1. Palestinians want something or everything for nothing
Sam ,   Montreal   (11.21.17)
In the long term Palestinians accept only Muslim majority states. In the short term they may accept territory in return for nothing to make it look like they are peace partners. It's not difficult to con the West and liberal Jews.
2. Resounding Israeli victory is the only peace plan that works
Chaim ,   Israel   (11.21.17)
The WW II Allies had a magnificent peace plan that brought permanent peace to almost all of Europe and Asia. It is called resounding victory. Resounding Israeli victory over "Palestinians" is the only peace plan that works. Just let evil fictional "Palestine" fall!
3. Trump’s Mideast peace plan
befare ,   Sweden   (11.21.17)
So, he too has a plan! Let´s see now, how many peace plans have we heard of the last 70 years?
4. ***WE*** DON'T WANT A DEAL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (11.21.17)
5. "Deal"?That he can make peddling some real estate in Bronx!
6. Trump plan doomed because Putin runs the region!
7. Foresight
Howard A Fierstein ,   AZ and Jerusalem   (11.22.17)
When Trump was elected, many friends in Israel and those supportive of Israel in U.S. were excited by the possibilities that Trump offered to Israel, such as moving the embassy to Jerusalem. I, however, "saw the light" in Trump as to future prospects of his promises. He selected members to his cabinet for the Middle East who are unknowledgeable and inexperienced in foreign policy and history. To all my friends and neighbors in Israel, I stated, "Don't hold your breath." I continue to have "seen the light."
8. Trump's Land deal will fail because this isn't New Jersey
real estate ,   "fire sale!"   (11.23.17)

11. Steve Benassi y no comment regarding Deputy FM statements?
Did she kick you in the teeth so good that you are silent on the subject?
12. Another great piece by Yemini, one correction
Shalom ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (11.25.17)
"Seven years later, the Beilin-Abbas draft agreement was finalized, including no right of return to Israel." This was "Beilin-Abbas" only in the sense that Beilin presented it to Abbas, who declined to endorse it. Maybe Yemini is thinking of the "Geneva Initiative," which stated that any "return" would be subject to the agreement of both sides. But since the two sides will never agree on this, the "Geneva Initiative" was also irrelevant.
