Algemeiner Editor-in-Chief: Trump Peace Plan Likely to Be Very Different From Previous Initiatives
President Donald Trump’s upcoming peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict will likely be very different from previous such attempts, said Algemeiner editor-in-chief Dovid Efune on Thursday.
Speaking to i24 News, Efune said of the Trump plan, “We’ve suspected for a long time that it’s going to be quite different from what people are expecting. When we’ve spoken about peace plans in the past, typically there’s this land-for-peace equation, there’s a two-state solution, there is a framework which we’ve come to expect over decades. I’d be very surprised if its going to be along those lines.”
“I think we’re going to see a regional initiative,” he added. “We’ve had assurances time and time again from different members of the Trump administration that they would not be looking to predetermine the outcome. They won’t be coming to the table and saying, ‘Here’s what the results should be.’”
“It’s about creating a framework,” said Efune. “It’s about empowering, creating incentives, and trying to broaden the issue to regional peace and not just the Israeli-Palestinian discussion.”
