True to his nature, US President Donald Trump is planning to take a radically different approach to brokering peace between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs.
According to senior American officials who spoke to The New York Times, the Trump White House is currently putting the final touches on its Middle East peace proposal.
Unlike past proposals from presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, Trump's plan will reportedly eschew broad (read: vague) suggestions and predetermined outcomes.
Rather, it will take head-on the very specific issues currently preventing an agreement and offer very specific solutions to them.
For instance, rather than push off the issue of sovereignty in Jerusalem or call for a vague "fair and just solution" to the "refugee" issue, Trump's plan is said to contain very real, very practical proposals for each.
Also notable is that Trump's plan reportedly does not call for the creation of a two-state solution, though its proposals do open up the possibility for such an outcome.
