The Palestinian leadership must stop its anti-Israel propaganda and instead focus on creating a healthy society in which its people can flourish. Imagine the potential for economic growth if only the tension and conflict could be eliminated.

In the weeks ahead, look for apologists of Palestinian terrorism to show their true colors by rejecting this plan as a basis for renewed negotiations and instead continuing their tired tactic of slandering Israel with blood libels, false accusation and an endless stream of venom.

For a perfect case in point see the latest shared by U.S. Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib. After retweeting an accusation that Israelis murdered a Palestinian child and threw his body down a well, this lie was completely debunked when it was confirmed that the child drowned accidentally as a result of flooding. Rather than apologize, Rep. Tlaib instead issued a statement that she would “strive to hold myself to the highest standards for what I share.”

The American people deserve better from their representatives in Congress. And the Palestinian people deserve the type of leaders who will finally decide to forego their commitment to attacking Israel in favor of the route so clearly laid out for them in the Trump administration’s plan.
