Tidbits and comments. Part 404

La “verite'” est ce qui est assez coherent pour l’accepter avec un cas limite de de satisfaction.

Trump is not the first US president to express interest in purchasing Greenland. Harry Truman’s administration made an offer in 1946, after first considering trading Alaska for parts of the Arctic island. Before that, Andrew Johnson administration made a bid for Greenland.

$100 million: Amount the Truman administration offered to purchase Greenland. $500 billion: One estimate for how much it would cost to buy Greenland today.

n 1868, US secretary of state William Seward tasked Robert J. Walker, a former governor and US treasury secretary, with evaluating whether or not to buy Iceland and Greenland. Walker recommended both, “but especially the latter. The reasons are political and commercial.” The political reason was to outflank England and eventually make Canada part of the US; the commercial reasons were mineral wealth and fisheries.

Harry Truman floated the idea to better position the US against the Soviet Union, but America worked out political solutions with Denmark, including the creation of NATO, that obviated a purchase. In 1951, the US builds Thule Air Base on Greenland.

Mayhem in Israel: apartheid State of Israel is starting its downhill trend toward Chaos: Army commander begging settlers to carry arms to defend it. Sort like during colonial America, settlers should carry arms when out of their settlements

Why Bush Jr. had to claim “Mission Accomplished” in occupying Iraq on a aircraft carrier, wearing pilot outfit, when the mission had just started for “establishing a democratic state” in Iraq? All the previous statements about installing a democratic system in Iraq and eliminating weapons of mass destruction and… were packs of lies and throwing dust in the eyes of the US citizens and world community.

Apartheid: separate sets of laws to “citizens”, grouped on ethnic fictional fabrication.

Capitalism: separate set of privileges to classes of “citizens”, grouped on level of material slavery functions

When we talk of identity, we often think of groups such as black Muslim lesbians in wheelchairs. This is because identity only seems to become an issue when it is challenged or under threat.

Our classic Default Man is rarely under existential threat. Consequently, his identity remains not examined. It ambles along blithely, never having to stand up for its rights or to defend its homeland.

When talking about identity groups, the word “community” often crops up. The working class, gay people, black people or Muslims are always represented by a “community leader”.

The 20th century witnessed 140 armed conflicts, totaling more than 150 millions in casualties and at least 4 folds in severe injuries .  More than 20 conflicts produced over one million killed.  WWI generated about 9 million killed and WWII more than 60 millions.  Two dozen conflicts are still on going for decades and the toll is accumulating.

The state of the world: Russia is the largest land mass. China the most populous country. EU the largest economy union. USA the biggest bag of shit. Every US official thinks he is entitled overseas to threaten anyone of the US diktat.

The Deal of the Century is to maintain Israel existence as a State. The deal is to open the trade and maritime routes to Israel’s export from Morocco to Yemen, with insignificant transit fees. Egypt and Jordan are to be the main transit platforms.The Palestinians are to be the cheap workforce.  Lebanon, Syria and Iraq have already blocked this deal.

The English Channel is a boundary that mankind can’t stop pushing. Franky Zapata just crossed it on a hoverboard, but it’s also been crossed via hot air balloons, a hovercraft, an electric plane, a carbon-fiber wingsuit, a pedal-powered plane, and good old arms and legs. But the hardest way to cross might be by car, if Brexit throws the crucial economic link into chaos. This channel between France and England is one of the heaviest traffic for maritime commercial cargoes between the North Sea and the Atlantic

In many traditional gift economies, the trick is courting the elites. “This only work if you are a big enough company that the banks can tell themselves that you’ll one day give them a lucrative deal. If you’re not big and rich, you’ll have to pay for stuff.”

The gift economy is a tradition among social classes: The wealthier you are, the more expensive the gift should be. Actually, many are declining wedding invitations in order to save on the gift expenses.

A plausible settlement for the “Deal of Century” to both Palestinians and Israelis

Note: The created State of Israel by the colonial powers has all the blueprints of a colonial occupation of a land by force. The State of Israel, with all the determination of the colonial powers to keep it alive and floating financially, politically and militarily, has gone way too far in its brutality, its calamitous myths, and unwavering decision to wipe out the culture and identity of the Palestinian people.

This article, (dated on November 13, 2008) is a temporary resolution until the far-right Israelis desist from their occupation mentality and reach a reasonable state of common status of living together with Palestinians on equal rights. Until then, Israel is our existential enemy.

There are reams and reams of plans and counter plans and resolution suggested to containing this everlasting unjust and uncalled for reality of the 20th century monstrosity that permitted the establishment of the State of Israel by displacing its original inhabitants (the Palestinians), as so many monstrosities in this century.

There are two viable solutions for the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, short of exterminating one party or the other or most probably both, that has been spreading death, disabilities, miseries, indignities and humiliation since 1920.

The Israeli Olmert PM has lately declared that the time to facing truth has come.

Since the Madrid convention in 1990 among the “Arab States” (excluding Syria) and Israeli delegations and mediated by the US Administration, during the Bush Sr. tenure as President, for a resolution of this conflict, it was becoming evident that the “Biblical” strategy of Israel, for further expansion and pre-emptive wars, is no longer tenable, especially after its total failure in 2006 of invading Lebanon.

A resolution was contemplated but the US had an old battle plan to invade Iraq before resolving this conflict.

The Bush “Son” Jr. administration dusted off this war plan and invaded Iraq. This invasion has failed miserably but Israel is no longer necessary for the strategic interest of the US in the Middle East:  The US has military bases in the Arab Gulf States and Saudi Kingdom, and it has many heavy weight allies among the Arabic States.

And the price of oil on the market is far cheaper than physically securing its exploitation and distribution in Iraq or elsewhere or even resuming plans to intimidating China and blackmailing her by outdated military presence in Iraq.

The return of the heavy investments of the US in Israel has been reflecting sharp negative rates of return for decades, politically, economically, and socially within the US society and foreign policies.

My plan is of two phases:

The first phase is recognizing the State of Palestine by the United Nation, a State self-autonomous, independent and all.  It is of primordial interest by the world community and the Jewish State that the Palestinian people recover their dignity and rights as a full fledged State and be permitted to exercise the complex task of administering and governing a State.

At least from a psychological necessity, the Palestinian people should feel that persistent resistance and countless “martyrs” for re-establishing their rights as legitimate and independent people have brought fruits, as any genuine national resistance ultimately should.

The second phase is the merging of the two States of Palestine and Israel into a confederate State with a central government and several self-autonomous “cantons”.  I can envisage the following cantons: West Bank, Gaza (including Escalon), Galilee (including Haifa and Akka), Judea (around Jerusalem and Bethlehem), the “East Shore” (Tel Aviv, Yafa), and the Negev (including Akaba).

I have this impression that the tight religious extremists on both sides would opt to move to Gaza and Judea, and the very secular citizens would move to the East Shore or Galilee, and the economically minded people might reside in the Negev backed by strong financial incentives.

The second phase will witness the return of the Palestinian refugees as ordered by the UN resolution of 193 in 1948 and the refugees would have the right to select the canton of their preferences.

I can foresee that the key offices in the central government would be equally, including genders, shared by the Palestinians and Israelis on a rotation imposed law.

The representation in the cantons would be proportional to the general census of the period (at 5 years intervals).  The representation among sects, factions, or other types of social divisions within each “people” would also follow the proportions in the census.

I suggest to the interest of the future “Palesrael” State that Israel let Lebanon structure and experience, without foreign interventions, study the pitfalls and strength of such a system of co-existence and avoid the unnecessary miseries of minor civil wars and countless frustrations in its future unfolding.

It would be inevitable that the State of “Palesreal” be guaranteed a neutrality status (No pre-emptive wars within and outside its borders) by the world community and the regional powers.  It is evident that this could be plausible after Syria recover all its lands and settles on a political constitution that safeguard its autonomous decisions.

Then, it is hoped and strongly desired that the State of Lebanon would secure this neutrally status.  Amen.

My Speech for London Rally in Support of Palestinians’ Rights to Exist, Resist and Return

My name is Shahd Abusalama and I’m a 3rd generation Palestinian refugee, born and raised in Jabalia Refugee Camp, northern Gaza.

I’m standing here with so many Palestinians, born in Palestine and exile, to tell the founding Zionists of Israel who assumed that the old will die and the young will forget, that we will not forget Palestine, and we will never surrender our fundamental rights to exist, resist and return.

We stand representative of many indigenous communities who faced various forms of oppression across the history of European colonialism and imperialism, to remind the world that settler colonialism is not a culture of the past, but a current reality that we have lived and defied from America, Australia and Ireland to Palestine.

My grandmother described a peaceful childhood in green fields of citrus and olive trees in our village Beit-Jirja. This life, the tastes, the sounds and the smells remained fixated only in her memories as Beit Jirja was dismantled alongside other 530 villages and towns that were depopulated and destroyed by Zionist thugs in 1948.

For Palestinians, the Nakba was never a one-off event that happened in 1948.

Israeli colonial oppression has never stopped and many Palestinian communities within Israel, including the people of Khan Al-Ahmar, are still fighting against their ethnic cleansing as we stand here.

My grandparents are present today more than ever as we mark the 71st anniversary of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine, for what happened then is why I was born in Jabalia with a gun pointed at my head.

During my mother’s labour, Israeli soldiers disrupted her way to Jabalia UNRWA Clinic as they forced a curfew that indoctrinated to shoot any moving being. Shooting to kill was common in the 1st Intifada when I came to life, and is a common practice now.

We saw it in the shooting and maiming of Gaza’s Great Return March protesters who stood with their bare chests against Israeli snipers to claim their humanity and to bring their right of return, an issue that Israel firmly rejected across the past 7 decades on racist grounds, to the centre of political debate.

Their cries for justice come amidst US-Israeli attempts to push the right of return and Jerusalem “off the table”. It is time that we call those world leaders what they are: racist trolls. It is time to stand firm in our support of the Palestinian right of return, as without justice, there will be no meaningful peace.

Palestinians in the Gaza Strip just survived another a 3-day deadly Israeli attack last weekend, which claimed 25 lives, including two pregnant women, two toddlers and a 12 year old child.

While world news was quick to move on after the truce was announced, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip returned to a daily struggle for survival while more deadly violence is expected at any moment.

That’s how my family welcomed Ramadan. Following the truce, I heard my parents calling relatives and friends and saying, “glad you survived” before continuing “Ramadan Kareem”.

Imagine living in an open-air prison where there is constant presence of death, and fear of walls falling inwards. This fear of being uncertain about anything, including your own life, even while in your home, is terrifying.

This is what 2 million people faced last weekend as they are besieged by Israeli weaponry from air, land and sea, turning Gaza into a laboratory for its lethal arms, which Israel markets as ‘battle-tested’ in notorious arms fairs around the world, such as DSEI which London is hosting again this year.

It is not a coincidence that Gaza comes under attack during Israeli elections over and over again.

Those elections are led by criminals using Palestinian children’s blood to win popular support.

Meanwhile, the world is about to celebrate Eurovision in Apartheid Israeli on top of an ethnically-cleansed Palestinian land, a show whose whole purpose is to expose Israel’s ‘prettier face’ while deflecting global attention from its daily crimes against the Palestinians.

Shame on all contestant countries, all the participants and audiences if they still support Eurovision in Israel while our victims’ blood haven’t dried.

This is nothing new. This is our decades-long lived experience that is normalised by a dominant media discourse that finds it comfortable to avoid addressing the power imbalance between the occupier and the occupied, to remove the context of settler colonialism and reduce it to conflict, effectively demonizing Palestinians and their legitimate struggle against their systematic dehumanization.

Our injustice is also normalized by tax payers whose money is paid as military ‘aid’ for Israel, by politicians who suddenly fall short on words of condemnation once the perpetrator is Israel.

And by international institutions doing business with Israel or corporations that enable Israeli crimes, by Muslims of the world who normalise relations with Israel and buy Israeli dates merged with our pains of loss and dispossession, by Zionist Jews and Evangelical Christians who support the uninterrupted process of ethnic cleansing against the native people of the ‘promised land’ in the name of God.

The best response to such brutality and normalisation is active solidarity!

We have a beautiful demonstration of solidarity today with thousands uniting from different races, religions, genders, professions and cities, to say: we’re not turning our back to the Palestinian people. We know too well that whether Palestine on news headlines or not, Israel is perpetrating violence uninterruptedly.

Every minute, innocent souls are buried, (as if it should be a common occurrence when Israel does the killing)

And building that took a lifetime to build are flattened. It is urgent that people of conscience all over the world join in solidarity and resist the collusion of their governments and institutions in this long-standing crime against humanity.

Note 1: Do you know that 80,000 Evangelical preacher/pastors main duty is to disseminate world Zionism ideology?

Note 2: Do you know that this bogus “Deal of Century” was Not discussed with the Palestinians?

Again, what is Trump/Kushner infamous “Deal of century”?

The Trump administration will unveil the first phase of its long-awaited blueprint for Middle East peace next month at a conference in the region designed to highlight economic benefits that could be reaped if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved, the White House said on Sunday.  (The political terms are Not yet exposed)

The plan, which has been two years in the making, envisions large-scale investment and infrastructure work in the Palestinian territories but the central political elements remain mostly unknown.

However, the Palestinian leadership said they weren’t consulted about the US-led economic conference.


Israel journalist: ‘The deal of the century is the joke of century’

The voice is clear, a slight Hebrew accent can be detected when Gideon Levy speaks English. He is precise and concise, showing off maybe some “chutzpah”, but his way of saying things is direct. Does this make Gideon Levy annoying? Certainly not. On the contrary, kindly and patiently he explains what is at stake here.

Some call Gideon Levy Israel’s conscience, others would rather insult him.

Levy is a whistleblower. He would probably hate to be described as such. He is a journalist, and now a columnist at Israeli English daily Haaretz. He is also a board member there. Every week, his columns contradict the nationalist and religious ideology of those in power.

The most hated man in Israel

Levy has the distinct honour of having been considered by the authorities as a “threat” to the country’s security. What did he do to stir up such anger?

Almost every week for three decades he visited the occupied territories and described what he saw there.

Even though he has not been able to go to Gaza since 2006 (Israeli law prevents any Israeli from entering the Strip), he was able to highlight the killing of Palestinians. His book, “The punishment of Gaza“, earned him the nickname “Hamas propagandist” by far-right nationalists. His work led renowned journalist Robert Fisk to ask: “Is he the most hated man in Israel or just the most heroic.”

His goal is simple; re-humanising the Palestinians when everything is being done to dehumanise them, he explains.

From the occupation to the slow suffocation of their culture, dispossession, demolition, erasing their names, their villages, their society…

Levy’s columns speak of daily struggles, give details about people’s stories, name them and give them back their faces, ages and deaths.

This includes the story of a Bedouin woman who, in 1986, was forced to give birth at an Israeli checkpoint. Her newborn died because she could not reach hospital in time and had to walk the two kilometres alone with the baby in her arms.

He remains surprised, he says, by the average Israeli’s ignorance of a reality that often takes place a few minutes away from home. Israeli society “is living in denial, in lies. But totally consciously. People choose to live like this,” he tells MEMO.

“Israeli society is a very aggressive society. But you can’t generalise this. There are easy times and there are hard ones, when there is a war for example. But I still write about Gaza and its uprising.

I wrote that what is happening in Gaza is the uprising of the Gaza ghetto. People became very aggressive.”

This reference to the uprising of the Warsaw ghetto during the Second World War brings to mind a symbolic part of the Israeli “historiography”. “That, might upset people, but I still have total freedom of speech; in my newspaper but not only there. Also on TV. It’s not pleasant every time but I can’t say that they’re trying to shut my mouth.”

Shadow theatre

His years in the media have allowed him to understand Israeli society and the officials that govern it. The latest Israeli elections, which saw incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu re-elected, are just the latest events which have stirred controversy, not least because of the numerous corruption cases in which Netanyahu is entangled.

In spite of this, his win was no surprise to Levy. “He created this situation in which people believe there is no alternative to him. He rules mainly by spreading fear. But he spreads fear and presents himself as the only one who can protect people. He’s a very talented politician with a very good rhetoric.”

He has also created a situation in which many people believe that these corruption charges are false and that he is simply innocent, he is a victim, and they identify with him.

“Gantz was not a real challenger and he will disappear from the political stage very quickly, I think. But many people voted for him. In fact, they didn’t vote for Gantz but they voted against Netanyahu. There’s people who actually want Netanyahu out,” he adds.

But both men are the same, he continues. “After the operation in Gaza, Gantz said the same things as Netanyahu. When it comes to the major issues, like the occupation, there is not much difference between the two of them.”

Netanyahu’s international connections worry Levy, as do his friendships with right-wing governments in Brazil, the US and Hungary.

“Netanyahu can be friends only with those people. Because nationalists and neo-fascists find common language with other fascists… He can’t really dwell on who is anti-Semitic or not, because at the end of the day, what matters is to maintain the occupation. It justifies everything in his eyes.”

The deal of the century: a joke

It is these “friends” that are supporting Israel in peace agreements and annulling previous deals including those which discuss a two-state solution for the Palestine-Israel conflict. Netanyahu, Levy says, “doesn’t speak about it anymore”. “Even when he spoke about it, it was very easy for him because he knew nothing will come out of it. It was the best way to maintain the status quo without doing anything.”

The two-state solution is dead. It’s dead since there are so many settlers and they created an irreversible situation. We have now almost 700,000 settlers and nobody will evacuate them and nobody will ever intend to evacuate them. Without an evacuation, there is no Palestinian state; it’s a joke. (This statement means: we are ready for a forceful transfer of settlers in due time?)

The US’ latest peace plan – dubbed the “deal of the century” – is due to be unveiled in June after the Muslim month of fasting comes to an end. This, Levy says, is the “joke of the century”.

“It will just give Israel more years to maintain the occupation and to carry on its crimes. Nobody can take this seriously. It comes from Trump and [his son-in-law and advisor] Kushner, who can take it seriously?…

It can’t be serious because it’s not fair. Those people are totally one-sided. How can you even consider listening to them when they so clearly stand with only one side and they are so aggressive towards the other side? What kind of mediators can they be?” he adds.

Even the UN declaration that the besieged Gaza Strip will be “uninhabitable” by 2020 cannot save Palestinians there, Levy explains. “It’s not a war. It’s a terrible prison. From time to time, the prisoners are trying to resist, to protest. But the guards hit back harshly. And they stay silent for a few months but again they try to break the cage. It will continue to be like this forever.”

“There is no plan for Gaza because nobody cares. Even Europe doesn’t care much. I’m not even mentioning the US. Everyone became quiet and unmoved. Until the catastrophe comes. But as long as it’s not here, nobody cares.”

Israel against Jews

The occupation led Levy to vote for the Arab-Israeli parties in the last election, he explains this is “because for me it’s hard to vote for any Zionist party. I cannot identify myself anymore with any Zionist list.”

“I’m not anti-Zionist,” he explains, “Post Zionist would be the right definition. I just realised that Zionism completed its purpose; now it’s about creating a democracy, nothing else but a democracy. The ‘all equal’ rights. I don’t see another solution but a one-state solution.”

The debate about Israel’s occupation and what solutions there are to it, has led to accusations of “anti-Semitism”, Levy says.

It paralyses Europe, because nobody wants to be labelled an anti-Semitic. And therefore, they don’t talk about international laws and how they are violated by the illegal occupation. They keep apologising for being anti-Semitic, totally dismissing the crimes perpetrated by the occupation forces.

“There is anti-Semitism in the world but way less than what Israel claims,” he explains. “People in Europe, people with conscience should say we have the full right, more, it’s our duty, to criticise the occupation, to be anti-Zionist.”

Is there hope for change stemming from the Jewish diaspora, especially those in America?

“There are changes sure, but let’s not exaggerate. Still, the Jewish establishment is supporting Israel blindly, automatically supporting the occupation and Netanyahu. Yes, there is a new generation and a new camp there, which is very promising because they are very liberal.

But there is a long way to go, because for most of them, standing against Israel is something they can’t do yet.

But this movement goes hand in hand with changes in the [US’] Democratic party. This is even more promising because it is the first time ever that Netanyahu has been called a racist. We’ve never heard that before.”

Deal of the Century Adds “New” to the Four Thousand Year Old Name “Palestine”

The apartheid regime we know as “Israel” was built on the very ruins of Palestine and imposed a brutal regime on those who still live in their country. Millions of Palestinians still languish in refugee camps in and around Palestine, yet Israel and its allies around the world celebrate “Israeli independence.”

JERUSALEM, PALESTINE — Nakba Day — the day when Palestinians commemorate the destruction of their country and the mass killing and forced eviction of their people — is coming up, and with each passing day, another disturbing story unfolds.

Perhaps the most disturbing story so far is the plan to present Palestine with a new name, “New Palestine.” (How imaginative)

This, according to a rumored leak, is what Donald Trump and Jared Kushner are going to present to an anticipating world as part of the so-called “Deal of the Century.”

Also according to the leak, aside from a demand for Palestinians to accept a new name as part of the “Deal of the Century” — forgoing the name “Palestine,” which has been used to describe their land since the Bronze Age — the Palestinian people will have to accept that their heritage and their history will be erased and their land will be taken away for good.

In other words, what Palestinians are going to receive, according to the leak, is a new name but no country, and they will be expected to accept this or else they will be denied access to foreign aid, not only from the U.S. but other countries as well.

From elections to Gaza to Independence Day

Things move fast on the Israeli side of occupied Palestine.

Israel recently held elections, then — within a few weeks and before a new government was even formed — Israel lashed out with a deadly attack on Gaza.

Then, Israel recognized a few solemn days, the first one Holocaust Remembrance Day and the second, a day to commemorate Israeli soldiers who had fallen in battle. Then Israelis were off to celebrate “Israeli Independence.”

On the Palestinian side, no sooner does one tragedy end than a second one follows, no time for the fresh blood on the ground to dry before more is spilled.

The lovely face of 16-year-old Fatima Hijazi, shot by an Israeli sniper, is still fresh in people’s hearts when more, even younger casualties are reported. Palestinians go from mourning to mourning with no end in sight.

Over the past several years, a new phenomenon has risen, a joint memorial service where Israelis and Palestinians join together to commemorate their fallen loved ones.

While the idea of such an event may seem appealing to some, the moral equivalency it tries to create between the victims of the violence and those who lost their lives while perpetuating the violence is troubling.

However, in the political climate that now exists among Israelis, this is considered progressive. While this event was permitted to proceed, right-wing gangs came by to protest the initiative and lashed out with obscenities at the participants: “Sons of whores, may God take all of you stinking lefties! Death to Arabs!” and on and on.

Celebrating independence

A custom that can only be described as insensitive, if not outright cruel, and which has been in place since Palestine was destroyed, is the celebration of Israeli independence. Just as Israeli elections were held on the day that Palestinians commemorate the massacre at Deir Yassin, Israel callously celebrates a day of independence at the same time as Palestinians mourn the loss of their country.

The apartheid regime we know as “Israel” was built on the very ruins of Palestine and imposed a brutal regime on those who still live in their country. Millions of Palestinians still languish in refugee camps in and around Palestine, yet Israel and its allies around the world celebrate.

Israel Memorial Day

Israelis are not the indigenous people of Palestine. What we know today as “Israelis” are people who came to colonize mostly during the time of the British Mandate in Palestine, and they did so largely with the assistance of the British government.

The British mandate over Palestine, which was, in reality, an occupation of the country, facilitated the creation of the Zionist apartheid regime in Palestine. The Jews who came to colonize and settle in Palestine were never oppressed or occupied; in fact, they were privileged. The Jewish settlements in Palestine had services like running water and electricity long before many of the Palestinian communities did, and they were assisted by the British in every possible way.

The biblical Zionist narrative

The name “New Palestine” becomes even more absurd in light of the fact that the name Palestine was, “first documented in the late Bronze Age, about 3,200 years ago.”

Furthermore, according to a new book by historian Nur Masalha, “the name Palestine is the conventional name used between 450 B.C. and 1948 A.D. to describe the geographical region between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River.” These quotes are from Masalha’s Palestine, A Four Thousand Year History, published by Zed Books in 2018.

Palestine: A Four Thousand Year HistoryMasalha — professor of history at the London University School of Oriental and African Studies, or SOAS — takes on the difficult task of seriously, scientifically, and one may add successfully, challenging the prevailing narrative regarding Palestine.

This is clearly no simple feat but it is one in which the historian Masalha succeeds in a manner that is both admirable and convincing. (Just peruse the old pictures of Palestinians and Palestine before and after British mandated power)

Unfortunately, odds are neither Jared Kushner or Benjamin Netanyahu — the two men who are most likely to be behind the “New Palestine” and the “Deal of the Century” — will ever read this important history book.

Revealing aspects of Palestinian history that Zionists would prefer remain in the dark, Masalha’s book is essential reading. Until the history of Palestine is told and the cruel reality in which Palestinians live today is exposed, Palestine will never be free.

Is that the plan for the “Deal of the century” to liquidate the Palestinian UN rights to Return to homeland?

Khaled bin Selman, one of the sons of Saudi Kingdom, and ambassador to USA, relayed the details of the “Deal of the Century” to the Kingdom.
The liquidation of the identity of the Palestinian people and scrapping their UN rights to return to their Homeland Palestine are under way by the Trump administration.
The details are as followed:
1) Ultimately, the US plan is to gather $700 bn in what will be called the “Palestine Financial Box”, $100bn from USA, $100bn from Japan, $100Bn from South Korea, $200bn from Saudi Kingdom, $50bn from Canada and the rest from the EU, particularly Germany. The US will retain $200bn in the Box.
 2) Jordan will receive $250bn, to settle one million Palestinians, Egypt $250bn to settle 1.5 million, Iraq  $200bn to settle 1,250,000 Palestinians, primarily in Iraq Kurdistan region.
3) Egypt will relinquish 7,000 square km around the Asrish province, an originally Palestinian land before Britain gave them away to Egypt. It is estimated that this land will provide for 5 million Palestinians.
The plan is of 9 phases. the first phase was to acknowledge Jerusalem the Capital of Israel, the second phase is for the US congress to second the Israeli law  that Israel is for the Jews only, the third is to pressure most countries to admit that the Israeli settlements are Legal and on.
Note 1: The US and Japan are the 2 highest countries that accumulated sovereign debt and in the trillion. Japan might sign in under duress, but the USA never delivered on promises. And Saudi Kingdom sovereign fund is empty and already borrowing money to “replenish” it. And Israel has been systematically demolishing all Eu funded institutions in Gaza and the West Bank. Unless Israel demonstrate some respect to the EU endeavors, this plan is totally far-fetched.
Note 2: The US has to be very patient before engaging in another pre-emptive war, as it is its innate habit to resolve world problems. First, the cease fire in Yemen has to be reached, second, a satisfactory government in Iraq agreed upon, third, a quick political resolution in Syria agreed upon, and fourth, a satisfactory government in Lebanon resolved.
Note 3: President Sisi of Egypt declared that Egypt will never relinquish any piece of land to transfer other people.
Note 4: This deal is Not taking into account the determined Palestinian Friday March to return to Homeland, 25 successive Fridays with thousand injured and hundred killed by Israeli snipers live bullets. The Palestinians have been transferred from their homes 5 times since 1948
Note 5: Settling the Palestinians in Lebanon is viewed as a de-facto case, since most civil war militia “leaders” are puppets to the colonial powers. But Lebanon has the mighty resistance force of Hezbollah, and a determined president with the largest parliamentary block who refuse any kinds of settlement of refugees, neither Palestinians or Syrians.
Note 6: No one, State or citizens, believe in the US promises. Thus, for any chance of this plan to get under way, Jordan and Egypt have to get their sovereign dept wipe out before any second step is contemplated.

وقد قام سفير المملكة السعودية في واشنطن الأمير خالد بن سلمان نجل الملك سلمان ملك السعودية بنقل تفاصيل اقتراحات واشنطن الى شقيقه ولي العهد السعودي محمد بن سلمان بعدما قامت واشنطن بالتنسيق مع إسرائيل للخطوة الرابعة في تنفيذ صفقة القرن.

يتم تقديم 250 مليار دولار للاردن منها 80 مليار دولار لاقامة مدن وبلدات وشبكات ري مياه وكهرباء في المنطقة غر المأهولة من الاردن لتوطين الفلسطينيين مع عائلاتهم على ان يبقى للموازنة الأردنية 170 مليار دولار تنتشل الأردن من ازمته المالية والتي هي بحدود 45 مليار دولار وهذا ما يبقي للاردن 125 مليار دولار كي يقوم ببناء مصانع وبنية تحتية وكهرباء ويعزز اقتصاد الاردن بمبلغ لم يحصل عليه الأردن في تاريخه بعد كل ما يتكلفه بشأن توطن الفلسطينيين وخروجه من الازمة الاقتصادية ويبقى له مبلغ صافي 125 مليار دولار

اما المراحل لصفقة القرن فكانت التالية:
1-اعتراف الولايات المتحدة بالقدس عاصمة لإسرائيل وسحبها من اية مفاوضات.

2-اعتراف الولايات المتحدة وطلبها من عدة دول الاعتراف أيضا بالمستوطنات الإسرائيلية التي أقيمت في الضفة الغربية وهي تضم حاليا 650 الف إسرائيلي والمخطط يعمل لرفع العدد عبر إقامة مستعمرات جديدة الى مليون ونصف إسرائيلي يهودي.

3-اعتراف الولايات المتحدة بالدستور الجديد لاسرائيل الذي يقول ان إسرائيل دولة قومية يهودية والشعب اليهودي هو صاحب الأرض وان الفلسطينيين لجأوا الى ارض إسرائيل وفق الدستور الإسرائيلي ولا يحق لهم المواطنة مثل الشعب الاسرائيلي اليهودي.

4-اتخاذ الرئيس الأميركي ترامب قرار بقطع كل تمويل من الولايات المتحدة والطلب لدول أخرى أيضا قطع تمويل منظمة الاونروا التي توزع المساعدات الطبية والغذائية ورعاية الأطفال الفلسطينيين في مخيماتهم البائسة أي انها قطعت مليار و300 مليون دولار مما جعل الاونروا تطرح الصوت عاليا لدول العالم كي تقوم بتمويلها لاكمال رعايتها للشعب الفلسطيني في المخيمات التي طال عمرها سبعين سنة.

5-نقل الأمير خالد بن سلمان رسالة من الرئيس ترامب الى القيادة السعودية وسلمها الى شقيقه ولي العهد محمد بن سلمان بالتنسيق بين واشنطن وإسرائيل وتقضي بالبدء بإقناع دولتين هما مصر والأردن بتوطين 3 ملايين فلسطيني، موزعين على مليون فلسطيني في الأردن ومليوني فلسطيني على حدود غزة وصولا الى مدينة العريش وعلى امتداد رفح وتوسيع مساحة غزة الى مساحة إضافية لها هي 7 الاف كلم، هي الجزء الفلسطيني من سيناء تاريخيا لكن مصر حصلت عليها في زمن الانتداب البريطاني،

وتتسع مساحة سبعة الاف كلم لحوالي خمسة ملايين لاجئ فلسطيني وهذا الامر بالاتفاق والتنسيق بين واشنطن وإسرائيل وبين واشنطن والسعودية على ان يتولى ولي عهد السعودية الاتصال بالأردن والقيادة الأردنية كذلك بالقيادة المصرية مع الرئيس الفريق اول عبد الفتاح السيسي.

6-تقوم الولايات المتحد بالطلب من اليابان دفع مئة مليار دولار على أساس ان واشنطن تحمي اليابان من الصين، كما تطلب من كوريا الجنوبية مئة مليار دولار وهي الدولة الغنية الثانية بعد اليابان تكنولوجيا وصناعيا وتقدم مئة مليار دولار لتوطين الفلسطينيين،

كما تقدم الولايات المتحدة مئة مليار دولار أيضا في صندوق توطين الفلسطينيين وتقدم السعودية 200 مليار دولار لصندوق توطين الفلسطينيين .

وهكذا يكون صندوق توطين الفلسطينيين قد جمع 500 مليار دولار. إضافة الى الطلب من كندا دفع 50 مليار دولار، ومن الاتحاد الأوروبي خاصة ألمانيا ما مجموعه من الـ26 دولة اوروبية 150 مليار دولار وبذلك يصبح مجموع قيمة ما جمعه صندوق توطين الفلسطينيين 700 مليار دولار.

8- يتم تقديم بعد مباحثات ومفاوضات مع مصر 250 مليار دولار لفتح حدود رفح غزة باتجاه مدينة العريش، وتوسيع مساحة غزة سبعة الاف كلم وبناء ابنية ومساكن وبيوت للفلسطينيين على هذه المساحة بقيمة مئة مليار دولار على ان تقوم شركات دولية بإقامة الأبنية والطرقات في كامل مساحة السبعة الاف كلم وبناء مرفأين على البحر لصيد السمك لان المنطقة غنية ومطلة على البحر الأحمر والبحر الأبيض المتوسط كذلك إقامة مطار دولي قرب العريش يكون مطار الدولة الفلسطينية في الارض التي حصلت عليها غزة من سيناء وهي 7 الاف كلم.

ويتم تسليم مصر 250 مليار دولار تصرف منها مئة مليار على توطين الفلسطينيين بحجم مليونين او مليونين ونصف في مساحة السبعة الاف كلم على ان يبقى مع كامل البنية التحتية من ري مياه وكهرباء ومستشفيات ومدارس على ان يبقى للاقتصاد المصري 150 مليار دولار تدعم وتنتشل مصر من ازمتها الاقتصادية وتخلق فرص عمل للشباب عبر إقامة مصانع ويتم تقديم لمصر والأردن اسباب تفضيلية لتصدير بضائعهم الى أوروبا والولايات المتحدة مع اعفاء من الرسوم الجمركية لكل بضائع الأردن ومصر مع الحصول على 150 مليار دولار لاقتصادها.

ويؤدي الغاء الروسم الجمركية على البضائع من الأردن وتوطين المليون فلسطيني على الأقل مع عائلاتهم الى ازدهار اقتصادي لدى الأردن ومصر مقابل الغاء الرسوم الجمركية على البضائع المصدرة الى الولايات المتحدة كذلك السعي مع اوروبا لاعفائهم من الرسوم الأوروبية الجمركية بناء على تنسيق بين الولايات المتحدة واسرائيل التي تريد الانتهاء وتصفية القضية الفلسطينية كذلك بالتنسيق مع السعودية التي تريد سحب ورقة مسألة القضية الفلسطينية من ايران وبالتالي نزع سبب أي وجود إيراني على حدود فلسطين المحتلة أي دولة إسرائيل القومية اليهودية التي اقرها مجلس النواب الاسرائيلي الكنيست ووافقت عليها واشنطن علنا واسرائيل طبعا والسعودية لم تعترض على ذلك بل ضمنيا وافقت عليه.

ويبقى 20 مليار دولار من الصندوق الذي تم جمعه لتوطين الفلسطينيين من الدول الغنية والصناعية في العالم بإشراف وزارة الخزانة الأميركية ويتم تقديم 200 مليار دولار للعراق لتوطين مليون ومئتي الف فلسطيني في العراق خاصة في المناطق الشمالية حيث محافظة صلاح الدين ونينوى والانبار وهنا الاكثرية السنية في هذه المناطق وفيها مساحات واسعة تتسع لمليار ونصف فلسطيني

على ان يحصل العراق على مئتي مليار دولار ويتم صرف 50 مليار دولار على توطين مليون و200 الف فلسطيني لبناء المساكن والابنية لهم مع طرقات ومستشفيات ومصانع فيما تحصل الخزينة العراقية على 150 مليار دولار لانها في عجز كبير نظرا للفساد الذي هدر أموال العراق منذ الحرب الاميركية عليه عام 2003 وتولي سلطات سرقت، وفق موقع بلومبرغ المالي والاقتصادي، وشخصيات عشرات المليارات حيث نشر الموقع 20 اسما لرؤساء وزراء وقيادات جيش ووزراء تبلغ ثروة كل واحد قيمة لا تقل عن 40 او 50 مليار دولار مع عشيرته.

وستكون الـ 150 مليار دولار عملية انقاذ اقتصادية للموازنة العراقية مقابل توطين المليون و200 الف فلسطيني حيث تقول واشنطن ان في العراق مساحات واسعة تتسع لمليون ونصف فلسطيني بشكل مريح جدا ودون كثافة سكانية. وتقدم السعودية ضمانة للحكومة العراقية بانها ستستمر في دعم الاقتصاد العراقي عبر إعطاء العراق نصف مليون برميل من النفط لمدة عشر سنوات.

سفير السعودية في واشنطن الأمير خالد بن سلمان نجل ملك السعودية وشقيق ولي العهد نقل كامل الخطة والرسالة الى ولي العهد السعودي شقيقه محمد بن سلمان كي يبدأ بالتحرك وتنفيذ الخطة بتوطين 4 ملايين و200 الف فلسطيني في العراق والأردن ومصر مقابل حلف إسرائيلي أميركي سعودي يدعم الدول الثلاث خاصة اميركا برفع الرسوم الجمركية عن كافة البضائع الاردنية المصرية الفلسطينية وتصديرها الى الولايات المتحدة وتقديم 700 مليار دولار موزعة 250 مليار لمصر و200 مليار للعراق و250 مليار دولار للاردن.

وهكذا تكون صفقة القرن قد اتمت المرحلة التاسعة منها وتم تقريبا بشكل نهائي تصفية القضية الفلسطينية وحصلت إسرائيل على الراحة من الكثافة الفلسطينية إضافة الى الغاء حق العودة نهائيا للفلسطينيين الى فلسطين المحتلة، وبالنسبة للولايات المتحدة تكون قد أعطت حليفتها الاولى ما تريد وفي ذات الوقت فرضت حلف أميركي مع إسرائيل ومصر والاردن والعراق والسعودية بالدرجة الأولى،

اما الطرف الثالث فهي السعودية التي تريد سحب ورقة ايران من الدخول في القضية والنضال الفلسطيني بعد توطين الفلسطينيين مما يجعل السعودية تعتقد ان ايران لن يكون لها دور في خط الممانعة والمقاومة ولا يعود لها أهمية وجود في العراق ولا مع حماس او الفلسطينيين ولا مع الأردن وخاصة مع سوريا حيث سيتم نقل مخيم اليرموك قرب دمشق ومخيم اللاذقية للفلسطينيين على شاطئ البحر لتوطينهم في الدول الثلاث العراق الأردن مصر وسحب ورقة حزب الله المدعوم إيرانيا ووجود صواريخه ومقاتليه في لبنان، وهذا ما تريده السعودية.

أخيرا هل يستطيع حلف إسرائيل اميركا السعودية تصفية القضية الفلسطينية ام يرفض الشارع العربي المرحلة الأخيرة من صفقة القرن؟

انها السنوات القادمة التي ستقرر هذا الامر، مع العلم ان نبض الشارع العربي يرفض الهيمنة الاسرائيلية الاميركية على المنطقة ويرفض تورط السعودية من اجل محاربة ايران في تصفية القضية الفلسطينية.
