20200128: Peace in the Middle East ~ Plan Announcement

Watch Live from the White House: https://www.whitehouse.gov/live/?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=wh

Remember, we’re all on Wolfie’s Roller Coaster. We’re all here together. Right now we are picking up spead, and things are coming at us fast —– BIG THINGS. There’s simply no way any other President will be able to keep up this pace. The announcement will come at NOON, Eastern time.

The money shot.

Bibi is at the White House, along with his political rival (who we have not seen?). The three men talked over the “Suggestion” as President Trump says, for a “Middle East Peace Plan”. The President acknowledged that at first the Palestinians might not like the plan, but in the end they will like it (offer they can’t refuse) and casually mentioned the Trump Admin cut off 300 million dollars of aid to the Palestinians. He added, “In the end, they’ll like it…. but let’s see what happens.” Note: The USA has had this kind of power all along, but it takes a guy like Trump to use it properly.

Let’s get to the background on what has happened at the White House thus far. We had the meet and greet with photos at the door. We had a wild presser in the Oval Office with Bibi:

Full Transcript can be found at the bottom of this thread. WAIT UNTIL YOU SEE BIBI’s little SPEECH! WOW!

And the two men spoke to the press for a while outside on the colonade.

The Wall Street Journal seems to like it.

Iran HATES the Plan, even though they have not seen it yet. No matter, we know Iran’s economy won’t last a year. We’ve moved on, ignoring Iran as their power is no longer important in the Middle East. Iran is out of gas.

And China claims the Palestinians don’t like it, even though they have not seen it. China has their own problems and the Palestinians are broke and tired. Rabid leftists hate it, even though they have not seen it ~ because they LOVE chaos and will never be satisfied.

Here, Reuters also reports on Bibi’s political rival, Ex-general Benny Gantz. He is at the White House, in a separate meeting? Have to separate the kids, I guess. Here he is……. he looks pretty tough.

They’re calling it “The Deal of the Century”. Let’s see what happens. Reaction is pouring in from everywhere. Arab pundits, China/Russia, all of Europe………. everyone is watching PDJT.

Transcript from Today: Emphasis is mine on Bibi’s “speech”.

Q Mr. President, what’s your response to the Bolton manuscript? And does this increase the chances he could be called to testify?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I haven’t seen a manuscript, but I can tell you: Nothing was ever said to John Bolton. But I have not seen a manuscript. I guess he’s writing a book. I have not seen it.

Q Well, you know what the allegation is.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We’ll talk inside.

Q Do you expect Prime Minister Netanyahu to implement the plan right away in the coming six weeks?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I think he’s here for a reason. And, hopefully, that it will be “yes.” And peace in the Middle East has been long sought for many, many, many years and decades and centuries. And this is an opportunity; we’ll see what happens. Whatever it is, it is. But he’s here for a reason.

Q Would you give a green light for annexation of the Jordan Valley within the coming months?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We’re going to see. We’re going to announce tomorrow at 12 o’clock. We’re going to show a plan that’s been worked on by everybody, and we’ll see whether or not it catches hold. If it does, that’d be great. And if doesn’t, we can live with it, too. But I think it might have a chance.

Q Do you expect Benny Gantz to agree to the plan?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Do I expect what?

Q Benny Gantz.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: He’s coming here today. He’ll be here also. And, as you know, they are two good competitors. They’re fighting it out.

I’ve been waiting now — this is my third election. We keep waiting, and waiting, and waiting. So, let’s go. What kind of a system is that? That’s a very strange system you have over there. Wouldn’t you say that?

Because we have been. We’ve been waiting — we’ve been talking about this for many months and we keep waiting for the election. So that system has to be looked at.

Q But what about the allegations that this is an interference with internal politics in Israel? The fact that —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I think what’s happening is — one of the reasons that Mr. Gantz is here is for that reason. He’s coming, too. So I’m going to speak to him right after this.

Q What is your message to the residents of Judea and Samaria at this point?

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: May I — may I say something?

Q Yeah.

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: I think — first of all, I’m very honored to be here with you —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you. It’s my honor.

PRIME MINISTER NETANYAHU: — here today, Mr. President. And I look forward to making history with you tomorrow. And I think we’ll talk about the plan; I’ll talk about the plan — of vision of peace, which is historic — the President has put forward tomorrow.

Today, I just want to say two words: Thank you. Thank you for everything you’ve done for Israel, everything you’ve done for Israel — for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital; for moving your embassy there; for recognizing our sovereignty in the Golan Heights; for recognizing our rights in Judea and Samaria, the heartland of our biblical homeland; for the unprecedented security and intelligence cooperation between our two countries.

I think, Mr. President, that the list of your support for Israel, the things you’ve done for Israel since you’ve become President, is very long. But the bottom line is short: You have made our alliance stronger than ever. And I look forward, in the coming years, to make it even stronger with a historic defense treaty that will anchor our alliance for generations.

One last thing — one last thing, which I think is important: This is International Holocaust Remembrance Day. And on this day, I’m proud to stand here, as the Prime Minister of the one and only Jewish State, and thank you for confronting the most anti-Semitic regime on the planet. When you came into office, Iran was on the march. Because of your leadership, Iran is now on the run.

You’ve withdrawn from the dangerous nuclear — the nuclear deal. You slapped on tremendous sanctions. You have — two weeks ago, you’ve taken out the most dangerous terrorist on the planet. All those who seek peace, all those who want to fight terrorism should thank you, Mr. President, for your bold decisions and your bold actions.

And on behalf of the State of Israel, I want to thank you for everything you’ve done for Israel, for confronting Iran, and for your extraordinary decisions, your friendship, and your leadership.

That’s the end of my speech.

Q President Trump, last time, I asked you if you were for a two-state solution. Are you going to say, tomorrow, “two-state and a Palestinian State”?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: You’re going to see very, very quickly. We’re going to release a plan tomorrow at 12 o’clock. You’re going to see for yourself.

Okay. We’ll see you inside.

We all know Jared Kuschner has been working on this plan with dozens of leaders in the Middle East and within our Administration. With Iran on the run, and elections in Israel still up in the air, the timing might be perfect for this plan. Call it Freedom from Mueller, Impeachment going nowhere, winding up China Phase 1, USMCA deal, the power of our economy, the “the Power of the Orb”, the trip to Saudi, the great speech to the GCC, the coalition with Egypt, Israel, Lebanon, and Saudi, the sanctions against Iran, the death of Soleimani, call it whatever you want……….. It might work.

Let the doves of peace, fly…………..

two doves flying with spread wings on sky

  1. This is a historic day (this is the speech of Bibi’s lifetime, the culmination of his entire career)

    Wow, goosebumps.
    Down the decades, down the centuries, on this day, YOU (Trump) became the first world leader to recognize territries central to our heritage.
    Brilliant future.

    Okay we’re going to need a transcript for this one.

    1. “Jerusalem, under Israel sovereignty”

      _____________

      If so, that means the Temple can rebuilt.

      I wonder what happens then?

      Where is the Ark of the Covenant, and the contents (the Book of the Law, and Aaron’s staff, and the manna in the jar, saved as a memorial of the food eaten by the children of Israel during their 40 years in the desert).

      How will the Levitical priesthood be restored, without accurate genealogical records to determine who is a direct descendant of the Tribe of Levi?

      Where is the Altar, and the table, and the staves and other instruments overlaid with gold, originally constructed for the Temple?

      If the location of these things is actually known by someone, and the Temple is restored, along with the Levitical priesthood, will the rest of the Old Law be restored, e.g., daily animal sacrifices and burnt offerings?

      This is going to be fascinating.

      1. Scott, I like your questions. I think a current generation has been looking into the answers since the 1980s. Of course, as you know, rumors are easy to start but sometimes the dominoes are already set up – behind the curtain.

        “We’ll see how that works out.”

  5. May take a long time to get to this path,
    to make peace
    to abide by conditions
    we are prepared to negotiate right way

    Plan is too rich, too good, for the Palestinians to pass up.
    Makes sense.

    1. I went from a very rural community in the PNW to “The Shore” on the East Coast. Never met a Jew until my sophomore year in college so was very naive about so many Jewish things.
      I will say, though that “if not now, when” was a phrase I heard all my life growing up, especially from my dad who immigrated from Western Canada. The phrase was very apropos in his case because he developed lung cancer and died in his mid-60’s…for me, a lesson learned.
      The phrase I liked the most (have no idea if it’s typical Jewish or not)….”wear it (enjoy it) in good health.” For example, if someone got a new piece of jewelry, or a new coat or car…it was always said. I was so taken with the phrase, I’ve used it since I since then.
      Then there’s the old one that still makes me laugh…”what am I…chopped liver?” I’ll let NYGuy explain that one! 😁

  7. 1948, Bengurin and Truman, seized the moment, and declared the Jewish state.
    Same as today.
    Many obstacles.
    If not now, when?
    If not us, who?

    Opportunity of the century.
    Blessed to have your friendship.
    Greatest power on earth, the USA.

    1. The first map is 1922 Jewish Palestine – after 77% of the British Mandate for the Jewish people was given to the Arabs – Jordan is Arab Palestine.

      Moving all the Muslims out of Jewish Palestine – aka Israel – will be the only lasting solution.

      1. Gaza is the ancient land of the Philistines – it’s been a scourge upon the Jewish people – physically and spiritually – since the time of the 12 tribes of Israel.

        Israel’s problems won’t end until they repent and turn from abortion and homosexuality.

        1. I know – just my opinion.

          History shows Islamists do not honor peace treaties and they claim all land for Islam. Not sure 80 billion will change that.

    They don’t want their own country.
    Don’t realize money from Iran is drying up.
    Don’t want the 50 billion dollars.
    Don’t want opportunities for their kids to have JOBS as opposed to being suicide bombers.

  10. This reminds me of the Irish problem – between the Protestants and the Catholics and the IRA.
    And like the North and South after the Civil War.

    1. ‘Palestinians’ have been teaching their children to hate Jews for generations – it’s up to them now.

      The new map looks like a means to assimilate, more than two separate nations.
