Geopolitical analyst, Brandon J. Weichert, assesses the importance of the Abraham Accords for real Mideast peace and calls for the Biden Administration build off this agreement rather than scuttle it.
Erik Khzmalyan writes, “In the end, it is the proxy countries that pay the price for the mistakes made by external powers. In this case, we might see Syria disappear from the world map in a century that so hopelessly claimed that geopolitics is a thing of the past.”
Unless President Trump is willing to fully commit to the Mideast by embracing a long-term strategy of linkage, the Administration should discontinue any efforts to bring peace to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“By focusing purely on shared national interests, President Trump has overcome what has been a major impediment to U.S. foreign policy in the Mideast: Arab parochialism.”
