Why is Trump's Middle East plan so divisive? I Start Here

The Trump administration and Israel say their offer to the Palestinians is the best one yet. In fact they say it could be the last one they’ll ever offer Palestine. But Palestinians say it’s a non-starter.
So how does US President Donald Trump’s Middle East plan stack up against the ones that have failed before? Will Palestine reconsider? And why now?

Start Here explains.

    Trump’s so – called Deal of the Century cannot be good, cannot be bad , is not divisive , it’s not something, it’s not anything…It’s nothing at all because it never existed at all so it shouldn’t be discussed at all.

    Gulf Arab states allying themselves with Israel is just disgusting. It really shows how far they are from the principles that they claim they uphold. I believe if they desire to become part of US’ sphere of influence they just have to give up their status as Islamic nations. Especially Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The fact that Mecca and Medina are under the control of such US – dependent nation is really sickening for me.

    Why didn’t you include the 2 intifadas in the “highlights” section?

  • IseeJesuseverywhere says:

    I have a plan. Both of their religions are wrong. I have endless, indisputable, undeniable proof on my channel. Jesus Christ’s enlightenment is true. We see him like the light from lightning that lights up everything (omnipresent), when we obey him (see the promise John 14). I have seen his face (eyes nose mouth and beard) in every visible thing for over 18 years and I prove it. Let people be one!

    The account omits countless facts with the purpose of clearly intending to demonize the Israeli Jews. This is totally contrary to al Jazeera’s usual role as a journalist putting it firmly in the category of propagandist. This is one of al Jazeera’s darkest moments. The goal of the Arabs who started calling themselves Palestinians after 1967 is to ultimately destroy Israel and drive out or kill all of the Jews. They will accept only everything and in the end will get mothing. They rejected this plan before they even saw it.

    The other plans failed for only one reason, the Arabs have refused every single plan, while the Israelis accepted every single one of them. The truth is that this isn’t a point of rights but of religion,

  • Simon Safro says:

    What she narrates is not a fact but story that repeated many times without analyses of the real roots of all this and history of the conflict. First, whether Arabs were owners of this land before 20th century (only for a short period of time at the end of 7th century. Before that Judea was incorporated into Byzantium and Roman empire and before that it was Jewish land and state. Even when it was within the borders of Roman empire Judea was a self-governed province. Later Crusaders, Mameluks from Egypt, Ottoman Empire and British empire included it into their borders. Jews presented there all the times, however they were restricted to return from exile in the time of Mameluks and some periods of Ottoman empire. In other words they were denied to return to the land of their ancestors between 14 and 18 centuries. That is one of the reasons that by the beginning of 19th century the territory was almost empty, rare population. However one of Italian travellers from Venice describes Jerusalem as a city of predominantly Jewish population in 1698. The history of new Palestinian region we know better. When Ottoman empire paid attention on that forlorn part of the world they brought there hundreds of Arab families to build roads and cities (19th- beginning of 20th century). Also some Jews in Palestine were forcibly converted into Islam between 14th and 18th centuries. So some families in the villages have JEWISH ancestry not Arab. Starting from the end of 19th century Jews from European countries and North Africa, and other countries of Middle East returned to Palestine by religious or other reasons. It was beginning of repatriation. Whatever happened later is well-known facts – periodical conflicts between Arabs and Jews, new progressive Jewish communities – kibbutzs, integration of Jewish population, building Jewish motherland anew, repelling Arabs attacks for decades, making the country one of the most progressive in the world. At the same time Jordan kept pretty large territory of Western Palestine for 15 years. At that time nobody spoke about people called “Palestinians” – they were Arabs, nobody spoke about state of Palestine (though name of Palestine is not an Arabic word). The situation changed in 1960th. And the reasons of almost permanent hostility between tiny Jewish country Israel and 150000 million population of Arab countries in the region and the whole Muslim world was that Jews and Judaism created their state in the heart of Muslim world – nothing else. Not land, not racism (Jews and Arabs of the same color and same race) but RELIGION AND ENVY. Think about it. And also I want to remind that part of Jordan is also area of Palestine – why does not this kingdom offer its land for creating Arab of Palestine state?

    AIPAC President Betsy Berns Korn Is a Trojan HORSE….AIPAC is election MEDDLING …it is criminal to keep supporting THE AIPAC Zombies, that foreign illegal apartheid nation, Zionism is a foreign government’s ideology. anti Zionism is not hatred of Jewish/ Israeli people. it is a disagreement with people who put this Criminal ideology, that murders and steals for conquest by force. I am not anti-Semitic … I love Palestinians. they also speak a Semite language, too

    • Linda Steckel says:

      Israel is the nation state of Jewish people. It was built on Zionism, a religious ideology.
      Zion is another name for Jerusalem and Zionism is the love of Israel and settling the land.
      It is Jewish self determination in our ancestral homeland Israel.
      Anyone who denies us this is a anti semite.

    Please make a start here episode about the Philippines. How the leadership of our country is being haunted of our dictatorship past by the current antics of our present presidential administration. How our government blatantly ignored human rights and the outlandish infrastructure spending that leads to the citizens paying a bigger per capita international debt on top of what Marcos regime gave us. A plan that synchronizes with the so called ‘economic development’ of my country like Chile however the reality also gives a blurred and obstructed picture (and yes OUR GOVERNMENT WHETHER PAST OR PRESENT BUILDS PHYSICAL WALLS to cover our slum areas whether International delegates and dignitaries come into our country) of the true state of the quality of life of the Filipinos

    The thing I like is you provide us information from every angle.
    Still impatiently waiting for U.S and Taliban peace deal to give us details about.
    Thank You

  • sagbeye ikiriko says:

    it’s a perfect plan !!! the Palestinians can not make a deal because they have no decision-makers, no might, no vision and nothing to offer. So in the case, it is wise to just give them a deal (whether they like it or not) to save and help the young/future generation.

  • Rob Davidson says:

    Sandra, Islam was founded 700 CE… Jerusalem was named “David’s city” around 1000 BC, 1700 years before Islam was founded and there is extensive archaeological & Biblical evidence to show that Jerusalem and Israel had been inhabited by the Jews long before Islam even existed.
    In the 19th century, there were numerous historical accounts of Israel being a desolate waste land at the time… If you also study Biblical history from the Old Testament, the Jewish history is essentially completely routed in Israel.
    Islam was formed in Saudi Arabia, so I just do not understand how Islam has any claim on Israel or Jerusalem. Perhaps, this is something that can be explored in future editions of Start Here… I would love to hear your findings.

    We Israelis don’t need peace with the Palestinians. We live in relative peace thanks to the actions of our security forces. The Palestinians, on the other hand, are losing lands everyday that an agreement is not existent. “Justice” will not be reached, because it’s not a fairy tale. It’s real life.

      @Rachel l their isn’t anything complicated about this we live in the 21st century time to stop living In the past and start moving forward away from all the unnecessary conflict. Their is enough room on this planet for everyone but some people believe the planet is just for them could you tell me y is Israel still fighting Palestine in modern time it makes no sense and people like u make it worse instead of trying to make it better but one day all war mongers will come to realize it makes no sense.

    • Rachel l says:

      @samuel fitzpatrick WE DONT FIGHT THEM,ask any average israel and they will tell you that they want peace!we want peace we want to live side by side and flourish together!HOWEVER,WE proposed 7 peace proposals and they were al rejected and refused,they had the choice to make their own state,they break multiple ceasefires, initiate violent protests at our border,and use human shields as,and I quote,”tactic against occupation”!imagine of someone was threatening the existence of your country and trying to attack its citizens through tunnels?would you sit and whine or get up and defend yourself?we have every right to defend our citizens!war is absolutely horrible and yes civilian casualties happen on both sides,we want peace,we have no reason to be the agressors,our army is only used for the sole purpose of defense,our country has the size and population of new Jersey while the Arab world have 22 nations.I dont understand how people label us as warmongers when we havent started one war,initiated proposals and never broken ceasefires,its just absurd

    • samuel fitzpatrick says:

      @Rachel l look I get what u say and I agree to an extent but I still believe Israel can do more to promote peace in the region

Israel and Zionism with allies of U.S.. against all’s.. if u are believers

  • Nicholas Chong says:

    So Israel and Trump’s so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ to the Palestinians is essentially “we are not going to give back what we stole, although we guarantee we won’t steal more, and you get to call whatever you have left as a real country”. And “oh you better take this offer because that’s the only deal we will ever give you”.

  • Dr EJ Langseth says:

    I don’t understand WHY Islamic arguments FOR a separate Palestinian state have status when the land historically was given by YHWH to Jews long before there was Muhammad. First there was Abraham who took a concubine to have a son who went on to be the Palestinian heritage while Abraham —a Jew— had a son continuing the Jewish lineage in ISRAEL. Canaan was a loose knit multitheistic tribal people who were awakened to Allah ,, the same God of Abraham known centuries earlier before the Babylonians took the Jews into slavery. Yeshua (Jesus, of Abraham and King David’s Judaic lineage) was born 4BC. Muhammad ‘Allah’s Prophet’ of Abraham’s lineage, and author of the ‘Quoran’ was not historically recognized as the founder of Islam until many centuries later. So science, history and religion concur the lands belong to Israel.
