Donald Trump Signals Willingness to Engage Arab Israeli Peace Effort…

This tweet from President-elect Donald Trump directly implies his willingness to lean into the problem:

trump-banner-6-flagstrump-tweet-israel-un

And President-Elect Donald Trump is not alone carrying optimism:

CAIRO —  Egypt says its president received a call from President-elect Donald Trump in which they both agreed to give the incoming U.S. administration a chance to try and resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The call came hours after Egypt indefinitely postponed a U.N. vote on a Security Council resolution criticizing Israeli settlements following pressure from Israel and Trump, who had called on members to veto it.

A statement from the Egyptian presidency says the two men spoke by phone early Friday and agreed on “the importance of giving a chance for the new American administration to deal in a comprehensive way with the different aspects of the Palestinian issue with the aim of achieving a comprehensive and a final resolution.” (read more)

After candidate Donald Trump and President Fattah Abdel al-Sisi met in New York, the secular-minded Egyptian leader was very warm in his praise of Trump after the election:

“I believe that President Trump will be vigorously engaged with the issues in the region,” el-Sisi said. “As a matter of fact, Trump has shown deep and great understanding of what is taking place in the region as a whole and Egypt in particular. I am looking forward and expecting more support and reinforcement of our bilateral relations.”  (link)

For several years we have discussed how President Obama’s ideological support of the Muslim Brotherhood (via Morsi) was summarily rebuked by the majority of the Egyptian people who saw themselves become victims to Obama’s policies.

The consequential outcomes all over the middle east stemmed from Obama’s fuse-lighting during his 2009 Cairo University speech, which ultimately empowered Muslim extremists and gave birth to the “Islamist spring” in 2010.

Fattah al-Sisi has been one of the few voices within the Mid-East, along with Jordan’s King Abdullah (both pictured below), who have consistently led with secular governance and minority religious protection.

sisi and abdullah ii

In short, both Abdullah and Sisi have been lone calm voices amid a fury of chaos unleashed by Obama’s policy.

At the core of their leadership, comparing views and perspectives toward national governance as it relates to larger global issues, both President al-Sisi and President Trump have much in common.  Hopefully, the commonality portends a very real and reasonable realignment within the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

For those unfamilar with how much Sisi has done to try and stop extremists within the middle east, here’s a summary of action taken by al-Sisi showing his commitment to eliminating extremism – Originally outlined January 2015:

el sisi 3Some western media have begun to take note of Egypt’s President Fatah al-Sisi who challenged the larger Muslim religion to confront violent religious extremism.

However, with this recent attention few are paying attention beyond the words to the concrete actions al-Sisi has quietly taken in the past eighteen months to put action where his mouth is.

So allow us to highlight some of the actionable items that showcase a man of action behind his words. Since reluctantly taking power in 2013 Fattah al-Sisi has:

◾Disbanded the Muslim Brotherhood as a political terror entity. (link) (link)
◾Arrested those who burned churches and attacked Coptic Christians. (link) (link)
◾Jailed or banished the extremist forces. (link)
◾Supported Israel’s right to exist and defend it’s borders. (link) (link)
◾Defeated Hamas in the border region. (link) (link)
◾Destroyed the border terror tunnels used by Hamas (link) (link)
◾Pressured Hamas and the PA to negotiate the ceasefire, and forced the PA and Hamas to assemble ONE negotiating group for their interests. (link) (link)
◾Fought extremism in the Sinai region, and fought against ISIS infiltration.
◾Fought the Libyan new al-Qaeda network “Libyan Dawn”. (link)
◾Charged and prosecuted the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood, who fled to Qatar. (link)
◾Followed the MB to Qatar and initiated sanctions against Qatar until they stopped financing and harboring terror. (link)
◾Formed a coalition against Qatar including the UAE and Saudi Arabia who withdrew their ambassadors and isolated Qatar in the region. (link) (link)
◾Won reelection with almost 70% of the vote. (link) (link ) (link)
◾Holds an 80%+ job approval rating among ALL Egyptians. (link)
◾Shut down Qatar financed Al Jazerra propaganda machine. (link)
◾Supported the framework for a new constitution which supports minority protections. (link)
◾Won a victory against Qatar as they finally conceded and stopped safeguarding terrorists. Sending the MB leadership to the new safe harbor of Turkey. (link)
◾United the moderate (non violent) Arab coalition, the Gulf Security Council, and constructed a unity principle that supports the safety of Jordan and formed a coalition to defend if needed. (link)
◾Faced down and quietly defeated Turkey’s bid for a security council seat in the United Nations. (link) (link)
◾Negotiated a safe passage coalition for Israel and Greece to form an energy based economic trade agreement.
◾Continues to fight the Islamist extremists inside Libya. (link) (link)
◾Continues to fight ISIS in the Northern Sinai region. (link) (link) (link)
◾Expanded the border safety zone with Gaza to insure greater control and protection from weapons smuggling. (link)

el-sisiDespite President Obama undermining Egypt, that list is just a few of the actions al-Sisi took.

Then he boldy stood in front of the heads of the country’s leading Muslim groups and called  for them to confront the misleading ideologies harming Islam and Muslims worldwide.”

In response to al-Sisi’s speech Al-Azhar stated:

CAIRO: Dar al-Iftaa has responded to President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi’s call for a “religious revolution” by launching a national project aiming to correct the image of Islam through social media, foreign visits, publications, and issuing fatwas that “suit the modern age,” Ibrahim Negm, advisor to the Grand Mufti said in Friday press statements.

“We should closely examine the situation in which we are in. It does not make sense that the thought we sanctify pushes this entire nation to become a source of apprehension, danger, murder and destruction in the entire world,” Sisi said in a Thursday speech before Egypt’s top religious leaders on the occasion of the Birth of Prophet Mohamed.

“I am not saying the religion [itself]. I am saying this thought that has been sanctified; texts and thoughts that have been sanctified for hundreds of years. And disagreeing with [these texts and thoughts] has become very difficult. To the extent that [this thought] makes an enemy of the whole world,” Sisi added.

Dar al-Iftaa, Egypt’s government-sponsored religious institution responsible for issuing fatwas and religious opinions, will work to achieve the “highest degree of effective communication” with Muslims in Egypt, Arab countries and the world.

Established in 970, Al-Azhar is the most prestigious Sunni institution in the Islamic world.

Al-Azhar’s newly formed Monitor of Infedilizing Fatwas Dept., which responds to radical Islamists’ fatwas labeling other Muslims apostates, has already issued many articles slamming the “extremist opinions” of “non-specialized” sheikhs that receive the attention of a segment of Muslims.

“You cannot feel what [this thought] is when you are inside it. You have to get out of it, inspect it, and read it with a real enlightened thought. You need to take a strong stance. I am reiterating, we need a religious revolution,” Sisi said in his speech, prompting Al-Azhar scholars to applaud. (read more)

That speech was two years ago.   With the election of President Trump, both nations have the very real potential for something even more astounding to happen.  Something wonderful.

During one of the GOP primary debates Jeb Bush attempted to ridicule Donald Trump by saying that solving the Israeli/Palestinian conflict was not like negotiating some kind of business real estate deal. However, the potential for any peace deal would revolve significantly around “real estate”.

Knowing everything above, and knowing the overarching perspectives behind all of the conflict, and knowing the current issues with the northern Sinai region, and knowing how ultimately all key leadership want a lasting legacy of significance…

…Think about Fattah al-Sisi, Benjamin Netanyahu, Mahmoud Abbas and Donald Trump meeting together in Camp David and finding a real solution possibly including part of the Northern Sinai region.

Lastly, if you think about the current construction enhancements (changes taking place with the Suez Canal zone), there’s an outline -tenuous though it might be- of something entirely possible.

      Israel can no longer trust anyone else to come to their defense or suppress and punish the Palestinians’ aggression.

      Any peace deal will need to put the Palestinians at a distance far enough from Israel that they can no longer reach them with short-range rockets.

      A Palestinian Safe Space in the desert of Saudi Arabia might be a workable solution.

      Israel is for Jews.

      Jordan is for “Palestinians”. ALL of the land now known as “The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan” was mandated by the League of Nations to be the Jewish Homeland.

      Great Britain, charged with encouraging Jewish settlement there, instead gave it to the Hashemites as part of a deal with Abdulaziz bin Abdul Rahman (known to most as Ibn Saud) for British access to oil on the Arabian Peninsula.

      Any Palestinian is already automatically a citizen of Jordan.

      This horse manure about a “Palestinian homeland” isall about (and only about) displacing the Jews of Israel.

      There will never be a two state solution that endures in our present world system, because one of the key tenets of Islam is that land that has been under Islamic control must never be ruled by Infidels. In centuries past, the Holy Land was part of the Ottoman Empire. Thus every believing Muslim is required by their faith to drive Israel into the sea.

      There are certainly Muslims who don’t subscribe to this, just like there are Catholics who practice birth control. But Muslims who don’t subscribe to this are dissenting from a central tenet of their faith, and if they express their dissension in a strict Muslim country or community they won’t live very long.

      I have read that Jimmy Carter asked Arafat why he did not accept the generous terms offered to him and agree to recognize Israel’s right to exist, and he replied, “Because I want to stay alive.”

      All of this will be exposed very quickly by our Potus Elect and his new awesome Secretary of State Mr. Tillerson. The “Palstinians” won’t be able to successfully implement their other Islamic command to engage in “Taquiyya” or lying to the Infidels with our new administration.

      I personally believe this is all leading up to the war described in Psalm 83 and elsewhere throughout the scriptures.

      God has made it very clear that He has a one-state solution planned.

        Nit (that doesn’t alter the thrust of your argument one whit): The Holy Land was under Islamic control long before there was an Ottoman empire. It was conquered by the second Caliph, Umar, who died in 644. The Ottoman Empire is marked as beginning approximately 1299.

        Either way, it’s true that Islam won’t ever accept it having passed out of their control; they’re still ticked about Spain and the Balkans, too.

  16. What if there is a three-state solution? Jordan was originally supposed to be where the Arabs in the area could go, when the partition took place. If Egypt, Jordan, and Israel could agree on dividing up the Arab population, they could let the Arabs decide if they want to be part of Israel or not. Many of the Arabs are already in spaces that are designated as temporary refugee housing, so they could simply be moved to some other housing. There are a lot of Arabs that are already entering and leaving Egypt. Both Egypt and Jordan have cracked down on extremism and terrorism, and are talking about a truly moderate Islam. I can see how this could be considered a real estate transaction. Also, Israel has a bargaining chip, of having found a lot of natural gas near the coastline. A sweetheart deal for Egypt and Jordan, involving natural gas, plus peace treaties that set reasonable boundaries for all three countries, could be quite interesting.

The ones who stayed behind still live in their ancestral homes. Those who didn’t don’t – they live in the refugee camps or in other Arab nations.
      Not all Arabs hate Israelis. About 20% of the Israeli population is Palestinian, and there are several Palestinian Israelis who are Members of the Knesset, the Israeli Parliament.

    Right now, historically and legally – Gaza and West Bank are being illegally occupied by Arabs – and there is only an Armistice allowing them to camp there.

    Israel needs its own land and was granted its own historical land. Israel is as valid as Pakistan and Iraq and the rest of those countries divided by the League of Nations.

    Seems to me that Arabs had a civilization in ancient times, and Mohammad and Islam disrupted it.

Then of course the Israel-Palestinian thing has been brewing since 1948, exacerbated by the 1967 and 1973 wars, the assassination of Anwar Sadat, etc. The Arab world needs first and foremost to unite over the principle of civility and rejection of terrorism, and they need to face up to the reality of the clash of civilizations – in this last case, either the troublemakers are vanquished entirely, or savages destroy the more peaceful advanced culture. The Arab states can’t help but see the writing on the wall – the revolution that Trump is part of, and that revolution in tandem with our war machinery portends a bad end for them, unless they choose to upgrade their civilizations, soon.

      Oil = Power

      Their embrace of Terrorism has grown to the point that (IMO) only three scenarios – short of annihilation – will end it through uncontrollable and irreversible economic consequences that ONLY a complete Muslim Reformation could end:

      The oil is taken from [one or all of] their countries
      The price of oil plummets (e.g., through American Energy Independence)
      The world deducts Import Tariffs on Arab Oil for massive and continuing Terrorist Reparations

      Such a Muslim Reformation would need to recast Islam into a non-violent and non-political belief system that tolerates ALL others and treats those who attempt to impose their violence, their will or their rules on others as terrorists to be eliminated.

        Using religious beliefs for political domination is something that Christians had to forego after centuries of warfare. It is time that Muslims learned this hard lesson, too. Only oil dollars have enabled them to act so outrageously. It is their oil dollars that has bought much of Washington, D.C.

        Key is the oil wealth (and coal and natural gas). AGW, evil CO2, bad carbon is their way to brainwash Americans to do their bidding through endless guilt.

    I suspect the world, ( and most certainly the MSM ) has yet to plumb the depths of the DJT intellect and diplomatic skill ! Nearly a month out from being sworn in yet already tailoring the “mantle of power” to suit his persona !

    Reasons, reasons, reasons. History, history, history. It will come down to the will to power with natural resources, human intelligence, the desire to be inventive and prosper and to do the hard work to make it happen — for good.

    These conditions only come about with the will to follow through — strong military, protected borders. Throw out the failures — beginning with the U.N. — which has become a cry baby organization for failures rather than an organization where the world’s powers can come together to discuss their differences rather than resort to warfare.

    All the good talking and pie-in-the sky ideals cannot make a success of a bad idea. End the U.N. We only want to deal with truly representative governments.

    The Iranian Regime on Israel’s Right to Exist

    Excerpts:
    So, as a reminder to those who argue that Jews should stop worrying so much about people who threaten to kill them, here is some (just some) of what Iran’s leaders, and leaders of its proxy militia, Hezbollah, in Lebanon, have said about Israel:

    Mohammad Khatami, the former president of Iran: “If we abide by real legal laws, we should mobilize the whole Islamic world for a sharp confrontation with the Zionist regime … if we abide by the Koran, all of us should mobilize to kill.” (2000)

    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: “It is the mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to erase Israel from the map of the region.” (2001)

    Hassan Nasrallah, a leader of Hezbollah: “If they [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” (2002)

    Nasrallah: “Israel is our enemy. This is an aggressive, illegal, and illegitimate entity, which has no future in our land. Its destiny is manifested in our motto: ‘Death to Israel.’” (2005)

    Yahya Rahim Safavi, the former commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps: “With God’s help the time has come for the Zionist regime’s death sentence.” (2008)

    Mohammad Hassan Rahimian, Khamenei’s representative to the Moustazafan Foundation: “We have manufactured missiles that allow us, when necessary to replace [sic] Israel in its entirety with a big holocaust.” (2010)

    Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of the Basij paramilitary force: “We recommend them [the Zionists] to pack their furniture and return to their countries. And if they insist on staying, they should know that a time while arrive when they will not even have time to pack their suitcases.” (2011)

    Khamenei: “The Zionist regime is a cancerous tumor and it will be removed.” (2012)

    Ahmad Alamolhoda, a member of the Assembly of Experts: “The destruction of Israel is the idea of the Islamic Revolution in Iran and is one of the pillars of the Iranian Islamic regime. We cannot claim that we have no intention of going to war with Israel.” (2013)

    Nasrallah: “The elimination of Israel is not only a Palestinian interest. It is the interest of the entire Muslim world and the entire Arab world.” (2013)

    Hojateleslam Alireza Panahian, the advisor to Office of the Supreme Leader in Universities: “The day will come when the Islamic people in the region will destroy Israel and save the world from this Zionist base.” (2013)

    Hojatoleslam Ali Shirazi, Khamenei’s representative in the Revolutionary Guard: “The Zionist regime will soon be destroyed, and this generation will be witness to its destruction.” (2013)

    Khamenei: “This barbaric, wolflike & infanticidal regime of Israel which spares no crime has no cure but to be annihilated.” (2014)

    Hossein Salami, the deputy head of the Revolutionary Guard: “We will chase you [Israelis] house to house and will take revenge for every drop of blood of our martyrs in Palestine, and this is the beginning point of Islamic nations awakening for your defeat.” (2014)

    Salami: “Today we are aware of how the Zionist regime is slowly being erased from the world, and indeed, soon, there will be no such thing as the Zionist regime on Planet Earth.” (2014)

    Hossein Sheikholeslam, the secretary-general of the Committee for Support for the Palestinian Intifada: “The issue of Israel’s destruction is important, no matter the method. We will obviously implement the strategy of the Imam Khomeini and the Leader [Khamenei] on the issue of destroying the Zionists. The region will not be quiet so long as Israel exists in it …” (2014)

    Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Guard: “The Revolutionary Guards will fight to the end of the Zionist regime … We will not rest easy until this epitome of vice is totally deleted from the region’s geopolitics.” (2015)

    Regarding that imaginary meeting at Camp Davis, shouldn’t Bashar al-Assad be there too? Syrian land was stolen by Israel in 1967 and remains stolen. If Israel wants peace, they’re going to have to return that land and dismantle the estimated 41 settlements they built there.

    I hope Trump does weigh in personally. This alarms AIPAC and other Zionists because unlike GWB, who was a moron and a naif, Trump may actually have strong opinions on the subject. My advice to him would be to condition aid to Israel on their coming to the bargaining table and acting in good faith. They haven’t done that yet.

      The Golan Heights was not stolen – it was taken as a strategic necessity – for survival – needed to protect Israel from Syrian attacks! Syria had been continually hostile and attacked Israel.

      Get over yourself and your ignorance of history.

        As for settlements and Gaza/West bank now called ‘Palestine’ – those are JEWISH Palestine….read on to correct your understanding of history:

        There has already been a 2 State solution since 1922 or so…

        Jordan is Arab Palestine and all land west of the Jordan river is Jewish Palestine.
        http://www.mythsandfacts.org/replyonlineedition/images/maps/1922-mandate_for_palestine.jpg)

        Israel gave up 77% of what was allotted to them by the League of Nations, precursor to the UN, in 1922 – that ALL land west of the Jordan river is Israel (Jewish Palestine) and land east of the Jordan is Arab Palestine. (aka Jordan).

        Right now, historically and legally – Gaza and West Bank are being illegally occupied by Arabs – and there is only an Armistice allowing them to camp there.

        The Arabs/Muslims have violated every treaty with Israel and everyone else and only perpetrated violence upon the earth since Islam began.

        Israel needs its own land and was granted its own historical land by international decree. Israel is as valid as Pakistan and Iraq and the rest of those countries created (as the US Marines were created) to try to make the earth safe from Islamic barbarism.

        Time to put our foot down and tell the Islamists we are done with putting up with their 5 deadly jihad attacks since 9/11/01. Either shape up or we will herd you back to Mecca and let the Saudis feed, clothe and put up with you!

        Whatever you say Hasbara troll. I’m sure land taken as a “strategic necessity” is land you build apartment complexes on. Makes total sense. Those fat guys from Brooklyn toodling around with their AK-47s should scare Assad plenty.

        Why is this site so infested with neocons? Didn’t they get the memo — Trump supports Assad (we know this) and is NOT Lindsey Graham.

            Hilarious. It must really be a lump of coal in your Christmas stocking to know that Trump is on record for supporting Bashar al-Assad and getting personally involved in the peace process. Good luck with your frantic AIPAC approved cut and paste jobs. I note that you repeat these diatribes over and over on this site, word for word, which suggests you are a flat out lunatic, or just lack imagination. Bless your heart.

                What a halfwit clown you are. You can’t even insult intelligently. McMullin was a tool of the neocons, precisely the people who would write the Israel-first drivel you cut & pasted. I’m with Trump and not the neocons. If anyone is aping a Republican it’s you and Marcobot. He also repeats himself quite stupidly and unconsciously, to the amusement of us all.
