A top official at the US Embassy in Jerusalem said, “As we have made consistently clear, we are prepared to recognize Israeli actions to extend Israeli sovereignty and the application of Israeli law to areas of the West Bank that the [Trump peace plan] foresees as being part of the State of Israel.” The statement made clear that “Israeli actions” will be validated by the Trump administration without recognition of a Palestinian state. -GEG

The recently established US Embassy in Jerusalem (moved from Tel Aviv last year as part of Trump’s plan) has confirmed that the world will soon see the most controversial element of Trump’s peace plan put into effect: Israeli annexation over broad swathes of the West Bank, particularly the Jordan Valley.

“As we have made consistently clear, we are prepared to recognize Israeli actions to extend Israeli sovereignty and the application of Israeli law to areas of the West Bank that the [Trump peace plan] foresees as being part of the State of Israel,” a top US Embassy official told the Times of Israel on Friday.

The statement made clear that “Israeli actions” will be validated with or without recognition of a Palestinian state, something which on paper at least Trump’s ‘deal of the century’ offered.

Though the deal offers statehood, the Palestinians have rejected the US-Israeli brokered Trump peace plan from the start, given they simply had no involvement or were not fundamentally consulted.

Ultimately such a brazen annexation, which as we noted before PM Netanyahu said will take place as early as within two months, or likely early summer, will essentially end the path to statehood.

But maybe this was the whole point to begin with: design and orchestrate a ‘peace plan’ which ultimately preempts any real path to statehood all while charging the Palestinian side with not being on board, or as has been heard many times before: the Israelis can claim “we don’t have a partner for peace”.

November 27, 2020 Tammy Bruce 1

Your maps of Palestinian lands are not true at all. The West Bank went to Jordan in 1948. The Gaza Strip was owned by Egypt, and it was never part of the Palestinian Mandate under the British prior to 1948. In fact, the very name Palestine was the old Roman name for Philista. Philista was the land of the Philistines of the Old Testament. The Philistines were the implacable enemies of the Israelites and were so for about a thousand years. After the Romans conquered the Jewish Zearlots who rebelled against them in 120 AD, the name of the Roman… Read more »

Thank you for such a thorough history…. i might add that with WWI the ARABS of the region organized under one leader and his sons, and collaborated with the BRITISH through T.E. Lawrence [of Arabia fame]. Some tribes however were unwilling to fight for the British and instead CHOSE TO FAVOR THE TURKISH side of the War effort.. and LOST along with the Turks. Hence they were omitted from the REWARDS THE BRITISH GAVE TO THOSE WHO FOUGHT ALONGSIDE THE BRITS. All those claims of promised statehood and independence were resolved with the Treaty of Hejaz after a lengthy period… Read more »
