The fact that the plan would be solid and could count on the support of the intended investors would certainly be smart.
Jared Kushner is an egg, an egg that has never performed anything for business, and as an entrepreneur may have made even more debts than his father-in-law, wife and brother-in-law.It is not a great thinker, and a diplomat of nothing.
But he has seen well that prosperity is the first to be needed in the Palestinian territories.The fact that the Palestinians do not see it itself is because they are still in the grip of the extremists who only respond to the hopelessness in which the people are located.
‘, ‘ The plan builds on the politics of Netanyahu.It encourages and facilitates the economy of the Palestinians, partly by making them work in Israel, partly through indirect support. The Palestinian economy leans heavily on the Israeli. And no one has watched it, but in fact Israel and the Palestinian territories form a currency union, the latter being by far the smallest party and having no influence whatsoever. The Palestinian Authority therefore has little freedom of movement for economic development. The Shekel is a strong currency because Israel is pursuing a strict monetary policy and has legally contained budgetary deficits and sovereign debt.
This dependence will not diminish by the plan, on the contrary.The Palestinians need Israel harder than the other way around. The surrounding countries are too weak to take the place of Israel as an economical partner. Syria is in ruins, Jordan is weak and Egypt has already struggled enough to keep its own 80 million souls on the bone. The Gulf states are soulless money machines that can help at most with some starting capital. To support a solid state, they are too unreliable. The Palestinians have put their cards in part in Turkey, but they also have limited advantages.
Despite all the negative rhetoric from Ramallah, the PA is having a dilemma, because she knows that many of his citizens bring a lot of income-and thus taxes-from Israel.Nevertheless, Trump’s outstretched hand is turned off because it is known that there is no sanction. Indeed, Israel will continue to admit the cheap Palestinian labour force and support the economy privately.
This does not mean that the rejection is largely motivated by typical Arab pride.The Americans have no understanding of that. On the other hand, Israeli leaders know how to deal with this, which is why there is a lot going on under the radar: trade, energy and water supply, and labour migration. They are parts of a silent, gradual policy of normalization rather than the Trumpian pats-boem diplomacy.
The insolubility of the conflict has long since been enshrined in Israel.We know (yes, I live here) that the Palestinians hate us deeply and that there is little to do about it. The reasoning is: we make peace in our own country and put a fence around it to keep it in this way.
The farther away one lives, the bigger one still seems to be hoping for ‘ real ‘ peace.
