Palestinian leader warns UN on Trump’s ‘Swiss cheese’ peace

UNITED NATIONS (HRNW) – Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Tuesday urged the UN Security Council to reject President Donald Trump s Middle East plan, saying it would splinter Palestinian lands and never bring lasting peace.

Brandishing a large map of a future Palestine as laid out by Trump, Abbas denounced it as a “Swiss cheese” deal that would give the Palestinians only a “fragmented state” without control of their airspace, territorial waters or East Jerusalem.

“Who among you would accept such a state?” Abbas asked, as he warned that Israel would create an “apartheid” situation if it moves ahead with annexation.
