The More I Hear About The Trump "Deal," The Less I Like It

The rationale behind the Trump "deal" is full of stereotypes and dangerous presumptions. It treats us all, Jews, Arabs, and other "minorities" as pawns not people. It promotes/proposes two apartheid states, which will only increase tensions and terrorism.

The Trump "Deal" requires a system of passage ways and roadworks in the mode of science fiction, not reality.

And the so called "sovereignty" Israel will be "permitted" to have over Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and the Jordan Valley would require a four, yes 4 year moratorium on building. That would cause major problems, since new houses are built in most places every year.

For more unpleasant details, I suggest reading Arlene Kushner's The Really Big Fly in The Ointment!!*

Ancient Shiloh

Women still come to Shiloh to pray, just like in Biblical Times
Americans and other foreigners are terribly chutzpadik telling the Jewish People where to live and build. Our documented history in places like Shiloh is more than ten times the existance of the USA.

Years ago, Netanyahu agreed to make a 10 month construction freeze in Yehuda and Shomron. I visited Yitzhar in the Shomron. All around were plots of land leveled and ready to begin construction. I was told that Netanyahu's definition of new construction was any plot that was not cleared. And before the 10 months started, he gave people time to clear enough plots of land to keep them busy for the next 10 months. It could be that this aspect of the freeze on construction was not announced publicly.
I know that 4 years is not 10 months. But is it possible that there is a similar system for the four years? And once there is peace, (yeah, right!) there should not be a problem with building.
If there really are Arabs in Yehuda and Shomron who want to prosper, then they might need a civil war to get rid of the terrorists. In which case, everything changes.

Nope, sorry. And this is much more serious. I heard Jared Kushner talking about how he'll be deciding etc.
