Have you heard the tragic news? Jason Greenblatt, the architect of Trump’s Middle East peace plan, is leaving the administration. As you can imagine, Trump’s real estate lawyer was incredibly successful in leading Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts. He was great for many reasons, including supporting Israel’s occupation, and claiming that Israeli settlements built on stolen Palestinian land weren’t an obstacle to peace. But what was his biggest accomplishment in this role? The deal he helped devise was “ultimate” (know anyone else who worked on ultimate deals? Neither do we). And let’s not forget his sense of humor: He invited Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi over the U.S., and then his administration denied her a visa. Isn’t he hilarious? It’s hard to imagine someone more suited to lead Trump’s futile efforts to try and force Palestinians to surrender their rights under the guise of “peace,” but when you look at the clown lineup this administration has been able to assemble, we have no doubt they’ll find someone almost as perfect as Greenblatt.
