Since the early days of the Trump admin we have been promised the “deal of the century” to solve the conundrum of the Palestine/Israel situation……and we wait.
Since my interests are mostly in the Middle East I have been watching this situation with interest….as well as writing about it…….https://lobotero.com/2018/03/28/deal-of-the-century/
Well it is back….the media has been teasing the viewer with a promise of the release of the “Deal”…..
The master of this “solution” is Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner….and he has been in the Middle East meeting with the players of the saga as a precursor to the release of the “Deal of the Century”….at least that is what the admin and the media would have us believe.
According to reports the release is just a mere days away……and then the push back started….
President Donald Trump said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo “may be right” in his raw assessment of the administration’s Middle East peace plan.
Speaking to reporters Sunday, Trump responded to a Washington Post report that Pompeo had described the administration’s plan for lasting peace between Israel and the Palestinians arguably “unexecutable.” Pompeo also said that the plan — which is being devised by Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and former Trump lawyer Jason Greenblatt — “may be rejected” and that critics would call it “not particularly original,” the Post reported based on a recording of Pompeo’s comments.
Israel will be the only winner in any deal from these biased players…..all the major deal makers are Jewish…..
But my favorite is the d/bag we have at the State Dept, Pompeo……
Facing some pessimism on the Israel peace process since his own comments were published Sunday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is feverishly walking back what he said, to the point where he is attacking others who echoed his own comments.
That the US peace plan is going to be deliberately biased in favor of Israel is no secret, and has been one of the few things known about it since the White House confirmed this in early February, saying the US plan would be “proudly” in favor of Israel.
Last week, Pompeo spoke to the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, telling them he didn’t have a lot of hope for the plan being accepted. When he called it “a deal that only the Israelis could love,” it wasn’t seen as a ground-breaking addition, more of an aside to his pessimism.
Does anyone think that anything fromDC these days will have anybody’s interests other than Israel?
As the US government has admitted, economic investment in Palestine will be ineffective without a political solution to the conflict. Given their lack of information on the US vision, Europeans whom the White House invites to the economic workshop are effectively being asked to invest in a project that has no clearly defined end goal. This initiative could even entrench a one-state reality of unequal rights for Palestinians under indefinite occupation, a situation that will increasingly resemble apartheid.
Palestinians will reject this “Deal”….and as they should…..Israel has gotten all the favored status for too long….any debt the West owes Israel has long been paid in full….they need to step into the 21st century and act like a responsible civilized nation.
This is not a deal for the two people but rather a deal that would allow Israel to eradicate the Palestinian identity.
