Jimmy DeYoung: Mahmoud Abbas, who heads up the Palestinian Authority, sent congratulations to Biden at the same time he sent a demand. He is wanting to have the US Embassy move back to Tel Aviv. Is there any way possible that the Israelis would allow for that?
David Dolan: No I don’t thinks so. The Democratic party was a part of the 1990 Senate Resolution calling for the Embassy to be moved to Jerusalem that I don’t think will happen. We won’t see so much of a reversal of policy, they don’t expect that. And certainly the peace deals that have been negotiated as we said last week will remain in place. The only difference will be with Iran and that is a major difference.
JD: But not only with Iran, the Palestinians. You mentioned just a moment ago that Kamala Harris already made a public statement that they’re going to restore aide to the Palestinians, renew ties with the Palestinians. Boy that doesn’t bode well as far as the Israelis are concerned does it?
DD: The Israelis made peace with the Palestinians Jimmy. The Oslo Accord were signed and it was the Palestinians that didn’t stick with those Accords. It’s not something Israel is favoring but its what they expect under a Democratic Administration. Turning that back is going to be difficult if the Republicans retain control of the Senate which is likely. There will be changes back to the old policies but not a complete reversion to it. And again there’s a great debate in Israel though now about why didn’t Netanyahu annex when he could have under the Trump Administration that seems to have passed now. There’s a lot of people upset with that missed opportunity those people that don’t think the peace with the UAE and Bahrain is worth losing that annexation.
JD: David Dolan explaining that the Palestinian leaders are demanding that the Biden Administration move the US Embassy back to Tel Aviv from Jerusalem and restart the United States funding of the Palestinian Authority which will fund terrorism in their struggle to destroy the Jewish state.
