CSUSB professor interviewed about Trump administration’s Middle East peace proposal
Press TV
Jan. 28, 2020

David Yaghoubian, CSUSB professor of history, was interviewed for a segment about the Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas rejecting “multiple approaches” by U.S. President Donald Trump to discuss a peace agreement with Israel. Abbas reportedly cited Trump’s “pro-Israel bias,” the news report said.

Trump unveiled his Middle East peace plan on Jan. 28, which would “give Israel most of what it has sought over decades of conflict while creating what he called a Palestinian state with limited sovereignty,” The New York Times reported.

Yaghoubian, in the interview about 4 minutes and 55 seconds into the segment, said the Trump plan violated  several UN resolutions and an article in the Geneva Convention “all explicitly prohibit the seizure of land taken by force, and especially the implantation of civilian population into those occupied territories.”
