White House: Israel TV story on peace plan not accurate, speculation not helpful


(Worthy News) - The Trump administration on Wednesday dismissed as “inaccurate” an Israeli TV report that said its forthcoming peace plan would offer Palestinians a state in most of the West Bank, with parts of East Jerusalem as its capital.

Channel 13 reported hours earlier that a “senior American” official had said Trump’s peace proposal would provide for Jerusalem to be divided, with Israel maintaining sovereignty in west Jerusalem, parts of east Jerusalem and the “holy basin,” including the Old City and its immediate environs. However, it added that the “holy basin” area would be “jointly run” with the Palestinians, Jordan and possibly other countries.

“While I respect @BarakRavid, his report on Israel’s Ch. 13 is not accurate,” tweeted Jason Greenblatt, the White House special envoy for Mideast peace, referring to the reporter who broke the story. “Speculation about the content of the plan is not helpful. Very few people on the planet know what is in it.” [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. I'm for a Israel one state solution that allows for "law abiding Palestinians" to retain their private property rights in Israel Including the right to enjoy along with the people of israel the religious sites important to them to. They must become Israeli citizens
    to retain and enjoy these rights. And have a say a ownership in the government of israel so they can be proud of it..
