Price of ‘Peace’: 20 F-35 stealth jets to bribe Israel?

The U.S. is desperately trying to revive the stalled Middle East peace talks, by enticing Israel to extend its construction moratorium in occupied Palestinian territories. Washington’s put 20 stealth fighter jets worth $3 billion on the table – and a pledge to fight any international resolutions against Israel. In exchange, it wants Israel to halt construction in the West Bank for three months, with a U.S. promise not to ask to prolong it further. Palestinians are criticizing the plan, saying the proposed freeze will not apply to East Jerusalem.

The U.S. is trying to revive the stalled Middle East peace talks, by enticing Israel to extend its construction moratorium in occupied Palestinian territories. Washington’s put 20 stealth fighter jets worth 3 billion dollars on the table – and a pledge to fight any international resolutions against Israel. In exchange, it wants the country to pause construction in the West Bank for three months, with a promise not to ask to prolong the freeze afterwards. Palestinians are criticizing the plan, pointing out it will NOT apply to East Jerusalem.
