United States President Donald Trump has unveiled his long-awaited Middle East peace plan, proposing the creation of a Palestinian state but keeping Jerusalem as Israel’s capital: Under Mr Trump’s plan, the US would recognise Israeli settlements on the occupied West Bank. In exchange, Israel would agree to accept a four-year freeze on new settlement activity while Palestinian statehood is negotiated……………………”Today, Israel has taken a giant step toward peace,” Mr Trump said as he announced the plan at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side, saying he also sent a letter about it to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Mr Trump proposed Palestine’s new capital be in eastern Jerusalem, but dependent on Palestinians taking steps to become self-governing, he said, in an effort to achieve a peace breakthrough in their decades of conflict with Israel:

“This is a historic day,” Mr Netanyahu said, comparing Mr Trump’s peace plan to former president Harry Truman’s 1948 recognition of the state of Israel………………………..”On this day, you became the first world leader to recognise Israel’s sovereignty over areas in Judea and Samaria that are vital to our security and central to our heritage,” he added, using the Biblical names for the West Bank……………….While Israeli leaders have welcomed Mr Trump’s long-delayed plan, Palestinian leaders had rejected it even before its official release, saying his administration was biased towards Israel……………..The absence of the Palestinians from Mr Trump’s announcement is likely to fuel criticism that the plan tilts toward Israel’s needs rather than those of the Palestinians.

The most dramatic attempt to break historic deadlock

Israeli-Palestinian talks broke down in 2014, and it was far from clear that the Trump plan would resuscitate them: US officials said they were braced for initial Palestinian scepticism but hoped that over time they would agree to negotiate. The plan places high hurdles for the Palestinians to overcome to reach their long-sought goal of statehood…………..It remains to be seen also how Israel responds, given the pressures its right-wing prime minister, Mr Netanyahu, faces going into his third attempt at re-election in less than a year………………The US plan represented the most dramatic and detailed attempt to break the historic deadlock between Israel and the Palestinians in several years, the result of a three-year effort by Mr Trump’s senior advisers, which include his son-in-law Jared Kushner.

Mr Trump has endorsed a proposed map outlining the two states. The Palestinian state would be double the size of land that Palestinians currently control and would be connected by roads, bridges and tunnels, officials said: When asked what Washington was prepared to do to advance negotiations, White House officials said it was up to the Palestinians to come forward and to say they were prepared to negotiate…………………….Israel’s agreement on statehood for Palestinians is dependent on a security arrangement to protect Israelis, they said, adding that both Mr Netanyahu and opposition leader Benny Gantz had said they were willing to support the effort.
