While we’ve been distracted by other things real signifcant news keeps happening
For example my reaction to this is Wow!
Saudi Arabia’s all-powerful crown prince has opened up a new front in his attempts to change the Middle East by intervening in Palestinian politics and demanding backing for President Trump’s vision for peace with Israel.
Now some might say that in a year where we’ve seen the 1st anniversary of Donald Trump election and Italy failed to make the world cup just about anything is possible, but I never in my life thought I’d see a story like that.
Of course it remains to be seen if Abbas would dare to obey the Saudi’s in this, after all the Saudi crown prince has a huge security apparatus to keep him protected from those who would want him dead over peace with Israel while Abbas’ guard and people might be a little less inclined to risk their necks to play along.
After all with yet another generation of palestinians being taught in UN funded schools how wonderful it is to kill yourself to murder jews any suggestion of taking a peace deal might be hazardous to his health, what good is all that money skimmed from aid money if you’re not alive to spend it?
Of course it’s worth noting this point on the whole subject that people are missing: A “deal” is not the same as peace. Until people decide that jews are not fair game for target practice for bombs or knifes or cars a “deal” will mean nothing.
