    "WHY WE LOVE YOU " Duke.

    So just imagine what would take place if the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem, basically cut the Palestinian Authority off at the knees and said, "Jerusalem is ours forever." There are 350,000 Palestinians there, and they basically have their national movement and sovereignty completely eradicated by that move.
    I think that the Trump administration is really going to have to think twice before doing this and what we might've seen is more red meat rhetoric for the right wing, Likudnik oligarchs who have been supporting the Trump administration through super PACs — Sheldon Adelson, Bernard Marcus, Paul Singer, and also Ron Lauder.
    PAUL JAY: I agree with you. The consequences, one would think, would be not good for US policy in the region, which is why every president since this act I mentioned in the introduction was passed has not done it. On the other hand, why the heck say it today and kind of raise the bar of the promise if there isn't a little bit more momentum behind it? And, of course, one of the main issues you mentioned, one of the main reasons why no president has made this move is because it would not only alienate but completely embarrass the Saudis. But is it possible that the convergence of interest between the Saudis and the Israelis now over Iran and various what people consider probable cooperation at the level of the intelligence agencies and otherwise military, is it possible the Saudis would not put up as big a fuss over it now? Do you think anything has changed on that?
    MAX BLUMENTHAL: I mean, probably not. I mean, we have to first assume competence on the part of Mohammed Bin Salman and the American Crown Prince Jared Kushner. Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority just refused a phone call from Jared Kushner, who's in charge of striking the ultimate deal. This has to do with the fact that the Trump administration attempted to close the PLO office, they've given them a 90-day extension in Washington, DC. They are taking a much harder line against the PA. And the Saudis and their partners in Abu Dhabi are deeply disturbed by developments in the Gaza Strip. They're not really negotiating or acting with a strong hand. They're acting very unilaterally towards the Palestinians. They've basically offered the ultimate plan via Jared Kushner as a kind of ultimatum. Then you hear this kind of destabilizing rhetoric from the Trump administration.
    Meanwhile, in the Gaza Strip you have new leadership under Yahya Sinwar, who is a figure who is much closer to the military wing of Hamas, the Al-Qassam Brigades than his predecessor, Ismail Haniyeh, who has resuscitated support from Iran to Hamas. Then, you have the reconciliation deal between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority and Hamas has agreed to allow the PA and a reconciliation government to control the borders of the Gaza Strip, which would be a major step for Hamas, which essentially won legislative elections in 2006 to rescind that much power, allow the PA to come in under the condition that it can maintain militarization. In other words, the Al-Qassam Brigades stay armed and maintain resistance against Israel. So, this complicates things further.
    Hamas has agreed to do this under Egyptian pressure. Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, the President of Egypt, has said that he will open the Rafah Crossing, which would loosen the siege of the Gaza Strip, under the condition that Hamas accepts this reconciliation plan. Meanwhile, Mahmoud Abbas has refused to accept the reconciliation plan because he will not accept any continued militarization in the Gaza Strip. He wants the Al-Qassam Brigades abolished, as does the Saudis and the UAE. However, Abbas is willing to accept that Hamas has restarted its partnership with Iran, which his why he was summoned by the Saudis to Riyadh on November 22nd for an apparently stormy meeting with Mohammed Bin Salman.
    And so you take all these developments together, and it's pretty clear, along with the extreme right wing direction of Israel, that there's not going to be a plan, that none of this is going to work out. And then you look at what happening in Washington with the closure of the PLO embassy and a new ambassador in Washington, Zomlot, who is much more savvy than his predecessor, who's engaging with the Palestinian diaspora in a much more organic way. And the whole two-state solution status quo has been blown up, but the Trump administration and the Saudis really have no latitude right now to act in any concrete way with regard to the Palestinian issue.
