Trump is putting the onus of ‘peace’ on the Israelis, saying if they aren’t willing to sacrifice certain things, then there won’t be any peace between Israel and the Palestinians:
ASSOCIATED PRESS – Donald Trump says that if he’s elected president, he’ll know within six months whether he can achieve an elusive peace accord between Israelis and Palestinians, one of the world’s most vexing challenges. But the Republican presidential candidate says he has doubts about each side’s commitment to the peace process.
“I have a real question as to whether or not both sides want to make it,” Trump said in an interview with The Associated Press.
The Republican presidential front-runner said his concerns are greater regarding “one side in particular.” While Trump wouldn’t say whether he was referring to the Israelis or the Palestinians, he said the chances for a lasting peace rest with Israel.
“A lot will have to do with Israel and whether or not Israel wants to make the deal – whether or not Israel’s willing to sacrifice certain things,” Trump said. “They may not be, and I understand that, and I’m OK with that. But then you’re just not going to have a deal.”
“If I win, I’ll let you know six months from the time I take office,” he added.
How absurd. Israel has always been willing to sacrifice land for peace. This is why they are now under constant threat of terrorism from Gaza and the West Bank. Israel has time and time again given land to the Palestinians and in return it has only led to more deaths of Israelis because the Palestinians don’t want peace, they want Jewish annihilation.
Trump needs to sit down for 6 minutes and watch the video below from Danny Avalon. It explains the failed peace process in terms that even he should be able to understand:
And while he’s at it, he should watch this one too on the history of what many now call the ‘West Bank’:
