If I was an Israeli Jewish Voter – NO DEAL!

I AM NOT amenable for Arabs that pretend to be a Palestinian people to have any sort of sovereign nation. BUT I don’t live in Israel. If Jews are willing be a vote to give up their Biblical heritage in an over generous and probably disastrous move to give a State to Arabs called Palestine, it’s their business.

 

Those Israeli voters MUST remember what happened in Gaza after Jews were forced to leave ultimately giving autonomous rule to Jew-hating Hamas. NAMELY, constant missile barrages and terrorist tunnels to murder Jews.

 

A Palestinian State will be worse than Hamas controlled Gaza, since President Trump’s Deal of the Century intends to AGAIN divide Jerusalem. Though I have not been able to find and read how Trump’s Deal of the Century Divided Jerusalem affects the Western Wall of the Temple Mount where two sacrilegious Muslim Mosques stand, I can’t imagine it bodes well for Jews revering their faith and heritage.

 

The place named the West Bank by conquering Jordanians in 1948, and now more referred to as Judea and Samaria after recapturing in 1967, will be bulk of this Arab state to be called Palestine if successful.

 

I find myself on the rare occasion praying Faux-Palestinian shoot themselves in the foot by nixing this so-called Deal of the Century through their typical Jew-hating terrorism that vainly tries to kill all Jews to erase Israel from the map.

 

I feel comfortable with stating a guarantee that a Deal of the Century Palestinian State would mean the resumption of Islamic inspired militaries from surrounding nations to invade Israel to pronounce Dar al Islam over the Jewish State of Israel with the goal of a 2nd Jewish Holocaust making Hitler’s Final Solution appear as child’s play.

 

I AM A TRUMP SUPPORTER VOTING TRUMP in November 2020, but if I was an Israeli voter, I would wholly reject this Deal of the Century.

 

Here is – to the best of my knowledge – an unauthoritative version of the Deal of the Century but from the U.S. White House under the pdf title, “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People” (181 pages).

 

Thanks to the blog work of Geri Ungurean a very important video of Pastor J.D. Farag sermon on the Deal of the Century at his Church on Super Bowl Sunday 2/2/20. Pastor Farag at about the 6 ½ minute begins with facts about Arabs calling themselves Palestinians. Pastor Farag’s sermon demonstrates the reason the Two-State Solution attributed to Trump but actually formulated by his son-in-law Jared Kushner will NOT BRING PEACE between Israel and a Palestine State dedicated to Islam. Ungurean’s post is entitled, “I have never been more proud of Pastor JD Farag. He spoke truth about the so-called peace plan, and he didn’t care who disagreed with him!  Praise God, Pastor JD!  Keep speaking truth!” Ungurean includes a roughly hour ling video of three Christian Zionist pro-Trump and Pro-Netanyahu who begin with the disbelief Trump would divide Jerusalem yet most of the video is about Bible Prophecy relating to the Antichrist coming to mess up Israel for awhile. The prophetic portion is the reason I suspect Ungurean included the 2nd video. You’ll have to go her blog for the second video. HERE IS THE Farag VIDEO:

Deal of the Century?

That is how President Trump bills the Israeli-Arab peace plan that he unveiled today. You can download the entire proposal, titled “Peace to Prosperity: A Vision to Improve the Lives of the Palestinian and Israeli People,” here. I haven’t had time to digest the entire plan, but the Jerusalem Post summarizes the high points:

 

Borders: Trump’s plan features a map of what Israel’s new borders will be, should it enact the plan fully. Israel will retain 20% of the West Bank and will lose a small amount of land in the Negev near the Gaza-Egypt border. The Palestinians will have a pathway to a state in the vast majority of territory in the West Bank, while Israel will maintain control of all borders.

 

This is the first time an American peace plan has included a map. President Trump apparently has delved into the details of the Arab-Israeli conflict.

 

Visiion4Peace Conceptual Map- Israel & Palestinian State

 

Jerusalem: The Palestinians will have a capital in east Jerusalem based on northern and eastern neighborhoods that are outside the Israeli security barrier – Kafr Akab, Abu Dis and half of Shuafat. Otherwise, Trump said Jerusalem will remain undivided as Israel’s capital.

 

If implemented, this would be a big win for Israel. This is important, too:

 

Settlements: Israel will retain the Jordan Valley and all Israeli settlements in the West Bank in the broadest definition possible, meaning not the municipal borders of each settlement but their security perimeters. This also includes 15 isolated settlements, which will be enclaves within an eventual Palestinian state. Within those settlements Israel will not be able to build for the next four years.

 

Security: Israel will be in control of security from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea. The IDF will not have to leave the West Bank. No change to Israel’s approach to Judea and Samaria would be needed.

 

Palestinian state: The plan does not include immediate recognition of a Palestinian state; rather, it expects a willingness on Israel’s part to create a pathway toward Palestinian statehood based on specific territory, which is about 70% of Judea and Samaria, including areas A and B and parts of Area C. The state will only come into existence in four years if the Palestinians accept the plan, if the Palestinian Authority stops paying terrorists and inciting terrorism and if Hamas and Islamic Jihad put down their weapons. In addition, the American plan calls on the Palestinians to give up corruption, respect human rights, freedom of religion and a free press, so that they don’t have a failed state. If those conditions are met, the US will recognize a Palestinian state and implement a massive economic plan to assist it.

 

I think the likelihood of Palestinian leadership inducing Hamas and Islamic Jihad to abandon violence, or giving up on its own crusade to massacre Jewish Israelis, is close to zero. Early returns suggest that this evaluation is correct:

 

Palestinians from across the political spectrum have strongly rejected US President Donald Trump’s plan for Mideast peace, which was unveiled by the White House on Tuesday.

 

“We say 1,000 ‘no’s to this deal,” Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said.

***

Palestinian officials and political factions vowed to work toward thwarting the plan, also known as the “Deal of the Century,” on the pretext that it aims to “liquidate the Palestinian cause.”

 

Abbas was speaking during an emergency meeting of Palestinian officials in Ramallah on Tuesday evening to discuss ways of responding to the Trump plan. Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad representatives were invited to participate in the meeting.

 

In a televised address, Abbas called the plan a “conspiracy,” adding that his people’s rights “are not for sale.”

 

“I say to Trump and Netanyahu: Jerusalem is not for sale, all our rights are not for sale and are not for bargain. And your deal, the conspiracy, will not pass,” he said.

 

I guess that is a No. If you are a Palestinian politician, the money is on the other side. Notwithstanding the fact that the Trump plan includes, if the Palestinians put down their arms and agree to acknowledge the State of Israel, billions of dollars in aid that dwarf, on a per capita basis, the Marshall Plan. But the welfare of the Palestinian people has never been a priority for radical Arab politicians.

 

So, does President Trump’s peace plan have a chance of succeeding? Probably not, in the short term. But at some point, Israeli and Palestinian Arabs may be willing to acknowledge that terrorism has been a dead end for them. This will require a complete change in leadership, but that likely will happen eventually.
