Rep. Grijalva Statement on Trump-Kushner-Netanyahu Annexation Plan

WASHINGTON— Today, President Trump stood alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and announced his long-awaited ‘peace plan’ between Israel and Palestine. After the announcement, Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva issued the following statement:   

“This ‘Deal of the Century’ is nothing more than a hand-out to Netanyahu and the far-right Israeli settler movement that will result in the mass annexation of Palestinian land and create an impasse for any future good-faith negotiations. This directly contrasts with a recently passed House resolution that rejected annexation attempts and expanded settlements while reaffirming support for a true two-state solution that benefits both sides.

“Trump has proven himself a biased arbiter in this process from the very beginning when he moved the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, significantly downgraded the services at the U.S. Consulate for Palestinians, and cut all aid to Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. After these actions, it’s absurd we’re expected to trust an impeached President Trump and a recently indicted Prime Minister Netanyahu to implement a peace plan that is absent of any Palestinian input.

“This deal fails to represent the bipartisan foreign policy of the United States and will not achieve the long-lasting peace promised by the Trump Administration. Instead of a peace rooted in a personal political favor for an embattled political ally, the United States and international partners should pursue strong diplomacy that brings all voices to the table and creates a long-lasting, achievable solution for both the Israelis and the Palestinians.”
