This letter refers to the news report ‘Trump to present long-delayed Middle East peace plan’ (Jan 24, 2020). It is a well-known fact that the brain behind Trump’s Middle East peace plan is his staunchly pro-Zionist son-in-law Jared Kushner. Add to that Trump’s own aversion to Palestinians and tilt towards Israel and you get: the closure of Palestinian diplomatic offices in Washington DC, the cancelation of all humanitarian aid to Palestine and what amounts to the acceptance of Israel’s claim on the whole of Jerusalem.

These occurrences make it abundantly clear that Trump’s ‘peace plan’ is a dog-whistle for aggressive pro-Israeli policies. No wonder Palestinians have already rejected this so-called peace plan.
