The situation in the middle east with the “Trump peace plan” is more complex and nuanced than Ramirez or the commentators seem to understand. To understand that you need to read the Wikipedia articles “The two state solution” and “the Trump peace plan”. The Palestinians got the short end of the stick when Great Britain created a “two state solution” for Palestine and Israel. The Palestinians are competing with the Uighurs for which area is the largest open air prison on the earth.
My Judeo-Christian upbringing causes me to favor Israel and I am repulsed by the acts of terror against the Jewish people, but I also understand the hatred of the Palestinians against the Jews and would not care to condone the genocide of any people of whatever religion.
I remember the hoopla associated with the Camp David Accords when Jimmy Carter was president. Despite the favorable publicity about a framework for peace they fell apart. I think that since the Palestinians were not invited to the discussions for “Trump’s Peace Plan” that they will eventual unravel as well.
