In an ongoing American insistence on adopting Israeli positions and policies, Donald Trump’s international negotiations envoy, Jason Greenblatt, yesterday, have toured the borders of the Gaza Strip with Israeli military leaders. During his tour, Greenblatt launched a series of accusations and biased positions towards the occupation, which is responsible for the siege, closure, starvation and restrictions imposed on the lives of our people in the Gaza Strip. Greenblatt claimed that (Israel will announce projects and measures to Gaza at the donors’ meeting in Brussels).
Greenblatt’s claims did not prompt him to visit the Gaza Strip to see the real suffering caused by the occupation policies and the continued aggression on the Strip for years, as the adoption of the Israeli narrative prevents him from touring the occupied West Bank to learn more about the suffering of Palestinian citizens due to the settlements that steals their land, or witnessing the checkpoints in the occupied West Bank, which restricts the Palestinian citizens right of movement, in addition to all of forms of judization and repressive policies practiced against them.
Greenblatt and other officials in the Trump administration, carry bias convictions that make them and their administration incapable of acting as an honest “sponsor” of the peace process and negotiations, but turned into marketers and sponsors of the occupation, their narrative, and its expansionist policies
