Colonel Lang called it. As per somebody on Twitter, Soleimani's handwritten will reads: “My wife, I have chosen my burial place in the cemetery of the Martyrs of Kerman, Mahmoud knows it. I want my gravestone to be simple. Just write ‘Soldier Qassem Soleimani.’ No more titles and phrases.”
See the comment by catherine. The "plan" is pure gaslighting, a sham through and through. The document itself is more like a theatrical prop than anything produced by actual professsionals. If you were to look past the plan's central omission - that the two giant impediments to a productive Palestinian economy are the occupation and blockade - there is no "generous cash offer." It's just another neoliberal bait-and-switch: the presumptive $50 bil outlay would flow directly into the pockets of cronies and clients of MbS et al, and whatever entity succeeds the PA would be stuck with the bill - crushing debt for decades to come. As for the "Palestinian on the street," his future prospects would be about the same as that of South Asian laborers in UAE and Qatar. In any event, the whole thing is just a PR stunt, a sort of threadbare figleaf under which Israel can seize, and eventually annex, more land.
