USA Plans to Approve Israeli Annexations Soon

White House Senior Advisor Jared Kushner told senators in a meeting last week that the Trump administration is pressing ahead with its Middle East peace plan, even with the Palestinians boycotting the process. The administration is urging the Palestinians to negotiate, warning that its current plan will move forward without their input if they don't. Kushner said the mapping and demarcation process will take months, and that the Palestinians could improve the proposal by negotiating. Otherwise, the USA will move ahead without their involvement. A joint American-Israel mapping committee convened in Jerusalem two weeks ago to begin discussing the demarcation of areas in Judea & Samaria to be recognized as part of Israel. The White House feels that because PM Netanyahu and Benny Gantz, his main rival, both support the plan, it can move ahead. The Palestinians have stated their refusal to accept the Trump administration's peace plan well before the plan was even unveiled, and since then have refused to budge on the issue. In addition, the Palestinian Authority has been cracking down on any perceived efforts of "normalization" of ties with Israel in the months since the plan was unveiled. (VFI News)
