No to Oslo II. The US should show its cards.

Reportedly, the Deal of the Century is finished. The US rightwing allies of Israel have formulated a Peace Plan that should bring peace to the Middle East — but it won’t, as I have explained earlier.

Why in the world needs publication be held over until after the elections in Israel? And why does none of the Israeli political parties demand that we see it before?

There are two possibilities.

  • If it asks too many concessions of Israel again (which we can assume because Kusher talked about “reasonableness” which is code for: both give up which in practice means for decades already that Israel is forced to give in and the Arab-Palestinian leadership not) which would be dangerous and we saw it before the elections, the Right would get many more votes.
  • If it seems to give a realistic base for peace (which will be false because you can’t build peace here unless the local centuries-old hatred against Jews is dealt with) and we saw it before the elections, the Left would win dramatically because Israelis have proven to be so gullible and naive.

In other words, we don’t get to see the Peace Plan because either it asks fatal concessions of Israel or it gives false hope. In both cases, the Right should be able to show its true colors and profit from it in the elections.

Before the elections, the AG should not give his legal opinion on cases against Bibi because that is meddling in the elections and we should vote on what we want from our politicians, not about our legal beliefs.

But the Peace plan we must see because not showing it is dishonest. We can vote but not know what the situation will be after the elections that our representatives must deal with? Unacceptable.

The Right must stop being a coward and demand that the Plan is made public now.

If Bibi will not demand the publication, any Israeli with some historic sense should take no chances and vote right of the Likud. Safety first.

About the Author
The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch Holocaust survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo and Rav Zev Leff. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Many people can't understand or like him because he has such a wide vision that he never fits any specialist's box. But that exactly what others love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
