There is no doubt that President Trump has more support for Israel than any other president before him. The President has since recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and even has praised Israel’s leader on more than one occasion.
The Middle East continues to be a hotbed of trouble as nations around the country continue to threaten Israel on more than one front. It was hopeful that there would be some kind of stability seen through the recent months.
President Trump has been vocal about Netanyahu and his attempt to unify the people and build a lasting government.
The President has said that “It looked like a total win for Netanyahu, who’s a great guy, he’s a great guy.” He has also said that “And now they’re back in the debate, and they’re back in the election stage. That is too bad. Because they don’t need this. I mean they’ve got enough turmoil over there, it’s a tough place.”
The issue is that Netanyahu had failed to come up with a coalition government that includes the Likud party and religious allies and nationalists.
The talks broke up concerning the issue of allowing ultra-orthodox men from being exempt from being drafted for military service. All the Israeli parliament, the Knesset, and other decided by vote to meet again on September 17.
The Israeli government has been fractured on certain issues and Netanyahu is trying to fix the problem.
All of these scenes within the political makeup of Israel took place right before Jared Kushner was scheduled to visit and promote his plan for peace in the Middle East. The peace plan could be in jeopardy if the nation of Israel cannot get together and form a workable government.
If they fail to form one, there could be another election to follow in the same year something that has not happened in the nations.
Recently, Netanyahu has shown a map provided by Trump that makes the Golan Heights part of the nation of Israel. The dispute over who governs the Golan Heights has long been a debated issue since its foundation days.
It is thought that Netanyahu pulled out the map to help ease tensions regarding the uncertainty of Israel’s governmental makeup and ability to work together. On the map, it shows that President Trump had written the word, “Nice.”
The region was captured by Israel from Syria when Syria attacked Israel in 1967. Since that day disputes have risen over which nation actually owns the territory. President Trump has already recognized the Golan Heights as being part of Israel which has been something other presidents would not have done.
If the leaders of Israel fail to come together, it could mean trouble for the people. The now friendly leaders of Israel might be replaced by ones that are not so favorable to the American President.
It also could spell disaster for the peace plan that Kushner is trying to present to the people of Israel.
The move to unify a coalition of leaders into one government would only serve to strengthen the people and strengthen the ties with the United States.
President Trump has written, “Hoping things will work out with Israel’s coalition formation and Bibi and I can continue to make the alliance between America and Israel stronger than ever. A lot more to do!”
Kushner’s plan will focus on the benefits economically that Israel and the Palestinians would have by living in peace with each other.
However, the Palestinians have already chosen to not speak with American diplomats and are planning on boycotting the Bahrain conference.
The other nations that are a part of the conference have all stated that they are still planning on being in attendance whether the Palestinians are present or not.
Israel is ready for peace and is willing once again work with the nations that surround their borders. President Trump and his staff want the region to be secure for all people groups so growth and economics can continue to get better for everyone.
Kushner’s peace plan will take its place in a long line of peace plans from other people.
The question is which side will truly honor the plan and not use it as an excuse to cause more harm to people around them.
