The USA Belongs to Trump, and Israel is the 51st State - Now Let's Make a Deal

Reader comment on item: Hints of Trump's Forthcoming Palestinian-Israeli Plan

Submitted by Robert (United States), Oct 13, 2018 at 09:45

Dear Daniel Pipes,

My Title above is designed to illuminate Trump's psychological profile as a Real Estate Tycoon. On the rather humorous side of life, I recommend that you watch (again?) the the Mel Brooks Film (now a Video on YouTube), "LIFE STINKS."

But if you want a more literal title, I would write, "DIVIDE AND CONQUER." Here below is a pair of articles showing that the 'State of Palestine" is Morphing into two (2) irreconcilable "ENTITIES" (read it as in Iran's "the Israeli Entity") of Gaza and the West Bank, and that this is all encouraged by the Trump Administration as well as by Egypt, Saudi Arabia, UAE, and Qatar (among lesser others). Ironically, it's the Hamas-Abbas drifting apart which is turning the "Palestinian State" into an impossible fantasy:
