Why are the Palestinian so afraid of a Palestinian state?

Abbas & Co. called the plan, “biased” because Trump’s peace plan demands the Palestinians stop killing Jews, respect Press, Religious, & Human Rights, adopt government transparency, and maintain a reliable judicial system to earn an endorsement for a Palestinian State.

By Boaz Bismuth

 

We live in historical times. The Arab Israelis, who have always been very suspicious of “occupying” Israel, now embrace Israeli rule and exclaim that they wish to remain part of Israel even if the Palestinians fulfill their national aspirations and see a state established.

US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan has pledged many benefits for Israel and has set a series of preconditions the Palestinian must meet, including relinquishing all forms of terrorism and adopting proper governance practices. Continue Reading »

Yasser Arafat set the tone for the PA when he arrived in Gaza in 1994. Continue Reading »

Analysis: The Arabs will never make peace with Israel & Trump can’t make them

UPDATED: The U.S. & EU are no longer able to continue funding the Palestinians, while both are struggling with millions of illegal migrants pouring into their countries.
– President Trump’s ‘Deal of the Century’ will theoretically supply answers/solutions, but will Palestinian leaders break from tradition, and accept Statehood?

UPDATED: Why A Two-State Solution Will Never Happen

There are three major reasons why a two-State Solution has never materialized, in spite of previous attempts by several Israeli prime ministers & American presidents. They are Religion, Politics, and of course, the exorbitant personal financial gains to the leaders themselves, proving the need to change the Palestinian leadership, and their national agenda of funding violence to perpetuate the status quo.

By Phillip Pasmanick

 

The political reasons:

Every attempt to secure an agreement of peace has been refused by Arab leadership.

    • Peace would/should mean the Arab’s end to ‘war/conflict’ with Israel and the Jews. – But that thought is seen as intolerable, unacceptable, even as a total betrayal of beliefs among radical Islamists in the Palestinian Authority.
