Update: Israel needs another fake deal like it needs, say, another nuclear Ayatollah.
Re the fake deal phenomenon, Ran Baratz warns,
Peace between Israel and the Palestinians always seems “so close” – but remains elusive. And similar to [Robert] McNamara, the fault is not with the other side; instead it is the Left’s mistaken understanding of the Palestinians.Anyone think for even a nanosecond that Trump's understanding is any better?
Update: Something that Marwan Barghouthi ("the Palestinian Nelson Mandela," so-called) gets right--he says "the last day of the occupation will be the first day of peace."
To translate from the Islamist: the last day of the occupation (of Israel, all of it, by the Jews) will be the first day of peace (in the Islamist sense of the word, i.e. the "peace" that will be in effect once Islam takes over permanently).
Update: Abbas's children will ensure that any "peace" deal will not benefit the Jews.
