Update 15 Sep: Trump to push Mideast peace initiative as hard as he can to all nations at UN General Assembly meetings.
5 Sep: Trump envoy’s say that the Trump Peace Initiative will be finalized after the September UNGA meetings between Trump and Netanyahu / Abbas. The Israeli Knesset is in summer recess until late October and the Trump plan is now expected to be tabled after that.
The Israeli government is working on a Bill to allow the full cabinet to delegate war making powers to the Security Cabinet, which Bill is to be presented to the Knesset as soon as the summer recess ends and could possibly pass by mid November. Meanwhile the Islamic State is shrinking by the day and and is expected to completely collapse by sometime on October.
These trends seem to be converging on an Israeli election call. The reason for elections being that Netanyahu would need a much broader level of support before entering peace talks.
If these trends work out then Bibi is likely to go to war with Gaza and Hezbollah between the dissolution of his government and polling day. Please see the August News Blog and the September News Blog for updates on military preparations for this long planned war.
Donald Trump is planning to launch his major Middle East Peace Initiative at the Annual United Nations General Assembly Conference in New York this September.
Faced with the Palestinians agreeing to peace talks and the entire world demanding such talks, the present very unstable far right Israeli coalition will be backed into a corner and an election call to try for a stronger mandate is highly probable.
Presidents Trump and Putin moved to crush the Islamic State as soon as possible in their Friday July 7, 2017 Summit, by agreeing to a ceasefire in south Syria on the Jordanian and Israeli borders.
While Westerners may look at this as an end to Syrian attempts to defeat the rebels there, the ceasefire is multi-sided and the rebels are also committed to stop their attacks on Syria, thus freeing up the Syrian army, Hezbollah and Russia to concentrate on the Islamic State.
This will also free up the American Coalition to concentrate on the final destruction of the Islamic State in Syria/Iraq.
As the Islamic Sate reaches its final end in the region, the attention of the world will turn to the Israeli / Palestinian and regional Middle East problem.
