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.
