Over the past couple of days, both Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and “Blue and White” leader Benny Gantz referred to US President Donald Trump’s peace plan as historic.

Netanyahu said of Trump’s “deal of the century” that “an opportunity such as this comes once in history, and cannot be missed.” Likewise, Gantz stated that “the peace plan devised by President Trump will go down in history as a meaningful landmark.”

As far as we are aware at press time, Trump’s peace plan presents a breathtaking opportunity for Israel according to the following leaked points: Israeli sovereignty over all legal Jewish settlements in the West Bank; Israeli annexation of 30% of West Bank territory, including the Jordan Valley; Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount, under Israeli sovereignty; Palestinians must recognize Israel as a Jewish state; Palestinians will not have the “right of return” of “refugees”; Israel will be allowed free military action in all Palestinian land.
