The screenshot shows three boys, the middle one with a keffiyeh (Arab headdress) around his neck and his hand raised, making a "V" for victory.


Boy, Adham Ali Al-Amleh:

"A message from the children of Palestine to the leader of the Palestinian people:

Your Honor President Mahmoud Abbas, may Allah protect him

Allow us, the children of Palestine and all of the Palestinian people, to bless you, Your Honor the President. As you stand now at the UN, we say to you: Raise your head and voice on high before the entire world, on behalf of the children of Palestine and all of the Palestinian people. Tell them that we reject the deal of the century, Trump's deal, which is a deal that the children of Palestine call: 'the deal of shame and humiliation.' Say to them, Mr. President: 'How can we allow one who doesn't own the land of Palestine to grant it to one who has no right [to it]?’ And say to them, Mr. President, that Trump's deal is rejected from the old to the young of the Palestinian people. Mr. President, all of the children of Palestine and all of the Palestinian people are standing now in the streets, roads, houses, and everywhere – standing behind you, receiving you with joy, and saying to you: 'O mountain, a wind will not move you.' May Allah make your path successful with all of the best for your homeland and your people.

From the children of Palestine, Adham Al-Amleh. Peace upon you, Allah's mercy and His blessings."

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.
