Donald Trump finally made it to Vietnam — I guess his bone spurs aren’t bothering him anymore — to hold a secret rendezvous with Kim Jong-Un, the murderous dictator he “fell in love” with after receiving several “beautiful letters” from him, to discuss Kim’s non-existent nuclear disarmament plan.
Meanwhile, Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, is in the Middle East visiting Gulf Arab states to promote his pro-Palestinian peace plan for Israel and the non-existent State of Palestine. However, if Jared, Ivanka, and Daddy Trump have their way, a Palestinian state will soon be a reality, and Israel will pay for it with the currency of lost sovereignty and security.
In an interview broadcast on Sky News Arabia, Kushner did Trump proud by boasting about the peace plan his father-in-law is calling the “deal of the century” while providing absolutely no details. However, based on statements made by Trump and Kushner over the past six months, I think we know the details he tried to hide.
During a West Virginia campaign rally in August 2018, Trump essentially threatened Israel with extortion to get a “peace” deal done with the Palestinians.
“And you know what? In the negotiation, Israel will have to pay a higher price because they want a very big thing, but I took it off the table. There’s nothing to negotiate but [the Palestinians will] get something very good because it’s their turn next.
“Let’s see what happens. It’s very interesting. I’ve always heard that’s the toughest deal of all deals — it’s called peace between Israel and the Palestinians.” (emphasis mine)
One month later, Trump met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after giving a speech to the U.N. In a news conference following the meeting, Trump endorsed the oft-failed two-state solution as the best way to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
“I like (a) two-state solution. That’s what I think works best. That’s my feeling. Now, you may have a different feeling. I don’t think so. But I think two-state solution works best.”
Comparing the conflict in the Middle East to a real estate deal, Trump also stated that he would support a one-state solution as well.
“If the Israelis and the Palestinians want one-state, that’s okay with me. If they want two states, that’s okay with me. I’m happy if they’re happy.”
Translation? I have no firm convictions. I’ll do whatever Jared and Ivanka tell me to do.
Last month, the Jerusalem Post reported that Jared Kushner would begin making a push for Trump’s peace plan ahead of the 2020 U.S. election, but that he would wait to disclose the details until after Israel’s April election. Why wait? The administration is hoping there will be enough turnover in April to garner support for the two-state solution.
While playing coy about his intention to push for a Palestinian state, Kushner stated in the Sky News Arabia interview that his plan will be built on “a lot of the efforts of the past,” including the 1990s Oslo accords that provided for a Palestinian state. He also said his proposal is a “political plan, which is very detailed” and that it’s “really about establishing borders and resolving final-status issues.”
Sounds like Israel is about to be betrayed by the man Netanyahu once called a “true friend.”
