UK's Independent Newspaper Frets About the Embassy Move & "Israel Victory"

Reader comment on item: Enjoy the Jerusalem Embassy – But Don't Get Giddy

Submitted by Camelinspace (Israel), May 16, 2018 at 04:07

"The best that can be said for Mr Trump's Jerusalem policy is that it somehow shocks the Palestinians towards a lasting settlement, and with that might come a wider lowering of regional tension. The idea is that it is such an act of naked partisanship towards Israel that the Palestinians become so dispirited that they beg the Americans and Israelis to offer them any kind of "peace" deal – an "unequal treaty" under duress. This – the logic runs – they will then accept as gracefully as they can for fear of worse to come – yet more humiliations and cruelties being heaped upon them, until they have no rights, territory or independence left – and they capitulate."
