Israel rushes to capitalize on peace plan as Palestinians express anger

washingtonpost.com/world/middle_east/israel-rushes-to-capitalize-on-peace-plan-as-palestinians-express-anger/2020/01/29/09e57430-41fd-11ea-99c7-1dfd4241a2fe_story.html?outputType=amp

The Palestinian leadership united in declaring the plan a nonstarter — “a thousand no’s,” shouted Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas — although some neighboring Arab states seemed to allow for a few “maybes.”

Groups of protesters turned out only in parts of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip and in nearby Amman, Jordan. There were scenes of isolated rock-throwing and flaming posters of President Trump and Netanyahu, but no reported injuries.

While frustration and anger at the U.S. plan were rampant on Arab-language social media, it was much more energetic online than in the relatively limited street rallies.
