Does Trump's 'deal of the century' make Middle East peace impossible? | The Bottom Line 4.5
UCNye-wNBqNL5ZzHSJj3l8Bg

Standing beside a grateful Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, US President Donald Trump unveiled his Middle East plan, which is referred to as the "Deal of the Century", on January 28.
The plan promises a better life for the Palestinians if they give up their hopes for freedom.
The Palestinians were not involved in the making of the 80-page brochure and were not invited to the launch party.
So, what are the prospects for Trump's "ultimate deal" for the Middle East?

Join Steve Clemons and his panel in a discussion of the timing and content of the plan.

Guests:

Nope it will not bring peace to the middle east but it will bring lots of money to def contractors and the weapon industry.

IT BRINGS THE OPPOSITE TO PEACE, IN FACT THIS DEAL IS A ZIONIST IDEA THAT IS DISRESPECTFUL FOR THE PALESTINIAN WRIGHT AND SOVEREIGNTY OVER THEIR LAND, IT'S AN ATTEMPT TO DISENFRANCHISE THE PALESTINIANS BY CREATING SUCH A STALMATE

So from the comments lets keep doing the same things we have always done and complain OR look at this deal and see if both parties can move on to peace?

USA has no interest in peace anywhere. They need war and conflict to support their economy.
