Trump can’t solve Israel-Palestine conflict: Bolton

We have not seen Mr. Bolton in a while. Someone decided it was time to redeploy him.

… from  Press TV,  Teheran

… just after the bomb went off

[ Editor’s Note: Left out of the Press TV version below is that Bolton was in Israel to receive the Guardian of Zion Award from the Ingeborg Rennert Center for Jerusalem Studies at the King David Hotel, the one that Menachem Begin’s Irgun terrorists blew up, killing Jews and Arabs along with their British targets.

This reeks of staging to me, coming so soon after Trump completed his trip, and Bolton’s message would not get drown out in the Donald’s grand tour glitz. Bolton is smart enough to knew that Netanyahu and the Likuds sure as hell don’t want peace as the current Israeli power structure would be changed forever.

As we have here in the US, Israel has a class of people who live off the “un-peace” as it is a huge case funnel for everything from endless US taxpayer subsidies for both military and non-military things that would be gone with peace. Liberal Jews would then want more spent on social issues when Israel in high on the list of countries to have a high number living in poverty.

I won’t get into the viability for peace. Both sides seem to have leaders that don’t want it, with Abbas such a waste its a shame that the Palestinian people have not disposed of him. The man is so self-centered that he refuses to build any 2nd tier leadership behind him so that he has no competition.

If Abbas were to drop dead tomorrow, and he is in bad health by the way, the Palestinians will have a guaranteed weak new leader which will have the Zionists cheering as they watch the Pals chop each other up as they fight to get control over the graft in running their show.

I don’t see anyone giving the Palestinians anymore than they have. It would take a higher class of leadership than they obviously have, and their system does not seem to be manufacturing them, surely not under Abass’ tenure Jim W. Dean

Former US Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton says President Donald Trump will not be able to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict simply because the two-state solution is no longer “viable.”

“[Trump] is an optimistic man and can take a good shot at it, but I don’t think the conditions exist,” Bolton said in East Jerusalem al-Quds on Monday, according to Israeli media.

“I don’t think the two-state solution is viable anymore,” the former UN envoy added. “It’s not a question of personality or effort, it is just undoable.”

Bolton’s bold prediction came only days after Trump met Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and promised to broker a “peace” deal.

“I am committed to trying to achieve a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and I intend to do everything I can to help them achieve that goal,” Trump said after holding talks with Abbas in the West Bank city of Bethlehem.

Trump, who was on his maiden overseas trip, also discussed the possibility of a deal with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. After talking to Netanyahu, the US president welcomed what he called the Israeli premier’s “commitment to pursuing peace.”

“He’s working very hard at it – it’s not easy,” he said of Netanyahu. “I’ve heard it’s one of the toughest deals of all. But I have a feeling that we’re going to get there eventually. I hope.”

  1. There will be zero peace in the ME. Until the Israeli land grab is over, or somehow stopped the genocide, the Palestinian Holocaust, and the theft of Arab land will continue. Hey by the way has any one seen our $6 trillion. It’s missing they say. Thought i saw it walking off into the sunset. Are we paying interest on money stolen by who knows who. Just right it off, tell the Federal Reserve Inc. To look for it.

  2. Senseless waste of time writing anything about peace in Palestine. What is going on in Lebenon? Is anyone talking about that
    Israel is going to do to the Palestinians what the Europeans did to the indigenous America peoples, but better. The people of this world better wake up to the speed which chaos is moving at. There isn’t a safe place to hide. Why? Because of the money supply, the central banks, and Zions plan, and there is a plan, to create a 1 world gov’t with the Jews on top. Someone tell me I’m wrong. I’ll listen to logic. War create debt, massive debt. Ssk yourselff this question. Who gets all the interest we pay on our nation debt?

  3. There is an Arabic saying about leaders who do not provide any long range plans, it translates “let the great flood come after me.” For that matter all dictators, have a similar strategy for longevity, based on a power and talent vaccum created around them. They surround themves with those who are less competent and yes-men. With all the false praise and flatery, dictators are impressed to think they must possess expertise on all matters of statecraft. In addition, when a dire situation arises, the experts are not to be found due to attrition or for fear of coming forward only to be considered a threat. For this main reason, you see their is no greater plan for continuity put forth by the incompetant Arab leaders, to counter the plan for greater Israel.

    • At this time, the people have leaders like Abbas who would rather sit on the lap of satanic world power and get rewarded for behaving accordingly, only to compensate for the humiliation by creating this mirage that he is supreme lord over his people. I say to these people, all the rulers, you have been given the means to lift the condition of mankind and instead you chose to create more misery to enriched your insignificant selves. When the worms finish with your body, then you should ask yourselves, how significant are you, truly?

  4. Land theft is a relatively simple issue for most courts if they exist. The trouble here is there are no courts of proper jurisdiction with the force and power to deal with forcing Israel to comply with the laws it violates with impunity every day. The borders are well known. What force will compel both sides to comply with court orders? A military force is required to compel both sides, especially outlaw Israel, to comply with orders quickly with powers to arrest those in charge who dishonor court orders. Stiff fines must also be imposed. Millions of dollars a day. All U.S. aid must be stopped from both sides until they comply with court orders and UN resolutions. This situation is a no man’s land because there is no court of proper jurisdiction backed up with the military power to enforce the court orders. Imagine this happening in the U.S. today. The problem would have been solved long ago with the full power of the U.S. military brought down on both sides to enforce the orders. Trespassing is the most elementary of disputes for any court to resolve, But it requires a military force to deal with bullies like Israel who think they are above all laws.

  5. There can’t be peace because the chauvinistic, supremacist, ultra-zionists want it all for themselves at the expense of everyone else, in accordance with their delusional ideology as expressed in the Talmud. Peace could have been achieved decades ago, had Israel agreed to return to its pre-1967 borders as international law requires and recognize the Palestinian’s right to exist in Palestine.

    If Trump were serious, (and that’s a huuuge if) I can think of a few ways he could leverage Israel to accept these conditions. Hit them where it hurts 👊🏻 right in the foreign aid. Threaten their annual 3.7 billion dollar welfare package and remind them of the Symington amendment. Also, call off the she-wolf Nikki Haley at the UNSC/HRC and refuse to shield Israel from facing long overdue justice. Israel would write it off as flagrant “anti-semitism”, but eventually they would realize that they cannot survive without the US, so they had better live up to set expectations.

  6. With GW Bush, John Bolton was a Bomb-Bomb-Bomb-Iran kinda guy. Still is. That’s why Bibi likes him.
