I think we should take the Palestinians at their word: they are saying “no” to peace and prosperity; we should say “no” to providing them any more help.
Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt should pack up their portfolios, hand-outs, graphs, easels, and charts and come home. The U.S. has spent far too much time trying to assuage a people that hates us, that is corrupt, and that holds the world hostage to their threats of violence and hand-wringing. It’s time for the U.S. to stop beating its head against the proverbial wall and let the Arab countries figure out what to do with the Palestinian people.
I’m serious. How long do we try to maintain the masquerade that there is any chance of bringing peace to the Middle East? The Palestinians refuse to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist. They refuse to negotiate territory. They refuse to be accountable for the billions of dollars they squander away. They continue to pay support for families whose members died as terrorists.
