Under New Deal, Palestinians to Be Offered Less Than Half of West Bank

  • Under New Deal, Palestinians to Be Offered Less Than Half of West Bank
    by Ben Jamal,
    This deal is, it appears, being cooked up with the co-operation of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and the Gulf States. It will be presented to Palestinians on a take-it-or-leave-it basis.

    Having announced his intention to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem in December of last year, reversing years of U.S. policy and violating international law, President Donald Trump seems determined to further rub salt in the wound.

    He announced weeks ago that the new embassy would open on May 15. No more provocative a date could have been chosen. May 15 marks 70 years since the state of Israel was established in a process that saw 750,000 Palestinians expelled from their homes and over 450 towns and villages destroyed.

    Last week, sitting beside the beaming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the White House, Trump said that he would probably attend the opening in person.

    When the Palestinian Authority (PA) responded to his December announcement by indicating that it would not participate in future peace talks brokered by the U.S., Trump proceeded to threaten United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) with a 50 percent funding cut as a crude and inhumane punishment for the refusal of the PA to sit at the table.

    This cut is further justified as part of a process of redefining who counts as a refugee and who doesn’t, which is a specific aim to deny refugee status to the descendants of those expelled in 1948.

    Trump’s posturing is, in part, an attempt to play to his domestic base of support, but beyond that his actions need to be understood within the context of the wider “peace deal” that he has rather ostentatiously framed as the deal of the century.

    The basic shape of this deal has been leaked. Palestinians, it seems, are to be offered 40 percent of the occupied West Bank (Areas A and B under the Oslo Accords). The 60 percent that comprises Area C, where the Israeli state has unlawfully built homes for 350,000 Jewish settlers, will become part of the state of Israel.
