President Trump has been very public about his intentions to reach a deal on peace between the Israelis and Palestinians, and his recent meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas was followed by yet more talks of his commitment to get the negotiations launched, and solved.
Palestinian experts, however, say they aren’t optimistic about this yet, because President Trump’s promises have come without any specific details no what, if anything, he’s going to actually do. Indeed, he appears to be going out of his way to avoid taking positions on any of the core issues.
From the two-state solution to the details of Israel’s settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank, President Trump has been very dismissive of the specifics, insisting he doesn’t want to “dictate” terms. Yet he’s also not even offering suggestions at this point, leaving the whole process in limbo.
The only reason to think the peace process has a future at all is President Trump’s own belief that he has super-human powers of negotiation. Yet right now all that’s amounting to is promises of a deal being reached in the future, and no sign anything has even been started of making it happen.

It looks like what was overheard at Iron Mountain where it was agreed that peace was not in the US best interest has been true for decades.
Not when Empire expansion is second only to trading
Western war materials for Middle-East oil.

Wading in with a US plan, a set of demands, has never worked either. That is especially so because it has always been demands of the Palestinians to better please the Israelis.
This is what the alternative looks like, no US/Israeli plan pushed on them in first meetings.
What our white European settlers did to the native Americans 300 years ago, this is precisely and exactly what the white European settlers in Israel are doing to the Arab natives of Palestine. It is just as if time has stood still.
Stealing land at gunpoint, for such white supremacies, can there be anything that generates a greater glory high?
Jared ? lol.
Just Plain ole talk America has invested billions to gain a permanent foothold in the middle east will make sure the status quo stays at it is she has the experience of getting rid of 100million native Americans and 60 million buffalo.
