Appeasement?
agreed that Saudi, UAE, Egypt, and Jordan aren't particularly pleasant countries, but the Trump administration has figured out that those 4 countries are major donors to the Palestinians and so have leverage. The plan seems to be to convince the Saudis etc and then have them convince the Palestinians
The are also major donors to other business dealings. So, they are compromised and can't be trusted.
Can't be trusted to do what? When sugar daddy pays almost all your bills, you can bet he will have strong opinion about your drinking habits. The same applies to Palestinians.

Bad when you're afraid of a mural.

You'r BS**ing again.

It's a statement and walls are the last media that protesters have access to. I am surprised that the excellent BBC Jeremy Bowen was allowed in.

I don't know. My territory is not occupied by any of these forces at the moment of writing..

Some of my judo buddies are soldiers. Judokas don't slap. I prefer armlocks and chokes. Judo is a sport, not real life.

This was a 17-year girl. I see no hope if this is how IDF treats such kids. 

Your line of argumentation is very weak. It is a variation of the True Scotsman Fallacy. aka Shifting the Goalposts.

To be precise, three days in jail. There was also the minor matter of driving her Rolls with an open bottle of Jack Daniels close on hand. Oh, and she didn't have a driver's license. But, I guess she's your kind of people...

indeed, it was zsa zsa gabor, I just told you.
Eddie Murphy had his own problems with the West Hollywood cops in 1997, when he was pulled over. Officially it was for giving someone a ride, but it sounds like "driving while black." No good deed goes unpunished it would seem.
On May 2, 1997, Murphy was stopped by police after having been observed picking up a transgender prostitute. The prostitute, Shalimar Seiuli, was arrested on an outstanding warrant for prostitution. Murphy was not arrested or charged and claimed he was just giving Seiuli a ride.

Missed cultural reference. Eddie Murphy was the Beverly Hills Cop (I, II, and III).

Some cops might like being slapped.
