Rock Bottom for the Democrats
US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (C) leaves the House floor on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, on January 10, 2020. - US lawmakers concerned about rushing to war with Iran adopted a measure on January 9 aimed at reining in US President Donald Trump's ability to take military action against the Islamic Republic. The mostly symbolic but politically charged vote, 224 to 194, was largely along party lines, with three members of Trump's Republican Party joining Democrats in approving the measure demanding the president not engage in military action against Iran unless authorized by Congress.

Rock Bottom for the Democrats

Al-Jazirah, Saudi Arabia, January 24

I’m unsure what new bottom the Democrats and their media platforms might reach in their quest to discredit [US] President [Donald] Trump. To this day, they are questioning the legitimacy of the killing of [Iranian general] Qasem Soleimani, whose hands were covered in the blood of hundreds of thousands of people in the Middle East. It was remarkable that Trump even had to explain to the Democrats the reasons for which he ordered Soleimani’s killing. The repeated questioning of Trump’s motives is disgraceful; it puts the Democrats on the side of the Iranian mullahs, which even [former US] president Barack Obama – who was far from a hawk – would not dare do. In one of the political programs I recently watched on CNN, I could not believe what I was seeing. An entire panel of anti-Trump commentators was sitting in a studio and explaining to the American public how Trump’s decision to eliminate Soleimani was wrong and served as nothing short of an “insult” to America. This is total nonsense because Trump’s official statement, as well as those made by members of his administration, all confirmed that the targeting of Soleimani came in response to intelligence reports revealing Iran’s plans to commit terrorist acts against American interests in the region. As I listened to the speakers on the panel, I couldn’t help but wonder whether they were foolishly unaware of who Soleimani was or whether they were deliberately trying to mislead the viewers. This is truly a rock bottom in objective journalism. Sadly, I have a feeling that the Democrats’ hatred of Donald Trump may send them to new lows. Based on the current rhetoric on CNN, I have a sense that we’ve seen nothing yet. – Ahmad Al-Farraj (translated by Asaf Zilberfarb)
