Trump postpones his Israel-Palestinian peace plan indefinitely

On Wednesday, March 14, President Donald Trump decided to take the plan off his immediate agenda. There was no formal announcement. Trump briefed his special Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt to pass the word round among officials from the Middle East who were attending a conference at the White House on the Gaza Strip’s problems. Asked when Trump would revive the plan, Greenblatt replied: Not for a year or two.
The motives behind Trump’s decision, first revealed now on this site, are explained in their  broad, regional context in the coming issue of DEBKA Weekly (for subscribers) out on Friday, March 16. To subscribe, click here.

    very wise move, Mr. President. Concentrate on what you can accomplish.

    • Mar 16, 2018 @ 10:15 at 10:15

      Well no one wants to deal with him or his plan … Loner so far

      No point.
      Let others do it .

      Has anyone seen this reported anywhere besides Debka? I’m not finding it. Could this be part of the Presidents negotiating tactic?

    President Trump is “learning on the job” – but with remarkable results, especially in the M.E. convoluted situation – unlike his monkey predecessor, who was also a Jew-hater !

    • Mar 15, 2018 @ 17:43 at 17:43

      Amen but no need to call him a monkey and insult monkies

        Should have added “with apologies to monkeys” (and other animals), which I usually do…

    Let the PA beg the white house, unlike Obummer who chased them.

    What we hurd about the “peace plan”, it was surely going to be rejected by every-one. The only valid peace plan is that the so-called palestinians should go back east of the Jordan river, where they belong.

    • Mar 15, 2018 @ 21:55 at 21:55

      Nor do they belong east of the Jordan river; God gave that land to Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh.

      Joshua 18:7 …and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.

      Arabs belong in Arabia. That is their native land.

      • Mar 18, 2018 @ 1:13 at 1:13

        Arabia is only part of where the Arabs come from. We know about them because the Hejaz was the important part of Arabia, in the persons of the Sharif Hussein with his son’s Feisal, Abdullah et al, and the WW1 “Arab Revolt”, who were promised the moon by Lawrence (of Arabia). The Arabs who “captured” Jerusalem were actually nomads from the Eastern desert, unconnected to Hejaz, from Jordan and east, who drifted into Jerusalem over a period of years and when they got a leader quietly took it over. They had a rival caliphate to Mecca and fought a war against them and won. The Dome on Har Habayit was the result, as well as the Aksa Mosque, a converted \byzantine church.

      And it shall be, as the hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats, and he shall awaken, and his appetite is unsated, and as the thirsty man dreams, and behold he drinks, and he shall awaken and behold he is faint, and his soul yearns, so shall be the multitude of all the nations gathered on Mount Zion…

    Excellent! Now we can start work on Iran.

    President Trump has done a terrific job lately in regard to Israel. First Jerusalem, then the firing of Tillerson and replacing him Pompeo who is a great friend of Israel. What will come tomorrow. The Saudi Prince landing in Israel? The dumping of Obama’s ‘legacy’ deal? Who knows? The police ending their politically motivated investigation of Netanyahu and instead going after actual criminals?

    • Mar 16, 2018 @ 0:08 at 0:08

      …The only “legacy” Obama has ever left, is a huge surplus of bananas…

        @ Yosef,

        Not true. I’m told he is still a legend amongst the Chicago “down low” bathhouse gimps…

        • Mar 16, 2018 @ 18:11 at 18:11

          …So – he may share the excess bananas with them (including his own shriveled one) – and they do not even have to climb down from the trees – all on the ground !

          • Mar 18, 2018 @ 19:40 at 19:40

            For Jews to spout this vile racism is shocking to me. Did you forget what was done to you, just because of who you are?

  • Mar 15, 2018 @ 18:39 at 18:39

    The media has been attacking President Trump since before he got elected.
    But, the man certainly is getting a lot accomplished, in a short period of time.
    Maybe it is time to encourage him, and support him for a change.
    He might just turn out to be a great man, after all.

    • Mar 15, 2018 @ 19:23 at 19:23

      As of now Donald J. Trump is most decidedly not a Godly man. As is so often the case in the affairs of nations, American President Trump is God’s man for this time and place in history. Maybe yet a man for all seasons if he spends more time on Spiritual growth.

  • Mar 15, 2018 @ 20:20 at 20:20

    It is good news that Trump abandoned his half-baked plan. He is a dangerous amateur who probably can’t tell the difference between Desert Storm and Stormy Daniels.

  • Mar 15, 2018 @ 21:02 at 21:02

    Don’t you worry.

    The REAL explanation?

    We Jews don’t need to obfuscate and play games anymore.

    We don’t need no goy like Trump anymore confusing the issue and neutralizing our enemies’ vigor.

    WE are on the ascendance so we don’t need to cut deals with repugnant idiots any longer.

    WE are about to show for all the world to see that WE Jews have the hand firmly on the tiller.


    The messiah has come and it is US! (Not the stupid goyim of the US of A.)

      Yes, you shall have peace, though you walk in the imagination of your heart, to add drunkenness to thirst.

      (And shall be like a dream, a vision of [the] night, the multitude of all the nations assembled upon Ariel, and all those stationed around her and those who trap her, and those who besiege her.)

      And it shall be, as the hungry man dreams, and behold, he eats, and he shall awaken, and his appetite is unsated, and as the thirsty man dreams, and behold he drinks, and he shall awaken and behold he is faint, and his soul yearns, so shall be the multitude of all the nations gathered on Mount Zion.

      Stop and wonder; they became blind and they blinded. They were intoxicated but not from wine; they reeled but not from strong wine.

      For the Lord has poured upon you a spirit of deep sleep, and He has closed your eyes; the prophets and your heads who stargaze, He has covered.

      And the vision of everything has been to you like the words of a sealed book, which they give to one who can read, saying, “Now read this,” and he shall say, “I cannot, for it is sealed.”

      And if the book is given to one who cannot read, saying, “Now read this,” he shall say, “I cannot read.”

      And the Lord said: “Because this people has come near; with their mouth and with their lips they honor Me, but their heart they draw far away from Me, and their fear of Me has become a command of people, which has been taught.

      Therefore, I will continue to perform obscurity to this people, obscurity upon obscurity, and the wisdom of his wise men shall be lost, and the understanding of his geniuses shall be hidden.


      And those who suffered shall increase their joy in the Lord, and the impoverished people shall rejoice in the Holy One of Israel.

      For the tyrants have ended and the scornful have been destroyed, and all those eager to commit violence shall be cut off.


      For, when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, who shall hallow My name, and they shall hallow the Holy One of Jacob, and the God of Israel they shall revere.

      Messiah did not come , since if he would, it would be according to scripts, just before destruction of Israel ;
      If you and your types try to teach anybody something , they should start learning a thing or two themselves before stating some fantasies impromptu;.
      Tramp put it aside for the reason of his certain removal by any means available by your friendly Democrats and those ruling British pedos , Israel so fun off.
      Its good move for Israel , that should delay the war of wars and probable destruction of Israel.
      Maybe peace will be made , and this everyone will welcome , we hope….

      There are many like you ready to make lots of money on lands they stole from other Jews. I think President Trump needs to let the facts sink in before he throws his support behind yet another mafia.
      Don’t forget how our wise leaders demoted Mordecai. Fools will be fools.

  • Mar 15, 2018 @ 23:36 at 23:36

    Full of nazi and flying donkeys believers

    • Mar 16, 2018 @ 5:57 at 5:57

      Believing in flying donkeys is more sane and scientifically probable than believing in the fairy-tale-for-adults that is evolution.
      The Holy Bible proves itself as the word of God by the very fact that people are still arguing over the Arab-Israeli conflict 4,000 years after Ishmael and Isaac, exactly as laid out by the Bible.

        Well said, friend!

  • Mar 16, 2018 @ 1:49 at 1:49

    Every single president comes into office with a dream of “solving” MidEast peace. To Trump’s credit, he’s realized that it can’t be done and pulled out before expending precious political capital and years on it. Others who came before him were not as cunning, and actually thought they could solve a 1,400 year old clash of civilizations with a few thumbtacks moved around on a map.

    • Mar 16, 2018 @ 5:53 at 5:53

    “Time”………… solves many things some times take thousands of years .
    This is how to resist to a jew hater . Israel will wait till all the enemies will realize the land of Israel belong to the jews people . That happen hundred of century ago , animals with animal ambitions , who destroy a small nation for stupid ambition ; morons , liars , and filthy stories to solve their interest in power , wealth and their own wars .{crusades} .
    Hmm , it is not such thing perfect crimes done by the Romans , Crusades ,,Arabs etc. Time which is unfortunately thousands of years solves everything . And all this jews heightens will loose dramatically biting their own fingers .

  • Mar 16, 2018 @ 14:49 at 14:49

    The land of Israel , with its capital “Jerusalem ” was , Is , and going to stay for the jewish people . the land of the jewish People .

    Did anyone else see this coming? I mean, America keeping their nose out of other nations’ business? It is a first, for sure. My guess is that it won’t last long, and Trump and his weasel of a son-in-law will be forcing their two-state solution on Israel once again.

    • Mar 18, 2018 @ 0:31 at 0:31

      Don’t worry.Mr Trump wont do anything unless agreed by the ultra Zionist US envoys( Koshner,Greenblatt and Ambassador David Friedman). I think that Mr Trump agreed with some Arab leaders(Saudi,Emirati,Egyptian,and Mr Dahlan) to create new facts on the ground without making a big noise and official announcements.Most of the West Bank will be annexed to Israel and the rest rest will have a special administration connected either to Israel or Jordan. Gaza will become a separate entity that will be transformed to become the Middle East Singapore with the US and Western aid( New Marshall plan for Gaza). The Palestinian Authority and Hamas will disappear under the pressure of the new reality.
