Trump Delivers Israeli-Moroccan 'Abraham' Accord--But At What Cost?

Description

Morocco is now the fourth Arab state this year to announce it would establish relations with Israel. According to CNN, it was another diplomatic win for the Trump administration. However, it may create some trouble for the incoming Biden administration. That's because the Trump administration agreed that the US would recognize the long-disputed Western Sahara region. The largely Sahrawi population has fought for self-determination for four decades under the banner of the Polisario Front. The UN and European Union describe Western Sahara as a 'non-self-governing territory.' Political and security risk consultant Geoff Porter says the US'​ abrupt reversal of its policy dramatically increases the likelihood of renewed regional conflict.

  • Trial Commences For Iranians Who Tried To Kill 25,000, Including Rudy Giuliani

    An Iranian diplomat and three others have gone on trial in Belgium. The case is noteworthy because the three men and one woman are accused of planning a terrorist attack on a rally where Rudy Giuliani was the keynote speaker. Prosecutors say the targeted event was a rally held in Villepinte, France, on June 30, 2018. Fortunately, a tip from Mossad thwarted the attack. According to Business Insider, Iran's Assadollah Assadi was not in the dock--having claimed diplomatic immunity. Maryam Rajavi, leader of the exiled Iranian opposition group known as MEK, was the main target of the attack. If the powerful bomb had exploded, it could have exploded in a packed crowd of 25,000. Other prominent public figures who attended, included Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the US House of Representatives.
