It’s happening alright.
It’s happening for real.
The Middle East is on the verge of a major war, Russia’s permanent representative to the UN, Vassily Nebenzia, has warned, commenting on the recent flare-up of hostilities between Israel and Hamas. The diplomat also condemned the “terrifying” level of violence witnessed in the region of late and called for an immediate ceasefire.
Speaking to the media following a closed-door meeting of the UN Security Council on Friday, Nebenzia said that the “region is on the brink of a full-fledged war and an unprecedented humanitarian catastrophe.” He noted that Russia “unequivocally condemns” the killings of both Israeli and Palestinian civilians. “What happened on Israeli territory on October 7 is unacceptable,” the official stressed.
According to the Russian diplomat, “responsibility for the brewing war in the Middle East lies in large measure with the US.” Nebenzia accused Washington of “irresponsibly and egoistically” blocking the work of the quartet of mediators comprising the UN, the US, EU, and Russia. He claimed that the US has been trying to monopolize the process and force its own vision of peace on Palestine, but without resolving the underlying causes of the conflict.
Yeah, that goes to the Abraham Accords, which were as dumb as Jared Kushner looks.
It was just a bunch of bribes.
Seriously – go look at the Wikipedia page. It goes through and lists what every country got in exchange for recognizing Israel.
South Sudan got removed from the terror list. Morocco got its sovereignty over Western Sahara recognized. Jordan got an electricity-for-water deal.
There was no actual peace deal. Palestine was not even involved. There was no discussion of the settlements. It was literally a fake peace deal. The dumbest thing imaginable.
That’s what led to this. The Palestinians felt they were backed into a corner, and there was no choice but to blow everything up and force Arab countries to pick a side.
