The so-called ‘Deal of the Century’ has been released – US President Donald Trump’s road map to peace for Israelis and Palestinians. Peace to Prosperity, as it’s called, has been widely criticised as one-sided and, to those campaigning for self-determination for the Palestinian people – no deal at all.
Dr Harry Hagopian is our regular studio guest for Middle East Analysis. Harry cut his political teeth working for peace in the region. He was a second track negotiator during the Oslo process in the early 1990s and, like many, has long hoped for a peaceful solution that upholds the innate human dignity and rights of both Israelis and Palestinians.
But without offering Palestinians hope, is the Deal of the Century hope-less?
