Trump’s Bogus Middle East Peace Plan

What US President Donald Trump's administration has put forward is not a courageous plan for permanent peace between Israelis and Palestinians, but a shameless ploy to violate international law, Palestinian human rights, and basic principles of fairness. Palestinians will never accept it.
