Excellent points, BUT . . .

Reader comment on item: Reservations about the Trump Peace Plan

Submitted by Peter G. Pollak (United States), Jan 30, 2020 at 08:09

Mr. Pipes makes some excellent points about the proposed Peace Plan, BUT there is one aspect of the situation he doesn't seem to take into account, which is the changed situation in the Middle East which combined with the failure of Fatah and Hamas to achieve their goals has resulted in an untapped undercurrent of opposition among the average Palestinian in both territories. I believe the failure of the leadership of both territories to begin to negotiate the details of this plan will result in an uprising similar to what we are seeing in Iran of young people in particular who want new leadership and who are enticed by a future that includes freedom and prosperity.
