I was going to write about something else today, but I just couldn’t do it. Ever since I learned the details of President Trump’s “peace plan”, I haven’t been able to focus on anything else for very long. Under Trump’s plan, the U.S. would formally recognize a Palestinian state, the Palestinians would be allowed to set up a capital in East Jerusalem, and the amount of territory under Palestinian control would double. Yes, you read that correctly. Needless to say, I am very deeply upset right now and anyone that loves Israel should also be very deeply upset. The good news is that the Palestinians hate Trump’s plan so much that it has absolutely no chance of being implemented any time soon. But the fact that the Palestinians have already rejected this deal does nothing to diminish the fact that this is the biggest mistake that Trump has made in his entire presidency.
