GSA Releases Funds, Beginning Biden Transition

The United States’ General Services Administration (GSA) has begun to pave the way for the formal transition of the Biden Administration that was being blocked by the Trump administration.

Two Steps Taken, More Steps Needed

Kudos to President Donald Trump, Jared Kushner and their diplomatic team.  They have added the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain to the list of Arab countries that recognize Israel as a legal entity and via the “Abraham Accords” agree to normalize diplomatic and other relations.

In recognition of President Trump’s brokerage of the Accords, a Norwegian official has nominated him for a Nobel Peace Prize, seemingly totally oblivious of the fact that the peace deals between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain represent only two small steps in a complicated and lengthy process toward Middle East peace.  Agreements between Arabs and Palestinians, Sunnis and Shia, Arabs and Iranians must be achieved before a lasting Middle East peace becomes a reality.
