By Jonathan Cook Global Research, September 21, 2018 Washington’s decision to intensify swinging aid cuts to the Palestinians – the latest targets include cancer patients and peace groups – reveals more than a simple determination to strong-arm the Palestinian leadership to the negotiating table.  Under cover of a supposed peace effort, or “deal of the century”,… »»»
