Gog uMagog This Sukkot?

10 Elul 5778

There is a new report circulating that Trump intends to reveal his "Deal of the Century" Peace Plan during his speech to the UN General Assembly which opens September 18, 2018 and which happens to be Erev Yom Kippur. I don't know which date is set for the President's speech, but that puts it in the neighborhood of Sukkot which is the traditional time period for the Gog uMagog War.
The White House Middle East policy team is still working on the Trump administration’s peace plan. Trump said when he first took office he would support either a one- or two-state solution, whichever both parties agree to.
A month after meeting with Trump, Abdullah briefed French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian in Amman, according to French diplomats. The king said he warned Trump that “many young Palestinians don’t want the two-state solution anymore, but would rather live together with the Israelis in one state with equal rights for all.” He also suggested that Israel “will lose its Jewish character,” Axios reported.
That led Trump to say, sarcastically, “What you say makes sense. … [In a one-state scenario,] the prime minister of Israel in a few years will be called Mohammed.”
Abdullah said he asked Trump not to rush to present his peace plan “because there are too many difficulties at the moment,” the French diplomats confirmed.
Trump said that he is still committed to the issue, and if his administration can’t reach a deal between Israel and the Palestinians, then no U.S. administration ever will. (Source)
A "two-state solution" doesn't prevent the same scenario from coming to pass, it just kicks the can farther down the road. While 'Palestine' will be Judenrein, Israel will still have a sizeable Arab population with voting rights.

  1. About the EU transportation plan, I think the Israeli Govt. (transportation minister Katz namely) is in collusion, and this may be part of the “New Piece Plan”. Maybe someone else knows more.
