White House Unveils Mideast Peace Plan

“The man who makes Me his refuge will inherit the land and possess My holy mountain.” Isa. 57:13

President Donald Trump released the USA Mideast peace plan on Tues. 28 Jan. 2020. The White House statement said, "This vision is just the first step and provides the basis for historic progress toward peace. If the Palestinians have concerns with this vision, they should bring them forth in the context of good-faith negotiations with the Israelis and help make progress for the region. Mere opposition to this vision is simply a declaration of support for the hopeless status quo that is the product of decades of stale thinking. The vision aims to achieve mutual recognition of the State of Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people and the future State of Palestine as the nation-state of the Palestinian people, with equal civil rights for all citizens within each state. The vision creates a path for the Palestinian people to realize their legitimate aspirations for independence, self-governance, and national dignity. Under this vision, neither Palestinians nor Israelis will be uprooted from their homes. The vision fully addresses Israel's security requirements, does not ask Israel to take additional security risks, and enables Israel to defend itself by itself against any threats. The vision provides for a demilitarized Palestinian state living peacefully alongside Israel, with Israel retaining security responsibility west of the Jordan River." PM Netanyahu said the plan recognizes Israel's need for a buffer along the Jordan River, giving it strategic depth against enemies to the east and the ability to prevent the smuggling of weapons to the Palestinians. The Palestinian capital would be in eastern Jerusalem neighborhoods cut off by the Israeli security barrier. The plan also contemplates land swaps giving the Palestinians parts of what is now Israel including some areas of Israel that are heavily populated by Arab citizens. (White House/NY Times)

Pray for Israel according to scripture that both leaders and citizens of the Jewish state will inquire of the Lord and receive collective wisdom regarding the new Trump peace deal: "If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him." Jas. 1:5-6
