Dear Friends
Jordan as twin sister of Palestine and without natural resources survives on foreign donations, begging for US monetary support, and mercenary services to whomever needs it.
How do you envision a Palestinian state can survive: certainly wailing, complaining and begging cannot support a Palestinian state? Sympathy and support to Palestine cannot last forever. The international support will soon evaporate. Israel managed to ride the US horse. Arabs are not reliable sympathizers or supporters.

There is no real diplomatic or economic hope to solve the Palestinian-Israeli problem under the current Middle East Israeli-Arab circumstances. BUT President TRUMP expressed his intention to solve it against all obstacles. Let us hope that he can do it. HOWEVER, he will need tremendous American and Worldwide encouragement and support.
Several US administrations showed interest in solving the Palestinian-Israeli problem without success. Whether you like Trump or not, whether you support him or not, he is now the president of the United States of America. He is in the decision-maker seat.
Let us rally and unite the forces of “We the People all over the World” to encourage President TRUMP to translate our activism into a positive, peaceful constructive conclusion as the most logical equitable way: the American way
Please read and sign the petition. Ask your family members and friends to sign it. We may have a chance to succeed. This PETITION is not only for peace-loving Americans to sign but also for all peace-loving people from all over the world. Please circulate to family members and friends.

STOP, DEFEAT THE LIES
YES, YES, YES THERE IS A VALID, TESTED, TRIED and WORKABLE SOLUTION for the Israeli-Palestinian IMPASSE, REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS FALSELY ASSERTED and DECEPTIVELY PRPAGANDIZED

OpEdNews: 10 Reasons the US Should Stick With the Iran Nuclear Deal By Medea Benjamin
In the next 60 days, Congress could impose new sanctions that would scuttle the Iran deal or it could pass new legislation addressing issues that were never part of the original mandate, which would also effectively kill the agreement. Enough public pressure could keep the agreement intact.

OpEdNews: Why You Really Should Be Scared Sh*tless About Trump and Nuclear Weapons By David Corn
It is indeed worrisome that Trump seemed to adopt a simplistic and dangerous more-is-better approach to nuclear weapons. But what’s even more unsettling is that Trump has a history of making comments about nuclear weapons that both display his profound ignorance about this all-important subject and suggest he believes a nuclear conflict is inevitable and perhaps destined for the near future.

OpEdNews: More Responses to the Military Surgeon’s Letter. By Paul Craig Roberts
If the acoustic evidence is correct of bullets hitting the ground, then bullets were fired. Therefore, it is likely people were hit. Why then are what clearly seem to be crisis actors employed? Is it possible that the alert part of the population is being given counter-factual information in order to condition us to accept official stories despite unresolved contradictions?

From PALESTINE

OpEdNews: The Balfour Declaration Destroyed Palestine, Not the Palestinian People By Ramzy Baroud
The Balfour Declaration was equivalent to a decree calling for the annihilation of the Palestinian people. Not one Palestinian, anywhere, remained completely immune from the harm invited by Balfour and his government.

OpEdNews: Will The Palestinians Ever Play Their Cards Right? By Alon Ben-Meir
If Hamas wants to reconcile with the PA, it must work with Egypt to resolve the weapons problem, without which there will be neither a unity agreement with the PA nor a solution to the conflict with Israel. In this connection, the PA must also deploy its security forces into Gaza to take charge of the crossings into Israel to ease Israeli concerns and restrictions.
From Alon Ben-Meir Website    {APPAF provided Palestinians  with a way to to seek a solution built  on the successful model of the US. Will the wise up and consider it?}

OpEdNewsa: We Have Met the Enemy and He is Us By John Wight
The question is not over the rights or wrongs of the Second Amendment; the question is the culture of violence married to the near total lack of social cohesion that pervades in a country suffocating under the weight of its own nauseating hypocrisy. We have met the enemy and he is us.


OpEdNews: Some serious hyperventilating lately over Trump’s mental stability By Dave Lefcourt
There’s been some hyperventilating lately over Trump’s mental stability w/ Sen. Bob Corker R. Tenn. saying the White House is “an adult day care center” to which Pres. “tweet” replied Corker “didn’t have the guts” to run for reelection. Regarding Trump a group of 27 psychiatrists conclude, “the specific symptoms, the severity of the symptoms, an inability to accept facts, rage reactions…all these things are signs of danger.”


opednews; The Establishment is starting to reassert. The Trump overthrow may have started (VIDEO) By Egberto Willies
The shocker continues to fly. What does it say when the architect of your win believes you only stand a 30% chance of fulfilling your first term as President? Here is why I think that barring a sudden change, the countdown to an overthrow, a post-Trump, is on [doe s ne have a normal state of awareness?}


OpEdNews: How Gore, Kerry and Clinton Put Trump in the White House By Harvey Wasserman. Trump’s federal commission on “voter fraud,” headed by Kobach, with Blackwell by his side, is escalating the Jim Crow assault on our voter rolls. Easily hacked electronic voting machines guarantee flipped outcomes. The Electoral College still lets small red states deny the duly elected presidential candidates rightful access to the White House.

ICH: Sputnik and RT Under Investigation. Is it news or propaganda? And what about the First Amendment?
By Philip Giraldi

A well-educated and informed public is best equipped to practice democracy and to hold its representatives responsible and accountable to answer and protect its needs.
This newsletter provides what is missing in the US mainstream media and what the American public needs to learn about the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. We hope you never fail to make the connection between APPAF’s reported articles and the cause and effect of the Palestinian problem and the vicious Israeli occupation as its illegitimate heinous perpetrator
It follows the Admonitions of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson:
“Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people” – John Adams – Second US President
“Educate and inform the whole mass of the people… They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.” Thomas Jefferson

We also invite you to visit www.APPAF.org website, and send us your feedback.

Please don’t forget that Palestine is as much of an American problem as it is a Palestinian and an Israeli problem.
