US peace plan rumors: No Palestinian state

Rumors are again circulating about the U.S. peace plan for Israel and Palestinians with several European leaders lining up against the initiative as it allegedly stops short of offering statehood to Palestinians, The Washington Post reported on Sunday.

U.S. President Donald Trump has long said he will propose the “deal of the century” which would be revealed after the Israeli elections. Though it has yet to be officially presented, the Washington Post has reported that it includes economic incentives to the Palestinians but not an official state.

“The economic plan only works if the region supports it. This is a very important part of the overall equation,” a U.S. official told the Post.

Dozens of former European politicians published a call for the European Union to reject any plan that does not include a two-state solution.

“Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories are sliding into a one-state reality of unequal rights. This cannot continue. For the Israelis, for the Palestinians or for us in Europe,” they said in a letter published in the Guardian newspaper. “Failing to seize this opportunity, at a point in time when this order is unprecedentedly challenged, would have far-reaching negative consequences.”

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said during the election he will not cede any portion of the West Bank to the Palestinians. And, on Friday, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appeared to suggest the American plan may back that as they “represent a significant change from the model that’s been used.”

“Pompeo’s remarks are the latest signal that the Trump peace plan, if it’s ever presented, will bear no resemblance to previous models of a two-state solution. Instead, the plan seems designed to perpetuate isolated areas of limited Palestinian autonomy under overall Israeli control, including annexed settlements,” said Dan Shapiro, a former U.S. ambassador to Israel.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas would reject a one-state solution and a lack of settlement annexation. Nevertheless, a Palestinian advisor told a Russian newspaper the president is willing to meet with Netanyahu with no preconditions.

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
