French President Emmanuel Macron intends to tackle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with a peace plan of his own if the United States fails to do so after the November 6 midterm elections. France relayed its intention to intervene in the process to members of the Israeli parliament last weekRumors about the details of President Trump’s peace plan between Israel and the Palestinians swirl incessantly, but almost no tangible details have surfaced so far. Both Donald Trump and Jared Kushner have an excellent relationship with Israeli PM Netanyahu, and have almost certainly worked out something that he will sign off on by this point.
“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.” Daniel 9:27 (KJV)
But the willingness of France to step up and be an end times player at this late date is quite interesting, what a coup it would be to pull that off.
FRANCE TO OFFER ITS OWN ISRAELI-PALESTINIAN PEACE PLAN IF U.S. FAILS
FROM THE JERUSALEM POST: In a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in late September, US President Donald Trump announced that his administration would unveil a comprehensive peace plan within two to four months. Israeli leaders and the Palestinian Authority have been anxiously awaiting the plan, which as Trump has indicated, will entail ‘tough’ concessions from both sides.
Judy Dempsey, a Senior Fellow at Carnegie Europe and editor of its Strategic Europe Blog, told The Media Line that “the international community has been watching nervously as the peace process in the Middle East stagnates. If nothing else, Macron’s decision to step into the process raises the pressure to get things going.
Macron says he regrets Trump’s Jerusalem decision
Macron and Trump have two very different ideas about how peace in the Middle East needs to come about. President Trump, obviously, is strongly for Israel and recognized Jerusalem as it’s capital, something that France’s Macron absolutely does not agree with. Macron is a globalist who thinks that Israel should be divided and given to the Palestinians.
“However, Macron’s announcement shows that the European Union hasn’t gotten anywhere with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. EU leaders believed America had to lead the negotiations. They stuck to the two-state solution without trying to implement it and they had no clout over the settlements or the PA,” Dempsey continued.
The EU has not taken a balanced position on the peace process, he explained. “By maintaining such strong support for the PA, while largely ignoring its violations, it has alienated Israel.”
James Moran, a senior Research Fellow at the Center for European Policy Studies and a former European ambassador to Egypt, told The Media Line that while the French “announcement adds political clout to the languishing issue, the substance of any peace plan coming from Macron would be very close to the classical frame of the two-state solution, without much innovation.
“Europeans are trusted by Palestinians. They are not, however, trusted by the Israelis. This is especially true of Netanyahu who, now and since the late ’90s, has not shown himself to be at all prepared to make advancements on the peace front. Instead, he has supported a hardline approach. The only party that can pressure him is the US,” Moran continued. READ MORE
