Imposing Mandated Solutions Marks Trump’s Fresh Thinking for Middle East

A hopeful world begins to embrace the United States “Peace to Prosperity” plan architected by Jared Kushner to rekindle efforts to bring peace and stability to the Israeli-Palestinian question. Beyond the Middle East, Paraguay, Denmark, Chile, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Japan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Austria, Australia, India, France, Italy, Brazil, Colombia, Morocco and Poland have expressed positivity to the US proposal. Kushner has reportedly briefed the plan to at least 190 ambassadors as the US continues to seek global support.
More significantly, within the Middle East, key nations among the US regional coalition including Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates have embraced the initiative. 
Buried between the lines of the 181-page document is a strategy of imposing a solution upon everyone in the region. It’s a mandate about who gets to be in charge, a solution with much more in common with the Roman Empire’s practices of appointing provincial kings and governors to manage unruly hinterlands.

Kushner’s vision seeks to impose stability by tapping into the conflict weary desires of neighboring nations in the region at the cost of throwing the aspirations of Palestinian militants under the bus. This is a stark reversal of fortune for militant Palestinians, who have hoped to drive the Israelis from the area since 1949. They have predictably ejected the US plan.

The US hopes to replace the endless war scenario with a tri-party regional caretaker design involving the governments of Israel, Jordan and Egypt who would accept responsibility for maintaining peace and security while the Palestinians are forced to denounce all rights to sovereign independence and defense for an undetermined and possibly indefinite future. In exchange, the US offers a hope filled carrot to the Palestinians in the form of a plan to develop their territory into a self-sustaining economic island.
It’s a lot to ask for all involved.
The plan hinges on a security burden that will be imposed on Israel, Jordan and Egypt to co-govern the Palestinians. It won’t exactly be a walk in the park to get Hamas to lay down arms, certainly not peacefully. Nor will it be that easy to lay down decades of cultural animus. This is asking these three governments to engage in a multi-decade social engineering proxy mission for the United States. I admit that I am bothered a little by the fact that the document implies this will happen but is silent about how it will happen. 
It’s kind of the elephant in the room as you read the pages of the proposal. I realized this is fresh thinking and it’s a long way from something that approaches implementation. But this aspect of how to make the US sponsored security by proxy work must be addressed in a more concrete fashion before the forces there are going to seek to undermine and torpedo this initiative can organize themselves. 

I raise the caution that this is yet another slap in the face to the regional ambitions of Iran, who also oppose the initiative. There’s a race against the clock here and my advice to the Trump administration is you better make sure to stay ahead of the curve.

The plan also hinges on economic growth in this new Palestine to be viable. My impression of Kushner’s design is that it is a bit weak in this area. There is certainly a lot of attention to detail in terms of building new infrastructure for Palestine in the form of ports and transportation corridors. But the thing I did not see was a commitment by the United States to guarantee favored nation trading status for this Palestinian economic zone. Nor did I see any plans addressing how the US, and I do believe this is our burden in this arrangement for this to work, to attract investor to this Palestinian Zone by the international economy. 
This only works if this zone becomes more than a local economic center struggling to survive in the face of other economic centers in the other emerging nations in its neighborhood. It’ll take making The Palestinian Zone a vital element of the global supply chain to create the kind of codependency necessary to make it important for the world to want this to succeed; otherwise, it’s just lip service.
My gut says it behooves the Trump Administration to be more proactive about explaining to everyone in the region who must be part of making this work how investing in a Palestinian Economic Zone will benefit them and their aspiration’s to ascend from emerging economy status to first world economy status. If the US can come up with a believable roadmap for that, then I think we’re talking.
Overall, there’s some fresh thinking going on here and I believe that the concept of a protectorate zone managed by regional proxies has promise, certainly better promise than perpetual Antifada. But historically, this is still a quagmire that goes back to Biblical times.

[…] Middle East Peace Plan – One listener writes – I’m an Israeli Jew. I want to have peace. My Palestinian neighbors have rejected any peace offer we have made since 1948. How can we have peace when our neighbors want conflict? Kushner’s vision seeks to impose stability by tapping into the conflict weary desires of neighboring nations in the region at the cost of throwing the aspirations of Palestinian militants under the bus. This is a stark reversal of fortune for militant Palestinians, who have hoped to drive the Israelis from the area since 1949. They have predictably ejected the US plan.

RINOs and America Firsters Wage War over GOP Control

RINOs want to do what RINOs do best: avoid conflict, cower, surrender, and attack fellow Patriots at the expense of the Party. America has only one option to win this war against Communism that we are perilously close to losing. It’s time to stand up and fight. If RINOs can’t stomach the final battle America Firsters are about to wage, the RNC will have a choice to make…

The AMA’s Misinformation Media Campaign on Ivermectin is Harming Americans

After Dr. McCullough’s public statement with Dan Ball, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons came out with a letter directly to the American Medical Association calling out their irresponsible statements to Americans. The AMA does not produce evidence reviews of guidelines panels, and thus is far beyond the guardrails of their mission in trying to…

Organized Scientific Fraud: SARS-CoV-2 is an Unrestricted Bioweapon

Organized Scientific Fraud: SARS-CoV-2 is an Unrestricted Bioweapon

SARS2 is not a traditional bioweapon. It’s a product of CCP’s long-term strategy. It generates more damage but is more hidden. The principle is “looks like natural occurring,” and the best way to recognize it from the lab is that it’s inconsistent with nature evolution principles. Using misinformation and lies to drive people’s attention and waste time is another…

America May Never Build Another New Nuclear Power Plant Because Of This Fraud

The purpose of his work is to save thousands of lives, through more widespread use of radiation therapy, and to save billions of dollars needlessly trying to protect us from insignificant radiation that not only isn’t harmful, but in fact, is helpful. The lack of ethics in science has grown to the detriment of all science. In this case, the ramifications have had deadly consequences…

Vulture Nations Circling the United States

Here is what we know about bullies, whether in the schoolyard or internationally: when you don’t fight back, they get even more aggressive. Think of England’s Neville Chamberlain giving up Czechoslovakia to Hitler to achieve what he called “peace in our time.” What did Hitler do? Invade Poland. When you stand up to bullies, they back down…

Mask and Vaccine Mandates to Eviction Moratoria: A Right to Due Process

Due Process is being violated almost every day at some level within the United States. From mask and vaccine mandates to eviction moratoria, from lockdowns to declarations of “essential businesses”, these are deprivations of either liberty or property without due process of law. Healthcare laws, vehicle standards, even the political primaries, are designed to deprive you of your life, liberty, or property…

The War Between Nationalists and Globalists

While the Globalists are intertwining all aspects of human activity – nothing will work without the other, the media divides the narrative into sound bites so you will never see the connection. By calling Americans “domestic terrorists,” the FBI can collaborate with the CIA, DHS, etc., to dream up cases against Americans who do not follow the hate America narrative…

Vaccine Report Card From CDC/FDA is Long Overdue!

The CDC/FDA holds all the data on differential efficacy of the vaccines and at 8 months into the public program, the agency’s vaccine report card to America is long overdue. Americans are frustrated with the lack of transparency and want to make the most efficacious choice of vaccines and seek to understand how to take a shot and avoid the disastrous safety events of neurologic damage, myocarditis, blood clots, and paralysis…
