If Hitler Only Thought Like President Trump and Jared Kushner

It's out a Donald Trump, Jared Kushner, Israeli-Palestinian "Peace" Plan.

The plan says:
The principles set forth in this Vision for Peace, Prosperity and a Brighter Future (collectively, this “VISION”), are designed for the benefit of Palestinians, Israelis and the region as a whole...
The Palestinians deserve a better future and this Vision can help them achieve that future. Palestinian leaders must embrace peace by recognizing Israel as the Jewish state, rejecting terrorism in all its forms, allowing for special arrangements that address Israel’s and the region’s vital security needs, building effective institutions and choosing pragmatic solutions. If these steps are taken and the criteria set forth in this Vision are satisfied, then the United States will support the establishment of a Palestinian State...
Approximately 97% of Israelis in the West Bank will be incorporated into contiguous Israeli territory, and approximately 97% of Palestinians in the West Bank will be incorporated into contiguous Palestinian territory... 
The Jordan Valley, which is critical for Israel’s national security, will be under Israeli sovereignty. Notwithstanding such sovereignty, Israel should work with the Palestinian government to negotiate an agreement in which existing  agricultural enterprises owned or controlled by Palestinians shall continue without interruption or discrimination, pursuant to appropriate licenses or leases granted by the State of Israel.
Of course, there appears to be no input from Palestinians about this plan, sometimes referred to by President Trump as an "agreement." It's a Trump-Kushner production for the benefit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Eric Margolis writes:
We have not seen such an example of breathtaking cynicism and perfidy until this week when President Donald Trump unveiled his so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ as his final solution to the fate of the long-suffering Palestinians.
Standing next to Trump was Israel’s beaming Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who just got more land than his far-right, expansionist coalition had even dreamed of... 
Palestinian’s claim of a right of return for their 5 million refugees scattered around Israel’s borders will be forever rejected.  Israel’s right wing says there is no room for any Palestinians, though room was found in previous years for one million Russians, Jews and non-Jews.  More are hoped for if Vladimir Putin gives the green light.  All attempts by Palestine to seek remedies from the International Court of Justice will be quashed.
One wonders how the world would have reacted if Adolph Hitler after occupying parts of France and Poland called a press conference and issued a "Peace" Plan that, like Trump's in form, called for Germany to remain in control of areas of France and Poland that were occupied by German troops---for German national security reasons of course. And that would allow France and Poland to retain areas where there were no German troops. How wonderful for France and Poland!

The idea would be as absurd as the Trump-Kushner "Peace" plan.

Margolis again:
The Trump-Bibi theft of ancestral Arab lands [via this plan] condemns Arabs and Jews to another five decades of violence and hatred.  


  1. Trump is a dedicated bullshit artist and political hack, but he made one truthful comment in announcing his vainglorious “Vision”. He said the Palestinians aren’t going to like it.

  2. Why are we even involved with any of this?
