Report: Trump peace plan will divide Jerusalem


Will the “Deal of the Century” peace plan of the Trump administration demand far-reaching concessions from Israel?

Hadashot 13 reported that the peace plan formulated by the White House and which President Trump is interested in presenting in the coming months includes the establishment of a Palestinian state in about 90 percent of Judea and Samaria, with at least part of eastern Jerusalem as its capital.

The report, which was quoted from an American source, said that the Americans would demand that isolated settlements outside the blocs not be expanded and outposts considered illegal by Israeli law be evacuated.

The source claimed that the Palestinian state would be built on more than twice the total area of Areas ​​A and B under the control of the Palestinian Authority today.

He added that Trump would seek to divide Jerusalem from a sovereign perspective into two capitals - Israel's in the west of the city and parts of eastern Jerusalem, and the Palestinian one in the Arab neighborhoods of eastern Jerusalem.


  1. So this is nothing to worry about.
    The Arab position has never wavered: a complete Jewish withdrawal from Yehudah and Shomron. Land swaps from within the 1967 borders to follow in which Israel exclusively gives land and Palestine exclusively takes. Therefore if Trump is proposing only a partial withdrawal, the Arabs will reject the plan.
    Even if the plan calls for a complete Jewish withdrawal from Yesh, it will still be rejected. Recall that once Israel retreated from 'Aza, Abbas announced that he still considered it occupied because he would accept nothing less than a withdrawal to the 1947 partition boundaries. So again, the deal will be rejected.
    And an Arab capital in the eastern part of Yerushalayim? The Arab position has always been that the entire Old City be handed over to them exclusively without Jewish control over an inch of it. Once again, the plan will be rejected.
