in response to reader comment: Lack of Trust in Peace Treaties - Truth or Dare

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Sep 24, 2020 at 15:52

Disingenuous Motives for Peace in Tribalized Conflicts
As had been speculated about whether a 'peace' initiative would be an acceptable solution in view of the overwhelming antipathies around the 'Palestinian' situation, in which the 'Palestinians' were left out of the conversation of 'peace' with Israel. The point is that Israel's 'peace' arrangements with the UAE made some sense in that they are in the shadow of the Iranian Regime's schemes; and there is little lost love there.
Bahrain's participation is a little more leveraged; that while they are potentially on the wrong side of the Iranian's proxy position with the 'Palestinian' anger of being set aside, Bahrain now speaks to reassert the two-state solution with an East Jerusalem headquarters for the 'Palestinian' Authority. This is a circumstance that does not bode well for the region. Terms of peace are no longer tenable.
That the name of the arrangement was called the 'Abraham Accords' becomes suspect when considering the lands in question are already deeded to Abraham's seed, all other contenders notwithstanding. Nothing was solved; as a matter of fact, the groundwork for the next steps to much greater conflict had been laid.
