[for NY Times]      -----

David Myers wisely points out that illiberal politics underlie land grabs by militarily-powerful countries. His examples include Israel gobbling-up the West Bank, India grabbing Kashmir, and Russia the Crimean Peninsula. But his analysis ignores that only in the Israel case is the land grab being done under cover of Trump’s “peace plan” that is not a “peace plan” at all because rather than seek compromise between the side, Trump’s plan follows the extreme Israeli position to take everything for Israel while humiliating the Palestinian population and leaving them crumbs that will still be under Israeli control. That approach might work in real estate, but it will not stop the Palestinian people from resisting Israeli control and seeking their freedom.
