Trump assigned the idea for a Middle East peace plan to his incompetent son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Last week, in a thinly veiled political stunt, Donny Boy and Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, faked enthusiasm over what they claimed to be the result of a three-year “effort.” It turned out to be a gift to Israeli leaders, and a sham for the Palestinian people. For Israel’s neighbors it offered the status quo or worse. The only way peace will ever exist in the region is when the Palestinian people are given statehood. Anyone who knows the truth about the Middle East will confirm this as fact.
Palestinian leaders adamantly rejected the plan, so, what does the European Union think about this farce?
In a statement, European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell stressed that the EU is committed to a “negotiated two-State solution, based on 1967 lines, with equivalent land swaps, as may be agreed between the parties, with the State of Israel and an independent, democratic, contiguous, sovereign and viable State of Palestine, living side by side in peace, security and mutual recognition.”
There’s a two-fold problem here; it makes sense, and our current government and Netanyahu would veto any such resolution in the United Nations.
In reality, there are few disagreements between Jews and Muslims in daily life. The problem exists between leaders; primarily Netanyahu. He has consistently refused to negotiate in good faith with Palestinian leaders.
Not once before in my 73+ years have I witnessed an American president whose life continues to be riddled with abject failure. Both his personal and private life fail to contain a single significant accomplishment. Millions of uninformed voters gave us the worst president in our nation’s history, and the worst person in the world.
