Prepare for more war from the party of terror and depravity.
Read the recent exchange between President Trump’s envoy to Israel David M. Friedman and President Obama’s envoy to Israel Dan Shapiro. This exchange perfectly summarizes the dangers of the Biden Administration’s approach to Saudi Arabia, and specifically the Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. The Biden Administration is going to be a total disaster for the Middle East. It’s Obama 3.0.
Obama tried this too. He took an American ally, pushed it closer to the Muslim Brotherhood and almost destroyed Egypt, its people and its Peace Treaty with Israel. Does your team have any ideas besides bad ideas? https://t.co/Za9kBlSBvv

Biden’s Courting Trouble With Policy on Saudis
Humiliating Prince Could Bring Unintended Consequences
By Karen Elliot House, Special to the Sun | March 1, 2021
President Biden is seeking to burnish his human rights credentials — and once again distinguish himself from Donald Trump — by putting a bullseye on Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Playing politics with an ally in such a dangerous part of the world risks unanticipated and unfortunate consequences for the United States.
In releasing a three-year-old American intelligence report that blames the Crown Prince for the murder of Saudi writer, Jamal Khashoggi, and then immediately saying he won’t penalize the Crown Prince, Mr. Biden has opened himself to relentless pressure from democrats on the left of his party to do something more to punish the Saudi Crown Prince.
Biden Says Saudi Announcement to Come Monday; White House Plays Down New Steps
By Algemeiner, February 28, 2021
President Joe Biden on Saturday said his administration would make an announcement on Saudi Arabia on Monday, following a US intelligence report that found Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had approved the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The Biden administration has faced some criticism, notably an editorial in the Washington Post, that the president should have been tougher on the crown prince, who was not sanctioned despite being blamed for approving Khashoggi’s murder.
Asked about punishing the crown prince, Saudi Arabia’s de facto ruler, who is also known as MbS, Biden said: “There will be an announcement on Monday as to what we are going to be doing with Saudi Arabia generally.”
Biden did not provide details.
But a White House official suggested no new significant steps were expected.
“The administration took a wide range of new actions on Friday. The president is referring to the fact that on Monday, the State Department will provide more details and elaborate on those announcements, not new announcements,” the official said.
Khashoggi, a US resident who wrote opinion columns for the Washington Post critical of MbS policies, was killed and dismembered by a team of operatives linked to the prince in the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul in October 2018.
The Saudi government, which has denied any involvement by the crown prince, on Friday issued a statement rejecting the US report’s findings and repeating its previous statements that Khashoggi’s killing was a heinous crime by a rogue group.
Among the punitive steps the United States took on Friday was the imposition of a visa ban on some Saudis believed involved in the Khashoggi killing and sanctions on others, including a former deputy intelligence chief, which would freeze their US assets and generally bar Americans from dealing with them.
