They were supported by numerous Arab armies during the Israeli-Arab wars of 1948, 1967, 1973, but the Palestinians always miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity. “They flatly dismissed the deal of the century.” This was a decisive factor that manifested the Palestinian intransigence.
The Trump administration, after years of previous administrations trying the same thing over and over again, decided to turn in a different direction. The first step was moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. Yes, the Palestinians screamed at the top of their lungs. However, no one really heard them. This was the first test.
The U.S. team decided to engage other Arab countries in what was to become a new day. The new paradigm has left the Palestinians in the dust, the mirage of peace was never to be. Trump gauged the mindset of the Arab Street correctly; most of the Arab countries, Sunni majority, were sick and tired of backing up the Ramallah regime headed by Abu Mazen, AKA Mahmoud Abbas. It became apparent to them that they were being blackmailed by the Palestinian Authority; unequivocally supporting the pseudo Palestinian had a cost, geopolitically, socially and economically. So, the rift began to take place entering a new paradyne. One Arab country after another has put down the sword against Israel and embraced the dove of peace.
Several years ago Newt Gingrich differed from official US policy that respects the Palestinians as a people deserving of their own state based on negotiations with Israel. “Remember, there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire” until the early 20th century, Gingrich said.
“I think that we’ve had an invented Palestinian people who are in fact Arabs and who were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places, and for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940s, and it’s tragic,” he said.
But Israel can’t rest on its laurels until Trump secures a second term. A Biden win would eviscerate all of the progress made to date. American Jews should recognize the Jew Hate amongst their midst. Democrats are not their friend.
