From the Editor: Will the Trump Peace Plan Bring Peace to Israel?


Last Tuesday, United States President Donald Trump unveiled his peace plan for the Middle East. It was 180 pages and covered an enormous number of specifics. The White House called it "the most detailed proposal ever put forward by far." It received support from Israel: President Trump announced it at the White House with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by his side. But Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas responded, "We say a thousand times: No, no and no to the deal of the century."

Does anybody really think this plan will bring peace? I don’t suppose many people do.

The Bible tells us to beware when you are hearing a lot about peace. The Prophet Jeremiah wrote of false prophets "saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace" (Jeremiah 6:14; 8:11). Isaiah the prophet foretold of a time when "the ambassadors of peace shall weep bitterly."

Diplomats run around talking about peace, peace, peace—but we never have lasting peace. This has been true throughout history.
