Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom, owned by American Jewish billionaire Sheldon Adelson, has published details on ‘deal of the century’, which Trump and his son-in-law Jared Kushner are preparing to release in June. Some American newspapers have already echoed the mystery that has enveloped these last months to settle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
It should be recalled here that Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton and George Bush Jr have each tried to solve the problem in vain. The new plan, which is already presented as the deal of the century, was designed by a group of Orthodox Jews working for representative for international peace process, Jason Greenblatt and US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman.
According to Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer converted to journalism, the group in question does not have Arabs, Muslims or Christians, but it would have had many interviews with the leaders of Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, and of course, the Palestinians, the first concerned. No detail, however minimal, can be included in the deal if it does not have the approval of Israel.
It goes without saying that all the team members working for Kushner are fervent defenders of the Israeli colonies, illegal under international law. Trump is therefore preparing to announce his deal, although, he does not know much about the tumultuous and centennial history of the conflict in Palestine, the inextricable complexity of its ins and outs.
Most-likely outcome of the deal
Ideally, both parties must make concessions, but as usual, it will be the Palestinians who are most likely to make all the concessions and Israel, bridle on the neck, will continue to enjoy the impunity.
According to Philip Giraldi, the signing parties of the deal should include Israel, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, with the United States playing the role of a peacemaker.
Surprisingly, Trump and his son-in-law are preparing for a Palestinian state called “New Palestine,” which would comprise of the Gaza Strip and parts of the West Bank without Israeli settlements.
Palestine would be built on land located somewhere in the Egyptian Sinai through a lease agreement and the name of the capital is still unknown. The latter would also have the right to a seaport in Gaza. The West Bank, or what remains of it, and Gaza would be connected by a road through Israel and controlled by it.
Trump and Jared Kushner do not seem to doubt for a moment that the Palestinians would agree to the “immense economic benefits” that it entails. The architects of the deal have planned a financial assistance of $30 billion over the first five years (equivalent to the three-week US budget) to be paid by taxpayers from the United States, the European Union, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, according to Philip Giraldi.
In terms of security, the “New Palestine” will have a police force to warn potential troublemakers, but no arm forces. But if the Palestinians reject this proposal, they might suffer the same fate currently inflicting on the people of Venezuela and Iran.
