Arab Radio: Should Palestinians accept the Trump Peace Plan?
By Ray Hanania
President Trump is preparing to unveil his “Deal of the Century” for Palestinian peace, the Trump Peace Plan. Naturally extremists on both sides, Israel and Palestine, will reject it because that’s what they do. They reject everything because their employer is conflict and they would lose their jobs if the conflict ended.
But I argue regardless of the details of the plan, Palestinians and Israelis should support this plan and make this plan work. It is the only hope to stop the cycle of violence and fear that holds Israelis and Palestinians hostage to a futureless existence.

Welcome to THE ARAB STREET Radio & Podcast broadcast from Chicago through 690 AM WNZK Radio in Detroit Michigan and live online … Friday Jan. 18, 2019
The topic this morning: Do you support or oppose the rumored two-state plan being readied by President @RealDonaldTrump? He is expected to unveil a peace plan to give Palestinians 90 percent of the West Bank to form a State with a sharing of East Jerusalem, although the Old City and the sites holy to Christians, Muslims and Jews would be managed by Israel in cooperation with the Palestine State. The rumored plan would also allow Israel to annex its major settlements, providing land swaps with the Palestinians for the settlement lands lost.
Do you support this plan? If you don’t support this plan, what is your alternative?

I often take my life experiences and offer them in an entertaining way to readers, and I take on the toughest topics like the Israel-Palestine conflict and don't pull any punches about what I feel is fair. But, my priority is always about writing the good story."
