A ‘Marshall Plan’ for the Palestinian Authority won’t work

(July 7, 2022 / JNS) Mistaken political ideas are commonplace these days, and we cannot get the better of them if we don’t call them out directly. The particular idea I wish to address is a plan advanced by World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder.
The billionaire Lauder is, first and foremost, a businessman. We should not be surprised, then, if his involvement in financial matters significantly colors his worldview. In accordance with his business sensibilities, Lauder has proposed a ‘Marshall Plan’ for the Palestinian Authority.
