Deal of the century in bullet points

Jan 29,2020

The deal stipulates that the Palestinian Authority work as hard as possible to protect Israel’s security and continues its brutal crackdown on Palestinians who reject the Israeli occupation.

US President Donald Trump announced the terms of his long-awaited deal of the century, which, he claims, it would put an end to the Israeli aggression on the Palestinian rights.

Trump’s deal is considered a gift to the Israeli occupation as it stipulates that:

  • occupied Jerusalem is the “undivided” capital of Israel with a potential capital of the prospective Palestinian state in a small neighbourhood in east Jerusalem,
  • Israel annex Jewish settlements and outposts in occupied West Bank and Jerusalem,
  • Palestinians might have a state without specifying its place, but a map posted on Trump’s twitter, shows that this state could be in separated parts of the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip and these parts would be connected to each other via bridges or tunnels,
  • the possible Palestinian state would not have army, would not control its border crossings, would not have seaports, would not have sovereignty over its ground, sea or airspace,
  • Palestinian resistance of the brutal Israeli occupation is a form of “malign terror” and the Palestinian resistance groups must lay down their weapons,
  • the Palestinian Authority work as hard as possible to protect Israel’s security and continues its brutal crackdown on Palestinians who reject the Israeli occupation,
  • a symbolic number of Palestine refugees to be allowed to return, not to their homes, but any of the islands given for the potential Palestinian state,
  • a symbolic number of Muslims, who are being approved peaceful by Israel, could visit Al Aqsa Mosque and perform prayers and they would remain there for a limited time,
  • the potential Palestinian state will not be allowed to forge agreements or alliances with any foreign country, even its neighbours; and,
  • $50bn to be paid by the Gulf States, mainly Saudi Arabia and the UAE as a bribe to push the Palestinians to accept the deal and as a reward for the neighbour Arab states over their support for the deal.

The two heads of the Israeli politics; head of the right wing bloc, Benjamin Netanyahu, and head of the left wing bloc, Benny Gantz, endorsed the deal.

All of the Palestinians rejected the plan and pledged to continue using all legitimate forms of resistance to regain their rights.

Hundreds of analysts and officials around the world, including those at the UN, EU and even Israel rejected the plan.
