Reader comment on item: Anticipating Trump's "Deal of the Century"

The Arab states recognize Israel: that became a critical issue, the immature way the Gulf countries show their warm sentiments towards Israel divided the Arabs, it seems the opposition against the leader Saudi Arabia has louder voice, for the first time... I recommend Saudis go slower and low profile...

Mahmoud Abbas: he has no other choice, he already had low support among Palestinians, it seems he internally benefited from his rejection... who is the alternative???

90% of West Bank: actually Palestinians focus on East Jerusalem more than this 90%...

Control of PA-Jordan on Islamic sanctuaries: this control should be left to Hashemites..

More rights to Palestinian residents: I guess no big issue for Egypt as their number is tiny there... Jordan needs financial support to allow them to have more freedom in the country, like: work, education, travel, own houses etc... Lebanon is the pain: most of them are Sunnis, as most of Palestinian Christians gained Lebanese nationality... Lebanese can give them the previous status as was in Syria... many rights except voting and army service...

Land passage: actually there is a model for such one, I guess it works well, some Gaza residents apply to cross to Jordan as Egypt closes borders, they give them certain date and transfer them by Israeli bus with security accompanied from cross point with Gaza to Allenby Bridge... there could be a highway with high tech security..
