Trump is an amazing deal maker.
“Trump is an amazing deal maker.”
It has been obvious for my entire life that the worst obstacle to peace with Israel was the Palestinian leaders. They had opportunity after opportunity, but they turned them down to maintain a war footing, because, as a leader, you can do things during war that you can’t do during peace. I suspect every Palestinian leader had enriched himself at the expense of Palestinian prosperity. Trump gave them a chance, then cut them out of the process. Now, they have lost the war of their own choosing with none of the gains they expected. However, the big long term winner will be the Palestinian Arabs; the commoners, not the elite.
