The ‘deal’ would invite ridicule because it brazenly upholds Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people ...
This triumphalism was fully justified — the plan meets every item on Israel’s wish list.
This deal, both in the short and long term, is a catalyst for violence and instability.
For Trump, the unveiling of the plan is a strategic election ploy to shore up his support among Evangelicals and right-wing Jewish voters.
Trump has proven to be a savvy leader who knows that timing can be everything.
After the second Knesset elections, Trump openly declared that he had no contact with Netanyahu and played down the latter’s importance to the Washington-Tel Aviv alliance.
The traditional, historically rooted aversion to nationalism and authoritarianism is pushing the Jews away from the Republicans.
The announcement breaks with four decades of American diplomacy and international consensus.
As we know from history, deciding who is right and who is wrong is the only way of bringing peace, for Israel just as much as the Palestinian people.
