Abbas Tells U.S. Envoy Historic Peace Deal is Possible With President Trump…

Tucked away from the attention of almost all of the Western media has been the quiet forward, front, visible and back channel communications playing out amid a very narrow pathway.   CTH continues to monitor these precarious -albeit optimistic- quiet steps because they are converging to form a very specific picture.  [Tweet Link]

(The Hill) Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas met with an envoy from President Trump on Tuesday and told him that a peace deal is possible under the new president.

The meeting between Abbas and Jason Greenblatt, Trump’s Special Representative for International Negotiations, took place in Ramallah.

“President Abbas told Mr. Greenblatt that he believes that under President Trump’s leadership a historic peace deal is possible, and that it will enhance security throughout the region,” according to a statement from the U.S. Consulate General in Jerusalem.  (read more)

We have continued to express optimism for a confluence of events, people and activity that is happening quietly, and could stun the geo-political world.  The timing is right, because we view these activities through a different prism.  We review against the backdrop of President Obama’s mid-east failure, equitable misery.

The reality of President Obama’s expressed foreign policy of regime change -regardless of cost or consequence- has left millions of Mid-East communities in peril; far worse off today than they were nine years ago.  In an odd and accidental way, President Obama created equitable misery.

• The Egyptian people, in no way a populist entity favorable to Israel, suffered through two years of brutal dictatorship from the Muslim Brotherhood and Mohammed Morsi.  Their very survival only due to a successful return of cultural and economic stability at the hands of General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

• The Syrian people, again holding no favorable disposition toward Israel writ large, only just now coming out of the shadows of a horrific five-year civil war and seeing sunlight for the first time in half a decade.  Breathing room.

• The Libyan people, caught amid an ongoing crisis of regional and tribal strife suffering through ongoing extremist violence that has taken them into the depths of economic and social chaos.  And before the fighting is even over, Europe is outlining demands of the North African gates.

• The Jordanian people, again a tenuous and precarious Muslim nation, who has watched the most barbaric and horrific consequences from extremist violence in their lifetimes.

The end result of almost all far-left policies when carried out to their natural conclusion is equitable misery.  At no moment in recent history has the choking consequence of a decade-long ideological war left a larger population of people so exhausted than at this very moment.

Think of the nationalist possibility.  ♦ Fattah al-Sisi (Egypt), ♦ King Abdullah III (Jordan), ♦ Benjamin Netanyahu (Israel), ♦ Mahmoud Abbas (Palestinian Authority), ♦ King Salman and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (Saudi Arabia), and ♦ U.S. President Donald Trump.  Together they have a remarkable canvas.

Yesterday President Trump spent a considerable amount of time with Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.  [Read Out Here] Part of that meeting involved discussion of the Palestinian Israeli conflict:

The President and the Deputy Crown Prince noted the importance of confronting Iran’s destabilizing regional activities while continuing to evaluate and strictly enforce the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

The President expressed his strong desire to achieve a comprehensive, just, and lasting settlement to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and to continue the two countries’ consultations to help reach solutions for regional issues.

More broadly, the President and Deputy Crown Prince noted the ongoing security and military cooperation between the two countries in confronting Daesh/ISIS and other transnational terrorist organizations that pose a threat to all nations. (link)

Saudi Arabia hailed a “historical turning point” in U.S.-Saudi relations after a meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman highlighted the two leaders’ shared view that Iran posed a regional security threat.

The meeting on Tuesday appeared to signal a meeting of the minds on many issues between Trump and Prince Mohammed, in a marked difference from Riyadh’s often fraught relationship with the Obama administration, especially in the wake of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

“This meeting is considered a historical turning point in relations between both countries and which had passed through a period of divergence of views on many issues,” a senior adviser to Prince Mohammed said in a statement.

“But the meeting today restored issues to their right path and form a big change in relations between both countries in political, military, security and economic issues,” the adviser said.  (read more)

Last year Saudi Prince al-Waleed bin Talal broke the ice and simultaneously raised eyebrows when he said publicly he supported Israel’s position and urged the Palestinian Authority to take a full inventory of their own efforts to eliminate radicalism and divisive activity:

[…]  I do not say the vast majority of Palestinians are disloyal, added Prince bin Talal, but this is an established fact that many of them change horses in midstream, as a matter of fact, Palestinians  always complaint and howl about Israeli injustice but I have reports saying that Palestinian construction companies are providing the Israeli army with materiel and concrete to build separation wall ; I also have disdain for certain Palestinians for being annoyingly obstinate , though  the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is financially resourceful and I can guarantee that Riyadh will help them [Palestinians] to dwell permanently among their Arab brothers and work side-by-side with our Israeli friends to bring eternal peace to our region. (link)

Into the opening created by such dialogue, and accepting the intensely forward looking leadership of Egyptian President Fattah Abdel al-Sisi, arrives President Trump.

Earlier this month a delegation from Egypt arrived to speak with Rex Tillerson.  Each of these meetings is like a seed planted.  However, whether it’s Egypt, Israel, Jordan or Saudi Arabia, what all of these emissaries hold in common is a change in tone.

Each envoy within these discussions presents a centered position toward maintaining a new soil for these seeds.  We have not seen this synergy of respectful intent in our modern history:

Egyptian foreign minister Sameh Shoukry visited Washington, meeting with members of Congress, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and newly minted national security adviser H.R. McMaster.

While the trip addressed Egypt-U.S. relations, it also set the stage for an upcoming Egyptian delegation that will include President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. The visits come on the back of what one State Department official privately described as Cairo’s “high expectations” for changes to bilateral relations. (read more)

Egyptian President el-Sisi has already secured most of the Sinai border region.  The current challenge is to keep the extremist elements in check and undermine their destabilizing efforts.  A big part of that stability includes Syria, Russia and the U.S. defeating the remnants of ISIS.

Under-reported in Western media, during the fall/winter of 2014 and spring/summer of 2015 al-Sisi removed every Hamas tunnel and relocated thousands of homes to create a miles-wide buffer zone no longer useful by terrorists.

gaza border sinai

Netanyahu-and-General-el-Sisi-of-Egypt-333-x-248The scope of what Egypt did to secure the Southern and Eastern border of Israel/Gaza is quite remarkable, and they have paid a high price battling extremists every inch of the way.

Simultaneously, as his Egyptian forces were removing the most significant security threat, al-Sisi brokered a peace deal between Abbas and Netanyahu and forced the Palestinian Authority to speak with one voice.   That’s why Egypt was so furious when John Kerry insisted on poking his nose into the agreement.

After the peace deal, and after he constructed the border security zone, Fattah al-Sisi then set up the construct for a Joint Arab Intervention Force.

♦ Immediately following his inauguration, President Trump spoke to Saudi Arabia’s King Salman and gained his ideological and financial support for building a safe zone for Syrian’s as they rebuild.

♦ A week later, President Trump spoke at length to Egypt’s Fattah al-Sisi about their efforts.

♦ At the beginning of February – King Abdullah III of Jordan traveled to Washington to meet with Vice-President Mike Pence and discuss aide and assistance for regional security.   Previously, in November 2016, King Abdullah spoke to President-elect Trump

♦ A week later – Benjamin Netanyahu arrived in Washington DC for a very warm and optimistic meeting with President Trump for talks on regional security.

♦ At the beginning of March – Egyptian foreign minister Sameh Shoukry visited Washington, met with members of Congress and held a long discussion with Secretary of State Rex Tillerson,

♦  Soon – Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is coming to Washington for an official state visit.

If my hunch is correct, this visit by President al-Sisi will be very significant and he could likely be the first formal state dinner Guest of Honor at the White House.  If not a State Dinner, a very well emphasized event, but my spidey senses tell me a State Dinner is likely.

To understand the scope of the seismic paradigm shift this would represent we must remind ourselves that President Obama never even called President el-Sisi after his election win, and never invited him to the White House.  By Obama design their paths only crossed once in New York at the U.N. assembly.   If President Trump hosts President el-Sisi at the White House it would signal a historic shift in policy and approach.

Additionally, such recognition would rightly highlight the strength of Sisi’s courage in the face of severe extremist opposition.   The significance of such an honor would resound throughout the region; it would have incredible impact.

If you put all of these pieces of the puzzle together what you end up with is the very real possibility of a group consisting of: Israel, Egypt, the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, and to a less visible but ultimately important Syria/Russia, agreement becoming the foundational block for a regional peace summit.

We are living in a time amid a remarkable confluence of events.

Just wait and see how apoplectic the liberals become when they eventually get around to noticing all of this groundwork that President Trump has laid, and what could ultimately cement a legacy as the most consequential president in a century.

The mere fact that these possibilities now exist is stunning all by itself.  However, I would not anticipate President Trump accepting anything except success.

    Mr. Trump is some version of – the fearless one on the scene, noticed by those who have, until now, just been living to be offended so they could start fights with everyone in the neighborhood (because they enjoy intimidating and dominating) They seem to learn a different perspective.

    After a bit of observation and reality, the neighborhood bullies may find a way to slip out of their snakeskins for a time of reconsideration, reconnaissance. Because in spite of their belligerence and their track record for killing others, they actually do desire personal and political survival. Apparently they sense that is now seriously threatened by someone who doesn’t say much.

    The lion walks at midnight. Quietly. He makes his presence known. He has no need to stomp and roar. They have now assigned someone to listen for the gentle pad of his very large paws – they don’t want to miss his approach.

    They already have observed his capabilities so he lets his presence be known and waits for the quiet knock at the door – the knock of some emissary of some thug who bullied our former presidents.

    Happy dance. And waiting….

    You need to get real. Short of genocide of the Palestinian peoples the only hope for Israel as a Jewish state is two-state solution. The Palestinians simply reproduce faster than the Jews, so there is no possibility of Israel absorbing them and remaining Jewish. The Palestinians may be a mass of terrorists, but to have peace with them you have to negotiate with them. The only alternative at this point is something like gas ovens, and I cannot believe you are seriously advocating that.

        I’ve been slowly scrolling down through the optimism in the above comments looking for a common sense answer. I believe that Fattah al-Sisi, King Abdullah III, Benjamin Netanyahu, President Donald Trump and Rex Tillerson, with support from Saudi Arabia and cooperation (albeit grudgingly) from Abbas would be the most formidable peace team put together in my lifetime.

        However, the Arabs and Muslims, at best, will sign a peace treaty, wait until they have sufficient military advantage, then break the peace treaty and strike without warning and without mercy.

        A lasting peace that involves Muslims is not possible.

      Well, right now that puppet has got to worry about IS, which is in Sinai and likely Gaza, probably elements in the West Bank as well. Right now Abbas is looking at the possibility that he’s been stabbed in the back by allies (cough, Turkey) and is now fresh out of friends.
      All this holding hands is due to the shifting power play going on in the MENA — consider it like a Mexican standoff: Turkey, Iran, and KSA with all the rest stuck in the middle between them. KSA’s got to make a deal with somebody; Erdogan has a track history of calling people Hitler before stabbing them in the back — see: Assad, 2012); and the Iranians have been making some dangerous noises towards KSA, Israel while making nicer noises towards Turkey (looks like Assad can be sacrificed according to Tehran, or at least Assad’s got to be thinking that not without some reason).
      Is this strictly for convenience? Most definitely yes. But…for us maybe a good thing, as long as we don’t get too sucked into it (because things are probably going to get REALLY interesting there in the following years — we’ve just seen the opening gambits, the big play hasn’t imhao happened yet).

              If Abbas (he’s the official figurehead so that’s his power, and the power given to him by any deals made — that’s probably what he’s angling for…dude’s probably very concerned about keeping his head in the near future, tends to motivate people) agrees to keep a lid on things as best he can in Gaza/West Bank (and by extension Sinai) then it takes some pressure off al-Sisi and Israel (and by extension King Abdullah). They have bigger things to worry about, and Abbas has his own problems. Trump gets a nice political win which will cause heads to explode again (and maybe more if it plays out well — if it buys us some time it helps). KSA gets some reassurances. Iran and Turkey get at least a little setback.

              Will it last forever? No. Are certain players pretty untrustworthy? Yes. That is why you don’t get too sucked into it (hint: first step is in getting rid of the notion of “friends” and “forever”…or even for more than a couple of years tops).

    SD I agree 100% with you. These countries have seen the dark side brought by President Bush and especially President Obama. They also realize that a golden opportunity is staring them all in the face at this point. What Our President can get done for that region over the next 8 years is breathtaking. Obozo laid the seeds with his Iran deal. It is only a matter of time before they have a nuclear weapon. These countries realize their existence hinges on the fact that if that day ever comes, it is over. This unification in many ways is their way of getting their collective heads together to fight that war if and when it becomes necessary. The US and President Trump is the key to their success.

    Our Great Lion realizes that the stars are aligning. Notice how he is keeping MAGA at the forefront of all discussions. From Saudi Arabia funding a zone for future refugees so that they don’t show up at our shores to getting SA to possibly invest over $200 billion jobs that can create 1 million future jobs. He always said that folks will have to pay for our protection. The beauty with his words is that the Uniparty aren’t the ones that will be paid going forward (McCain, HRC, Obozo etc), it will be average Americans that will reap those benefits. Investments in the billions last long after his 8 years as President. It also continues to lay the groundwork for Trumpism reigning in all future Presidents for the next 50+ years.

    This is winning on steroids!

    From an end times prophecy point of view, Sundance addressed nearly all of the players who will end up on the right side of history. If you insist on eliminating the terrorists, you will have to annihilate the leadership of Iran at a bare minimum. I believe Iran and Turkey will both end up on the wrong side of history.

        In the end, it is Islam or the West. They and we cannot co exist in the long run. With the proliferation of nuclear weapons, that becomes an acute problem.

    Too bad they didn’t wait to evaluate all of OBAMA’S MANY “ACCOMPLISHMENTS”!!!

    Obama backed the muslim brotherhood candidate, Morsi, in Egypt, then dissed the current president, al Sisi

    Obama campaigned (IN ISRAEL !!) against Netanyahu

    Obama bombed the shiite out of Libya, creating civil war

    DEMANDED that Assad had to go, while supporting al quaeda affiliates in Syria, exacerbating the civil war, etc. etc.

    And HE got the Noble Peace Prize???

    The mist is beginning to lift and we are getting glimpses. Pres Trump is playing the Long Game, four dimensional chess. I can’t see all the pieces, but I am beginning to see a few moves ahead and, if it goes the way it appears to be going it will amaze all of us.

    Things to remember: The fault line has been globalist/nationalist for a long time, even before we realized it; the fault line will continue to be globalist/nationalist because all other fault lines reduce to it; political groups worldwide are realigning along this G/N fault line.

    Result? The US 2018 elections will be a political blood bath on all sides. Some masks that will fall will shock us with the betrayals they had concealed, but we will also gain some surprising new allies in our nationalist camp.

    Then in 2020 the earth’s political axis will shift, the West will leave the 20th Century behind together with its failed experiments with Godless 19th Century philosophies, and we will enter the new century and the new millennium. The warmest days of the year come two months after the longest.

    And the master plays on, as we continue to pray for God’s guidance of his hand.

    Abbas wants to keep the money flowing from our treasury to his so he can continue syphoning off his large portion, Hamas’s large portion and provide the Muslim Brotherhood their take. He thinks he can pull the wool over our President’s eyes. He thinks we don’t have his number, that he can deal with the new regime as he did Obama.

    Abbas’s goal is not peace as non-Muslims think of it. He means capitulation. He means “surrender to me and I might let you live.” His soul is as black as ISIS. We dare not forget it.

    “Nobody ever asked”. That says it all

    When President Trump asked the Saudi’s to create safe zones for refugees, they said they would

    Everyone was stunned. How did Trump get them to do it?

    The Saudi’s said nobody ever asked them to do it before, & when President Trump asked them, they said OK

    The simple act of reaching out & asking is all it took

    This is why Trump will be an amazingly effective President. The difference between Obama & most recent Presidents & Trump lies in ideology & agenda’s. Obama & the others worked for the globalist/leftists. President Trump works for the people

    The radical Muslims have an agenda far removed from the majority of their people. Our last 5 or 6 Presidents had an agenda far removed from the majority of we the people

    Peace & “live & let live” always took a back seat to the agenda’s & ideologies of the political puppets. There was never any real discussions or compromises if they didn’t lead to the puppets goals

    The people in the Middle East have had it with the wars, the chaos, the poverty & the fear. We’ve had it with the constant “democracy building”, the dead & maimed soldiers & the waste of billions in tax dollars

    President Trumps only agenda is peace & prosperity for all. You guys over there, the people, live as you wish. Don’t bother us & we won’t bother you, & maybe, just maybe we can wheel & deal to benefit us both

    Let’s get rid of all these evil miscreants creating all the problems in this world, on both sides of the equation

    President Trumps agenda of America First should be & can be the rally cry for all countries, that being “The People First”, for it’s the people that President Trump stands for. This movement that all of us here in America started can be the catalyst that brings freedom & peace to the world

    Screw all of this globalist/Marxist bulls***. That scam has been exposed. The people don’t want it & it’s time to rid the world of it

    What an opportunity for President Trump & what an exciting time

      It’s too bad that there is an existential threat to both sides in this. ‘Live and let live’ will ultimately destroy Islam. They sense it, and it is why they hate the West and want to destroy or suborn us. Their culture won’t survive exposure to Western culture. It’s as simple as that. If we continue on our current path, we fall. If we stop and adopt a more realistic approach to dealing with them they do. The globalists seem to be trying to capitalize on this ongoing existential struggle, but it will bite them in the ass one way or the other, I do believe.

    Something interesting to note when you compare and contrast administration 45 (Trump) with 44 (Obama) is the role of God in the administration. From the outset, the Obama administration and Democrat party platform all but eliminated the role of God in policy. From a very early point in the his campaign, Donald Trump acknowledged God and has allowed God and faith to have a role in policy.

    The entirety of the result of Obama’s 8 year administration was fecklessness, inaction, and incompetence. It saw diminished American leadership and a world seeking direction. Conversely, less than 2 months of a Trump administration has brought the promise of earth-shattering progress toward peace and a resurgence of American leadership. 2 months. A negotiated win/win peace deal with Palestine and Israel would send shockwaves throughout the entire mid-east and cement Mr. Trump, currently only 2 months into his administration, as one of the most consequential leaders in modern world history (granted, we don’t know how long a peace deal will ultimately take).

    I do not think the pace of Trump’s success is accidental or due purely to Trump’s own tenacity and vigor. I think we are literally witnessing the power of God as He is capable in working through those who are His friends.

    Isaiah 52:10: “The LORD hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.”

      chojun, ^^^, thank you for this post.
      I am in agreement..its difficult to imagine that one man, even with the best of help, could have survived the hate Trump did, to not only survive, but win this recent election.
      And it does seem to me that God is now more of a natural addition to his speaking, as if more and more Trump is recognizing His presence.
      And, his natural bent is most accomdating to following along with God’s will, for Trump is a man of peace, really…not like the “peaceniks” of yore.

    I dont know how many of you here have followed Egyptology but since I was a kid I was always fascinated by it. Essentially, when the Muslim Brotherhood took over Egypt, tons of horrible things happened, museums were broken into, libraries were burned, historic structures were destroyed, etc. Can you imagine a 2000 or 3000 year old building making it all the way up to the timepoint that president Obama helped overthrow the Egyptian government, resulting in muslims destroying that monument?

    ISIS is doing it all over the middle east right now, destroying historic structures that are thousands and thousands of years old.

    So the news about the riots, and the women that were raped, etc. during the revolution in Egypt were of course more important, but mixed in with that was news of the destruction of Egyptology. On top of that, tourism is at an ALL TIME LOW in Egypt right now, which is one of the biggest sources of income to their economy. This puts Egyptology back 100 (or more) years.

    Sickening to see.

      Abbas is an old man. His party, Fatah, signed an agreement to discuss “unity” with Hamas earlier this year. Unfortunately, there’s no getting rid of Hamas. Neither party is “moderate Muslim” and the younger leaders of Hamas will likely be calling the shots in the near future. There’s no way the U.S. could even call for the elimination of Hamas. The Fatah/Hamas role is now in the taqiyya phase. Believe nothing they say for public consumption.

      Arafat had the opportunity to sign a peace agreement with Israel when President Clinton got them together at the end of his 2nd term of office. Arafat walked away, even though he got over 90% of what they were asking for. Clinton felt this agreement would be the jewel in his crown. He worked harder than anyone had ever done up to that point. No go.

      Fatah will pretend in 2017 just like Arafat did in 2000. They want the money to continue pouring into their coffers from every corner of the diplomatic world. Peace? It’s all a farce. They laugh at us.

Her “occupation” is beyond just, being forced to defend it and regain it again and again in a reign of wars and horrors initiated by others.

        Not one Arab country wants the “Palestinians,” not one wishes a single Palestinian. They are considered to be the lowest and vilest of people’s and impossible to be at peace with.

    The Bible makes it clear that the only one, prior to Christ’s return to Earth, that will bring peace to the Middle East will be the Antichrist. With the Palestinians founding documents requiring the elimination of Israel and their unwillingness every time negotiations have gone on to eliminate that provision, this isn’t going to happen… unless Trump shocks all of us and turns out to be what the left would call him if they believed in God (in other words, unless is the Antichrist). I don’t think any of us here think Trump is evil and so we better accept that he may make some things better temporarily in the Middle East, but if he truly gets peace (not just a deal that is constantly violated, but a real peace between the people there), then we better all be prepared to face the fact that we’ve elected the person who will bring the end upon the world. I, for one, don’t think we did. Rather, I think that this is one area where he won’t be able to succeed. I believe that because I believe the Bible over anything else.

      Every ISIS fighter needs to be destroyed. Our beloved President has said so many times. Not “relocated” not “disbanded” not “placed on a path to citizenship,” eliminated, destroyed, killed, shot, blown up, fuel-air bombs, the good stuff!

      They carry a virus fatal to the innocents of this world, and mustn’t be allowed to spread it. Guantanamo, or Hell. No other options. The Bible has stories about the necessity of eliminating every single enemy, and their violated livestock as well. I remember a certain king that escaped termination, his people gone, and the furious destruction of that last soul at the hand of the Prophet that sent him, reducing him to a pile of flesh…

      It is not mercy to free a murderer. His victims to come, innocent, are more worthy of mercy. Freeing such a one brings their future crimes on ones head. Or, very possibly, the heads of the innocents these “merciful” leaders ought to be protecting.

    Having read through this post and the comments, it seems peace in the region is an unreachable quest, unless EVERY sovereign nation is shown due respect. There are several not-so-hidden agendas. Oil, land, religion, dominance – a poisonous mix. A coalition to eradicate Syria’s right of sovereignty is not the answer. How many more hundreds of thousand of innocent souls have to be killed? I fear the worse is yet to come. The last hope is that President Trump stays focused on his role as mediator. A shift one way or the other will render yet another useless outcome. The biggest question is what price for lasting peace? WWIII perhaps.
