Obstacles to the U.S. Peace Plan

(Gatestone Institute) Bassam Tawil - The Palestinians have categorically rejected the yet-to-be-announced U.S. peace plan. They know it will never satisfy their demands. The Palestinians are opposed to the peace plan because they have something else in mind. The Palestinians want a peace without, not with, Israel. The reason the Palestinians have a problem with the U.S. plan is that they see any peace plan as an obstacle to their plan to eliminate Israel. The Palestinians have a problem with Israel's presence in the Middle East: most of them have still not come to terms with the Jews' right to live in a secure and sovereign state of their own anywhere in the Middle East. The Palestinian Authority and Hamas disagree on everything - except the elimination of Israel. If U.S. presidential aides Kushner and Greenblatt wish to learn more about the true ambitions of the Palestinians, they would do well to take in a sermon at a mosque on some Friday or stop into a school in the West Bank and Gaza. Then they would see for themselves that no peace plan can, at the moment, counter the poison that is injected daily into the hearts and minds of the Palestinians and their children.
