Daniel Pipes grades Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I discussed President Trump's speech in Saudi Arabia with Dr. Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum.

He explained how this speech signifies the Trump administration's more aggressive approach to conflict in the Middle East.

Trump signed a multi-billion dollar arms deal with the Saudis, so we discussed the merit of this agreement and what these weapons could be used for. 

Trump also visited Israel, where he became the first sitting American president to visit the Western Wall, an act that proves his administration stands with Israel

WATCH my interview to see how Dr. Pipes grades Trump speech.

I really can’t understand Iran’s stupidity. All they have to do is cave and they can have the same bliss as Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Egypt, Sudan and the tropical paradise of Somalia. And after all, as Danial Pipes noted, everyone in the region is worried about Iran. Because Iran toppled Saddam, committed genocide against the Kurds, attacked Syria, toppled governments in Yemen, Libya and Egypt and followed it up with a mass migration-invasion of Europe. Not to mention harboring Bin Laden, creating ISIS and Al Qaeda, and of course being the master minds behind 9/11. And invading Iraq in 1980. And don’t get me started on how women are treated in Iran compared to the feminist bliss that is Saudi Arabia. Yup, those damn Iranians.

I’m off the train.

I command him for denouncing islam to that bunch of criminals. But speeches will do nothing, while selling to murderers billions of dollars of armement. And now, they want us to destroy Iran. I guess Irak, Afghanistan, Lybia, Syria, was not enough. After the elimination of the chiites, their mortal enemies, the sunni arabs will directly turn their armement against us.

Could never understand the billions in building Saudis Airforce was about. Can the Saudis actually fly these things? If so, what the hell are they for?

I don’t much care what Mr. Pipes thinks.

I saw the speech live. It was epic. Even though Trump was visibly tired, he delivered it straight, blunt and yet respectful. It is a speech that will be studied by the Muslim world and SHOULD be studied here but our Media Party would rather flog Democrat conspiracy theories.
