Peace In Palestine? Don't Believe It, Not For A Moment

From the Jerusalem Post:
Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has crossed the Rubicon and voiced “unprecedented” readiness to reach a peace deal with Israel, sources close to the efforts to renew talks between Israel and the Palestinians have told The Jerusalem Post.

Abbas, according to the sources, made this clear to President Donald Trump during their meeting at the White House last week. The president plans to use his trip to Israel later this month to receive assurances from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that he, too, is committed to a peace agreement.

Since his meeting with Trump last week, Abbas has changed his rhetoric, issuing a number of statements meant to reflect flexibility on previous demands. He has, for example, said that he would renew the talks under Trump’s auspices without preconditions. In the past, he had said he would not negotiate with Netanyahu without a freeze to settlement construction.
Hmmmm. Remember the Oslo Accords?
The Oslo Accords are a set of agreements between the government of Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO): the Oslo I Accord, signed in Washington, D.C., in 1993 and the Oslo II Accord, signed in Taba in 1995.
That went over well, dinnit? And now another "deal?"
Something will happen, either by chance or staged, that will put a kibosh on the new deal.

This is just a Muslim tactic to ensure that the annual $500 million or so that the US gives the Palestinian Authority every year is undisturbed as Trump has made it clear he will not put up with the Muslim zealots' nonsense. Since the Oslo Accords were signed in 1995, the US has given them over $5 billion in aid (see below). The US is the world's most generous donor to these people.

The Book of Revelations tells us that this is not going to end until Christ Himself settles the matter. Then and only then will there be peace for a while.

Since the establishment of limited Palestinian self-rule in the West Bank and Gaza Strip in the mid-1990s, the U.S. government has committed more than $5 billion in bilateral economic and non-lethal security assistance to the Palestinians, who are among the world’s largest per capita recipients of international foreign aid. Successive Administrations have requested aid for the Palestinians in apparent support of (1) promoting the prevention or mitigation of terrorism against Israel; (2) fostering stability, prosperity, and self-governance in the West Bank that may aid Israeli-Palestinian diplomatic prospects; and (3) meeting humanitarian needs. The long-term utility of U.S. aid in encouraging regional stability and Palestinian economic and political self sufficiency might depend to some extent on progress toward a political solution that addresses Palestinian national aspirations and Israeli security demands.
Oh bullshit. They stole the money.

Why should we give the Philistines .01 cent?
