Trump: Palestinians are the reason for no peace or Palestinian state

 

Trump: Incessant Palestinian terror & incitement are preventing Palestinian state, “…the Palestinian Authority has to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. …[and they] have to stop the terror, stop the attacks, stop the teaching of hatred.”

US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at the weekend made it abundantly clear that he sees the Palestinian leadership as being at fault for the lack of Middle East peace agreement.

Trump told The New York Times that while he supports a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it is the Palestinians themselves that have prevented such an outcome.

“…the Palestinian Authority has to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state. …[and they] have to stop the terror, stop the attacks, stop the teaching of hatred,” the billionaire insisted, stressing that in order to reach a two-state peace deal “you have to get those basic things done.”

Trump was particularly disturbed by the ongoing incitement in Palestinian society.

“They have to stop the teaching of children to aspire to grow up as terrorists, which is a real problem,” he said.

Of course, the recognition of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state is also a major sticking point, with the current Palestinian leadership repeatedly refusing to meet that basic condition.

Trump noted that these shouldn’t be difficult conditions to accept, “except that the ingrained hatred is tremendous.”

    Three states Mr. Trump. All the people in Gaza are not dead yet and they deserve their freedom from Israeli domination.
    ___One day I will teach that man how to count.

      The people of Gaza are dominated, oppressed and murdered by PA and Hammas. You should learn to pay attention to the facts. Unless you feel, that it would hurt your right to hate jews freely.

      Israel should just give Gaza to Egypt.

      • lol …as if no one thought about that!!

        The Israel-Egypt peace treaty was dependent on 2 things. Every ‘grain of sand’ taken, was returned to Egypt, and Gaza must remain with Israel and cannot be returned or forced back on Egypt.

        A joke here in Israel is that the Peace between us, will remain no matter how much the Egyptians hate us, because they hate the Gazans (who renamed themselves Palestinians) more.
