  • The Palestinians’ Automatic “No” to Peace – Shimrit Meir
    It’s hard to understand how the Palestinians, who are essentially living off hand-outs, summarily dismiss the opportunity to hear a proposal that might significantly improve their condition. One would at least expect some form of serious discussion about President Trump’s peace plan, given their situation.
    The Palestinian issue has been pushed to the margins. Mahmoud Abbas might still be able to extract a promise out of the elderly Saudi king not to go “behind the Palestinians’ backs,” but the entire world knows about the business his son conducts with Israel.
    One Egyptian TV anchor wondered, “If you [Palestinians] want a state alongside Israel, why do you keep saying ‘no’ again and again when offered one?” An Iraqi journalist tweeted this week, “If the Palestinian leadership used the money donated by the Arabs since 1948 for Palestine, it would’ve already built 50 cities like Tel Aviv, 40 cities like Dubai and 30 cities like Riyadh.”  (Ynet News)
