Six-Day War (Not 800 x500!)An American-born Israeli author is confident that a coming Middle East peace plan from the Trump administration will not include a so-called two-state solution.

Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump's son-in-law and a senior adviser, is keeping a tight lip as to the details of the Israeli-Palestinian peace plan.

It will be unveiled sometime after Ramadan, which this year ends on June 4.

Despite the secrecy so far, David Rubin, the former mayor of the Samarian town of Shiloh, says he doubts the plan will harm Israel’s security.

"I know from all the reports that have come out,” Rubin recently told American Family Radio, “that this plan does not include a two-state solution.”

Trump at Western WallA White House-based “peace plan” for Israel and the Palestinians dates back to the Carter administration and the Camp David Accords, a peace treaty signed by Israel and Egypt, in 1978. 

Despite strong ties with the U.S., Israel is viewed by many countries as a “Zionist” villain while the Palestinians are routinely described as oppressed victims and even“freedom fighters” seeking their own land.

President Trump has angered the Palestinians after moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem and declaring it Israel's historic capital, while the Palestinians demand control of the historic city that is currently divided.  

Rubin says the Palestinians have already rejected the plan even though they yet to see it.  

“Fortunately,” says Rubin, “the chances of the Palestinian Authority accepting any plan that doesn't give them an independent state or sovereignty over Jerusalem, or at least part of Jerusalem, they see it as a non-starter."
