Trump ontvouwt vredesplan Midden-Oosten
January 29, 2020 - Het vredesplan voor het Midden-Oosten dat president Donald Trump presenteerde, steunt de Israëlische positie op bijna alle contoversiële kwesties in het deceniia oude conflict.
Where previous presidents tried to cajole Israel and the Palestinians into compromising on thorny issues like the borders of a future Palestinian state, the status of Jerusalem and the fate of refugees, Trump’s Mideast team largely adopted the Israeli position.
As a result, the Palestinians have angrily rejected the plan, and the international community appears unlikely to rally around it.
Trump set in motion a four-year timeline for Palestinians to agree to a security arrangement with Israel, halt attacks by the Islamist militant group Hamas and set up governing institutions in order to establish a Palestinian state.
The U.S. plan represented the most detailed attempt to break the deadlock between Israel and the Palestinians in several years.
