Historic ‘Abraham Accords’ for Middle East neighbors of Israel.
Former deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland noted only a short time ago that not even an administration assembled by Joe Biden could “screw up” the Abraham Accords brokered by President Trump and his administration.
But maybe it can.
Or at least it can suppress the name to change the dialogue about them.
A report from Israel365news explains that not only is the Biden administration actively suppressing the name of the historic Trump-brokered deals between multiple Arab neighbors and Israel, it apparently is trying “to dismantle to Abraham Accords in order to realign the U.S. with Iran and strengthen the Islamic regime.”
A report in Tablet explained, “The alliance between Israel and the Gulf states is an impediment to the dream of a re-empowered, nuclear-armed Iran backed by the United States, which was Obama’s main foreign policy aim – and an affront to peace processors convinced of their own never-ending importance.”
The report continued, “The Biden administration apparently aims to sink the accords by penalizing Israel and its peace partners for getting too close, and returning the Palestinians to center stage – in order to prepare the ground for reentering the Iran deal.”
There have been tense strident exchanges regarding the name of the agreements.
The Free Beacon explained that the Biden State Department “discourages employees from referring to the historic peace agreements signed by Israel and its Arab neighbors by its official name, the Abraham Accords, according to one source with direct knowledge of the Biden administration’s internal decision-making process and emails reviewed by the Washington Free Beacon.”
Instead, the Biden administration is calling the deals “normalization agreements,” the report said.
In fact, the “Accords” name “has also been erased from a wide array of official State Department communications,” the report said.
They were negotiated last year by the Trump administration “and paved the way for Israel to make peace with traditional Arab foes, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and, later, other Muslim nations,” the report said.
