  1. An incisive analysis of a proposal that is not just a slap in the face of the Palestinians, but a complete grinding into the ground of them. And, just to repeat the obvious and mentioned before, the US lost its last hair-sized bit of credibility as an ‘honest’ and ‘objective’ peace broker when it decided to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and with Trump proudly announcing that with that he had taken the intractable issue of East Jerusalem off the table – what a deal maker !!

  2. the u.s. is no longer the honest broker it once was. how can you trust anyone who brakes signed agreements and regulations just BECAUSE. who can trust a racist country no better than south africa way back then.
    will israel keep its word or will it learn from trump
    all this is immaterial.
    none of the actors are honest, period. so to microanalyze details is pointless
    had this been another president another era, perhaps. but no more, the situation will remain as is until a major blowup brings the real people to the real table for sure it will never be the current bottom of the barrel humankind currently leading
    lord save us

  3. I’ve been to convention with Palestinians from the West Bank and was surprised to learn they don’t care much about the right to return.
    In addition, they were not willing to allow Palestinian refugees from outside of Israel/Palestine in bc the Palestinian economy won’t be able to support them.
    I was shocked to hear that. It was very pragmatic and very cold.

    1. @ Josh: It would be important to know which convention and which Palestinians you were with. I doubt there were any Hamas supporters at a West Bank convention. THerefore you didn’t get a comprehensive view of Palestinian opinion on the issue. But when you think about it, there’s also a great deal of conflict between Israelis and Diaspora Jews. So I would expect the same among Palestinians.

      As for the Palestinian economy, after a peace agreement I expect the economy to expand by leaps and bounds. So the notion that the economy can’t support returning Palestinians is wrong. In the event of a return of Palestinians to Israel itself, I expect the same phenomenon. Returnees to both places will bring assets, funding, business opportunities, innovation, and entrepreneurship which will enrich whatever country they return to.

      1. Even if Palestinians choose to stay where they are, they will still want compensation, maybe even acknowledgement for Nabka,, maybe even citizenship in Palestine and/ or ROR to the new state – I would think. Once there is a resolution I wonder if countries like Lebanon and Jordan will offer citizenship, either or or dual.

        Anyway this sounds like a nothing burger or worse, something to blame on the Palestinians for not accepting a generous offer.

        (BTW who will pay for these amenities? And who is paying for this show?)

        1. But why don’t they offer citizenship right now? Like many other countries do!
          Why after 70 years these refugees are still in the same state as they were?
          The world has settled 10’s of millions of refugees in the past 70 years. All but Palestinians.

          1. @ Josh:

            ut why don’t they offer citizenship right now? Like many other countries do!

            Why doesn’t Israel offer citizenship to Black Hebrews, who’ve lived in Israel for many decades? Why doesn’t Israel offer citizenship readily to non-Jews who wish to attain it? Nor does any Arab country owe you any explanation about their citizenship regulations.

            Why after 70 years these refugees are still in the same state as they were?

            Because you, moron and your own country haven’t cleaned up the mess you created. Stop whining about everyone having to take care of your problems. The world owes you nothing.

            The world has settled 10’s of millions of refugees in the past 70 years.

            That’s little more than a guess and probably incorrect. But no matter how many refugees have been resettled, there are millions more who have not been. And there are millions more being created every day. So no, you get to complain about Palestinian refugees I’m afraid.
