Trump’s Middle East “peace plan” is a plan for apartheid. Journalists need to recognize that.

Trump’s long-awaited Middle East “peace plan” gives Israel sovereignty over large areas of the occupied West Bank, control over all of Jerusalem and all illegal settlements. Many media outlets have referred to Trump’s agenda — which was drafted by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner without any consultation of Palestinians — as a “peace plan,” but Intercept columnist Mehdi Hasan says journalists need to scrap the terms they’ve long been using to describe the Israel-Palestine conflict and directly ask Democratic presidential candidates not if they are in favor of a two-state solution in the region, but “if they support apartheid or not.” Trump’s foreign policy has “forced people to basically take off the blinkers and recognize this for what it is. The conflict is no longer Israel versus Palestine, but it is apartheid.”
