Kushner says US peace plan very detailed, draws border. But no publication date

DEBKAfile: Although Jared Kushner says the US peace plan deals with all core issues of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, he offered no timeline for its presentation.
In an interview with Sky News in Arabic on Monday, Feb. 25, Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s adviser, said that he and Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt had “formulated practical and just solutions to the issue that will be relevant for 2019.
“The US peace plan is very detailed and focuses on drawing the border and resolving key issues,” he said. Washington also hopes to see “a reconciliation between the Palestinian leaderships in Gaza and the West Bank” and the Palestinians “united under one leadership.” Kushner went on to say: “The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been used for years to incite extremism. For years resistance to the nation of Israel has united the region, but now it is changing … We see that Iran is the greatest threat in the region.”

DEBKAfile notes: Kushner did not say clearly that the plan on which he and Greenblatt have been working for nearly two years is finished or ready for presentation.  According to our sources, some elements are still a work in progress. The US administration’s hope of bringing the Palestinians under one leadership – meaning reconciliation between the warring Fatah and Hamas factions in Ramallah and Gaza – is unrealistic. The Arab mediators who worked long and hard to bring this about have given up.

New Right party leader, Education Minister Naftali Bennett responded to Kushner interview by warning that a Palestinian state was in the offing and central Israel was in danger.  

Israeli media accounts of the Sky interview with Kushner omitted certain important points so as to bring his comments in line with the prevailing pre-election political atmosphere, DEBKAfile’s sources report. The main burden of his comments was that the Palestinian economy must be addressed – and a new economic infrastructure created – before making an approach to political solutions. The presidential adviser is in the course of a tour of Gulf capitals. His interview was intended to set the stage for his talks with their leaders.

    The Terrorstinians + Killerstinians will reject a country of their own because that is not what they want. They do want to destroy Israel and any Jewish and other presence in the region.

    If they have another “homeland” added to the 22 in the region, it will just become another Gaza or Islamic State.

    Israel is not responsible for those at war with them who want to wipe them out. The interlopers belong with their kind in the Arab world, no longer a thorn in the side of Israel. They need to be moved to their other homes in Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Lebanon, Qatar, Saudi, Yemen, etc.

    An agreement which forces enemies to live together is worse than the status quo. It is an invitation for further conflict, war and terror from people whose only specialty is terror and hate.

    These so-called ‘palestinians’ make up less than 0.5% of the muslim ummah. If this small little percentage can’t even get along (considering the wider ummah is tearing themselves apart), what chance would they ever have a effectively running a viable state. You cannot pull in muslims from different parts of the ummah, put them together rebrand as Palestinian and then expect them to function (it is unrealistic). There is more chance of the former Egyptians being part of Egypt again, the former Jordanians can go be part of Jordan again. Now that the war in Syria is dying down, those former Syrians can go be part of Syria once more and so on. A message to all those Chamberlains out there, do not expect Israel to be your Czechoslovakia. It did not appease the nazi’s and we got WWII, likewise it will not appease the sword of Islam and we do not want WWIII.

    We will not see an effective “Deal Of The Century” from the Trump Syndicate. We will see a document unable to fathom the clear warnings from on high; clear prohibitions against meddling with Israel, taking from Israel; dividing Israel…. To emphasize the seriousness of doing these tamperings with the Lord’s EVERLASTING COVENANT, the consequences of doing so are severe and final.

    Anyone looking to kill time on AF One, now in the air to Vietnam, suggest you find Bill Koenig among the accredited White House Press Corps, and ask him for insights into his book “EYE TO EYE”. Are you along for the ride, Mr. Kushner? This timely book is a chronicle on events concerning the Jew, Israel and the Biblical borders as described in Genesis and Chapter 1 of Joshua examples. Read and heed, Jared….

    America needs to hunker down and take due recompense for BDS and other meddling with Israel; better be prepared. The Methodists have long taken the side of the Palestinian johnny-come-latelys. Many in UMC leadership want to cherry-pick the Scripture to suit “Culture”. See the UMC now in division over Sodomy.

    The Jew-boys Kushner, Greenblatt and co. are going to “love Israel to death” –
    more effectively, than Hamas and Hezbollah together….

    Another great opportunity to test the biblical prophecies about Israel/Jerusalem. Momentous times for believers – and more egg on the face of the willfully ignorant.

    Any “peace plan” will likely require enforcement from without: Daniel’s “one-week covenant”?
    (Daniel 9:27)

    The thing is, we are so advanced along the finite timeline of world history that we can’t know which leader to trust; which leader is playing the world for a fool; which plan will be the path which leads to destruction.

    We do know that:
    – The Temple will be rebuilt soon
    – Israel will proclaim a “Messiah” soon
    – The “Messiah” proclaimed and accepted by Israel will stand in the Holy of Holies, revealing himself to be the Antichrist
    – The revealing of the Antichrist will trigger the time of “Jacob’s Trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7) and the Day of the Lord (Joel 1:15, 2:1, 2:11, 2:31)

    Please, my dear Jewish cousins, accept the Jewish Yeshuah as your *personal* Messiah. The book of Hebrews will reveal the truth about this Jewish Son of David better than any Christian could explain it.

      When the proper time comes, we’ll all get to see who ACTUALLY does it!

    Just to note: members of the “Carter Center” live very far away from Hamas and Islamic Jihad in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon and Iran and its proxies in Syria.
    I bet that the Carter Center never focuses on when was the last time something called an “election” was held in the territories controlled by the so-called “Palestinian Authority”.

    These ladies always end up dancing around their hand bags. The yanks haven’t learnt that you can’t just dictate to people what to do all the time. Kushner, a kid with no clue turns up and he’s suddenly the “all wise”. Give me a break.

    Man plans and G-D laughs. What makes America, think that the Arabs will accept this plan? Muslims are not impressed with money. They want a world wide Caliphate, starting with Israel. Every American President for 51 years had a plan and the Arabs never accepted any of them. Oslo, is a disaster for Jews. The Arabs don’t obey a single sentence.
