The traditional two-state solution for solving the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has died another death with President-elect Donald Trump about to take hold of the reigns at the White House on January 20th next year. And Jews inhabiting West Bank settlements are celebrating it. Why? Donald Trump says the settlements are not “an obstacle to peace.” That’s according to Trump’s Israeli advisor, American Jason Greenblatt, as reported by Israel Army Radio. A surprising 17% of West Bank Jews also have a U.S. citizenship. Greenblatt used to be one of them. He once served in the Israeli Army guarding a Jewish settlement in the West Bank.
Furthermore, Donald Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, is poised to become a member of the Trump brigade, perhaps as an envoy in the Middle East according to yesterday’s New York Times. Orthodox Jew Jared and wife Ivanka were married Jewish style and practice kosher.Some Israeli Jews are even talking about Israel annexing the West Bank. Now that’s getting a little too far ahead of things. And some are saying there’s never going to be a Palestinian state. I beg to differ; it’s in the Jewish Bible–Bible prophecy that is.
The time is right for an alternate two-state solution to come forth and gain some attention. See my book, Palestine Is Coming: The Revival of Ancient Philistia.
