Liberal News Site Vox Credits Trump w/ ‘Big Win’ for Israel-Arab Peace Agreement

'Two long-estranged nations have agreed to be openly friendly with each other, and the US helped...'

Vox is a left-wing news website that purports to offer highbrow “explainer” articles for policy wonks and people concerned with fact-driven journalism.

It’s also viciously anti-Trump, and the site’s former Washington Post “Wonkblog” founder Ezra Klein regularly bashes the president on MSNBC and Twitter.

On Friday morning, the site published an article praising Trump for brokering an historic peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, both longtime enemies.

“A lot of details remain to be worked out, but this is still a really big agreement,” the sub-headline reads. The opening paragraph admits that “it may not have happened without the input of President Donald Trump’s administration.”

Israel and the UAE agreed to normalize relations and develop ties in numerous areas including investment, security, tourism, technology, and energy.

The formerly hostile governments also agreed to establish formal embassies in each other’s countries.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been the white-hot issue that has long put the Jewish state at odds with the Muslim dominated Middle East region.

The new joint agreement, however, includes an Israeli stipulation to “suspend declaring sovereignty over” parts of the Palestinian West Bank.

Israeli had previously announced its intention to annex the disputed territory.

In exchange, Arab leaders in Abu Dhabi, UAE committed to becoming the third Middle Eastern country to declare friendly relations with the Israeli government.

“Two long-estranged nations have agreed to be openly friendly with each other, and the US helped — giving Trump one of his biggest foreign policy victories as the election draws near,” Vox concluded.

Trump also hinted in the Oval Office that more “things are happening,” while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted in Hebrew that Thursday is “A historic day.”
