The U.S. ambassador to Israel has warned Israel against its actions in tandem with the Middle Eastern Plan. He has asked Israel not to move unilaterally annex territory in the West Bank because it could jeopardize future U.S. recognition of Israel’s sovereignty in the occupied areas.
At the moment, Israel has not put down a proper annexation plan and map that defines the area that they would annex. Unless that happens, US officials are not happy with the Trump- Netanyahu bonding. From the beginning, it seems Trump’s plan has been to give maximum control of Palestinian lands to Israel. It actually allows Israel to annex about 30% of the West Bank. According to the Israeli government, this territory is critical to ensuring the country’s security. Also quoting biblical importance, the Netanyahu government has allowed for extensive expansion of Israeli settlements in the area in recent years.
The Trump driven Middle Eastern Plan literally crushes the possibility of a contiguous independent Palestinian state, as it allows for the Israeli annexation of all of the Jewish settlements.
David Friedman has rightly mentioned the media that nothing is stopping Israel from keep it side of the bargain and it does not have to wait till March 02 voting cycle, which is what Netanyahu is doing as of now. Friedman has cleared any confusion saying that the U.S. recognition of the Peace Plan only comes after the U.S. and Israel convened to agree to final, detailed maps. This is saving grace for Palestinians and all those who are in opposition of a plan that is heavily tilted towards benefiting the dictator that Benjamin Netayahu has been over two decades in Israel.
