Israelis head to the polls in closely-watched elections next week, and if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reelected the Trump Administration is reportedly prepared to unveil a long-awaited Israeli-Palestinian peace plan crafted by the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
But this is not the two-state solution deal long pushed by U.S. administrations. Instead, the U.S. will likely mobilize foreign economic assistance to the West Bank in Gaza, but not force Israel to make tough concessions on occupied territory or control of Jerusalem.
This week on “Wake” we’ll talk to a former Palestinian peace negotiator about what he calls America’s ‘Blind Spot’ when it comes to the peace process, and what to expect in the weeks ahead.
