Trump Outline Revealed: Israel will give up four neighborhoods in East Jerusalem

Ma'ariv learned that parts of the peace plan were presented to Lieberman. Israel will be required to transfer Shu'afat, Jabal Mukaber, Issawiya and Abu Dis to the PA, making East Jerusalem the capital of Palestine.
In recent months, Israel has been waiting anxiously for the moment when US President Donald Trump will present his peace plan to the Middle East, and so far has been revealed to the public as well as to senior Israeli officials. In Washington last week, he was presented with some of the principles of Trump's plan, which includes, among other things, extensive and significant concessions by Israel. In addition, the new outline was presented to senior figures in the Israeli leadership. It was also reported that the US expects Israel to accept the layout and come to terms with the painful concessions for her.
During the talks, American officials presented a plan whereby Israel should be asked first phase disconnect from four neighborhoods in East Jerusalem - the Shuafat , Jabel Mukaber, Issawiya and Abu Dis. According to the outline, The neighborhoods will be transferred to the sovereignty of the Palestinian Authority, and in effect will be cut off from the capital of Israel.
Lieberman also met with senior US defense officials: Defense Secretary James Matisse, US Army Chief of Staff Joseph Danfour and National Security Council Chairman John Bolton. Other meetings and talks were held with Trump's special envoy to the Middle East, Jason Greenblatt, and with Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and adviser.
[Ma'ariv] also learned that Israel was promised unreserved support from the White House regarding efforts against Iran's nuclear program. Among other things, the US will provide Israel with widespread backing in international forums if you decide to take action against Iran directly, and as a result, may face international condemnation. In addition, the government will give Israel a significant military support in case of war, both by providing advanced weaponry.
Office of Lieberman said yesterday "We do not refer to the content of his meetings."
In February, a French diplomat in the London-based Ash Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported that the Trump plan would include the establishment of a demilitarized Palestinian state on 40 percent of Judea and Samaria with East Jerusalem as its capital.
Presumably, the transfer of the neighborhoods to Palestinian control is the first step on the road to transforming East Jerusalem into their capital. According to the report, the plan does not include the Old City - and it will be recognized as an international area. It should be noted that in recent months the Palestinian leadership has boycotted the American administration's representatives for negotiations with Israel, and does not meet with them during their visits to the region.
Do you believe me now?!!
This huge event coming up to celebrate the sham of the move of the US Embassy to Jerusalem, the dangled promise of backing against Iran and no doubt the hints about Trump releasing Pollard to come to Israel this past week are meant to further sweeten the "deal." This is the "carrot." Beware the "stick."
When Clinton was about to release Jonathan Pollard to Netanyahu in 1998 as part of the Wye River Agreement, giving most of Hebron to the PA, Dennis Ross famously said "you don't have too many cards like this to play, so best to hold him for final status talks."
So, having paid his debt to the US for breaking their law with eleven years of his life already, for the past remaining twenty years, Jonathan Pollard has been held as a hostage in order to blackmail the Israeli government into ever more "concessions" to the murderous Arabs!!
Pollard is all wrapped up in the geulah process. HKB"H has preserved his life and his sanity throughout this horrible and tragic ordeal and He will continue to do so until HE will decide when it is time for him to come home to Israel - perhaps when enough Jews will plead for it!
Jonathan Pollard has paid any "debt" he owed to the US many times over. If Trump really does follow through, he won't be doing Israel any favors. Pollard's release from parole to make aliyah to Israel is a matter of justice! Israel will not owe anyone any "concessions" in return!
