, Jewish values, and guarantee the unbreakable support of the United States.

We Jews always want to know which candidate has Jews closest to him. His kids or grandkids, his running mate or their spouse, his most senior staff. Who visited a synagogue? Met again with a bunch of mainstream Jewish leaders or built a sukkah in his backyard by the pool. Well, Jewish values course through the heart of Joe Biden’s own candidacy, campaign, and career. His presidency will personify the best of our faith tradition, as has his entire career.

Vice President Joe Biden, whose five older grandchildren all identify Jewishly (the sixth is a one-year-old), and with whom he discusses the Shoah and Jewish issues. If Bill Clinton was for many Black Americans the first Black president, then B”H (Biden-Harris?) B’ezrat Hashem – With God’s help, and yours – then Joe Biden will be the first Jewish president.

Joe Biden has been a steadfast ally of the Jewish community, never flinching in standing up to antisemitism. He has cultivated deep relationships with our community throughout his career and understands that Jewish heritage is central to American life.

The rise in antisemitism under Trump is dangerous for Jewish Americans in particular, but Joe Biden knows it threatens our country’s entire social fabric.

Joe Biden first visited Israel in 1973, meeting with Golda Meir shortly before the Yom Kippur War, and has championed a free and well-defended Israel ever since. The record bears this out: he has been an unwavering advocate for a two-state solution, ensuring Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state. He has also built relationships of trust with every Israeli Prime Minister since Meir, advocating for deep and enduring US-Israel cooperation, expressing when and where we disagree, encouraging peace talks, and standing up against campaigns to delegitimize Israel.

Vice President Biden was central during the Obama-Biden administration to securing funds for Iron Dome, David’s Sling, and the Arrow 3 anti-rocket and missile defense systems. He was a force behind the $38 billion, ten-year memorandum of understanding for defense assistance to Israel signed in 2016, the largest such military aid package in US history. Joe Biden has always advocated for Israel’s Qualitative Military Edge and been a leader in fighting for a safe and secure Israel with the capability, if need be, to defend itself by itself.

Joe Biden is a mensch, and we need a mensch in the White House.

You are cuckoo, he has jewish grandchildren and is friends with Nethanyahu going back into days when Bibi went first to the states. Nothing will change. There will come no help for the palis from Biden..

Jesus

Biden is a tool in the hands of progressive Jews that don’t care much about Israel. Obama put Nethanyahu in his place.

Albert Pike

‘According to a statement from the prime minister’s media adviser, Biden “reiterated his deep commitment to the State of Israel and its security,” while Netanyahu
described the “special bond” between Israel and the United States as a
“fundamental component of Israel’s security and its policy.”’ https://www.politico.com/news/2020/11/17/biden-israel-prime-minister-conversation-437017

‘“It’s about time we stop apologizing for our support for Israel. There’s no apology to be made, none,” he said in the Senate in June 1986. “It is the best $3 billion investment we make. If there weren’t an Israel, the United States of America would have to invent an Israel to protect her interests in the region.”’
