SaveTheWest.com founder and president Ken Abramowitz recently criticized President Trump’s “Peace To Prosperity” plan, which is intended to bring about Middle East peace, here:

Ken’s Thought of the Week: The U.S. “Peace to Prosperity Plan” is premature

On July 5, 2019, Ken sent the following letter to the Wall St. Journal, addressing its article on the issue. The letter was unpublished, so we are posting it here:

Dear Editor:

“The Promise of Trump’s Mideast Plan” (7/2/19) article correctly highlighted the good logic behind the plan, as “it follows the Marshall Plan’s example of spurring private-sector growth.”  The related political aspects will follow in a separate plan shortly.

The big difference is that the Marshall Plan came after the unconditional surrender of Germany in World War ll.  As of today, both the Palestinian Authority in Judea-Samaria (West Bank) and Hamas in Gaza are calling repeatedly for the destruction of Israel and are targeting the Jewish state and its civilian population for violent attacks.

Therefore, the plan is unfortunately premature, as it would simply finance the ongoing, senseless war against Israel.
