The question is, could this be how the cabal will spark a world war? Tensions are through the roof, and disinformation is skyrocketing regarding US and Russian relations, all it could theoretically take for the two nations to collide is literally one misreading or one strategically placed ‘misreading.’
US President Donald Trump’s Special Envoy for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt told Arab foreign ministers at the Arab Summit in Jordan Wednesday that Trump is committed to reaching a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians and that such an agreement would “reverberate” throughout the Middle East and the world.
Greenblatt, who in a rare move for a US official attended the summit in the Jordanian Dead Sea resort of Sweimeh, albeit as an “observer,” met with the foreign ministers of Jordan, Egypt and Qatar on the sidelines of the conference, as well as with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
During those meetings, Greenblatt “reaffirmed President Trump’s personal interest in achieving a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians” and “highlighted the important role regional partners can play in the pursuit of peace,” according to a statement from the US Embassy in Jordan.
Greenblatt also said that he was “not in the region to impose ideas or peace plans on others” but to hear the ideas of regional stakeholders and the role they “can play in the pursuit of peace,” while also reiterating the US’s belief that a peace deal can only be achieved through direct bilateral negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians.
Arab leaders on Wednesday relaunched a peace plan that offers Israel full ties in exchange for Palestinian statehood, signaling to President Donald Trump that they are ready to engage if he tries to broker a broader Mideast peace.
Host Jordan said the one-day Arab summit held on the shores of the Dead Sea sent a “message of peace” — though one that could put new pressure on Israel to withdraw from lands it occupied in the 1967 Mideast war.
The gathering came ahead of White House meetings in coming weeks between Trump and three Arab leaders — Jordan’s King Abdullah II, Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The trio met on the sidelines of the summit to consolidate positions ahead of the White House meetings, officials said.
In reaffirming the 2002 Arab Peace Initiative, the summit undercut Israel’s proposal of a regional peace in which normalization with some Arab countries would precede a deal with the Palestinians. Abbas has vehemently opposed this idea, fearing it would further weaken Palestinian negotiating positions.
The Palestinians want to set up a state in the West Bank, Gaza Strip and east Jerusalem, lands Israel captured in 1967.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said he is willing to negotiate the terms of Palestinian statehood, but rejects a partition of Jerusalem and, like his predecessors, has expanded Israeli settlements on occupied lands.
