The plan presented was nothing more than a real-estate brochure, and its revelation in Bahrain a poorly attended affair. What Trump's team, led by his son-in-law Jared Kushner, referred to as the "opportunity of the century" was nothing more than a plan to normalize the occupation of Palestine.
For peace to prevail and prosperity to thrive, Israel must end its occupation and stop obstructing the national, political and human rights of the people of Palestine, including freedom and sovereign control over our own economy. This very message was repeatedly echoed, even by many of the participants in Manama.
But Manama was not about supporting the economy of a thriving, free and independent Palestinian State. It was about the perpetuation of Israel's occupation and colonial-settlement enterprise.
