US President Donald Trump is reported to release his peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians on Tuesday and for the first time publicize a map outlining the borders of a proposed Palestinian state.
The presentation of a detailed map of the borders between Israel and a future Palestinian state is something that no American president has ever done before.
Trump will reveal the plan at a ceremony in the East Room of the White House that will be attended by Jewish and Republican leaders. He will be joined onstage by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
On Monday, Trump asked Netanyahu and Blue and White Party leader Benny Gantz in separate meetings to take immediate action on implementing his plan.
The US president’s message to Netanyahu and Gantz is, “You have six weeks to get this going – if you want it,” a US official told Reuters.
“This is an opportunity for peace,” Trump said, standing next to Netanyahu upon his arrival to the White House on Monday.
“We’ll show a plan that has been worked on by everyone. We’ll see if it catches hold. If it does, that’d be great. If it doesn’t, it’s okay.”
Netanyahu told Trump he is “looking forward to making history” together tomorrow and called the plan “a vision of peace, which is historic.”
Reportedly the plan with its map will include the annexation of all West Bank settlements to Israel, along with most of the Jordan Valley, in a way that would allow for maximum territory with minimum non-Israeli residents so that the Palestinians could live in their own, demilitarized state.
The “near zero” amount of Palestinians who would be on the annexed land, a source close to Netanyahu said, would be “treated in accordance with the law.”
This may likely mean they would be permanent residents with an optional pathway to citizenship, like the 350,000 residents of east Jerusalem.
It had long been presumed that Ma’aleh Adumim, the third-largest settlement and home to more than 38,000 people, would be the first West Bank settlement to be annexed by Israel.
It is five km. east of Jerusalem in the direction of Jericho, and it could be a step toward the Jordan Valley’s future annexation.
Annexing the Jordan Valley could be more complicated because it may threaten stability in Jordan and its peace treaty with Israel. In addition, some 75,000 Palestinians live in the valley.
Trump said he thinks he will “ultimately have the support of the Palestinians,” who thus far have opposed the plan sight unseen.
The Palestinians cut-off all communication and participation with the Trump Administration after the US recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and placed the US Embassy there.
The Biblical prophecies (Matthew 24, Luke 21) foretell that Israel and Jerusalem with the Temple Mount will be the epicenter of Last Days events at the end of this age.
These events and conditions happening now are signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2).
Preparing those Biblically born again into the Kingdom of God to be ready to escape all the things that will come to pass, in the wrath of the tribulation of Revelation prophecy, that comes upon the world of disobedience. As the born again Church is not appointed unto wrath (1 Thessalonians 1:10) but instead to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ.
