Slumlord Jared Kushner as a diplomat? WTF is he doing playing a representative of the United States? He sure as hell doesn’t represent any sane citizen here, any more than does his criminally sociopathic father-in-law!


“You don’t stick a knife in a mans back 9 inches, then pull it out 6 inches and say you’re making progress” - Malcolm X

The same goes when a supremely powerful military and racist occupier “negotiates” with an, oppressed, civilian, mostly unarmed, and powerless people!
The zionist occupier planned to “put facts on the ground that will be hard to change” as said repeatedly by Israeli leaders, as well as either actually or effectively annexing most of The Occupied Territories and Jerusalem - the people being forced to “negotiate”.are in an untenable position, especially under the zionist/Israeli stooge, the trump regime!

Hanan Ashrawi is absolutely right: "First lift the siege of Gaza, stop the Israeli theft of our land, resources and funds, "First lift the siege of Gaza, stop the Israeli theft of our land (and water), resources and funds, give us our freedom of movement (tear-down the illegal "apartheid wall) and control over our borders, airspace, territorial waters etc.“Then watch us build a vibrant prosperous economy as a free and sovereign people.”

Israel has never entered into good faith negotiations since 1948 - it’s not in their nature or supremacist mindset…


Most people are not generally as biltheringly ignorant as Trump voters so, yea, Kushner plan DOA is rational


Sounds like an attempt to open up the Palestinian territories to multi national corporations using the Palestinians as slave labor. Yay capitalism.


The Flaming Orange Satan’s supporters are just as stupid as he is.


A diplomat is supposed to be the face of a nation.
He is an utterly corrupt and fatally ignorant sociopath who is loyal to Israel above all, and he owes everything he has to inheritance and family connections.
Can’t think of a more perfect representation of America’s current leadership to be honest.


Walmartization of Palestine, exchange the cheap Chinese laborer with the occupied oppressed slave Palestinian laborers. Brilliant plan to cheat a 3rd grader out of his lunch but Palestinians have been through American and Israeli fleece cheat and steal process many times before since 1948.


Trump is a genius compared to most of his deplorables. They are mostly clueless. And most of that is the result of right-wing propaganda, lies, and distortions, Fox etc. imo

“[R]epackaging of recycled and hollow slogans that fail to address the root problem: Israeli occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid.”–exactly what US Americans must come to realize about their own nation as the longest running settler-colonialism on indigenous land. Realizing this above all and making the necessary and courageous atonement will start the US on a new course that should give the rest of our globe the breathing space it needs to quickly start addressing the existential threats that face us all.


President Abbas is smart! He sees right through the tRump cabal! This is just another “Disaster Capitalism” scheme.

Perhaps this is all just Business As Usual, but now, with Trump and his family in office, the clarity of the corruption makes this Business stink to high heaven: the “Middle East Peace Plan” is just a ploy to line the Trump entourage’s greedy pockets. How the US government, or ANY other government, can get behind this obscenity is beyond disgusting.

Kushner: what a putz.

Exactly. The govt of Israel doesn’t want nor has it ever wanted peace with Palestine. Their brutal takeover of the land is proof number one. Proof number two is their continued assault on the Palestinian people both militarily and economically. By our govt’s assent, and our silence, we are complicit.


My thought exactly.
