Kudos to the leadership of Morocco for this gesture. President Trump deserves the Nobel Peace Prize for his unbelievable accomplishments in the Middle East. We are going to appreciate President Trump much more in the coming months. That is because the Biden Administration is going to re-enter the Iran Nuclear Deal, which will provide billions of dollars in sanctions relief to the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. And when that happens, we are going to see chaos in the Middle East.

The agreements are aimed at normalizing relations and opening economic ties.Trump, who leaves office on Wednesday, has drawn some criticism over the Morocco agreement because to seal the deal, he agreed that the United States would recognize Morocco’s sovereignty over Western Sahara.Western Sahara has been the site of a decades-old territorial dispute between Morocco and the Algeria-backed Polisario Front, a breakaway movement that seeks to establish an independent state in the territory.The Kushner team had been working on reaching more agreements between Israel and the Arab world. But time has run out and no more are expected before Trump’s departure.Media were not allowed to witness the award ceremony.
