Any 2-state peace plan rewards Palestinian Arab terror

Trump's plan or any other plan must not reward those who pay terrorists in proportion to how many they kill.

AIPAC's CEO has come out for the two-state solution, but more important, there are rumblings that the Trump Administration is close to unveiling its own Peace Plan.  From the snippets one hears in the media, chances are it will resemble the 1967 Allon Plan which incorporated the Jordan Valley into Israel and ceded Western Samaria, and Western Judea to some sort of Palestinian Arab State along with an extra-territorial corridor to the Gaza Strip.  

While the Trump Administration has been the greatest American administration ever, such a plan is not only in the worst interests of Israel, it is first and foremost in the worst interests of the United States because Islamic terrorists will see any reward of the Palestinian Arab Terror Authority as an American sanction and legitimization of violent terror as a successful and legal tool.

For example, despite President Trump himself stating that the Palestinian Authority must stop paying terrorists and/or their terror families money for committing heinous violent terror acts, the Palestinians and Abbas himself have rejected such requests out of hand.  On May 23, 2017, President Trump said, “Peace can never take root in an environment where violence is tolerated, funded and even rewarded. We must be resolute in condemning such acts in a single unified voice.” Well, what has happened since?  The Palestinian Terror Authority has blithely continued terror payments for genocidal Palestinian murderers.  

To add an exclamation point to the issue of terror payments, on August 23, 2017, it was reported that the chairman of the Palestinian Arab Terror Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, at a meeting with Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, rejected American demands that he stop using foreign financial aid to pay stipends and salaries to the families of jailed Palestinian terrorists. In fact, the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Quds reported that Abbas' response was to "inform Kushner that he would never stop paying these salaries until his dying day, even if this cost him the presidency."  

Now, the perverse genocidal reality of Palestinian Arab politics is that as long as Abbas continues the terror payments to his coterie of genocidal murderers, his leadership position is relatively safe.  The second Abbas even hints he will stop the terror payments, he might not live out the day, let alone continue as the Palestinian Arab leader.  By the Palestinian Arabs’ constant self-teaching of Israeli-Jew hatred, they have turned themselves into bastions of hate who live to murder Israelis.  Take for example the two female Israeli soldiers that took a wrong turn into a Palestinian Authority city and were almost lynched by the locals.  

Or how about the Palestinian Arabs who voted more for Hamas than Fatah in the parliamentary elections? The Palestinian Arabs know both Hamas and Fatah want Israel’s annihilation and the genocide of the 6 million Jews of Israel.  The only difference is Hamas is explicitly for the Israeli genocide, while Fatah is tacitly for an Israeli genocide.  Nevertheless, the Palestinian Arab majority voted for Hamas’ explicit call for Israeli genocide.

This brings us back to the simple American demand that the Palestinian Arab Terror Authority stop making its terror payments since the American taxpayer is substantially footing the bill for those payments. It was reported by Haaretz on June 13, 2017 that US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson testified in the Senate “that the Palestinian Authority has changed its policy of paying families of convicted terrorists, and intends to stop supporting them as a result of pressure from the Trump administration.” It was further reported that, “in reply to a question from Senator Jim Risch (R-ID) on these payments, Tillerson said that the issue "was discussed directly with [Palestinian] President Abbas when he made his visit to Washington."

Abbas was in the White House in early May, and according to Tillerson, President Trump talked to him about the controversial payments. "The president raised it, and I had a bilateral meeting with [Abbas] later and I told him - you absolutely have to stop this," Tillerson said.  He [Tillerson] then went on to say that the Palestinians have in fact changed their policy: "They have changed that policy and their intent is to cease the payments to the families of those who have committed murder or violence against others. We have been very clear with them that this is simply not acceptable to us."

But, we already know, Abbas on August 23, 2017 two months after Tillerson testified that the Palestinian Terror Authority had “changed their policy” stated that the terror payment policy will never change.

As long as the Palestinian Arabs are brainwashing and paying their citizens to murder Israelis, how is the United States coming up with a “Peace Plan” to give the Palestinian Terror Authority anything?  How is the Palestinian Authority any different than ISIS?  Would President Trump give ISIS land in a “Peace Deal” while they are slitting peoples’ throats and paying the murderers?  

In fact, any floating of a Trump “Peace Deal” giving anything to the Palestinian Arabs will appear to ISIS and Islamist crazies world over as a Trump sanction and reward for Palestinian genocidal terrorism.  

Such an American sanction and reward for Islamic terrorism will only incentivize other Islamic terrorists to murder American citizens all over the world.

Hence, instead of the Trump Administration rewarding the Palestinian Arabs for their institutionalized terror spree, there should be a complete cut-off of every penny America sends to the bloodthirsty Palestinian Arab Terror Authority.  

For every penny America gives the Palestinian Authority is a sanction to Islamic terrorists all over the world that America sanctions and rewards Islamic terror murder.  Therefore, any Trump “Peace Plan” that gives anything to the Palestinian Authority is in the worst national interests of the United States.
