President Trump in the last days of his campaign carries with him the credit of a Nobel Prize nomination for his peace efforts in the Middle East. President Trump has been nominated for Nobel Peace prize by Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde. Christian Tybring Gjedde is a member of the Norwegian Parliament for the far right progress party.
He said, Trump should be nominated to be considered for the Nobel Peace Prize because of his work for a peace agreement between the United Arab Emirates and Israel which opens up for possible peace in the Middle East. He continued by saying to the Associated Press, No matter how Trump acts at home, and what he says at Press Conferences, he has actually a chance at winning the Nobel Peace prize.
The Nobel Peace Prize is one of the five Nobel Prizes established by the will of Swedish Industrialist Alfred Nobel. Since March 1901 it has been awarded annually to those that have done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations. The Norwegian Parliament appoints the Nobel Peace Committee, which selects the Nobel Peace laureate. Each year the committee specifically invites qualified people to submit nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. The deadline for applications each year is on Feb 1.
President Trump was also nominated for Nobel Peace Prize in 2018 for his work to bring reconciliation between North and South Korea. The nomination for 2021 is for his work to succeed in the impossible job of bringing together three Arab nations United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, and Sudan with Israel.
No one expected that President Trump would succeed in the middle of the dispute between Israel and Palestine over control of the West Bank. Israel and the Palestinian authority have yet to meet to negotiate over peace between the two nations. President Trump and his assistant Jarad Kushner began to work to bring Israel together with its neighbors through an economic meeting in Bahrain.
Kushner explained at this meeting the economic portion of the Deal of the Century which would be a final settlement between Israel and Palestine. The Palestine authority and representative from Gaza did not attend this meeting in Bahrain.
President Trump has strongly believed that Jerusalem should be considered the capital of Israel and moved his embassy to Jerusalem. As part of the Deal of the Century portions of the West Bank and Judah would be annexed by Israel to give Israel security and to protect Israel settlements which have already been built and are populated.
The territories called the captured territories were divided in a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan in 1993 called the Oslo Accords. Israelis have been able to expand their settlements in Area A part of the territories. In Area C the Palestinians had full autonomy. Israel under the leadership of Netanyahu was willing to go ahead with the Deal of the Century and begin to annex those portions belonging to Israel Area A. The Palestinians have still not been willing to recognize Israel as an independent state and Gaza which was surrendered to them has been used as a fortress storing arms and a base for shooting missiles into Israel.
The more liberal Arab nations are not willing to wait for Palestine to agree on peace. They took the initiative to jump the step of Palestinian peace to receive the help of America economically and for stabilization of the area. Egypt which has already made peace with Israel in 1979 stands behind President Trump in his efforts to bring the region to stability.
President Trump by cancelling the Nuclear Treaty made with Iran by President Obama prevented Iran from interfering in peace negotiations. Iran is still considered a supporter of terrorism.
