Pence calls on Netanyahu and Gantz to discuss "deal of the century" with Trump in Washington on Tuesday

 US Vice President Mike Pence extended an invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his rival, blue and white party leader, Benny Gantz to visit Washington next Tuesday, January 28, 2020 to meet with US President Donald Trump He thoroughly discussed the details of the "Deal of the Century" plan with him prior to its launch.

Pence extended the invitation during his participation in the seventy-fifth commemoration ceremonies, Thursday, January 23, 2020.

Al-Quds learned that Netanyahu and Gantz accepted the invitation, knowing that the Knesset was set on Tuesday (28/28) to discuss the issue of "Netanyahu's immunity" before the corruption charges brought against him.

The White House is expected to issue a statement on the invitation within the next 24 hours, broadly indicating the significance of the meeting without going into details.

It is noteworthy that Gantz had considered that launching the deal of the century before the Israeli elections represented a blatant interference in the elections, but he backed down fearing that Netanyahu would benefit from the announcement and that he would remain outside its "political benefits", especially between the right and the settlement movement that is trying to obtain its support.

Trump's ambassador to Israel David Friedman had stated earlier this month to Israeli Channel 12 that "America is waiting for the Israeli elections to move the borders of Israel further east," but apparently there is no longer a need to wait until after the elections, in light of the acceptance of the competitors Netanyahu And Gantz, and the declaration of each of them on the priority of annexing the occupied Valley and the Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

The president's son-in-law and first advisor Jared Kushner did not go to Israel to participate in the "Holocaust" commemorations, as various US media had expected last week.

It is noteworthy that the US administration hinted last week that it was ready to launch the deal of the century before the Israeli Knesset elections in the first week of March.

"I am surprised that President Trump decided to announce his plan for the Palestinian-Israeli peace, although the conditions are not appropriate," says one of the experts who has kept up with the controversy of the "Deal of the Century" since it began talking about three years ago.

The source (the expert), who asked not to be named, added, "I think the president sees a political benefit in favor of Netanyahu, as he undoubtedly loves and supports Netanyahu, and looks at the Israeli leader (Netanyahu) as the best Israeli leader to provide the support Trump needs from Christian missionary circles, and conservative American Jews." This is a political service for the two leaders (Trump and Netanyahu) who need them most in these delicate days, which pose a danger to their political future.

The expert does not believe that the details of the deal will be revealed on Tuesday and that "it is intended to give a boost to Netanyahu, who would not have been prime minister had it not been for Trump, Pence, Pompeo and Friedman."

It is noteworthy that US President Trump is facing a loud political trial currently in the US Senate since last Tuesday (1/21/2020) due to two charges of isolation against him, abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, and led to a decision to remove him in the House of Representatives on December 20 Last 2019.

The trial is expected to be at its climax next Tuesday, the date set for Netanyahu and Gantz's visit.

Experts in Washington believe that the "deal of the century" play and Trump's celebration of his Israeli visitors, and the process of showing him as a peacemaker, are designed to give Trump what deviates attention from his trial and the controversy surrounding his presidency even if only temporarily.

Israeli Channel 12 reported that "right-wing ministers threaten to refrain from supporting and implementing the century plan if it stipulates the establishment of a Palestinian state" while Naftali Bennett said on Twitter: "Trump and the peace team are true friends ... but we on the right will not allow the transfer of any land to the Palestinians or the establishment of A Palestinian state ... The plan must include the application of sovereignty over the settlements ... This is a historic opportunity for us, but we will reject any risks against us. "
