Trump cannot fix America! he has accomplished little in 2 years of bragging. so he wants to fix the world, too. fat chance.
you should always look into the mouth of a gift horse and it's rear end, too. sometimes what comes out in the rear end is more important.
Israel cannot afford a deal that will put it in mortal danger. Trump cares more for the deal than its consequences. he won't be in office when disaster happens.
2. It doesn't matter
solomon ,   New York   (02.27.19)
The Arabs will not accept ANY agreement unless they get EXACTLY what they want, culminating in the destruction of Israel.
3. We haven't seen the numbers
this human ,   Notmdwhumanhands   (02.27.19)
If we spend it they will come. Everyman has his price. Since '67 hasn't worked and we know what Mr Einstein said.
4.  Trump's deal of the century
Shabak ,   Jonesborough   (02.27.19)
Actually, Trump has accomplished a lot. The American economy is stronger than ever, unemployment is at the lowest, at least was sitting down and talkin to the North Korean dictator. You can't blame Trump when's the House of Representatives which is now controlled by libertards take you to court at every turn. The problem with Israel is you had prime ministers who believed the schwaerze in the White House Obama, Bush etc who said they would protect Israel. Israeli Prime Ministers also failed to act early on when Weaponry was transported into Lebanon from Syria. Israel has no one to blame but themselves.
5. Pals demand 2 state solution, reject Jewish majority state
Sam ,   Montreal   (02.27.19)
So, what's the point of looking for a 2 state solution? The Arabs and Europe are too stupid to figure out the contradiction. So Trump's team offers an economic peace with no 2 state solution and it's immediately rejected The reality is that the Arabs are waiting for Israel to commit suicide, be defeated by war or boycott They offer a fraudulent peace initiative because it makes better public relations than saying no to everything. In time there will be another war and Israel will smash them again. The IDF pussycat generals won't have a choice. That's the only way to get them to move.
7. Seems everybody but me knows already all the details?!
8. No Deal of the Century
dorian s fund ,   tel aviv   (02.27.19)
Kushner and Greenblatt and associates have worked very hard on Donalds Deal of the Century. The problems is the participants do not really want peace.

It doesn't matter what they propose it will reach deaf ear. There are so many parties involved that it is just impossible to reach a deal.

Emotions and generations of hatred and distrust will not allow a long term deal to ever take happen.

There are so many groups, factions, and individuals in Palestine and territories that would become unimportant if peace is achieved that they will not allow this to happen.

But it is not just the Palestinians it is the Israelis. Peace would shake up the established government that there is no way to really reach an agreement.

It will come back to religion, and 1000's of years of history.

But the deep rooted hatred and mistrust among the parties makes it impossible to find an accord.

9. Creativity not need to deal with "Palestinians". Just guts
Chaim ,   Israel   (02.27.19)
Once again, Plocker writes garbage. Creativity is required for art, music, novels etc. It is not required to deal with "Palestinians". All that is needed is the guts to treat "Palestinians" as the mortal foes they are. Churchill didn't use creativity to defeat the Nazis. He used guts and determination. That is EXACTLY what Israel needs to defeat "Palestinians" and send them packing.
Respect 'em but suspect 'em .
11. PEACE?
He can't even build a wall !
12. Apparently 'just guts' are needed, not creativity
Bertram ,   London, UK.   (03.01.19)
I would have thought the last thing needed is someone spilling their guts all over the place. As for Churchill, a very creative man and whom I am usually loathe to cite, he stated that "jaw-jaw is better than war-war" and that "war is usually a catalogue of blunders".
