Statement Supporting President Donald J. Trump's Peace to Prosperity Plan
A vision to improve the lives of Palestinian and Israeli people.
Washington, DC -- We at CURE, The Center for Urban Renewal and Education, commend President Trump for his leadership, courage, and vision in the Peace to Prosperity “deal of the century” plan that he has proposed to bring peace between Israel and the Palestinian people.
There is everything in this plan that can pave the way to both peace, where there never has been, and to bring unprecedented prosperity to both Israelis and the Palestinian people. This is the yardstick by which this plan should be measured: Does it provide a basis for bringing both peace and prosperity?
In our view at CURE, the answer is unequivocally yes. So, we give it an enthusiastic “thumbs up.” It disappoints us that the initial reaction from the Palestinian regime appears to be negative. We believe this is a grave error.
Former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once observed, “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.”
It is time to look at the children - Israeli and Palestinian - and arm them with knowledge, hope, and love - not hate, not ammunition.
“And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people; and they shall beat their sword into plowshares, and their swords into pruning hooks; nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore” (Isaiah 2:4)
Your foot-soldier for freedom,
