    President Trump will push for a two-state solution to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as he unveils the details of his administration’s much-awaited Middle East peace plan Tuesday, White House officials told Fox News.

    Trump is set to announce the proposal alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during remarks in the East Room of the White House at noon Tuesday. Odds of the peace plan taking shape are long, given that the Palestinians have preemptively rejected the plan.

    But White House officials described the plan as realistic and said Israel is prepared to act. According to White House officials, the plan calls for a two-state solution including the state of Israel and the "future" state of Palestine. Under the plan, the Palestinians would have to reach certain benchmarks to achieve a state. Those benchmarks include rooting out terrorism, stopping what they call “pay to slay,” implementing steps toward free speech, and other political reforms.

    TRUMP TOUTS UPCOMING PEACE PLAN FOLLOWING MEETING WITH NETANYAHU DESPITE PALESTINIAN OBJECTIONS

    The plan is a basis for negotiations with Israel, Trump officials said, claiming many of the Palestinians' red lines are met, including their calls for a Palestinian state and a capital in parts of East Jerusalem.

    The vision calls for more than doubling the amount of territory the Palestinians control.

    The plan also includes a map of a contiguous Palestinian state in the West Bank, with a proposed tunnel to connect the West Bank and Gaza strip. There would also be land swaps south of Gaza to give the Palestinians more territory.

    This is the first time Israel has agreed to a Palestinian state with defined borders.

    A small strip of land between the Egyptian border and the proposed land swap areas south of Gaza would remain Israeli territory and be subject to Israeli security control. This was requested by Egypt as a buffer against cross-border terrorism.

    As part of the plan, Israel has agreed to halt settlement construction for four years

    Obviously it’s easier said than done.

    considering Israel will never cede air and sea control to Palestine, no peace talk can be taken seriously.

    There is waaaaaaay too money involved in the Israeli-Palestine conflict to solve it.

    It's a multi-billion dollar industry, both sides will make sure peace doesn't happen because war money is so entrenched.

    This.

    mid they can’t freely leave when they want to, or freely trade with other nations, they won’t be a real country.

    it’s one big Warsaw ghetto. Or open air prison.

    Wouldn't it be easier to simply deport the "Palestinians" (Arabs) to the Arab states in the region?

    Palestine will never accept any deal outside of death to Jews and Israel is crazy to let them fly planes around them. This’ll go nowhere

    If this is indeed true, this will be at least the 4th time that a two party state has been suggested. They dont want a two party state. They want their OWN country and for Israel to not exist. There is no reasoning with religious zealot idiots.

    Question.

    Has any two-party solution ever offered Palestine sovereignty of their own air and sea?

    Dont know. But all you hear about is a two party state. Its been offered. The Muslim terrorists that run Gaza keep changing the goal posts. They want to wipe them off the map. Honestly, this is a creation of their own doing. I dont feel sorry for the Palestinian people at all. This is what you get when you let terrorists run your shit and use you as a shield. Ill feel sorry for them when they actually kick these religious, backwards, stuck in the dark ages, terrorists out of their land.

    it's never been offered. You need to take your blinders off.

    You can't have a state without that state even having control over it's own air and sea.

    Edit : maybe add to OP the proposed delimitations of the territory Trump posted on Twitter. Does this look like a country to anyone ? Its laughable.



    Why would you massively deport people living in their homes ? Btw, it has already been done in the past.

    The 1948 Palestinian exodus, also known as the Nakba (Arabic: النكبة‎, al-Nakbah, literally "disaster", "catastrophe", or "cataclysm"),[1]occurred when more than 700,000 Palestinian Arabs — about half of prewar Palestine's Arab population — fled or were expelled from their homes, during the 1948 Palestine war.[2]Between 400 and 600 Palestinian villageswere sacked during the war, while urban Palestine was almost entirely extinguished.[3]


    Israel wants either a peace that is very advantageous to them (keeping their settlements, give no water or air space, etc) or to continue settling until they have colonized so much territory that no reversal is possible (which is already the case imo). Palestinians want a fair peace, but they don't realize that, unfortunately, might is right in international relationships ; the West does what it wants & Israeli lobbies control the most powerful Westerb nation.

    It's the fault of Western nations, first with the Belfour agreement in 1917, and then after the WWII when they felt guilty for what happened in Germany.

    Their own fellow Arab and Muslim nations didnt want the Palestinian refugees. They sent them back. Should Israel have just welcomed them back after what happened in 48?

    Israel has won war after war and is actually a civilized country. They should have to ceased anything.
