Five nuggets mined from @POTUS #Israel-#Palestine peace plan that commentators may have missed on a quick reading: 1/6
1) Plan cites 1949 Armistice negotiations as a rationale for Triangle proposal, an #AvigdorLieberman favorite, to transfer 10 #Arab towns/villages from #Israel to #Palestine. Imagine if Palestinian negotiators cited '49 precedent to claim land currently inside #Israel? p. 13 2/6
2) Despite affirmation of the "same governance regime that exists today" for #Jerusalem holy sites -- and despite #Trump's appeal to #Jordan's king yesterday -- plan does not specifically endorse special #Hashemite role in preserving holy sites. p. 16 3/6

#1: This isn't an #Israeli-#Palestinian #peace plan, it's a U.S.-Israel conflict management/unilateral annexation plan. At moment, there is ZERO buy-in from Palestinians (who are unifying around the anti-plan pole) or regional partners (apart from an Egyptian "read carefully")
#2:Settlements - Actually this is Oslo+++. 97% of settlers in 4 blocs absorbed with some ambiguous by-pass road. 3% of settlers (including some of most radical 15 settlements) surrounded by Palestinian enclaves. Settler movement won't allow. How much Area C leftover, no idea.
#3:There is no united Jerusalem, this is convenient code-switching to call East Jerusalem Palestinian capitol "Al Quds" but this is basically same as Oslo, except Abu Dis etc is now behind the separation barrier and ringed in by Jerusalem settlements that didn't exist in 1990s

I have read the entire #Israel-#Palestinian peace plan and my advice to revelers is not to pop the champagne anytime soon -- "peace" is not around the corner. Here's a quick assessment. 1/11
I congratulate the plan's authors for injecting some realism into conventional views of this conflict. It is realistic for the Jordan River to be Israel's security barrier. It is realistic for hundreds of thousands of Israelis in West Bank not to be forced to relocate. 2/11
But they took those & other principles and stretched them beyond all recognition. #Israeli security control of #JordanValley became full sovereignty; not uprooting hundreds of thousands of settlers became not uprooting even 1 settler. There are no Solomonic judgments here. 3/11

Some folks evidently need a reminder of how the Israeli-#Palestinian conflict has played out. A thread:
In 1947, Palestinian leaders, such as they were, refused the mere concept of Jews getting the human right of self-determination enshrined in the UN Charter. They refused it outright. As did all of Israel's Arab neighbors.
Under the UN Partition Plan, Jews and Palestinians would get a state. Jews would get a larger state, but composed 60% of desert, and with more space (55% of the land) because they were expecting huge inflows of Jewish refugees from Europe.

#OTD Sunday 22 Jan 1995, 09:20 #Palestinian #terrorists detonated 2 explosive devices, several minutes apart, at a crowded bus stop for soldiers at Beit Lid, central Israel. Rescuers assisting the victims of the 1st explosion became victims of the 2nd explosion #TerrorVictims /1
#OTD 22 Jan 1995, the Beit Lid attack murdered 22, wounded 66.
Perpetrated by 2 members of #Palestinian Islamic Jihad from the #Gaza Strip. At the houses of the #terrorists, 1000s of supporters gathered to express delight at the murders. #TerrorVictims /2

#Switzerland is paying again to the (#UNRWA United Nations #Palestinian Relief Fund.
Because the @UN #Palestinian aid agency was criticized for #mismanagement,and #Antisemitism #Switzerland stopped paying in #July. Now it has lifted the payment freeze, but #Switzerland has resumed #payments to #UNRWA at around CHF 25 million (€ 23 million).
the Directorate for Development and Cooperation (#Deza) decided on December 12 to end the payment freeze. In view of the measures initiated and the confirmation by the Secretary General of the United Nations that no #donor #money has been misappropriated,

You're about to hear a lot of garbage from media about the @StateDept decision on #Israel today. Reality: Team Obama's shameful, last gasp, UNSC Resolution (2334) upended decades of US policy and was designed to kick Israel in the teeth. This reverses that huffpost.com/entry/obama-de…

More sirens. Seems like a large barrage by PIJ after a quiet night.

@UNRWA
While demanding #humanitarian aid from across the #globe, the #Palestinian Authority spent $2.1 billion to fund #Islamic #terrorism between 2011 and 2018.
Billions of #dollars in foreign aid have been unaccounted for – money that was supposed to go to #Palestinian citizens under the oppressive and #militant #jihadist government run by President Mahmoud Abbas and the #Islamic #terrorist group #Hamas
money that supposedly went to programs that haven’t existed for many years.

Since these false accusations are regurgitated ad-nauseum here, use this #Thread to counter accusations of #Apartheid, and reply to tantrum tossing lifelong losers who squeal that the world should #Boycott, #Sanction and #Divest from #Israel #BDS
An attempt to disguise hatred and propaganda with a facade of humanitarian concern is quite apparent for all to see. As stated on many occasions if you're looking for apartheid in The Middle East and accuse Israel you have the wrong address!
In #Israel #Arabs have more rights that they would have anywhere else in the region, and every poll result shows they consistently prefer to remain in Israel rather than live in a future #Palestinian state.

I can’t see how @netanyahu will continue to prime minister, if exit polls are correct ...
And considering Lieberman won’t join a narrow coalition with religious parties
But a so-called national (Jewish) unity government with Blue and White, Likud & Yisrael Beteino will prove no better than the present government; in fact there’s a good reason to expect it to be worse in terms of its potency to project harm ...

Will Bibi’s War Become America’s War?

1/ The #HebronMassacre happened 90 years ago on Shabbat Ekev. This was no "ordinary" massacre, like maybe 10 minutes of #MassShootings leaving 67 dead. Each one was horribly tortured in unimaginable ways.
In this thread, I bring the GRAPHIC DETAILS, because the world should know.
2/ All the details were published at the time in the following newspapers: Haaretz Sep. 1st ; Doar Hayom Sep. 2nd +Sep. 6th, 1929 and so on on other papers like Davar.
More details were published later on in September when the victims were taken out of their graves to check them.
3/ Nobody escaped the #Arab terrorists cruelty. They used knives, daggers, clubs, swords. Starting with the babies, they cut their heads, gave them to their mothers until they were murdered too.
The 9 months old Abushdid baby was among them.
