Four major Middle East powers support President Trump’s “deal of the century” peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians.
The president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, has been traveling the Middle East the past two weeks meeting with Arab officials to push the Trump peace plan.
Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Jordan and the UAE all reportedly support the Trump peace plan for the Middle East.
Middle East Eye reported:
Four Arab countries are backing Donald Trump’s plan for a settlement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, according to an Israeli newspaper, and are willing to sideline the PA’s President Mahmoud Abbas to see it done.
According to a report in Israel Hayom, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Egypt and Jordan told Jared Kushner, the US president’s son-in-law and the man charged with solving the Israel-Palestine issue, and envoy Jason Greenblatt they were behind Washington’s so-called “deal of the century”.
Israel Hayom, a daily newspaper owned by billionaires Miriam and Sheldon Adelson, reported that it spoke to officials from the four Arab countries.
The officials are said to have told the paper that their countries have decided to back the US plan regardless of whether Abbas and the PA engage with it.
In the report, a “top Egyptian official” says the countries are unanimous in their position that were the US to go over Abbas’ head and attempt to implement the settlement plan, they would not be opposed to it.
Since taking the presidency, Trump has often framed himself as the man to finally negotiate an end to the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Jared Kushner sat down with the editors of the Al Quds news this week to discuss the deal of the century.
The details of the Trump plan have yet to be made public.
Kouchner considered that the Palestinian and Israeli sides should make mutual concessions to make peace and a bright future for the two peoples. “The actual deal points are between Israelis and Palestinians, but the economic plan we are working on can show what comes as part of a deal when it is achieved with some huge investments that extend to the Jordanian and Egyptian people as well,” he said. Thus precluding a regional solution.
