President Donald Trump’s Abraham Accords, in which the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan developed relations with Israel, appear now to be on hold. For, on Sunday, a declaration by the 57-nation Company of Islamic Cooperation required an immediate halt to what it described as Israel’s barbaric attacks on Gaza and blamed “systematic criminal offenses” versus the Palestinians for the battling which has lasted for a week.
“Israel is Winning Fights, Hamas is Winning the War.”
So ran the headline in the Jerusalem Post atop an analysis of the Gaza war, which began, “The IDF is signing up excellent accomplishments in Operation Guardian of the Walls, however on the other hand your house seems collapsing from within.”
Tough to disagree.
Consider this New york city Times commentary about Israel’s prime minister from the runner-up to the Democratic presidential candidate in the primaries of 2016 and 2020, Sen. Bernie Sanders:
“Mr. Netanyahu has actually cultivated a progressively intolerant and authoritarian type of racist nationalism …(and) legitimized these forces … by bringing them into the federal government. … Racist mobs that assault Palestinians on the streets of Jerusalem now have representation in its Knesset.”
Sanders’ wing of the celebration is moving toward the Palestinian side of the dispute. “Israeli air campaign eliminating civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism,” states Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota.
Tweets Michigan’s Rep. Rashida Tlaib: “Israel targeting media sources is so the world can’t see Israel’s war criminal activities led by the apartheid-in-chief Netanyahu. It’s so the world can’t see the killing of babies, children and their parents. It’s so the world can’t see Palestinians being massacred.”
Wisconsin Rep. Mark Pocan concurs: “We can not just condemn rockets fired by Hamas and neglect Israel’s state-sanctioned authorities violence versus Palestinians– consisting of unlawful evictions, violent attacks on protestors & the murder of Palestinian children … United States help ought to not be moneying this violence.”
While Israeli attacks are eliminating Hamas leaders and damaging the sites from which Hamas has fired 3,000 rockets, Israel is suffering severe and intangible losses.

A dozen were slain last week. Arab residents of Israel are day-to-day combating Jews in cities like Jaffa, Acre and Lod. Writes the Post:”With riots shaking all parts of Israel,”the nation” is being torn apart from within.” Beyond Gaza, Jerusalem, the West Bank and Israel, Lebanese and Jordanians are protesting on the border. In U.S. and European cities like Berlin, London, Paris and Madrid, protesters numbering in the thousands and 10s of thousands are marching in solidarity with the Palestinians and condemnation of Israel as a racist and an”apartheid”regime. Saturday’s early morning attack that brought down Gaza’s 12-story tower that housed the Associated Press and Al Jazeera caused a reaction in much of Western media versus Israel, which claims the building included an Hamas intelligence center and was a legitimate target.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and President Joe Biden have come out in defense of Israel’s right to attack sites from which rockets are being fired into Israel. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, however, has been more soft in backing Israel’s attacks on Gaza. The GOP appears more sturdily behind Israel
. More than 3 dozen Senate Republicans last week prompted Biden to”unequivocally”support Israel’s right to safeguard itself and to “instantly” end negotiations with Iran on sanctions relief, charging Tehran with supporting terrorist activity by Hamas versus Israel. Enjoy the Latest Videos on
Our Buchanan-Trump YouTube Playlist! In a letter to Biden, 44 Republican senators composed: “Over the past couple days, Palestinian terrorists in Gaza, who are funded by Iran, have actually released a series of rocket attacks into Israel. They are targeting Israeli civilians and cities, including Israel’s capital Jerusalem.
“Where Israel goes from here, however, is currently unclear. President Donald Trump’s Abraham Accords, in which the UAE, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan developed relations with Israel, appear now to be on hold
. For, on Sunday, a declaration by the 57-nation Organization of Islamic Cooperation required an immediate halt to what it described as Israel’s barbaric attacks on Gaza and blamed” organized criminal activities”against the Palestinians for
the battling which has actually lasted for a week. The OIC statement followed a virtual meeting in which Saudi Arabia condemned Israel’s infraction of the sanctity of Muslim holy websites and expulsions of Palestinians from their homes in East Jerusalem.
Plainly, the principal winner from this dispute is Bibi Netanyahu, who was within days of being changed as prime minister by an opposition union when fighting appeared. He is now seen by Israelis as a definitive war leader, protecting the nation from countless rockets and seriously
pressing the opponents firing those rockets. When it comes to the two-state option to which the world has been devoted for years, that possibility appears even more from reality than ever. Having actually seen what Hamas can and willing to do, what Israeli will be eager to get in a peace agreement with the Palestinians that would suggest vacating much of the West Bank, sharing Jerusalem as the capital of both countries, and a Palestinian right of return to lands from which their households were driven in the 1948-1949 Israeli War of Self-reliance, which Palestinians remember as the Nakba, or catastrophe.
A military truce might be at hand, but that is all it will be– a truce before the next round of combating. Do You Appreciate Reading Our E-mails and Website?
