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 PROPAGANDIZED

Juan Cole: Trump on Syria Chem Attack: Putin responsible for supporting “Animal Assad”


Juan Cole: Psychopathocracy Matures: Trump asks why CIA did not Massacre family of Militant with Drone. By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment)


OpEdNews: The Truth About an Untethered Trump By Robert B. Reich. Trump untethered isn’t just a more petty, vindictive, and belligerent version of his former self. He’s also more willing to sacrifice American democracy to his own ends. Which makes him more dangerous than ever. From Robert Reich Blog


OpEdNews: Donald Trump Actually Thinks He’s Popular By John Nichols. Trump may experience temporary fluctuations in his approval ratings, but they are never great — or even all that good. In fact, when it comes to approval ratings, it certainly looks like Trump’s best days were back in November of 2016, when he was on the losing end of a 54-46 measure of popular sentiment. From The Nation. The president’s pattern of lying to himself–and to fellow Republicans–sustains bad policy and failed governance.


OpEdNews: From Skripal to Chemical Attack: What Accusation Is Next? By Paul Craig Roberts. Einstein said that the definition of insanity is to continue doing the same thing and expect different results. Isn’t this what the Russian government is doing when it continues to respond to false accusations and expects facts to have any bearing on the matter? From Paul Craig Roberts Website


OpEdNews: Lawyers To Petition DoJ Demanding 9/11 Grand Jury Investigation of WTCs 1, 2 and 7. By Andrew Kreig. A federal grand jury should investigate the collapse of the World Trade Center towers during the 9/11 attacks, according to a petition that an expert lawyers group plans to file on April 10 in New York City’s federal court. The 53-page petition and its 57 exhibits provide evidence that pre-installed explosives were used to destroy the three WTC buildings during the attack on Sept. 11, 2001.

OpEdNews: Memo to Trump: Release the JFK Files Now, If Only To Save Your Own Ass By Robert Durham


Common Dreams: The Media Never, Ever Gives Peace a Chance. Nowhere to be found was a pacifist: someone who opposes war, all war, no matter what. Nor were there any anti-interventionists: people who say Syria is not our business and should be left to sort out its own affairs. by Ted Rall           {Don’t kid yourself. Peace is never in the best hegemonic plans of Zionism and Israel. That is why they control MSM}

ShadowProof: UNAUTHORIZED DISCLOSURE—EPISODE 11: ISRAELI SNIPERS MOW DOWN PALESTINIANS, BUT IT’S ALL JUST ‘CLASHES’ TO MEDIA


OpEdNews: Snipers Shooting Unarmed People at 100 Meters Isn’t a “Clash” By Fair News. It’s predictable, that in coverage of Israel’s recent mass shootings in Gaza — which have killed over 30 Palestinians and injured more than 1,100–the word “clashes” is used to euphemize snipers in fortified positions firing on unarmed protesters 100 meters away. The term “clashes” permits them to do this in perpetuity, no matter how one-sided the violence becomes.
By Adam Johnson

JUAN Cole; Peace in Islam: Qur’an 73:10 on Patience as Tolerance By Juan Cole


OpEdNews: Salisbury Poisoning: The Questions That Won’t Go Away
By Mark John Maguire. Mark John Maguire argues that the UK Government’s highly improbable – and evidence-free – narrative concerning the “Salisbury poisoning” needs to be challenged if we are to establish 1) what kind of poisoning took place in Salisbury and 2) who – if anyone – was responsible for it. To date, the only victims appear to be 2 guinea pigs and cat, which were the victims of neglect and starvation by the authorities.


OpEdNews: Degeneracy and Fundamentalism of Western Media Control By Andre Vltchek. Lately, the West has gone clearly berserk. The more it is scared of losing control over the brains of billions of people in all corners of the world, the more aggressively it is screaming, kicking and making a fool of itself.


OpEdNews: Our Excellent Reasons for Being in Syria, clearly shown in a short interview
By Daniel Geery. Finally, a real fun video about Syria. A 100% prepared “journalist” does his damnedest to take down a Syrian representative. I’d say this sets the bar for responding to western journalists, directly answering their questions. It also shows just how well and what your taxes are doing to trash fellow humans.

byPhyllis Bennis

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.
