Remember Donald Trump? The President of the United States? Well he met today with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel and they discussed many security issues amongst other things.
Oh, and they discussed peace with the Palestinians. “I’m looking at two-state and one-state” formulations, Mr. Trump said. Does that sound like peace is in the imminent future of the Palestinians? Trump followed that up by saying “I like the one that both parties like. I’m very happy with the one that both parties like. I can live with either one.” That sounds a lot like indifference.
It seems like The United States is going to let Israel do as they please and will not get in the way at all. This is freaking out Palestinian advocates — who believe it could be the death blow to the idea of an independent Palestinian state.
This was all fine and dandy until Trump seemed to be less indifferent later in the briefing when he stated that Israel would need to make compromises and that they would need to slow down on those settlements. So what is it? Which Trump do we believe?
Palestine and it’s people are being teetered back and forth here and for that reason they’re feeling a bit uneasy tonight. Do they have an ally in peace or will the United States turn a blind eye to them? They must feel like a contestant on the bachelor that never gets invited on the one to one dates.
And this is why Palestine is The Unbalanced Being of the Day.
