Washington - The Trump administration is finishing up its Middle East peace plan and intends to make it public soon, The New York Times reported.

According to the report published Sunday, the plan does not call for a two-state solution.

The White House must now figure out how to present the plan so that it is not immediately rejected by the Palestinians, the newspaper reported, citing three unnamed senior administration officials.

An unnamed senior aide to President Donald Trump compared the plan to Waze, the Israeli-developed traffic navigation software.

According to the report, the officials said the plan does not have a set of guiding principles. It gives the outlines of a peace plan and leaves the Israelis and the Palestinians to fill in the details. Also, they said, the plan also does not specifically call for a two-state solution as a goal nor for a “fair and just solution” for Palestinian refugees, though it will offer suggestions on both points.

The aides told The Times that the document proposes solutions to all the key disputes: borders, security, refugees and the status of Jerusalem.

The Palestinians have said they will not consider a U.S.-proposed peace plan due to their anger over Trump’s announcement recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and his intent to move the U.S. Embassy there from Tel Aviv in May. Netanyahu is less likely to be willing to make compromises, as he faces early elections due to coalition disputes and fears fallout from possible corruption charges. The plan also comes as Trump has begun the process of dealing with North Korea.

The report points out that no one outside of the Trump administration has seen the plan document, and that the people who wrote it — Jared Kushner, Jason Greenblatt and David Friedman – had no previous experience in diplomacy. But the three men reportedly met last week with Netanyahu for several hours while he was in Washington, D.C., to address the annual AIPAC policy conference and meet with Trump.

With this peace plan how much pieces does Israel have to give up??? There is only one peace plan to the Arabs and that is the disappearance of Israel. When will the real Israel stand up and become Israel.

Cant the world see after 70 years that the so called ' palestinians' will NEVER agree to any peace settlement.It's against their 'religion' to cede any land to infidels . Until they have a religious reformation ,as happened in europe ,there will never be peace with their expansionist warlike religious policy.As i've predicted ,they have begun the takeover of europe , as they seek world domination.

No need to worry about the palis rejecting it because it doesn’t recommend two states; they’d reject it anyway no matter what it was, as they’ve done with every single offer made to them until now. They’re not interested in a peace deal, they’re interested in all of Israel with the Jews gone cv. May they all go meet their 70virgins....
