Palestinians were not always dependent on foreign aid

Trump threatens aid to Palestinians, appears to contradict himself on Jerusalem

(CNN)President Donald Trump raised the prospect Tuesday of cutting off aid to the Palestinian territories unless Palestinian leaders agree to resume negotiations to broker a peace deal with Israel.
He also appeared to contradict his previous statement that the US recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital would not impact the final status of Jerusalem in peace negotiations, claiming instead that "we have taken Jerusalem, the toughest part of the negotiation, off the table."
"The kind of displacement we are experiencing is not the kind
where the authority comes and takes people and puts them
in another place. What they do is a kind of destruction – it’s
displacement by destruction. They come and they destroy
everything. They destroy your life. They destroy your future. They
cut the water from you so, in a way, they want to kill you. They
come with massive power and destroy the small things we have,
they destroy everything. To us this is criminal aggression.

The state of Israel is premised upon the historical necessity
of ethnic cleansing and forced evictions. From the Nakba
(Palestinian “Catastrophe”) in 1948 when mandated
Palestine was destroyed and replaced with a new nation,
forced evictions have been the mechanism and modus
operandi of Israel’s nation-building project.
At the turn of the twentieth century the vast majority of
Palestinian people lived in Palestine, a land mass now
divided into the state of Israel and the Occupied Palestinian
Territories of the West Bank and Gaza Strip. At that time,
1.4 million Palestinian people lived in 1,300 towns and
villages across the whole country.
During the Nakba,
15,000 Palestinians were killed and 800,000 were driven
at gunpoint from their homes into the West Bank and Gaza
Strip, Jordan, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and other parts of the
world. Thousands more Palestinians were evicted forcibly
from their homes but remained within the new Israeli-
controlled 1948 territory. Israel destroyed 531 Palestinian
towns and villages, wiping them from the map.
