U.S. President Donald Trump unveiled his Middle East peace plan, dubbed the "Deal of the Century," last week. He believes that he can broker peace between Israel and the state of Palestine to solve long-standing problems in the region. That Trump endorsed a particularly one-sided deal, however, could backfire in the form of fresh violence and deepening chaos across the Middle East.
Here's the bottom line: Trump announced his Middle East peace plan alongside Israel's embattled prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who has been formally indicted on bribery charges back home. There were zero Palestinians around, which illustrated the one-sidedness of Trump's plan in an instant.
One-sided peace plans tend to be stillborn and give rise to deeper crises than those they intend to remedy. That the United Arab Emirates' ambassador, along with several Gulf diplomats, attended Trump's joint press conference with Netanyahu does not make the plan any more representative. After all, the Gulf states are not party to the dispute over Jerusalem nor do they enjoy any semblance of legitimacy in the Muslim world. Future generations will inherit nothing but shame as a result of their leaders' endorsement of this charade.
