Deal of the Century: Jason Greenblatt, the Heart of the Deal
"Was one of the chief architects. I worked very closely with two good friends of mine. Jared Kushner president trump's son-in-law and senior adviser to president trump. As, well as our friend, ambassador David Friedman the US ambassador to Israel. And I would agree with you that it's an opportunity to the next generation, but I would say aides and opportunity for the next generation of everybody in the region, Israelis Palestinians and all of our countries that surround them. I think that people have come to the realization that the past peace efforts have failed. They are unlikely to succeed, and what we have presented is a very detailed very lengthy plan that could show everybody what the compromises are. That are necessary in order to achieve peace and I think that the younger generation in the region is ready for this I think that believe that the Palestinian people deserve something so much better than the half I think that if we succeed, if peace is achieved, everybody in the region can benefit from it tremendously now it's as if in anticipation of the Palestinian. Authority's rejection of the plan. You'd also consulted with Palestinian people on the ground. I guess ground groundswell is also the key to making peace. It's in the hearts of the people as well as the leadership. Absolutely first of all it was no secret test that the Palestinian Authority would likely reject the plan any plan frankly that we put out. When President Trump made his bold and courageous historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and several months later move the embassy, both in accordance with US law something that US law required since nineteen, ninety five. The Palestinian Authority cut ties to the administration. But they also began to trash. Talk the plan that they have not yet seen in in the months. Preceding the launch of the plan, they rejected the plan including using statements by their prime minister. Such as the plan should be born dead. It should be a stillborn something to that effect. That's not quite an exact quote, but that was the tone of the conversation about the plan, but what everybody should realizes it isn't just the leadership that is necessary to get on board. It is essential for people to get on board, and if the people are not with this plan whether Israeli or The plan has little chance to succeed. I also want to add. We have to remember that. Really are two leaderships for the Palestinians or at least one leadership in Ramallah and one so-called leadership in Gaza. Hamas, which was a terrorist organization funded by Iran, and that subjugates the nearly two million Palestinians that live in Gaza causes tremendous suffering to those Palestinians. is whether we like it or not. At some form of Palestinian leadership, so even if the leadership in Ramallah even if President Obama's were to engage the plant. One has to wonder and really talk about what happens to the Palestinians, in Gaza, our plan of course provides for that, but we can't get the people in Gaza in their their so called leadership on board than there is no effective way to implement the peace plan. Very few people talk about that. Make It seem as though it's simple. If president us, either condemns the plan or engages on the plan then. Then we know our next steps while that's a bit too simplistic. We must all figure out a way to handle and deal with the two million Palestinians who are suffering in Gaza.

Palestinian Leader Denounces Trump’s Mideast Plan at U.N.
"When the trump administration unveiled its Middle East peace plan the president of the Palestinian authority responded with quote a thousand nose at the UN security council today Mahmoud Abbas tried to show he was not alone in opposing comes plan which favors Israeli positions and tears Michele Kellerman has more holding up the map that the trump administration propose muck mood Abbas told the security council that it would leave a future Palestinian state fragmented without any real control over airspace land or sea Abbas spoke through an interpreter why did though that this is the state that they will give us yeah yeah like a Swiss cheese really the whole among you will accept according to a similar state and similar conditions Abbas's allies dropped plans to have the security council vote on a resolution condemning the plan a trump administration statement said it was a sign that the quote old way of doing things is over and that diplomats are ready to think outside the box rather than fall back on the calcified Palestinian position but most council members did criticize the US planned European diplomats said it departs from the internationally agreed parameters of a negotiated settlement to the Israeli Palestinian conflict Abbas argued through an interpreter that the deal legitimizes the quote confiscation and annexation of Palestinian land I would like to say to Mr Donald Trump yeah I'm not the rule that the proposed American do you cannot achieve peace and security because I canceled international legitimacy you can cancel international legitimacy trump's plan gives Palestinians for years to negotiate during that time Israel is not supposed to build on land that according to its map would be part of a Palestinian state but it also gives a green light to Israel to declare sovereignty over Israeli settlements in the occupied west bank without any agreement from the Palestinians Israel's ambassador to the U. N. Danny denounces Israel will coordinate that with the trump administration we value the walk of the administration we know that will come out that in the visits of the team to a religion hundreds of meetings and we all talking with them we will coordinate with them our next moves like we did in the past and we have a strong partnership with the United States he blasted Abbas for rushing to the U. N. rather than negotiating with Israel or making a counter offer and unknown told the security council that peace won't be possible until Abbas leaves office the US ambassador Kelly craft question whether this debate was worth the time my fervent hope is that after today's rhetoric clears Palestinian leaders will see this plan for the opportunity areas roll up their sleeves and seize this chance to sit down with the leaders of Israel to begin a new conversation trump son in law an adviser Jared Kushner who drafted the plan told CNN that if the Palestinians don't negotiate they're going to quote screw up another opportunity like they've screwed up every opportunity that they've ever had and quote Abbas made a point this afternoon of appearing alongside a former Israeli prime minister a Ehud Olmert who called Abbas a man of peace their talks failed in two thousand eight after all merit was indicted for bribery and forced to resign Michele Kelemen
Resolving Israel-Palestinian conflict, 'key to sustainable peace' in the Middle East
"Nineteen sixty seven. Arab states gathered in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum to issue what became known as the three knows no no recognition of Israel. No peace with Israel and no negotiations with Israel. Well this week these rarely prime minister. Benjamin Netanyahu met that Sudan's leader to discuss normalization between the two states. So what's happened well to discuss what this means joined by. Alison Kaplan SOMMA. His journalist for Haret's a very warm welcome back to monocle twenty four. Listen could you just briefly. Explain the background to this story. And the circumstances of the three knows well a few the days ago. It was announced that Prime Minister Netanyahu was going to go to Uganda and it was very mysterious. What the what? The circumstances were were around it and it turned out that the purpose of the visit was to meet with the chief of Sudan's Sovereignty Council Abdel Fattah El Brand and and they met and they agreed to start normalising normalizing ties between Uganda and Israel. And this is sort of the continuing eight of a process that seems to be back door coordination between the United States and Israel a lot of countries like Sudan African countries entries who have had very very closed attitudes towards the state of Israel have have realized that probably the key to getting taken the terror lists and being put in the good graces of the United States is through Jerusalem and therefore we've seen sort of a pattern of warming of ties between some of of these regimes including Chad for example which Netanyahu visited last year and Kind of understanding that as they move closer start towards Reconciliation with with Israel that they'll They'll get better treatment from the United States. At least that's that's the way it's interpreted on the side the The African and Asian countries that are that are moving towards warmer relations with Israel after decades of being closed towards that. So is that the reason why this is all happening now. Now the Sudan and Chad making overtures over receiving overtures from Israel simply so that they can get benefits from the United States. I'm do you know so. That's sort of the assumption obviously. Nobody's nobody's saying that out loud by the way he was in Uganda. Where this meeting with the chief of Of the Sudan Council that took place and at the same time it was announced that Uganda had agreed. We'll see if it happens if it had agreed to move. Its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. which which is another Another pattern of a move. That is that is An African country trying to to move closer to the United States via via Israel. But Yes the signs of cooperation and normalization appear to be coming from that place and of course the motivation on the Israeli side. Benjamin Netanyahu yeah was. He wants to show as many diplomatic accomplishments as possible before he heads towards elections which are in less than four weeks. Woods astonishing those. The likes of Sudan's ends information. Minister said that he had absolutely no information about the visit to Uganda. Why was this extensively kept quite secret? I think for both political and security reasons after the meeting took place the head of the Pilo Monitoring Committee part of the Palestinian Authority side Erakat said we aggressively condemn the meeting between the Sudanese president and a Tony'll and called it a stab in the back of the Palestinian nation in and deviation from the Arab consensus and that the timing is helpful to the trump administration and Netanyahu just as new peace plan was rolled out And according to Erekat eradicated the Palestinian issue by means of attacking the Al Aqsa Mosque and other holy places in Jerusalem. So these condemnations came after after the meeting and I think the reason it was kept so quiet and hush hush is so that these kind of condemnations wouldn't create political pressure that might prevent it from happening in the first place. You mentioned that. The Palestinians have objected fiercely to this decision. Will this move They've been trying to Effectively really drum up support from Arab nations and the Arab League including Sudan. This does not bode well for them. Does it. It doesn't what is you know. It's part of a pattern since the roll out of this peace plan which nobody is taking particularly seriously in terms of The likelihood that it will succeed but everyone on the the On the Palestinian side you know internationally views as a possible green light for Israel to to move ahead with With with annexation the Geo political calculation that everyone is assuming in the fact that many of the Arab nations are keeping rather quiet on the subject. Despite the Arab League's condemnation of the plan is simple calculation that much of the Sunni Arab world feels it needs the support of the United States and tacitly Israel to confront Iran and that that is currently much more important to it in a bigger priority than standing up for for the Palestinian cause. I Listen Kaplan summer. Journalists for Harris. Thank you very much indeed for joining US own monocle. Twenty four in the moment on today's globalist. We hear from foster and partners art correct about putting Pencil to paper when sketching new
Another Peace Plan for Israel and Palestine
"This White House is certainly not the first to offer a proposal for resolving the nearly eight decade conflict between Israel and the Palestinians and judging by their response so far trump's proposal will likely not be the one to resolve this issue. That has been vexing. American officials and much of the world since the nineteen sixties. The understand understand why solution has been so elusive. It's less essential to understand the specifics of the current plan on the table. Then it is to understand those things that the Israelis and Palestinians Estonians have long considered to be at stake first. Israel's chief concern is its own security not only from conventional military attacks at the hands of its many hostile neighbors verse but also from terrorist attacks at the hands of non-state actors like Hamas a second but just as central concern for both players in this conflict is the borders. There's and the nature of a Palestinian state third concern is the status of Jerusalem specifically whether it would be an undivided capital of Israel or divided lighted between both parties. And finally there's the question of what's known as the right to return namely whether the estimated four million descendants of the Palestinian Arabs CBS who fled. What is now Israel and the aftermath of the nine hundred forty seven partition and subsequent? Wars should have a right to return not only to the West Bank but also also to pre nineteen sixty seven Israel. Obviously the questions of where to place borders and who ought to be considered security threats are interrelated concerns and making this already Herculean task. Only more difficult are the Israeli settlements on the West Bank. The Palestinian harboring of bad actors and a history of to put it mildly hatreds and distrust. The trump administration's plan is formerly known peace to Prosperity A.. Vision to improve the lies of the Palestinian and Israeli people. People it runs fifty pages offers very specific proposals. I it rejects the right of return a concern that's essential to Israel because of the potential influx flocks of millions of Arabs that threaten its identity as a Jewish state and homeland. This on the other hand makes the proposal a non starter for the Palestinians. Second the plan would award virtually all of Jerusalem to Israel while designating Abu d say village bordering Jerusalem to be the capital of the Palestinian state. Third the map in the plan details the contours of the Palestinian state. Granting to the Palestinians about seventy percent of the West Bank plus Gaza in parts of the Negev desert however the current Israeli settlements would remain also according to the plan. The Palestinians would not be permitted their own military. They'd be forced to renounce violence and disband moss in exchange for this step toward Israeli security. They would receive fifty billion dollars in economic assistance. It's over ten years. How has the peace to prosperity planned? Been received well Dr Jerry. McDermott Anglican Chair of divinity. School told Christianity today this. This was a realistic opportunity for peace. He also noted the significant Arab support for the proposal including UAE. Amman Bahrain and Egypt Gitte Joel Rosenberg. Co founder of the Alliance for the peace of Jerusalem told Christianity today that the plan was generous to the Palestinians while giving the Israelis almost everything they wanted wanted on the other hand others including Arab Christians disagreed Dr Salim Mounier of muscle ministries which promotes reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians based on biblical principles told C.. T. that no Palestinian leader can accept this deal because it doesn't meet our basic needs another Palestinian Indian evangelical. Daoud Kutab said that the plan sounded more like a surrender dictate than a peace plan and more importantly the Palestinian Authority's President Mahmoud Mood. A boss called the plan a conspiracy and added we say a thousand times over No-no and if this plan is conditioned on the Palestinians bringing Hamas online. Well it's just difficult to imagine that happening to paraphrase a former Canadian prime minister if there was ever a place with too much history and too little geography. It's this part of the Middle East. That's why it's difficult to imagine that this plan will succeed where others have failed still. It is possible that it could be a step. Even if a very small one in in a better direction so we continue to follow the dictate of Psalm. One twenty two and pray for the peace of Jerusalem
Jared Kushner: Mideast peace plan not dead yet
"Mideast peace plan for Israel Israelis and Palestinians and proposed annexation plans in the disputed west banker on hold maybe sister Diana Miller is in Jerusalem Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas is threatening to cut off all security ties with Israel in protest of president trump's Mideast peace plan Abbas has never followed through with this oft repeated threat it would leave the Palestinian authority vulnerable to a Hamas takeover but that may change if Israel annexes parts of the disputed west bank Abbas made his threat from Cairo in an emergency session of the Arab league it's twenty two members including Egypt Jordan the UAE and Saudi Arabia officially rejected trump's peace plan saying it fails to meet the rights of
Abbas threatens to cut security ties with Israel, US
"Palestinian authority has officially cutting off all ties with the US and Israel that's even on security issues rejected a Middle East peace plan presented by the trump administration Austin in president Mahmoud Abbas and is in Cairo where he addressed an emergency meeting of the Arab league the announcement that the league support the peace plan would have required the creation of a demilitarized Palestinian state that excludes Jewish settlements built in what it considers occupied territory it would also be under Israeli security control prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu
What sets Trump's Mideast peace plan apart from previous proposals?
"The trump brings out this peace plan yesterday is this plan is effectively very simple basically get knowledges realities on the ground that's what this from Middle East peace plan is that what you're hearing from the media today is that trump has changed the game in the Middle East that from his abandon prospects for peace when what to wear is about this is the prospects for peace have stopped all wounds the reason they have stock always in the Middle East is because you have one side that would like to white the other side off of the map now a lot of prospects for peace over there in order to understand the Middle East conflict what you have to understand is one very simple truth Israel has accepted every piece offer that has ever been put in front of it and every single piece offer has been rejected by the Palestinians and the Arab world generally back in nineteen seventeen when the ball for declaration was first promulgated that said there would be Jewish national home in Palestine meeting now will be Jordan as well as Israel when that was first put out there the Jews immediately accepted the herbs turned it down and when people talk about this vast territory for the Jews get let let's be real about this there's some fifty eight Arab and Muslim countries on planet earth Arab or Muslim countries on planet earth all the Arab countries are all Muslim country there is one Jewish state I'm plant earth it is tiny Israel is something like fifteen thousand square miles is extraordinarily small Israel is half the size of New Jersey in a region that is extraordinarily large so the idea of a Jewish national home there not only is not any sort of giant cram down on the on the Arab population it is eight eight eight tiny percentage of the total land mass in the area and of course Jews have never stop living there there is a historic Jewish tie to the land of Israel but the reason I'm going back in history is you need to understand why it is the pieces never happen there and then because of the Jews okay so the Jews were originally told by the British Mandate by the British they're going to get Jordan as well as Israel okay then sliced off Jordan then they slice off half of Israel are they sliced away most of today and Samaria they sliced away half of Jerusalem it's like the way the Gaza Strip and then did you accepted that you like okay the U. N. says that Israel can be a state jurors will be an open international city right under the tutelage of the west right will not be in fact owned by the Jews are owned by the Arabs will be under the tutelage of the United Nations whatever is real touch that deal except it right granted an indefensible rum state in the borders in nineteen forty seven Israel accepted and the Arabs rejected has been termed by people living in Israel be out of its borders because they're completely indefensible completely understand how small Israel is you have to understand the borders before nineteen sixty seven included an area of Israel that is nine miles wide okay the distance from our office to the Santa Monica beach and that is the distance and and without traffic okay for without traffic you can travel the with of Israel with a bit of the state of Israel you can travel that without traffic in four in forty seven forty at worst you can travel that in under fifteen minutes and that is the worst in the entire country in that particular area if you've never been is really don't understand the geography you don't actually understand what's going on and understand how closely everything is packed together okay so Israel accepts that and the Arabs rejected and they declare war the Saudis the Jordanians the Egyptians the Syrians they all declare war on this new state the British were very much afraid of taking off the air is because they didn't want to drive the Arabs in the arms of the chair of the Soviet Union they refuse to allow Jews to emigrate to British Mandate Palestine so during the world during World War two as the Holocaust is happening the British mandated preventing Jews from moving in specifically because they don't want to take off the Arabs in the area the Jews largely go along with that Ben Gurion largely goes along with that in the interest of venture we getting state the state is finally granted by the United Nations and once that happens the user like okay fine I guess we'll just accept it okay if I like okay good at least we have a place to go at least now there is a Jewish national home and everything now okay this is when all of Japan's Maria Andrews wasn't international control and the Gaza Strip all of that is delegated to the Arabs who had pre sixty seven borders and say no and they want you in an isolation attack on the state of Israel and Israel fights back in the early stages of that of that war Arabs are urged by the Arab leadership to flee the area specifically because they're supposed to get out of the way of the onrushing Arab armies are gonna come in and crush the Jews and so they they're so hundred thousand Palestinian Arabs for living in the in the British Mandate Palestine in the Jewish area of what will be the the Israeli state of Palestine the the Israeli area Palestine hundred thousand arms fully he then as the war progresses it turns out that a lot of the Arab villages are actually if columns operating on behalf of the Arab armies which is exactly what you would expect because this is an ethnic conflict Hey the the Arabs are using these as bases of attack against the Jews they're cutting off supply lines supply rolled and the and the Israelis put in place some called operation dollar which says we are not going to lock down our tiny army in guarding these villages that are effectively in many cases a fifth column instead we're going to tell people that they need to leave these villages and move over to the Arab side okay now remember when the state of Israel was declared the state of Israel declaration of independence urges the Arab citizens to stay to stay here be part of the part of the work that we are doing be part of the state Ben Gurion didn't understand why the Arabs are fleeing using you can live here what's the problem she's lived as minority in Arab countries for thousands of years why exactly should there not be one Jewish state where Arabs are a minority and the assumption on the part of the Israeli leadership is that as all the Jews flowed into Israel from the other Arab countries and from Europe that that would become minority population more minority population their population okay sell people flee and then the Israeli army in the second wave is fighting these battles in in the middle of war there's always population term well people always leave to get out of the way I'm on rushing battles and the Israeli army can't afford to be locked down pin down transitive van insurgent campaigns in certain villages into the clear the population out okay so after the war ends there now something like for it anywhere from four hundred to seven hundred thousand Palestinian refugees at the same exact time nearly the same number of Jews are expelled from Arab countries around the region of ever talk about this right like the reason that there's so many Moroccan Jews who live in Israel the reason there's so many Iranian Jews living in Israel the reason there's so many Syrian Jews living in Israel is because at the time of the Israeli sounding seven hundred thousand Jews were expelled from the surrounding Arab countries and Israel took all of them in all of them it'll take all of them and with no international help he normally the U. N. helped fund the placement of refugees in new places no help at all Israel takes all of them in the Arab states instead of absorbing these populations into the general population decides that they're going to keep these populations refugees so the first movie is we are not going to actually allow them to return to the state of Israel when I can allow them to move back to division because that would be acknowledging that we lost the war and that they would have to then be Israeli citizens then very quickly within about a year the Arab leadership says you know great if we could infiltrate the state of Israel with a bunch of people who are on our side one of his state of Israel destroyed at that point the Israelis like well guess what we are not letting people in back into the state when they fled their homes were not letting them back in just to stand in favor of the destruction of the state is not never in human history has been the obligation of a of a state that was declared war on by its surrounding population to take in large numbers of members of people who are trying to destroy the state from within that has never been anything okay in in the aftermath of everywhere they're refugees the idea of resettlement of the refugees back in their original homes has never really been a thing either in fact is in the aftermath of World War two there were huge population transfers all over Europe they're in the aftermath of the of the declaration of the division of Pakistan and India there were tens of millions of people who are refugees and they were taken in by their countries and they did is that Indians live in India and Muslims live in Pakistan and the specific area where there is no separation cashmere has been a hot spot ever since but there's never been any call for less sixty years for all of the Indians were expelled from Pakistan and left Pakistan to have their original homes back in Pakistan right is never been negotiation point the Palestinians then are used as a tool by the Arab world to club Israel into submission and their use as an excuse to claim that Israel ought to be is right this is the so called right of return it's a great book on this at recommended yesterday called the war for turn by a couple of the leftist Israelis one was a former labor MK member of Knesset and one of them is journalist hearts okay so I'm just explaining history because it you're not going to stand from fees plan until you understand okay so there's never been anything internationally that says the Jews cannot live in Judean Samaria it's a ridiculous suggestion the notion that it is somehow a violation of international law for the Jews who won a defensive war in nineteen forty to settle in the areas they want is upset it's absurd okay in nineteen sixty four the Arabs still have yes merry on Gaza Egypt is in the Gaza Strip but has not an exit specifically because it does not actually want the Palestinian population absorbed into the Egyptian population density area have not been annexed by Jordan right they've not been technically annexed by Jordan for the exact same reason but Jordan is ruling intraday and Samaria Hey this is a so the notion that Israel was always ruling all of these errors all is just not historically true the Palestine Liberation Organization which is Yasser Arafat's organization now the Palestinian authority which rules the Palestinian areas in the west bank an area act the Palestinian authority effectively is founded in nineteen sixty four now you might notice something on the time line here nineteen sixty four is before nineteen sixty seven in nineteen sixty four the Arabs are talking about the liberation of Palestine at that point Jerusalem is split the Jordanians are in control of the old city of Jerusalem they've banned all Jews mentoring the old city of Jerusalem they discriminate against Christians in the old city of Jerusalem they build barbed wire fences around Jerusalem Hey they already control Judea and Samaria Egypt controls the Gaza Strip and yet there's something called the Palestine Liberation Organization weird what exactly are they seeking to liberate make very clear in their charter what exactly they're seeking to liberate every square inch of territory between the Jordan River in the Mediterranean Sea in other words the murder of every Jew in that region and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from that region a second Holocaust get a made this clear since nineteen sixty four in the nineteen sixty seven war happens and all the Arab countries under the leadership of NASA in Egypt decide to mobilize against the Israelis they decide they're going to want to second war every time shin against the Israelis and the Israelis get wind of this and the Israelis

S. as when this administration went temp decide that that is going to recognize is as illegal and exceptional Jerusalem out capital Palestinian territory occupied by Israel not only to recognize it to move unilaterally and illegally in the American embassy to Jerusalem and then closing the embassy the the consulate to and from Jerusalem which was the diplomatic mission to Palestine in eighteen forty four closing our mission and palace and that Washington and then the funding everything Palestinian and then attacking the refugees and so it meant that the Americans have become really partners with this man and as the war crime of of annexation and expansionism you are saying there was no point to have been part of this process each the it wouldn't have made any sense the way the situation was going let me ask you about some of the specifics in the plan it would allow this plan it would allow Israel to annex some contested settlements in the west bank Israel is planning a vote on that as soon as this weekend what would your response be if Israel does vote to annex those settlements well first of all these I'm not contest that settlements these out illegal settlements built illegally on Palestinian land frankly speaking that annexing and they're out extending Israeli law on the settlements and what they're doing is giving them to themselves that I could continue with the process that's been taking place they have expanded they have built in more than half a million settlers into the west bank they have stolen a lot of land already so they're staying is saying we're going to vote that we're going to keep it and we're going to expand what will saying is that there has to be accountability for is that that have to be curbs on Israeli behavior and lawlessness and of course the US has only emboldened and supported these ones now if they take such a step of course that would be protests of course most of the world I mean people have been issuing statements we have hundreds of you and his emotions and they haven't been and payment that and everybody says no we cannot accept this this is a legal from the E.

Trump unveils Middle East peace plan with no Palestinian support
"Just before. His team began their final arguments on Capitol Hill today. President trump unveiled a Middle East peace plan at the White House. It's been in the work since two thousand seventeen and the trump administration nation is touting it as the most detailed peace plan ever. The central focus of the plan is to lay the groundwork for two separate states for Israelis and Palestinians but it's conditioned dishes on the Palestinian Authority renouncing terrorism and acknowledging Jerusalem as the capital of Israel which has been a sticking point in the past trump made the announcement alongside inside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu but no Palestinian officials attended the event Palestinian Authority. President Mahmoud Abbas has already rejected. The plan sang. Jerusalem is not for sale. Joining me now is Wall Street. Journal executive Washington editor Jerry Seib Jerry. Let's talk more about what's in this plan. How what is it compared to previous efforts toward two state solution well it it significant in the first instance because it does call for two state solution and there was some doubt about that? Frankly frankly because you're surely Prime Minister Netanyahu who's very close to President trump had essentially backed away from a two-state solution last year and there are some people who wondered whether our president trump would even endorse a Palestinian state. As part of a solution he did. So that's in keeping with American policy but in other ways it's a significant departure from from the way the US has approached this because it basically decides at the outset before negotiations to even begin what the US position is on. Some of the most contentious issues for example is simply says at the outset that Jerusalem which both the Israelis and the Palestinians claim as their own will be undivided capital of Israel and that the Palestinians this will have to set up their capital in east Jerusalem beyond the boundaries of what is the core city of Jerusalem it also says the Israelis will basically incorporate areas on the West Bank where they have built settlements contested land again that normally has been something. American administrations have said should be settled in the course of negotiations this basically declares at the outset. That Israelis will take that land and similarly says the Israelis will have control the Jordan River valley for security reasons that becomes part part of the state of Israel effectively again. An issue that normally is reserved for negotiations is decided at least in the US view at the outset before the negotiations even begin and so in a way all of these things are designed to be in the words of administration officials realistic but at the same time they create pressure on the Palestinians by saying saying essentially. Look your situation on. The ground is getting worse as the Israelis expand their controlling your territories. So you'd better accept these realities and move onto onto a solution before things are even more dire for your hope for a Palestinian state of your own and notably absent from. Today's event at the White House were any Palestinian in representatives. How does this plan go forward? One side isn't at the table yet. Well that's another significant departure you know in the past past administrations have tried this and by the way Donald Donald Trump becomes the tenth president who tried to solve the Israeli Palestinian dispute. So there's a long line of futility here but in the past administrations have approached this point by at least having conversations with the Palestinians to get some idea of what ballpark they might be able to play in. That's not happening in this case because the Palestinians have simply stopped talking to the trump administration. Shen haven't talked to the trump administration for the last two years so this is an attempt to put out a plan and then hope the Palestinians come to it. How realistic is that? Well that depends. I think in enlarge measure on how other parties other Arab states respond. And whether they nudge the Palestinians toward at least having a conversation about this or on whether the Palestinians themselves decide that time really is running out and even though they don't like many things in this idea and they certainly don't like the trump administration. Maybe this is the only game left laughed better play so what does happen next. This is intended to start a discussion period right. Yeah and you know. Interestingly the trump administration is basically constructed structed this in a way in which they can say. We have four years to get this done. There's a long time here because they have convinced. The Israelis apparently to basically friesland not to expand into new Palestinian lands for four years to freeze everything in place for four years in hopes that in that timeframe there will be a start of negotiations and completion of the message of the Palestinians has been. Look you don't like this. You're not at the table now. Just take some time digest. This and things won't get worse on the ground for a while here while you decide what you're going to do but you ought to come to the table and we're going to give you space to work out something here by creating a kind of a four year window window and the hope is the Palestinians will eventually come through that for your window Jerry. A final note on the timing of the unveiling of this planet happened just before president. Trump's uh-huh defense team began their closing arguments in the Senate impeachment trial and ahead of a parliamentary vote on Benjamin Netanyahu's request for immunity from corruption and other charges. What what do you make of the timing well? Skeptics are going to point to the timing in both the US and Israel as the real reason this was put out that president trump is under pressure because of impeachment and Israeli Prime Minister. Netanyahu is under pressure because he's just been indicted and is trying to save his job and so that both of them needed a kind of diversion on the world diplomatic stage and this provides it for them and so of course the administration is denying. That's why this has come out now. They're essentially saying you know we needed to move ahead and the Israeli situation wasn't going to clear up soon so why not now but one of the reasons. I think people are going to be skeptical about. This is precisely the timing and the political circumstances in which this is being introduce both in the US and in Israel Wall Street Journal Executive Washington editor Jerry. seib thank you so

There's no cinema industry or anything. She works on small projects, but she is dying to leave. But she's unmarried and her family doesn't want her to leave. So she's just one of the many many talented young people in Gaza who really crave connection to the world, if tens of thousands of people are leaving Gaza.

So HAMAs keeps stability they keep out more extreme groups, and then we're back to where we started HAMAs still there is real is still blockading Gaza. One way out of this would be for the Palestinian Authority to rule Gaza. Not HAMAs the world would conceivably deal with the Palestinian Authority government, and theoretically Israel within lift its blockade Gaza, but HAMAs and the Palestinian Authority, our enemies, and they are not coming up with an arrangement to to really resolve the situation and in Israel. There are those who think it's better to have the Palestinians divided into warring groups like they are now it makes it harder for them to fight for independence state.
