Netanyahu to Bolton: Any Palestine deal ‘must include’ Israeli presence in Jordan Valley

Benjamin Netanyahu, who on Sunday toured the West Bank with John Bolton, said he will listen to US peace proposals – but added that “any future agreement” with Palestine must guarantee an Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley.

Footage posted on Sunday showed Israel’s prime minister and the US national security adviser overlooking the Israeli-occupied area from an aircraft and on the ground, with Netanyahu seen giving Bolton an excursion.

Speaking English on camera standing next to Bolton, the PM rammed the message home that Israel will not be leaving the area under any deal, saying it ensures “the minimal strategic depth and strategic height for the defense of our country.”

Netanyahu was also adamant that the Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley “guarantees stability and security for the entire region,” and that the IDF leaving the occupied Palestinian lands would result in “war and terror.”

To those who say that for peace to be established, Israel has to leave the Jordan Valley, I say: That’s not going to bring peace. That’s going to bring war and terror – and we’ve been there. We don’t want to be there again.

Israel will study US President Donald Trump’s Middle East peace plan in “a fair and open manner,” Netanyahu said, a day after White House senior adviser Jared Kushner presented the economic part of the deal.

He made known his bewilderment at the Palestinian reaction to the proposal, saying “I can’t understand how the Palestinians rejected the plan before even hearing what it is in it.”

Bolton appeared to be supportive of Netanyahu’s stance, saying that “it’s too bad... that more Americans can’t come to locations like this, see the geography, understand its significance, understand how it affects Israel’s critical security position, and explain why Israel has taken the view that it has.”

R ~ Only if you are a Zionist would Bolton attach another piece of the ME to the Jewish invaders of Palestine. 'A fair and open manner' is not a negotiating platform was ever possible with jews, not yesterday, not today and not tomorrow. Anyone elect this fellow to dictate what we in America should support? Trump needs to reign in this penchant for his employees to set the agenda. Had it been up to Bolton we would be bombing Iran as I write this. But enough of this crap. Trump has NOT drained the swamp. He's actually in need of a wall to hold back the swamp creatures dragging their same old tired rhetoric into the public discourse. Netanyahoo carries on about the American Peace Process when even a child knows it's a "Jew Peace Process" from top to bottom. Here we have two of the world's foremost war mongers discussing what to do with Jordan, as if they can so easily decide what to do with the neighbors who ALL want them gone from their land. The hubris is beyond belief.
