Peace is never on Trump’s agenda for the hardcore businessman he is. But owing to every nook and corner of support he can look into, and gather a vote bank, Donald Trump is now moving towards unveiling a Middle Eastern peace plan to Israeli leaders this week.
Finally, wishing to salvage some of his brute and crude remarks over climate change and lack of initiative over anything of softer sentiments, Trump will hold separate, back-to-back meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz, the head of the centrist Blue and White Party, who is Netanyahu’s rival in March 2 elections.
Trump is moving towards the long-stalled plan to bring Israel and Palestine of some same footing to negotiate peace. But Palestine has lost faith in Trump after he supported Netanyahu last year in the threat of annexing the West Bank.
They are known to have refused to engage the Trump administration on the effort and roundly denounced a $50-billion economic revival plan it set forth last July to lift the Palestinian and neighboring Arab state economies.
Trump has been putting a peace proposal together for the last three years and was not able to disclose it to the concerned parties, as Netanyahu was struggling to put a governing coalition together.
The Trump plan is a joint effort by senior advisers Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz, as well as Jason Greenblatt, who left the government last autumn.
A decision has to come by for the betterment of both Palestine and Israel before both leaders Netanyahu and Trump lose office; else effort made to create a passage of peace would have gone to waste.
