Eric Margolis discusses President Trump’s recent peace deals between Israel and some of the Arab states. First Margolis explains that these aren’t really peace deals; what they do is simply make public the normalization of relations between countries that were already tacitly at peace. More importantly, they help further isolate the Palestinians from their supposed allies, which will most likely make it much easier for Israel to continue annexation in the future. Finally, these deals strengthen relationships between U.S. arms manufacturers and foreign government buyers, something that Trump thinks is great for the American economy, but which in reality only enriches a select group at the expense of the rest of us.
