The Steal of the Century
Trump's Israel/Palestine Plan is meant to fail
On FPF #449, I cover some of the details of Trump’s “Deal of the Century” and explain why it is meant to be rejected by the Palestinians.
While Trump claims the deal creates a Palestinian State, the deal actually gives limited autonomy to a collection of several small, disconnected areas that will be called Palestine. The Palestinians will not have a military and minimal border crossings.
For these reasons – and many more – the Palestinians denounced the peace plan.
I argue the point of the plan was for the Palestinians to reject it, so Israel will have the excuse to continue the occupation and theft of Palestinian land.

“I argue the point of the plan was for the Palestinians to reject it, so Israel will have the excuse to continue the occupation and theft of Palestinian land.”
Point well taken
The whole thing is a sham and a travesty. They don’t even have the decency to allow the Palestinians into the discussion of how their lands will be stolen. A least treaties made in the US involved the indigenous population even though the act was merely symbolic in many cases and followed by an endless trail of broken treaties.
Here the US with their “ally” Israel who is a prime suspect in the deaths of thousands of Americans on US soil and other false flag attacks around the world has reached down to lowest level of depravity.
