Exclusive: Trump Mid East peace plan’s release – not before second half of 2019

Both President Donald Trump’s adviser Jared Kushner and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu avoided a date when they said the US peace plan would be presented “after Israel’s election.” They spoke in a closed meeting at last week’s Warsaw Peace and Security conference. Kushner presented some general outlines of the plan, saying that it would call for concessions from both sides. Netanyahu responded by saying: “We’ll wait and see what the final plan will look like. It will be presented after the Israeli elections – as you can imagine, that takes up a little bit of my time now. I don’t think that any of us should reject the plan and reject this initiative by the American administration before it’s even presented.”
The prime minister went on to say: “If we make progress and indeed a formal peace with the Palestinians, it would help us enormously in the Arab world and I would say with parts of the Muslim world, but I think it’s equally true that the normalization of relations with the Arab world also helps achieve peace with the Palestinians, and I’m happy to say that there’s progress on that.”

Netanyahu had a strong interest in these comments being released to the public on two grounds:

  1. Reporting on the lively campaign for the April 9 general election has accentuated “the right wing” proclivities of the prime minister and his Likud party. He feels that his efforts to attain a broader peace with the Arab world are neglected and wants to bring this issue back to center stage.
  2. Netanyahu also sought to pre-empt any attempt by his newest rival Benny Gantz’s Hosen L’Yisrael party from running off with the Israeli-Palestinian issue. He is making sure that he, and not Gantz, is Trump’s chosen partner for his “Deal of the Century.”

One commentator maintained on Sunday, Feb. 17, that the Likud leader aimed his arrows at Education Naftali Bennett and the New Right party, which he co-founded and which is campaigning on the premise that no other party is capable of blocking the Trump peace plan.

Amos Yadlin, head of the Israeli Strategic Institute think tank and former military intelligence chief, argued that by releasing the US peace plan after the election, Washington would avert the formation of a Likud-led government coalition with right-wing Bennett and lead Netanyahu to team up with Benny Gantz instead.
All this rhetoric is based on a misapprehension of the Trump administration’s intention.   DEBKAfile’s exclusive sources report that the White House does not intend its peace plan to see the light of day before the end of summer. By then, the next Israeli government should be in place and ready to deal with it. US officials calculate that the legal cases awaiting the prime minister could mire cabinet negotiations in interminable delays. The uncertain security situation also needs to be factored into to the White House’s timeline at a time that Israel’s southern and northern fronts, either or both, may be on the verge of outright hostilities.

    Any peace plan has to be made in Israel, not by a nation 9000 km away, which does not know
    what it is to sleep in a bunker since 71 years… !

      What if the peace plan was known about 2,500 years ago, and revealed to the prophet Daniel by the angel Gabriel as “a covenant among many”?

      Why does Israel still reject all that has been foretold by the prophets of I AM THAT I AM?

          Piece of sht plan , that is what they were talking about ; They need a plan that removes USA from all the ME , and let everyone in ME for a change to sit together and work things out ;
          That would be a plan that everyone should vote for ;
          The rest is irrelevant

            Ha! Muslims can’t even get along with Muslims, so how are Muslims supposed to get along with Infidels???

            Muslims, get your own house in order first.

          It’s just sort of funny that a comment like that is coming from someone who feels like calling him/her self “Anonymous”……………………….wonder why?

        When you shall see the abomination of desolation spoken of by Daniel the prophet… Those of you who are in Yehudah, flee into the mountains. Because then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, which will precede the arrival of Yehoshua to restore the KINGDOM to Y’srael.

        Dan 12:9-12 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end. (10) Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. (11) And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. (12) Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.

        Oh look! You can count the days to His coming!!! However, we are told, that the Father is going to cut short the days so that He can SAVE A REMNANT OF HIS PEOPLE! HalleluYah!

        YesheYahu 65:8

        @ “ItIsWritten”,

        Read those last capitalized 5 words very carefully.
        It’s not the Israelis who are rejecting “all that has been foretold by the Prophets” (as you put it)……………..just look around in the Middle East and Europe.

    First, try to get the Arabs, to start honoring the Oslo Accords.
    Second, when are the Arabs going to honor the disengagement from Lebanon?
    Third, when are the Gazans going to stop rioting? We already surrendered Gaza?

      When are Arabs/Muslims going to stop killing Arabs/Muslims?

      Arabs/Muslims have to make Peace among themselves before Arabs/Muslims can make Peace with Infidels.

        Arab/muslims cannot make peace with the infidels, . . . because in fact, . . . THEY are the infidels. Not a righteous, honest, loving, caring or peaceful soul in the whole bunch of them.

      Tell you what – let Israel start honoring the Oslo Accords, and return Area C to Palestinian control, as it legally promised, and I’m sure what you ask can be arranged. Are you willing to do that? … So why did you start kvetching in the first place about keeping promises? Since when did Israel do that?

    It is saddening that Israel has to dance to Trumps and Pences tune, nobody likes them and its makes to look bad, However Israel must prepare for when trump is longer in power and a Democratic president because if that happens everything the Trumps government put in place will be torn down as well as people and those who worked with it, YOU WATCH!!!

    The future of America is BDS, and the future of Israel is BDS, so the future of Palestine is 1P1V1S, and everyone will have a vote and be free from the Sea to the River and back again

    Just look at ALL the 2020 US Presidential candidates and see the future they are seeing, look at all the US college campuses and look at huge tsunami of young ethnic Jewish Millennials who despise Kahanism

    Netanyahu is the leader of the Kahanists (aka the ‘Kahanist ultranationalists’, the Likud, the New Right, Shas, UTJ, Kach, etc) and Kahanism is ALREADY illegal in the US and Israel, which is why the Israeli censors forbid the use of the term ‘Kahanism’ by Israeli writers. Israel would have to lock it’s Kahanists up if they let the Israelis use the term ‘Kahanism’

      ‘The Max Boot-Pence Plan’ is just Boot’s rehash of the ‘Wolfowitz-Dubya Plan’ – same Neocon and same useful puttyhead freier

      You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time (Pence and Dubya), but you cannot fool all the people all the time
