Ilhan Omar suggests Biden should ‘reverse’ Trump’s Middle East agreements, says they ‘weren’t peace deals’

Ilhan Omar and her anti-Semitic ways are back in the news. In her latest attack, she has written an op-ed asking Biden to drop all Middle East agreements because they were not peace deals, not to mention they benefited the Israeli’s.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., laid out a scathing attack on President Trump’s foreign policy Friday, arguing his Middle East agreements weren’t actually “peace deals,” but arms deals that should be reversed by the next administration.

Remember, it was this ISIS sympathizer who asked the judge for leniency in the punishments for American Islamic State recruits.

Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., laid out a scathing attack on President Trump’s foreign policy Friday, arguing his Middle East agreements weren’t actually “peace deals,” but arms deals that should be reversed by the next administration.

Remember, it was this ISIS sympathizer who asked the judge for leniency in the punishments for American Islamic State recruits.

The congresswoman said the deals amounted to arms sales to countries that abuse human rights and were meant to increase the chance of war with Iran.

“[Trump] recently inked so-called ‘peace deals’ between the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Bahrain, Sudan, and Israel,” Omar tweeted, referring to deals that preceded Trump earning two Nobel Peace Prize nominations.

“The only problem?” she added. “They weren’t peace deals. They’re arms sales to human rights abusers, designed to empower the Gulf States and increase the risk of war with Iran.”

Her tweets came after The Nation published an op-ed in which she attacked Trump for working with the UAE, noting the nation has been accused of war crimes in Yemen and “has also been credibly accused of committing war crimes in Libya.” She went on to slam Bahrain as a “brutal dictatorship.”

Amazingly, she never said a word when Obama was bowing and scraping to the Saudi’s, trying to legitimatize the Iranian regime, ignoring ISIS. At the same time, they were slaughtering tens of thousands, calling them a JV team. Still, they were Muslims, they were not friendly with Israel, so that seems to be fine with her.

She went on to attack Trump:

“Nearly every action taken under President Trump has made armed conflict more instead of less likely,” she wrote.

“Trump imposed crippling sanction after crippling sanction on the Iranian people—depriving them of much-needed medical supplies during a pandemic and further tightening the brutal authoritarian regime’s grip on power. He ordered the assassination of an Iranian commander—risking all-out war—earlier this year. As a result of these actions, Iran finally backed out of the nuclear pact that Trump himself had torn up in 2018—and now has 12 times more enriched uranium than would have been permitted under the agreement.”

By contrast, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has praised the outcome of the Middle East agreements as indicative that former President Obama’s administration was wrong about the destabilizing impact of withdrawing from the Iran deal. 

“I remember Secretary Kerry saying that if the nuclear deal was abandoned that Israel would become more isolated when in fact just the opposite has now happened,” he previously told “The Story.”

Ilhan, Rashida, and AOC, along with the other members of the progressive left hate Israel, feel that the creation of the nation was a mistake, thus they side with the radicals that wish to undo this mistake. Sadly, this where the DNC is slowly headed, what is worse, you have the far left Jewish progressives inviting people like Rashida to speak at forums about antisemitism, I guess Farrakhan was booked that weekend.

She then gets into the true reason she wants the deals reversed:

And we must ask: What do these agreements mean to the millions of Palestinians who continue to live under Israeli military occupation? Rather than make statehood or self-determination more likely, they have normalized the occupation and made real peace for Israelis and Palestinians increasingly unlikely. In exchange for recognition, Israel supposedly agreed to halt its planned annexation of Palestinian land. But just this week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited an illegal Israeli settlement in the occupied West Bank and ordered that imports from these settlements be labeled “Products of Israel,” suggesting that de facto annexation will move forward apace. The autocrats in the Gulf seem to be OK with this arrangement. As the former director of the US Office of Israeli human rights group, B’Tselem Mitchell Plitnick wrote, “The motivations of the Gulf states are as clear as they are indifferent to the concerns of the Palestinians.”

Omar’s op-ed posited that President-elect Biden has “a tremendous opportunity to reverse this.”

“Instead of siding with one group of dictators over another, we should position ourselves at an equal distance from both, allowing ourselves to be honest brokers, protecting our national security and interests while promoting human rights and democracy,” she wrote. “We can hold Iran accountable for its human rights violations while also holding Saudi Arabia, Yemen, and the UAE accountable.”

Meanwhile, Trump has received copious praise for his foreign policy. Joining his colleagues in nominating Trump for a peace prize in September, an Australian law professor said the “Trump doctrine” was “extraordinary.”

“The Trump Doctrine is something extraordinary, like so many things that Donald Trump does,” said law professor David Flint. “He is guided by two things, which seem to be absent from so many politicians. He has firstly common sense and he is only guided by national interest, and therefore, in our circumstances, an interest in the Western alliance.”
