Arab policy isn’t determined by the Palestinian issue

Arab countries have never flexed their military muscle—and barely their financial muscle—on behalf of the Palestinians. Now, in 2020, Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and other pro-U.S. Arab countries base their national security policy on issues which far transcend the Palestinian one. These issues include lethal threats posed by Iran’s ayatollahs, the Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the spillover of the civil wars in Libya, Syria, Iraq and Yemen, the potential implosion of all Arab countries, etc. Indeed, these Arab countries view Israel’s posture of deterrence as a most valuable asset in the face of the aforementioned lethal threats.

In the video, which aired on May 22, the narrator says that the world has been shocked that virus has prevented children from going out to play, while Israel has been bombing hospitals and killing children. It is clear in which “lab” Israel was created, says the narrator, and adds that becoming stronger and increasing

New Presidential Executive Order Boosts US Efforts for International Religious Freedom

President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on Tuesday that boosts American efforts to promote religious freedom internationally by providing a $50 million annual budget for educational, training and advocacy programs. The order places additional focus on the Special Watch List of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) — those countries “which require close monitoring due to the nature and extent of violations of religious freedom engaged in or tolerated by the governments.” US President Donald Trump signed a new executive order on Tuesday that boosts American efforts to promote religious freedom internationally by providing a $50 million annual budget for educ
