"Shove it up your [ass]" - Fatah to Trump about peace deal

Palestinian poet Adnan Balawneh: "We'll redeem Palestine with blood, it's not a toy you can play with, and it's not your father’s inheritance, you idiot, so that you can divide it and give it as a gift, and nonchalantly hold your summit and summon the traitors to you. At whose expense do you flatter and placate Zionism, and sign, sell, and give [it] as a gift? Is it your land or did you find it? I’ll tell you something on my behalf, and my entire people says this: Listen to us, you worthless man, open your ears, this deal will never pass! This deal will never pass! This deal will never pass! 
Over our dead bodies, we won’t let it pass, and if you want to overstep my limit, Trump, we’ll blind you; and if you want war – we'll declare it and only Allah will be able to extinguish it. We'll drive your Israel crazy and turn it upside-down. Trump, gather up this deal quickly, fold it and roll it up, you idiot, put it in the center, and shove it up your ‘ass’.”

Posted text: "Poet Adnan Balawneh, a new [poem] 
2020 for [US President Donald] Trump

In the expression “shove it up your ‘ass’,” the poet used the word “tinak” in Arabic, which means “your mud” and rhymes with the word “tizak” meaning “your ass.”

The Trump peace plan – US President Donald Trump announced his Israel–Palestinian peace plan "Peace to Prosperity" – commonly known as “the deal of the century” - on Jan. 28, 2020. Main points of the plan: 1- Israeli sovereignty would be applied to the Jordan Valley and all Israeli towns and cities in the West Bank. 2- Jerusalem, including all its holy sites, would remain under Israeli sovereignty with accommodations made to enable access for Palestinians. 3- The remainder of the West Bank, the Gaza Strip, and part of what is currently Israeli land in the Negev, the Galilee, and Jerusalem - creating a territory almost equal in size to the West Bank and Gaza Strip - would form the Palestinian state, with its capital in neighborhoods in East Jerusalem that are outside of Israel's security wall. 4- The Palestinian state would be demilitarized, with Israel responsible for external security and controlling all airspace. 5- All Palestinian prisoners except murderers, and those who attempted or conspired to murder would be released. 6- Palestinians in refugee camps would be absorbed into their host countries and, subject to certain limitations, into the Palestinian state. 7- Before becoming a state, the Palestinians would have to carry out extensive reform of their laws and institutions, including implementing a new governing system; granting its people due process and basic human rights and freedoms; end all incitement to and incentivizing of terror; end all glorification of terror and martyrdom; disarm Hamas; and adopt a culture promoting peace. The goal of the plan is to create a Palestinian state beside Israel, living in peace and security. The implementation would be facilitated through extensive international investment.
