In “US peace plan’s economic section to be revealed June 25” (May 20), US Middle East envoy Jarred Kushner declares, “The Palestinian people, along with all people in the Middle East, deserve a future with dignity and the opportunity to better their lives.”
Although the deal that the US government is preparing for the Bahrain conference can benefit the Palestinian business elite, it does not assure dignity or opportunity for the Palestinian Arab people. The Palestinian Authority has a proven 26-year track record of hording assets for its own benefit.
Even more tragic, while “the deal of the century” may facilitate profits for the Palestinian and Israeli business community it does not annul the unprecedented PA ordinance that grants an automatic generous gratuity for anyone who murders a Jew – and for the family of the killer. Nor does it override the law that decrees capital punishment for any Arab who sells land to a Jew. Nor does it cancel the new PA curriculum, which indoctrinates the next generation to strive for the “right of return by force of arms.” (Our agency has examined, translated and brought the new PA curriculum to the highest echelons of the White House.)
Perhaps the special White House envoy assigned to revive the Middle East peace process should first work to annul the PA indoctrination-for-terror-and-war curriculum, funded by Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, Germany, the UK, Sweden and other Western Nations.
The smokescreen of economic progress will not obfuscate a corrupt regime in a full state of war.
