A few weeks ago, Mahmoud Abbas was photographed holding up this graphic, while whining about the just-released Trump Peace Plan:
I pointed out at the time how this graphic was a double-lie: it contained the notorious ‘maps that lie’ but also the right-most map supposedly of ‘Trump’s Projected Plan’ did not show that at all.
Yesterday at the UN, Abbas corrected the second lie:
Perhaps one of his henchmen – or even Abbas himself – noticed my post and advised Abbas to make this correction (since it was an obvious lie for anyone acquainted with the plan). Alas, Abbas and Fatah still do most of the other vile things I point out on this blog – like pay-for-slay and disseminating antisemitism and terror support – so I am not entirely sure I wield that much influence!
Tellingly, although Abbas still uses the ‘maps that lie’, he does not include the 2000 peace proposal map, instead jumping straight from 1967 to present day. That is clearly because of what I surmised last time – the Trump peace plan actually expands the area of palestinian Arab rule from what was offered in 2000. He does, however, include a new map, the 1937 Peel Commission recommendation.
