JNS.org – With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election on Tuesday, the Trump administration could release its peace proposal for the Israelis and the Palestinians “as early as this month,” according to ABC News, citing sources knowledgeable of the plan.

The outlet reported that US President Donald Trump has been briefed on the proposal, which has been in the works for the past couple years by Mideast envoy Jason Greenblatt and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, also the president’s son-in-law.

The sources told ABC that just four administration members have seen the entire plan, which US officials told the outlet has yet to be shared with allies, including Israel.

The White House declined to comment to the network about the proposal’s specifics.

Last month, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested that it will break from conventional thinking.

Kushner and Greenblatt have been advocating their so-called “deal of the century” through traveling abroad such as to Mideast countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman and Saudi Arabia.

On Wednesday, Trump told reporters, “The fact that Bibi won, I think we’ll see some pretty good action in terms of peace.”

“Everybody said you can’t have peace in the Middle East with Israel and the Palestinians,” he said. “I think we have a chance. And I think we have, now, a better chance with Bibi having won.”

Greenblatt tweeted a message to the Palestinian Authority on Thursday: “To the PA: Our plan will greatly improve Palestinian lives & create something very different than what exists. It’s a realistic plan to thrive/prosper even if it means compromises. It’s not a “sell out,” if the plan isn’t realistic, no one can deliver it.”

An informed source hearing from top Trump administration officials previously told JNS that the United States is expected to recognize a Palestinian state with its capital in eastern Jerusalem, in addition to official US recognition of large Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria.
