Trump’s peace plan is being opposed by many here in the region.

Tamar Yonah’s guest, Ted Belman, says there may be a better plan, called, the "Jordan Option".

This idea involves giving Jordan the responsibility for the Palestinian Arabs. There are many versions of this idea, but most suggest that the Palestinians get something that is less than a fully independent state, while Israel gets a partner that is more than an unreliable Palestinian neighbor.

The “Jordanian option” is much more mainstream than Israel publicly admits.

"Belman says that this Jordan Option, which considers Jordan to be the Palestinian state, differs from The Deal of the Century which aspires to create a Palestinian state west of the Jordan River."
