In an attempt to try and look good before the election, Donald Trump announced a peace treaty agreement on August 13th, 2020 between Israel and the UAE (United Arab Emirates). It’s called “The Abraham Accord”, and anyone can view the official transcript here.
Mr. David Freeman explained why it is named after Abraham at the announcement ceremony when Trump asked him to clarify it to the public. “Thank you Mr. President,” he began, “And congratulations to you on brokering this historic peace agreement. Abraham, as many of you know, was the father of all three great faiths. He’s referred to as Abraham in the Christian faith. Ibrahim in the Muslim faith and Abraham in the Jewish faith. And no person better symbolizes the potential for unity among all these three great faiths than Abraham. And that’s why this accord has been given that name.”
The Abraham Accord Peace Treaty Cover Up
Peace is always a good thing whenever it can actually be accomplished anywhere in the world. And, this treaty, in itself, is a good thing. Still, many are inclined to think that Trump is finally doing something like this now, only because the election is coming up. Some citizen’s feel as if he is trying to have something to campaign with, something good to say about himself, as if he’s some kind of “peacemaker”.
This treaty also helps out the image and reputation of the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, whose reputation, according to foreign publications such as The Middle East Monitor, has been in shreds for some time now, just like Trump’s. In fact, the way young people in the U.S. feel about their president (especially the way he has mishandled and/or ignored very serious issues like COVID-19) is the exact same way the young people of Israel feel about Netanyahu.
Why? Because he is doing the exact same thing there.
Just take a look at this 4-minute video from Reuters, published on July 31, 2020, and you’ll see what America will begin to look like if Trump is re-elected, and nothing is done about the current direction our government and society is moving into. Neither him or Netanyahu care about “peace”, and all you have to do is look at what is going on in the streets of both the U.S. and Israel right now with its citizens to see that.
The treaty is a good thing, and it does help relations in those areas of the world. But, the context in which it was done (to paint a false image of themselves to carry out their interior motives), makes these two world leaders, Trump and Netanyahu, look just as fake and manipulative as their citizens have always seen them. And, both societies, Israel and the U.S., are currently suffering severely from their uncaring and selfish ways of leadership.
How the Abraham Accord Peace Treaty Helps Trump and Netanyahu
As American’s, we know first-hand from living here in the U.S. why Trump would need to try and look like a peacemaker right now, just weeks before an election. It’s because his reputation is so messed up that American’s would have to be insane to vote him back in again.

But, when you view the chaos, homelessness, violence and sickness the COVID-19 virus has caused the people of Israel because of their similar-minded leader, Prime Minister Netanyahu, you’ll better understand why this peace treaty that the two of them collaborated on in August, 13th 2020, “The Abraham Accord”, was to pull the blinders over the eyes of people in other parts of the world (outside of the U.S. or Israel) who really don’t look beyond a calm leader speaking on a television screen, who is supposedly representing a country where everything is “just fine”.
Outsiders don’t see directly what is really going on every day in the streets of these nations, specifically the U.S. and Israel, where Trump and Netanyahu have both successfully developed lying to the rest of the world almost into some sickening kind of art form.
In March of 2019, The Associated Press published an article that showed just the types of scandals that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been involved with. For example, in his first term, he and his wife were accused of “pocketing gifts and foreign contributions received from world leaders” as well as “double billing travel expenses and using state funds to cover personal travel in the 2000s”.
In 2016, reports indicated that Netanyahu “spent more than $600,000 of public funds on a six-day trip to New York”, and spent “$127,000 in public funds for a special sleeping cabin on a five-hour flight to London”.
But, the worst of all of his horrible leadership is how he has just chosen to ignore the Coronavirus, and the direct effect that it is having on the people in his country.
