It looks like Donald Trump has begun playing the same game as all Presidents of the United States before him, since the establishment of Israel.
Apparently, regardless of what he said publicly, he ignores those around him who tried to explain him that a two-state concept is not viable. He is talking now about making a deal, as a way of reviving the two-state solution from death. By doing so, he is setting himself for a failure, as most of the previous ‘ambitious’ occupiers of the White house.
He fails to understand, or pretends to, that the fake Palestinians and their leadership in particular have no intention to have peace with Israel or plans for creation their own state. Because the destruction of Israel is the agenda of the enemies of the Jews and they used the artificially created fake people as a tool to achieve it!
Quite soon, President Trump will learn that the so-called Palestinians will not become rational. They are not going to give up their dream of destroying Israel. Creating a new Arab Muslim state may not even be their intention. They will not submit to his powers of persuasion or will agree with Jared Kushner that Jews have a history and affiliation with the land. They do not care about the concept of sharing the land, and living side by side in peace with anyone. It is not in their blood - Muslims are not even able to do it among themselves, forget about Jews!
Abbas will tell Trump that he wants to live in peace with Israel on the 1967 lines with Jerusalem as the capital of a new Muslim state, where Jews will not be allowed to live. He will tell that if Israel agrees to that and to the right of return of millions of fake refugees to Haifa, Jaffa, Safed... there will be peace.
All parties know that this is lie, and completely unreasonable and unacceptable demands. This would be suicidal for Israel to accept these conditions. But they still play the two-state stupidity game and Israel has continuously been humiliated in the process!
As the first step to self-destruction, Israel has to move over 400,000 Jews out of Judea and Samaria! It has been done before – Jews were removed from Trans-Jordan, to facilitate peace with Arabs in 1922; 8,500 Jews were forcefully removed from Gaza, in the name of peace, in 2005. As a result, there were more assaults from Arab/Muslim states, more wars and thousands of rockets were fired from Hamas controlled Gaza!
The PA is not going to take 300,000 ‘Palestinians’ living beyond the Green Line in Greater Jerusalem of course or 2,5 million Arabs residents of Israel. Why is it out of the question?
At first they have been playing a victim game, after that a foot-hold is obtained over land which is not under Israel’s control, Gaza. Next step is to make more demands and unleash more terror. If Israel agrees to the PA demands, the Arab population will be eventually used to advance the agenda of Israel destruction through terror and intimidation.
Nobody cares that Abbas does not control Hamas and many other Palestinian terror groups, and that ISIS is moving in. The only thing that restrains them from killing each other is the common hate toward Israel and Jews!
So far, most presidents have tried to make history, at the expense of the Jewish state, by attempting to create a Palestinian state on Jewish land! This has never worked! It has only created opportunities for a new escalation of violence or war.
Unfortunately, the government of Israel is weak. Netanyahu should unequivocally explain to President Trump that a two state solution is dead end, and is a curtain path to war and not peace.
Ceding more of Jewish land to enemies is not an option. Israeli must exercise sovereignty over all our land! There are many peace options that can accommodate Palestinian independence ambition, if they have one. But they have not been seriously considered or even acknowledged. We can endlessly talk about them, but the main prerequisite to all of them to work is in the answer to a simple question – Do Palestinians want peace with Israel? At the moment, we can only say “Let wait and see” if he really has intention to “Drain the Swamp”! His first test will be on 2nd of June.

Before and after Israel removed Jewish families, using force, from Gaza there were no international objections and condemnations, although Israel was violating the Fourth Geneva convention which forbids “population transfer” under any circumstances! Since then terror attacks from Gaza escalated. Let be honest about the situation, so-called Palestinians are not victims - they are perpetrators of terror against the Jewish state. They are occupiers of Jewish land - it is time to end this travesty!
Israeli warplanes struck several targets in Syria . Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the strikes targeted weapons bound for Lebanon's Hezbollah, and that the Jewish State would do the same again if necessary. "When we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah and we have intelligence and it is operationally feasible, we act to prevent it. That's how it was yesterday and that's how we shall continue to act," he added.
The head of the United Nation’s West Asia commission, which comprises 18 Arab states, resigned, after what she described as pressure from the secretary general to withdraw a report accusing Israel of imposing an “apartheid regime” on Palestinians. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres insisted on the withdrawal of the report, UN Under-Secretary General and ESCWA Executive Secretary Rima Khalaf said. “Based on that, I submitted to him my resignation from the United Nations,” Khalaf told a news conference in Beirut.
Israeli police shut down an office in East Jerusalem allegedly used by the PA to monitor land sales to Jews by Arabs. The office operated on behalf of the Palestinian security services in Ramallah, compiling the names of East Jerusalem residents suspected of selling their properties to Jews.
Education Minister and Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett consented to a request from Coalition Chairman MK David Bitan (Likud) to postpone a vote in the Ministerial Legislative Committee on imposing Israeli law on the city of Ma’ale Adumim, some 4 miles east of Jerusalem in Judea and Samaria. Bennett made clear that the postponement is only for one week, and not, as Bitan originally requested, three months.
A survey shows that one third of Palestinians believe that the occupation will continue for at least another 50 years, 64% believe that Mahmoud Abbas should resign and 51% oppose the two-state solution, but despite the pessimism, the majority believe that God is standing with them. 37% believe that armed resistance is most effective means of achieving an independent state. (Israel must end occupation of Jewish land - only by removing enemy population from Jewish land will Israel be able to end the terror and prosper!)
The world’s largest and highest valued semiconductor chip maker Intel Corporation is purchasing Mobileye, an Israeli technology company that develops vision-based advanced driver assistance systems providing warnings for collision prevention and mitigation, for an estimated $15 billion.
The Egyptian army has destroyed six underground tunnels connecting the Sinai to the Gaza Strip, from Feb. 21 to March 13. In 2014, Egypt established a buffer zone along its border with the Hamas-governed Gaza Strip, to prevent it from collaborating with ISIS-affiliated Islamist gangs which have been attacking Egyptian army and police in the Sinai. (It is not just Israel having problems with ‘Palestinians’ - Nobody cares if Muslims kill other Muslims!)
A UN agency report published (It is ridiculous that an UN agency which has Syria and Sudan as members preaches morality to the State of Israel - the only democracy in the Middle East!) accused Israel of establishing an "apartheid regime" targeting Palestinians, prompting outrage from Washington. Israeli officials swiftly decried the report "The attempt to smear and falsely label the only true democracy in the Middle East by creating a false analogy is despicable and constitutes a blatant lie," said Israel's UN Ambassador Danny Danon.
Terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, notorious for leading the brutal massacre of 37 Israelis in 1978 is lauded by PA leaders as a role model, on the March 11 anniversary of the most lethal attack in Israel's history. Fatah Central Committee Secretary Jibril Rajoub presents honorary plaques and praised terrorist Mughrabi as "prime among" female "Martyrs," and suggested that Palestinian Arab women of today let themselves be inspired by Mughrabi and the female plane hijacker Laila Khaled. (Israel must stop negotiating with terrorists - most self-respecting nations don’t!)
Quote of the Week:
“If the world isn’t furious at Israel, Israel is failing to protect itself. The world bitching about the rotten Israelis is a good thing. Being unpopular is a pretty small price to pay for staying alive, especially when you’d be unpopular anyway. I hope Bibi and the rest learn from this. Strength is the only thing the world respects, or fears!” – a FaceBook comment.

(So far, Israel has been used as a ‘ball’ in the global international anti-Semitic game. Let wait and see if Trump is different! The test will be on 2nd of June – will he sign another six months extension, as all his predecessors since 1995 or let the US law prevail and move the embassy to Jerusalem?)
In his belated first phone call with the Palestinian leader, the new US president sent out a clear message: If you really are committed to peace, stop running around international institutions, do your part and I'll handle Netanyahu.
The first conclusion: The new US administration managed to exasperate Abbas. The Palestinian Authority insisted on keeping score: 49 days since entering the White House, Trump has called Netanyahu twice and warmly welcomed him to Washington, with the two of them looking like a couple of lovebirds. Trump has also called all of the other players in the region, who are keeping the Israeli-Palestinian conflict at arm's length: Jordan's King Abdullah II, with whom the American president also met, Egypt's President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, Saudi King Salman and the three rulers of the Persian Gulf kingdoms. Abbas found himself last on the list...
The second conclusion: Until further notice, we can expect only meaningless platitudes. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer confirmed reports that Trump invited Abbas to Washington very soon. Meanwhile Palestinian officials described the phone call as "excellent" and "serious and pleasant," while the Palestinian leader said he was looking forward to work with the new president.
This was only a short phone call, with both sides saying only what is expected of them: Trump claims he made a decision to restart the talks without trying to impose solutions, while Abbas stressed he would be committed to any effort that would lead to the establishment of a Palestinian state alongside the State of Israel.
In other words: Trump kicked the ball to Ramallah's court. Abbas wants a Palestinian state? Ahlan Wasahlan, no problem. Come to Washington, you'll be welcomed with a red carpet, and we'll think together how to restart the process. This, on the condition you realize in advance that not all of your demands will be met. Just don't try to sell me tales about the Palestinian public opinion...
