    Projects to be presented during US president’s trip include West Bank airport, Dead Sea hotels, power station and new city

    Trump, who has expressed his desire to seal “the ultimate deal” in an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement, has also voiced his support for “efforts to unlock the potential of the Palestinian economy,” which PA and US officials have discussed on a number of occasions since the US president came in to office in January.

    Among the requests presented by PA President Mahmoud Abbas’s entourage during a visit to Washington earlier this month were an airport in the West Bank, hotels on the the coast of the Dead Sea, a power station in the northern West Bank and a cement factory in Bethlehem.

    In talks with Trump and his advisers, PA officials outlined the extent of the unemployment problem in the West Bank, which they said must be urgently addressed by launching a series of large-scale projects that will bring thousands of Palestinians into the workforce.

    If they'd stop buying weapons to fire against Israel and also encourage their people to do something with their lives, they probably wouldn't need to beg.

    I hope and pray the Pres. says no because it's wrong to. .....besides, like we have any money anyway.

    I don't think President Trump trolls RF to catch my advice to him, but just in case: Don't give them a nickel, President Trump. :salute If we've got any spare change, give it all to Israel, our friends and God's people.

    He'll regret giving them money, if he does. They have a 'give-me, give-me' attitude and nothing to show for all that they have been given.

    Here's an economic package for the Palestinian Arabs: pay to resettle them on the Arabian coast, where they belong. Houses, a new town, they can replace some of the Pakistani workers that the Gulf states rely on. If they want to pick a fight, Iran is just across the Gulf.

    Note to "Palestinians" : President Trump is the President of the United States of America... not "Palestine."

    ETA: Nor is the American taxpayer your sugar daddy.
