Palestine: Legally Overriding a UN Security Council Veto. In Response to Trump’s Annexation Scheme

A Plan for Peace or a Recipe for War? Trump Unveils his Israel-Palestine Peace Plan

By Janet Phelan Trump has unveiled his “Deal of the Century,” a “peace plan” for Israel and Palestine which some commentators are calling “a recipe for war.” The plan gives lip service to a separate Palestinian state, while giving Israel the mandate for security of Palestine.

Trump’s ‘win-win’ deal for Israel-Palestine is a bit like his ‘100 percent’ defeat of ISIS, not backed by reality

The irony is not lost that Trump made the comment while announcing details of what appears to be a dead-on-arrival […]

Trump Regime’s Criminal “Deal of the Century”: Breaking Palestine, Endorsing “Greater Israel”?

US/Israeli policy is hardwired against regional peace and stability.
