Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas tells UN Security Council the world should reject US President Trump's Mideast plan, calling it a "Swiss cheese" deal that would limit Palestinian sovereignty without bringing lasting peace.
There is not a single extremist Israeli position which the US has not adopted or embraced in its so-called 'peace plan'.
The "Deal of the Century" puts Palestinians in an impossible position. Israel will hold them all collectively responsible for rejecting the deal, even though they have no state that can represent them in negotiations.
The plan throws global diplomatic conventions out the window and opens the door for a future where only might is right.
Experts believe the plan does not give any real options to Palestinians, leaving them with no choice but to resist the Israeli occupation.
Saudi Arabia, the UAE and other Arab states are facing criticism for disregarding Palestinian aspirations and allowing the US to draft a partisan deal on the Israel-Palestine conflict.
As the 2020 US elections are underway, the deal is aimed at securing the support of evangelicals, who made up more than 80 percent of Trump's electorate in 2016 presidential election.
Is this the most insulting peace offering in recent history?
The custodians of Islam’s two holiest sites have conveniently distanced themselves from many issues affecting Muslims.
While Trump cancelled financial support for Palestinians last year, Congress is now offering a $150 million aid package to them and also favours the two-state solution, an idea Trump seems unsure about.
Israeli politicians no longer have the Palestinians or Arabs to unite voters against and are forced to face battle the country's internal contradictions and deep polarisation.
The former Israeli prime minister believes that a government without Benjamin Netanyahu will be less provocative and an ‘improvement’ for Palestinian-Israeli relations. He also thinks leaving the Iran nuclear deal was a mistake.
