- Mitvim: The Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies
- Following the publication of the Trump plan, Mitvim Institute experts argue that this
is not the way to advance Israeli-Palestinian peace. This document includes initial
commentaries by Nadav Tamir, who claims that Israel needs a real peace plan; Dr.
Nimrod Goren, who calls on the international community to say “no” to the Trump
plan; Dr. Lior Lehrs, who explains that on the Jerusalem issue, Trump shatters the
status quo and previous understandings; Yonatan Touval, who argues that Trump
takes problematic diplomatic practices of his predecessors to the extreme; Prof.
Elie Podeh, who contends that the Trump plan is not even an opportunity for peace;
Former MK Ksenia Svetlova, who warns that the Trump plan might endanger Israel’s
warming ties with Arab countries; Dr. Maya Sion-Tzidkiyahu, who claims that while
the EU remains committed to the two-state solution, it struggles to respond to the
Trump plan; Merav Kahana-Dagan, who identifies an opportunity to bring the
Palestinian issue back to the forefront; Amb. (ret.) Barukh Binah, who calls on
Israeli leaders to seek diplomatic, not only security, advice; and Dr. Roee Kibrik,
who thinks that Israelis should decide what type of country they want to live in.
