Top Palestinian Officials, Business Professionals Slam Upcoming U.S. Workshop in Bahrain (VIDEO)
U.S. President Donald Trump’s Mideast team is busy garnering support for the White House’s economic “workshop” scheduled to be held in Manama, Bahrain, June 25-26.
Many believe the summit will usher in the first phase of the US’ Israeli-Palestinian peace plan – widely referred to as the “Deal of the Century” – through economic incentives to the Palestinians and other regional countries.
Yet West Bank officials and business leaders are boycotting the conference, insisting that their political aspirations come first.
The Media Line met some of these individuals in Ramallah to gauge the extent of their anger over President Trump’s initiative.
