Trump Undecided on When to Release Middle East Peace Plan

President Donald Trump hasn’t decided whether to unveil his Middle East peace plan before or after Israeli elections set for next month, pecial envoy Jason Greenblatt said. Greenblatt, along with Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, has been drafting a Middle East peace proposal for the last two years.

Greenblatt gave no indication of what the political plan would look like, but said Trump would have to “decide soon” whether to roll it out before the Israeli elections or after -- and whether to wait until after a new government has been formed.

Those elections are set for Sept. 17 and surveys indicate a close race between blocs led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and former military chief Benny Gantz. An election earlier this year ended in stalemate after Netanyahu failed to form a governing coalition.

Kushner promoted the economic component of his proposal in Bahrain in June, but the event was deliberately short on key political questions, and the conference didn’t include Palestinian officials.

1. It doesn't matter when it's rolled out, it's 100% 1 sided and will die on the announcement.

We know what it will say since it comes from Kushner - Israel can build settlements anywhere they want and Arabs can't stop it. Arabs have no rights and are virtual slaves in the Israeli state. That is the plan, although they may try to hide some of the rank disparity, although I don't know if they will even try. This is all just a sham to get little murderer to help keep them in power every way possible.

2. it's probably so fucked up he's waiting for the next mass right wing terrorist attack...

before he releases it. Everyone will be focused on the attack and no one will see noticed just how he completely screws over the Palestinians.
