5. Calls on the Government of Israel and all Israelis to accept this initiative in order to preserve the prospects for peace and to put an end to the new bloodshed that will enable Arab countries and Israel to live in peace and good neighbourliness and to offer security, stability and prosperity to future generations. This will allow Mr. Trump to divert attention from the “Deal of the Century” he did not get: Israeli-Palestinian peace. This project was widely rejected in favour of Israel and rejected by the Palestinians. The problem is that the Israelis have already seen how Abbas can be a voluble “peace partner,” and Abbas is dazzling with his own people. Khaled Elgindy, a leader of the Middle East Institute, told the Times of Israel: “The next intifada will probably be aimed as much at the [Palestinian] leadership as it is at the Israeli occupation.” “This is a new era of peace. Peace for peace. The economy for the economy. We have invested many years in peace and now peace will invest in us,” he said. The agreements have given only a superficial reference to what “peace in the Middle East” has long evoked: peace between Palestinians and Israelis. Indeed, the Palestinians were not warned in advance that the Emirates had reached an agreement with Israel and the United States, although Mr. Netanyahu`s threat was the threat to anchor much of the West Bank.
The threat of annexation has had the potential to inflame Arab citizens. To avoid this, the U.A.E. reportedly contacted the Trump administration with the idea of normalizing relations in exchange for Israel`s cancellation of its annexation plans. Bahrain, a tiny kingdom closely linked to Saudi Arabia, followed suit. Oman and Sudan could be next. The Middle East has undergone dramatic changes since the beginning of this conflict. Unimaginable opportunities and alliances have so far emerged in confronting common threats and pursuing common interests. The threats of the Iranian radical regime, for example, have led to a new reality in which the State of Israel and its Arab neighbours increasingly share similar views on threats to their security.
If peace can be achieved, economic and security cooperation between the State of Israel and its Arab neighbours can create a prosperous Middle East, linked to a common desire for security and economic opportunity. If implemented, this vision can lead to direct flights between the State of Israel and its neighbours, transportation of people and trade, and the development of opportunities for millions of people to visit religious sites sacred to their faith. The city of Jerusalem includes the present-day commune of Jerusalem, as well as the surrounding villages and towns, of which the easterns of Abu Dis will be; the southernmost, Bethlehem; the most western, “A Karim (including the built-up area of Motsa); and the northernmost shu`fat, as shown on the attached sketch card (Annex B). “There is no doubt that the idea of normalization with Arab countries is supported by both the left and the right,” said Dahlia Scheindlin, a Tel Aviv pollster. “The right feels they don`t have to make concessions to the Palestinians to get them, and the left likes peace agreements.” The Council`s functional competence extends to all powers and powers conferred on the Council, as in this agreement or in future agreements that may be concluded between the parties during the transition period.
