LPR Strongly Recommends…

January 5, 2017 --

…that on taking office, President Donald J. Trump should announce plans to visit Israel and address its Knesset, in Jerusalem, on the 50th anniversary of the 1967 campaign in the Arab-Israel conflict, now about to enter its 69th year. LPR would point out to clicksters that the Palestinians, as such, were not a party to the agreements putting an end to the 1967 fighting.

LPR would encourage President Trump, in his Knesset speech, to point to the absurdity of “the principle of land for peace” – mentioned in paragraph 9 of the Invidious Security Council 2334— as suggesting that only one side can offer peace. If only one side can offer peace, doesn’t it follow that that side has been given the right of unilateral belligerency?

If there any principle at work, here, shouldn't it be expressed as the principle of land and peace for peace? For LPR, to speak of land for peace is to speak in terms demanding sufferance from the Jews, which, certainly, is an anti-Semitic demand.
