Has the deal of the century really failed? Who thwarted it?

The Palestinian president brags that he thwarted the Bahrain workshop, and accordingly, or before the workshop, the deal of the century, while his supporters boast this claim day and night. While we have repeatedly said that the PA’s position of rejecting the deal of the century and the Bahrain workshop is a good position, the question that arises here is: Has the deal of the century really failed? What is the actual deal?

Before this, I would like to note that I read the entire economic chapter of the deal, which was published by Trump’s Zionist staff member, Jason Greenblatt. I found a flood of bright and shiny promises that make the areas inhabited by Palestinians sound like Switzerland, but the PA would have no sovereignty over these areas.

When we talk about the areas populated by the Palestinians, we are only talking about less than ten per cent of historic Palestine’s area. According to what was published, these areas will be an integral part of the Israeli economic and security system. This is despite the fact that it will be autonomous and remove the burden of the security implications from the shoulders of the occupation resulting from its control over the Palestinian population.

If the issue is only about Trump’s plan, it is not going to be difficult in principle to say that it has failed........
