This so-called Deal of the Century can be thrown in the dust bin right away. It was hammered out by American right-wing Zionists under the auspices of Netanyahu. There will be no Palestinian to sign this document of total surrender. Even the so-called Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas who signed the infamous Oslo Accords can’t afford to sign such a document. Perhaps there is another quisling around who is willing to play Israel’s and the US‘ stooge.
How can a so-called honest broker present such a one-sided plan, which gives Israel everything and blackmails the oppressed Palestinian people with the indigestible leftovers? This deal is not only a cynical one, but it demonstrates to the world that these regimes despise not only international law but the rule of law in general.
Having followed the Middle Eastern conflict (http://www.watzal.com/f_pe.html) from the start of the trespassing of the Zionists until now, neither the tactics of the Zionists/Israelis nor the support of the US for this unjust endeavor has changed. Without the help and the enormous financial support of the different US administrations, especially after the June war of 1967, the silent colonization of Palestine could not have happened. The various US governments differenced only in their rhetorical degree in their unwavering support for Israel. But the Trump administration lost all inhibitions and backed the racist and Apartheid Israeli regime fully. The word of the current US government is not worth a cent.
This so-called Deal of the Century is as dubious as the negotiations‘ between Ehud Barak, Yasser Arafat and Bill Clinton were at Camp David on July 5, 2000. I published a resume of these shameful negotiations in the Neue Zurcher Zeitung (http://www.watzal.com/The_Myth_of_Camp_David.pdf), which showed how dishonest and one-sided Bill Clinton and Ehud Barak behaved. Arafat refused to sign this document of surrender saying that he had to kill himself if he would sign it.
One should nothing expect from this bodged deal. It’s a hopeless endeavor to bring peace to the Middle East; instead, it bears the seeds of a more massive conflict in the region. The coming showdown with Iran plays into this equation. After the US has destroyed Iran for the sake of Israel, the Abbas regime has to bite the bullet.
