Americans can't figure out why Israelis are fighting with Palestinians when Trump and Kushner achieved 'peace' in the Middle East
A far-right Norwegian politician nominated former President Donald Trump for the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize after he and Jared Kushner claimed to achieve peace in the Middle East.
"I'm going to get a Nobel Prize for a lot of things — if they gave it out fairly, which they don't," Trump claimed in 2019.
"Nobel Peace, can you imagine?" Trump said in Sept. 2020. That month he continued to brag about himself on Twitter almost two dozen times.
But as Israelis and Palestinians are firing rockets at each other, it has become clear that the grand Middle East peace promise never really happened.
The battles came after Kushner launched the Abraham Accords Institute for Peace "to promote his major accomplishment when he advised his father-in-law, former US President Donald Trump: the normalization agreements between Israel and a number of Sunni Arab countries," said The Times of Israel earlier this month.
"The Abraham Accords, signed in September 2020, were arguably Trump's biggest foreign policy achievement and the biggest breakthrough for relations between Israel and the Arab world for 25 years," said Axios. That was until 10 days later when the bombs started flying.
It continues to be a question from many online who watch as more and more explosions happen across the area.

The Axios "Off the Rails" series outlined what went on from election night through the Jan. 6 siege on the U.S. Capitol. The installation reviews former President Donald Trump's final attempts to remove all U.S. forces before leaving office.
"John McEntee, one of Donald Trump's most-favored aides, handed retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor a piece of paper with a few notes scribbled on it," said Axios.
"This is what the president wants you to do," McEntee told Macgregor, "1. Get us out of Afghanistan, 2. Get us out of Iraq and Syria, 3. Complete the withdrawal from Germany, 4. Get us out of Africa."
McEntee was just a 29-year-old staffer who was essentially told to send a secret withdrawal order to the Secretary of Defense without the National Security Council, chief of staff or Department of Defense knowing.
Macgregor told McEntee to use "a presidential decision memorandum" and model it off of that.
The information about the final days of Trump may be nothing more than a desperate plea at the last minute, but as MIT Associate Professor Vipin Narang it shows something far more sinister. If Trump could order a troop withdrawal secretly, there's much more he could have done despite security barriers in place to prevent it.
"A lot of people I respect a lot insisted in Jan. that there was no way Trump could invoke his sole authority to launch e.g. a single low yield nuclear weapon against Fordow because guardrails existed to prevent that," he tweeted. "Well….that presumes Trump wasn't actively trying to bypass them."

Lawyer and general Florida troublemaker Daniel Uhlfelder unearthed a 2017 interview where Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) gave a glowing endorsement to his friend Joel Greenberg for Congress.
Speaking to WFLA about defeating Rep. Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), who beat Rep. John Mica (R-FL) in 2016, Gaetz explained that Greenberg was the way to win back the district.
"Who do you believe has the best shot of defeating Stephanie Murphy in Florida's 7th Congressional District?" asked the host.
"That is a Republican seat. That is a seat that really should be won by Republicans," said Gaetz. "Joel Greenberg has gone to the Seminole County Tax Collector's office and been a disrupter. If you look at what people want in the country right now, they want that disrupter. A majority of that district is in Seminole County. Stephanie lives in Orange County. If Joel Greenberg were to run for Congress from that district, I think he becomes the next congressman from the 7th district."
Greenberg is scheduled to plead guilty to six charges, down from 33, on Monday.
