Brilliant reactions from brilliant leaders

Reader comment on item: Reservations about the Trump Peace Plan

We didn't have to wait long for the reaction this time. President Dr. Abbas quickly gave us his thoughts:
"We say a thousand times, no, no, no," he said. "We rejected this deal from the start and our stance was correct."

At least he spared us the protracted negotiations before finally rejecting everything out of hand. A nice departure from his predecessor. Maybe it was the part about Palestinians working at a million new jobs instead of living off a worldwide welfare system that enriches him that caused Dr. Abbas' lightening fast rejection.

Hamas chimed in with a commonsense approach, saying the deal was aiming "to liquidate the Palestinian national project." So pushing the Jews into the sea is now a "national project." Nice. And "liquidate" is such an eloquent way to put it.

Ilhan Omar appeared to agree with Hamas: "This is not a peace plan. It is theft. It is erasure" (almost back to that word liquidate again). Liz Warren called it a sham and unilateral annexation.

Amidst all the comments and opinions, Dr. Pipes succinctly brings us back to the one constant and tragically simple reality: "Their century-long rejection of Jews, Judaism, Zionism, and Israel is the one and only problem preventing a solution; it must end, immediately, completely."

Until it does end, every peace plan other than a Jewish genocide will also receive a thousand no's.
