Wood said the idea that somehow Biden would make peace between the Israelis and Palestinians defies logic.

“Peace in the Middle East has to be something that those countries would like to achieve,” he said.

If Biden becomes the president, is the idea of “America First” something Biden would get rid of?

Wood explained if the Biden admin decided to rejoin the Iran Nuclear Deal, Iran will not rearrange its behavior and no one should expect them to.
