Israel’s Future with Trump’s Peace Plan

much awaited “deal of the century” from the Middle East team of President
Trump has brought about a whirlwind of speculation. But one of the most
fascinating aspects of the speculation is the expectation of some that in the
end, Israel will end up annexing parts of Judea and Samaria.
over 100 years of proof that the two-state solution is a failure, there are
voices still unwilling to accept that the best solution moving forward includes
Israel finally applying sovereignty to areas in Judea & Samaria.
of Sovereignty is a Real Possibility
potential sovereignty solution in areas of Judea & Samaria is so real, that
the two-state solution proponents are scared. That is a huge success for those
of us who have been promoting sovereignty as a solution for years. It was never
seriously considered as a solution. Now it is. Watching this video gives me much
pride in seeing that finally, Israeli diplomacy is going in the right direction.
Let the two-state proponents be scared. We have been scared about the two-state
solution for decades.
is sad to see so many people who believe they are rational and intelligent
people still hold on to a solution that was never accepted by the Arabs, time
after time. It is time to move on.
Israel Policy Forum, and other two-state solution proponents, are doing Israel
more hard than good by actively working against the Trump administration and the
Israeli government potential intent to apply Israeli sovereignty in Judea &
most of the Israeli public consider sovereignty a potential solution, as well as
PM Netanyahu, as he hinted before the elections, and the Trump administration
supports it, then who exactly are these two-state solution proponents
representing? They are actively going against the will of the Israeli public and
undermining Israeli democracy!
No, we are taking the idea of "West
Bank" annexation very seriously!
Israel Policy Forum
If you aren’t taking the possibility of annexation of the West Bank
seriously, then you’re doing it wrong. RT #AnnexationWatch
Amen to that! @IsraelPolicy4m move on.
The 2-state solution was stillborn, never had a chance since the Arabs have
always said NO. There is NO partner. U also ignore the fact that both the
Palestinian Authority & Hamas persecute their own people so 2 state solution
is a disaster.

Annexation of the Golan and President Trump
took over the Golan in the last 2 days of the defensive war of 1967. It had been
occupied for 19 years by Syria. For nearly the entire period, Israeli farmers
endured sharpshooters who wreaked havoc on the fields and farmers below. After
Israel took over the Golan, there was nobody who believed that Israeli villages
actually lived under these absurd circumstances. The danger was extreme, but
somehow the Israeli farmers persisted. Israel annexed the area around 13 years
later, but it was not internationally recognized – until President Trump made
the bold move a few weeks ago.
area of Judea and Samaria is different. The Golan has very few Arabs. Judea and
Samaria has around 500,000 Arabs. Some argue that there are more. If Israel were
to apply sovereignty in these areas, would the Arabs then have the right to
vote? Some say that the advantages of sovereignty outweigh the negatives of mass
absorption of Arabs.
my opinion, the main detail that is overlooked is the ability of the State of
Israel to encourage immigration of the Arabs who would like to move out of the
State of Israel. Most of the Arabs who want to stay are not so dangerous. The
real dangerous ones need to be neutralized. But there is a group of Arabs that
some say numbers more than 100,000 that would like to move out of the area of
the Land of Israel. That could have a profound impact on the demographic
