It’s all Trump’s fault. Or so says Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).
The liberal senator blasted the President yesterday for moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. Trump’s policies impede Mideast peace, Feinstein charged in a USA Today op-ed. She even blamed Trump for Palestinian terror, saying he “incited violence” by recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Sen. Feinstein also scolded President Trump for his “heartless” policies–a reference to “slashed humanitarian assistance” to Palestinians. But there is a reason for the cuts.
Two weeks after Trump’s tweet, the U.S. cut its donation to the huge UN agency serving Palestinian refugees—withholding $110 million it planned or pledged to give to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). UNRWA, by the way, is a notoriously pro-Palestinian UN agency which fuels hatred toward Israel.
After spending billions over decades in a failed attempt to solve the Palestinian refugee crisis and achieve Mideast peace, Trump decided it was time for change.
Feinstein also called on the President to endorse the so-called “two-state solution,” which means Israel and “Palestine” living together side-by-side in peace.
But there’s a problem with the two-state solution:
It runs counter to God’s plan for His people, the Jews, to whom He gave, as He told Abraham, “the whole land of Canaan . . . as an everlasting possession to you and your descendants after you” (Gen 17:8).
It’s also a geo-political solution that’s been tried and failed . . . multiple times.

I explain why this failed approach is a non-starter in my new booklet, Why the Two-State Solution Won’t Work . . . But What Could. This timely look at the Arab-Israeli conflict highlights key factors blocking peace in the Middle East. And it points to a possible solution.
Why the Two-State Solution Won’t Work . . . But What Could, shows you
- Why every attempt since 1937 to swap land for peace between Jews and Arabs has proven fruitless, even catastrophic
- Why Palestinian leaders reject peace, even when offered almost everything they ask for
- What David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, considered the ultimate basis for the Jewish people’s claim to their ancient homeland
- What Ben-Gurion said about “land for peace” as a pathway to resolving the Israeli/Palestinian conflict
- What God Himself says about giving up His land to others
- The surprising interactions between an African man of God and two recent Israeli prime ministers. The preacher warned them not to swap “land for peace.” They did and you’ll be intrigued by what followed.
