Earlier today, President Donald Trump unveiled his peace plan at the White House at an event attended by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The president’s plan calls for the creation of a contiguous Palestine State in the West Bank and Gaza with its capital in a portion of east Jerusalem. The two territories will be connected by a combination of above-ground roads and tunnels.
The plan more than doubles the territory currently under Palestinian control. The Palestinians have already rejected the proposal once before, accusing Trump of being biased in favor of Israel as he has adopted policies that bolster Israel at their expense.
The 50-page political outline goes further in concessions to the Palestinians than many analysts had believed was likely. However, it would require them to accept conditions they have previously been unwilling to consider, such as accepting Israeli sovereignty over the West Bank settlements.
It builds on a 30-page economic plan for the West Bank and Gaza that was unveiled last June and which the Palestinians also rejected.
At dozens of farbrengens the Rebbe stressed that even mere discussion of any territorial concessions to the Arabs will lead to sakanas nefashos (endangering lives).
