Arabs: ‘US President Decided to Tamper with [Middle East] Security for No Reason..

Khaled Abu Toameh

Gatestone Institute, July 26, 2022

Many Arabs believe that US President Joe Biden’s recent visit to the Middle East was a failure, mainly because the Arab countries still do not have confidence in his administration’s policies. The Arabs point out that one of Biden’s biggest mistakes was that he took America’s Arab allies for granted while embarking on a policy of appeasement towards Iran’s mullahs.

The Arabs are saying that Biden failed to promote normalization between Israel and Saudi Arabia, convince the Saudis to increase oil production, and establish a security alliance to confront the threats from Iran and its proxies. He also failed to achieve a breakthrough in the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace process, they note.

“The Biden administration made major mistakes in its relations with its historical allies in the region, which came in the context of the legacy of the era of former President Barack Obama and his strange bias towards the so-called Iran Option,” wrote Lebanese journalist Ali Hamadeh. “The Biden administration made this option a priority in its foreign policy in order to reach a nuclear agreement with Iran.”
