    LIVE: Trump Announces Middle East Peace Plan Alongside Netanyahu

    On Monday, Trump described the plan as a “suggestion” for both sides.

    President Donald Trump will announce his Middle East peace plan alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    It will take place at 12 p.m. ET in the White House East Room.

    On Monday, Trump described the plan as a “suggestion” for both sides. He said the plan is what Palestinian leaders “should want,” but may not “want it initially.”

    Trump admitted they will not “do the deal” without those leaders, but remained optimistic.

    From The Wall Street Journal:

    For instance, the plan envisions Israeli sovereignty over Jerusalem, including areas Palestinians claim as the capital of a future independent state. The Palestinians would have control over some neighborhoods on outer parts of East Jerusalem and might control 70% to 80% of the West Bank. That would fall short of Palestinian demands, but the plan isn’t expected to rule out a Palestinian state.

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged that Israel will annex much of the Jordan Valley—a portion of the West Bank bordering the country of Jordan—in effect encircling any potential future Palestinian state.

    Trump administration officials have said Israelis and Palestinians won’t be forced to leave their homes as Israel expands its borders under the administration plan. Unlike past efforts, the Trump administration isn’t expected to seek compromises that would allow some Palestinians to return to land they or their families left after Israel’s creation or receive compensation for it.

    It won’t work. To rearrange an existing regime that works on a system of payoffs, you have to make sure that each person paid off comes off better in the new system. They’re now paid off in proportion to how much trouble they could otherwise cause, and if the payoff stops, their best option is to cause trouble. So they will.

    That the citizens would be better off has no effect. You have to make the offer better for the troublemakers.

    It’s why nation building always fails.

    The two-state plan of the British Mandate resulted in the creation of Israel and Jordan. The Jewish people were confined to the lands west of the Jordan River. The same should have been put into effect, Muslims to the east. I don’t know why they still put up with Palestinian intransigence. Jordan should have taken them in years ago.

    If the peace treaty mentions anything about a time-frame of 7 years, look for the Rapture to come soon.

    The offer shouldn’t be accepted by the Palestinians As it stands. If their state is not allowed to conduct foreign policy, it isn’t a state. But the broad details of the compromise look like a real chance at peace.
