TROUBLE IN THE HOLY LAND

‘Secret Obama plan’ forfeits Temple Mount to Palestinians

Formula for Israel-Arab talks leaked to WND

Aaron Klein

The Obama administration has quietly presented a plan in which the Palestinian Authority and Jordan will receive sovereignty over the Temple Mount while Israel will retain the land below the Western Wall, according to a senior PA negotiator speaking to WND.

The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism.

The proposed plan is part of the basis for U.S.-brokered talks that are set to resume in Washington next week after Secretary of State John Kerry announced that both Israel and PA President Mahmoud Abbas have agreed to open negotiations aimed at creating a Palestinian state.

Israel has not agreed to the U.S. plan over the Temple Mount, with details still open for discussion, stated the PA negotiator.

The negotiator, who is one of the main Palestinian figures leading the Arab side of the talks, further divulged Kerry’s proposed outline for a Palestinian state as presented orally to Israel and the PA.

He said Jordan has been invited to play a key role in the discussions surrounding both the Temple Mount and Jerusalem while it will be the PA, with some Jordanian assistance, that would ultimately receive control of some of those areas.

WND was first to report in 2007 that Jordan had been quietly purchasing real estate surrounding the Temple Mount in Jerusalem hoping to gain more control over the area accessing the holy site, according to Palestinian and Israeli officials.

Meanwhile, regarding the rest of Jerusalem, Kerry’s plan is to rehash what is known as the Clinton parameters. That formula, pushed by President Bill Clinton during the Camp David talks in 2000, called for Jewish areas of Jerusalem to remain Israeli while the Palestinians would get sovereignty over neighborhoods that are largely Arab. Most Arab sections are located in eastern Jerusalem.

WND previously reported the Palestinians are building illegally in Jewish-owned areas of Jerusalem, resulting in Arab majorities in some neighborhoods.

For the strategic Jordan Valley, Obama’s proposal calls for international forces to maintain security control along with unarmed Palestinian police forces, the PA negotiator said. Israel will retain security posts in some strategic areas of the Jordan Valley, according to the leaked plan.

When it comes to the West Bank, which borders Jerusalem and is within rocket range of Israel’s main population centers, Israel is expected to evacuate about 90 percent of its Jewish communities currently located in the territory, as outlined in Kerry’s plan.

Israel would retain strategic security posts along with the West Bank’s main blocs, Maale Adumin, Ariel and Gush Etzion. In return, Obama is calling for an exchange of territory with the Palestinians in other locations inside Israel, with discussion being open for the Palestinians to possibly receive land in the Israeli Negev in the country’s south.

The PA negotiator further said Israel rejected a Palestinian request that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agree not to place the final peace plan up for referendum in the Knesset.

Indeed, Netanyahu announced today any plan must receive final approval in a national poll.

“I am committed to two objectives that must guide the result … if there will be a result. And if there will be a result, it will be put to a national referendum,” he said at the start of the cabinet meeting.

“Negotiations with the Palestinians will not be easy, but we are entering them with integrity, honesty and hope,” Netanyahu added.

The PA negotiator, meanwhile, said Netanyahu agreed that as a gesture to restart talks, Israel will enact a temporary freeze on all Jewish construction in the West Bank outside the main settlement blocs. According to Israeli sources, such a freeze has largely already been in place for several months now anyway.

The negotiator warned that one of the toughest issues centers on control of water, with Kerry already reaching out to Turkey about the prospect of selling water at a cheaper rate to a future Palestinian state.

It sure seems they have a lot of players involved. Kerry as an honest broker has about no credibility. I spoke to an Israel resident who said, following the Arab Spring, the major concern now is Jordan. I guess that is on no ones radar yet. But this deal sure smells of a scheme. A 90% evacuation of the West Bank does not seem like negotiation.

Imagine then a request that Netanyahu agree to not put it to a referendum. Well, maybe that is the way Arabs like to do things considering Abbas assuming office, but that should not fly in Israel. And considering the Arabs seem to have this model democracy thing across the region.

Op-Ed: Jews Die When the World Talks “Peace”

Giulio Meotti

Repeating what happened to Czechoslovakia in 1938, in 2013 the Western democracies are betraying the tiny State of Israel. And the Palestinian Arabs are no more likely to preserve the peace after Israel’s withdrawal from the territories than Nazi Germany was after the democracies offered it the Sudetenland on a silver platter. The Palestinian Arabs want to create a state west of the Jordan as a springboard from which to eliminate Israel.

The main difference is that while the Germans used gas, the Arabs would probably prefer knives to finish the job.

David Isaac writes:

Unfortunately, getting Israel to the negotiating table is just a first step in squeezing Israel back to the 1949 Armistice Lines. Doubly unfortunate is that trying to reduce Israel to those lines is a long State Department tradition.

But other than that, it seems to be peacetime in the region.

    Israel is just so damn big they have plenty of ground to give up to another sector of the butcher society! I’m not Jewish and have never been to Israel, but I think I can go ahead and predict how a national vote in Israel will go on this plan. Ain’t gonna happen.

    Why in the hell should Israel have to give up anything? Israel doesn’t go out and attack muzzie’s, because they are bored. Israel has been fighting to maintain its very existence since its inception. I say to hell with Jordan, burn in hell Traitor Kerry and let the damn muzzie’s try to take the land away from Israel, if they think they can get away with it.

    When in the hell is everyone else going to realize appeasement to these damn camel jockeys does NOT change their plan of world domination or bring forth peace????

      Dave, you got that right. I think we’re learning one thing, the world can never be big enough for the Muslims. They want it all, everything. If there was 90% evacuation, they wouldn’t be happy till its 100%.(they’d want 110) You don’t see that with anyone else, even Russia.

      Kerry had better not bring a curse on America. Now we see the same traits with Kerry, he just took the job and he can’t get there quick enough, just like Obastid. The only future they care about is their own, political one.

        Bull, Hanoi Kerry I’m afraid has the same personal future vision as Hitlery. If the Traitor Party can serve up two options to their mindless sheep, the better for them. Either choice destroys us and Kerry came damn close the first time. I’m getting physically ill again picturing trailer trash Heinz as our First Bitch!

        Oh yeah; if we all left earth and moved to the moon the muzzies wouldn’t be happy. They won’t be happy, until we are totally exterminated from existence.

    What a horrible so called “deal” for Israel. Such nonsense that they should have to give over the Temple Mount to the Arabs. Kerry is a POS and a traitor. I can’t see Bibi giving up their rights to these Arabs. One thing that always kills me is only the Jews have to give up areas of their land, as if that is going to change anyone’s mind about destroying Israel. Their tiny part of land is so small. The only reason the PA wants their land is so they can take it over and destroy the Jews.

    I don’t see this deal by Kerry and the king as truly supporting Israel. How anyone could is beyond my pay grade.

      Pepp,

      The whole thing is so depressing. Some deal, and Kerry is just the guy to stage it. It seems like the word is traveling fast in Israel, while it gets passing mention here, They are all up to no good. I’m not sure how much catchup Kerry cares. Sounds more like Biden’s plan for Iraq. I’m getting sick of hearing the Arabs want this and that. We know what they want. Look what they have already.
