Erroneous Thinking That Middle Eastern Ideologies Will Survive the Coming Storm

Loss of President Trump's Path to Peace:

As the United States appears on the threshold of passing into the next era of political intrigue after the questionable electoral results that will never be validated in truth (for very few in American politics seeks justice anymore-activist judges have seen to that); and since America has figured very largely in Middle Eastern politics after recognizing Israel in 1948, there has been the contention that America should butt out; or at least kiss the Israeli enemies in keeping the Jewish State in a state of disarray while her enemies try to eliminate the Jewish people altogether.
America's attitude towards Israel has been somewhat irregular, but somehow American politics had been guided by unseen forces and developed an uneasy liaison between a Christian perspective of Zionistic tendencies (President Trump making historic representations of friendly alliances) and taking unprecedented steps of making Israel whole according to the Biblical heritage that is source of aggravation of any entity that desires to see Israel eliminated.
Israel's destiny appeared for a longtime to be controversial dependent upon the attitude of the American government, which as Dr. Pipes pointed out, has been old school versus new ideology, which as many might have noticed, has taken on a more scriptural form of pragmatism and allowing the evidence of Israel's presence to be properly vetted and provide a pathway for Israel to formalize her claim to the land; which as everyone has speculated for centuries, cannot be allowed for every reason the enemies of Israel can dig up; or keep buried.
What is not being allowed is any dialogue that says Israel has a right to be sovereign over the land promised to Abraham's seed, but President Trump contravened that by recognizing Jerusalem as the eternal Capitol of Israel; moving the political interface from Tel Aviv to the rightful Capitol, recognizing Golan (Bashan) as Israeli territory and generally providing comfort and support to Israel in appropriate political relations. Israel's enemies and some that have claimed friendship would beg and haggle over doing anything of that sort.
Fortunes are being gambled away in order to return to some more controversial attitudes that will not bring peace, let alone any sense of order in the region. There are sinister forces at work and this appears to be the beginning of a resurgent campaign as nuclear ambitions are now entering onto the scene to aggravate the imbalances of political extremism that many think will be employed for powers of overt influences, yet being ineffective since Israel has a guarantee beyond anything that mankind can insure; as any reasonable intellectual knows, one cannot deploy that magnitude of power without being able to prove its effectiveness. Just ask the Soviet Union how that worked out – oh wait; they are no longer a nuclear power, something that remains in question for the CIS until that argument is made again in February, 2021; right? America is now entering the coming maelstrom; they can't help themselves now.
