Report: Trump To Introduce Mideast Peace Plan At ‎UN General Assembly

3

President Donald Trump plans to introduce his ‎Middle East peace plan, dubbed the “deal of the ‎century,” during the U.N. General Assembly meeting ‎in New York next month, the Palestinian daily Al-‎Quds reported on Monday.‎

The 73rd General Assembly session will be held from ‎Sept. 18 to Oct. 5, and will feature speeches from ‎prominent world leaders, including Trump, who is set ‎to address the assembly on Sept. 25. ‎

The United States has, in the past, warned that if ‎Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas ‎remains adamant in his refusal to engage the United States as ‎a mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, ‎Washington will introduce its regional peace plan ‎regardless of his reservations. ‎

Abbas has been shunning the U.S.’s peace efforts ‎since Trump’s Dec. 6 recognition of Jerusalem as ‎Israel’s capital and the subsequent move of the U.S. ‎Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and ‎has accused the Trump administration of being ‎‎“grossly biased” in Israel’s favor. ‎

According to the report, U.S. Special Representative ‎for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt, ‎senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, U.S. ‎Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley and ‎‎U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, who have ‎been working on the plan since early 2017, seek to ‎introduce it under the “most optimal conditions” and ‎the General Assembly is seen that the best venue to ‎do so. ‎

Last week, the four envoys released a joint ‎statement on Twitter acknowledging that “no one will ‎be fully pleased” with the much-anticipated ‎Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.‎

‎“No one will be fully pleased with our proposal, but ‎that’s the way it must be if real peace is to be ‎achieved. Peace can only succeed if it is based on ‎realities,” the statement said.‎

Al-Quds quoted an unnamed American official as ‎saying that Trump has been keeping the details of ‎the plan close to the vest as he prefers to outline ‎it in full at the world leaders’ meeting.‎

The source said Trump believed that if his plan ‎for Middle East peace were to fail, no other U.S. plan ‎would be able to resolve the decades-long regional conflict.‎

The official stressed that it ‎would be up to the Israelis and Palestinians to ‎accept or reject the plan.. JNS.ORG

  1. There won’t be peace anyway unless every street closes shabbos,tattoo shops are shut down,gay parades discontinued and made illegal,pork stores shut, and every jewish child gets a yeshiva education throughout Israel.

    • If secular Israel believe that the Jews were “awarded” the “State of Israel” by the UN or US and not because the Torah said so and indeed they act like other non-Jewish countries, like goyim (or even worse), instead of following the Torah, what right do they have to complain about Trump’s resolution he said during a rally in West Virginia on Tuesday: “Israel will have to pay a ‘high price’ in peace talks”?
