WASHINGTON (Dispatches) – The U.S. administration reportedly has finished the so-called peace plan between the Zionist regime and the Palestinians and US President Donald Trump has been briefed on its contents, two senior administration officials told Fox News.
The final draft of the administration’s "Deal of the Century” is 175 to 200 pages long, with fewer than five people having access to the complete version of the document, sources told Fox News.
"The plan is done… [the president] is happy with the parameters of the deal,” a senior administration official said.
The U.S. President has also been briefed by U.S. Ambassador to the occupied territories David Friedman, his Senior Adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner as well as special envoy for Mideast peace Jason Greenblatt multiple times on the specifics of the deal, according to the source.
Back in July, Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei called Trump's "deal of the century" a "satanic" plan, saying it is a non-starter.
"The Americans have named their satanic policy on Palestine ‘the deal of the century’, but they should know that, by divine Grace, this ‘deal of the century’ will never materialize,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in November rejected the plan and decried what he called efforts to separate the West Bank from the Gaza Strip.
"The ‘deal of the century’ will not pass. Our national unity is the most precious thing we have, and it is our strongest weapon to face the plans for liquidation and conspiracies that are being waged against our national cause," Abbas said in a recorded speech aired on Palestine TV.
The so-called deal, a backchannel plan to allegedly reach a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians, was proposed by the US administration late last year. Although the plan has not been released, leaks signal it will consist of the same tried and failed ideas.
While little is known about the controversial deal, leaks have suggested that it regards al-Quds entirely as Israeli territory, whereas Palestinians view the eastern sector of the occupied city as the capital of their future state.
Palestinians also believe that the U.S.-drafted plan calls for keeping borders and security under Israeli control, while it keeps the illegal settlements’ final borders to be discussed in later negotiations.
