Time's up on Iran's Middle Eastern Forays

Time's up on Iran's Middle Eastern Forays

In the weeks before President Donald Trump visited Saudi Arabia on his first foreign trip, the Saudi government hired three United States lobbying firms to do its bidding in Washington, including an obscure group made up of former Trump advisers that will receive $5.4 million for one year's work, federal records show. Yet Trump's speech still characterized violence and extremism as an exclusively Muslim phenomenon. Senator Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat on the Senate foreign affairs committee, strongly opposes the sale, saying in a Huffington Post op-ed piece that Saudi Arabia has "the worst human rights record in the region".

Our vision is one of peace, security, and prosperity-in this region, and in the world. The "good Muslims", according to this idea, support those "war on terror" policies that result in the expansion of violence against mostly innocent people. If Israel agrees to influence the FBI's investigation through its lobbies, Tel Aviv will do so on the condition that the Trump administration will snap back some crushing sanctions on Iran.

A Middle East Treaty Organization aimed at defeating terrorism and countering Iranian hegemony could establish regional stability. They sponsor various terrorist groups, such as Hezbollah, who align against both Israel and other Muslim groups of the Sunni persuasion.

The religious division is an historic one between Arabs and Persians.

Fifteen of the 19 suicide terrorists that carried out the 9/11 attacks were from Saudi Arabia.

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation visit, the president met with the G-7 nations to discuss how to speed up growth in the world's largest free economies. Iran has the most risky potential for destruction in the area and to the world as a whole. Furthermore, should Tehran attain nuclear weapons, METO nations would be covered by Israel's nuclear deterrent. Not surprisingly, Syria and Iran did not attend. He also made history by becoming the first sitting U.S. President to visit the Wailing Wall, which is the most holy site in the Jewish faith.

Due to Trump's bold trip, American workers will benefit from the hundreds of billions of dollars in manufacturing jobs.

"In addition to supporting the long-term security of Saudi Arabia and the Gulf", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters, the deal "will bolster the kingdom's ability to contribute to counterterrorism operations across the region, and that will reduce the already heavy burden on the United States".

Saudis constitute the second largest nationality in the ranks of the Islamic State fighters. Additionally, the deal shows a long-term commitment by the U.S.to addressing terrorism where it lives.

Right-wing extremists are increasingly visible in the USA - from Dylann Roof in SC to the man in Portland who recently stabbed three people for defending Muslims on a train.

The Pentagon is concerned over the increasing clout of Russian Federation and Iran in the Middle East. Iran's continued supply of arms and monetary assistance have made Hezbollah so potent that it now poses a potential security threat to Israel - the United States protege in the Middle East. Consider this intro piece to that story: "This week's bombing in Manchester was another gruesome reminder that the threat from radical Islamic terrorism is ongoing".
