If Trump Wants to Divide Jerusalem into Three Sections



Jewish Press: {Written before early elections called in Israel and originally posted to the author’s website}

Ben Caspit in Al-Monitor has leaked details of the Trump administration’s “ultimate deal” to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Citing an anonymous “senior diplomatic source,” he writes that the still-secret Trump plan:

includes a clear partition of Jerusalem into three sections, and “it is not about a Palestinian capital in Abu-Dis (a Palestinian village in the Jerusalem governance area) but in significant sections of East Jerusalem.” According to the source, there will be two capitals in Jerusalem: the Israeli capital in West Jerusalem including control over the Western Wall and Jewish neighborhoods in the city’s eastern sections, and the capital of Palestine in the eastern section. In addition will be a third region, within the Holy Basin, to be under international control.

Opinion: Key words if true.

Our post from December 17 “ Australia: West Jerusalem Israel’s capital, but no embassy move” (here) supports Ben Caspit’s assertion.

The prime minister, Scott Morrison (Australia), said the government will also recognise a future state of Palestine with its capital in East Jerusalem after a settlement has been reached on a two-state solution.

If the report is true, and that is why PM Netanyahu called a snap election for April 2019 to stall on dividing Jerusalem, the ‘deal of the century’ will sooner or later be a political/Biblical nightmare for Israel’s Prime Minister:

  • Part of the city will be run by the UN
  • Part of the city will be an Arab (Edomite) capital
  • Part of the city will be a Jewish (Jacob) capital

For Netanyahu it may be reminiscent of the Godfather (Donald Trump) fulfilling a request (US embassy move) and then saying that one day he will ask a favor in return:

And for the US, a possible reversal of blessing (Genesis 12:3), and judgment for dividing the land (Joel 3:1-2).

If it’s true.


  1. Roger that VS!! E. Jerusalem as Palestinian capitol? Satan is really smiling. (I thot that this would be the plan all along, especially the E. Jerusalem piece) Strap yourself in!!!
