Re: "In a perfect world he [President Trump] would love to be able to achieve peace. He sees his skills, his knowledge, his ability to talk to people as the traits that are necessary for someone who will come into a room with both sides and see if some sort of peace deal can be worked out. But he would never impose that deal on Israel or the Palestinians for that matter. No peace deal is worth anything if some other country or countries try to impose it on them."  

My question to Mr. Greenblatt: If the USA is not imposing pressure  on Israel than please answer the following questions: Each question can be are the first two...

Why did Israel even consider building extensively for Arabs in Area C? BH the 14,000 homes approved in Kalkilya in area C by the cabinet is for now frozen but for what reason is this recommendation of Defense Minister Lieberman even considered, endangering the security on Road 6,  900 meters from Kfar Sava?

Why did Israel recently allow the body of a terrorist to be given back for burial only to receive a celebrated and honorable funeral?

Why are Jews not allowed into Jewish Homes like Beit Hashalom if we insist that Hebron is a Jewish Heritage Site.  

Why can't Jews pray on Har Habayit while Muslims can pray 5x a day when Trump would like to see freedom of religion for all  3 religions and why should we be bullied into this status quo when they riot rather than complying with the lofty goal of freedom of access to all religions to pray at the H-ly sites?  

Why has there been so little building in Bet El and other parts of Judea and Samaria, basically a building freeze in Judea and Samaria not keeping up with the birth rate? 

Why is the Negev being taken over by Beduins as reported by Regavim?

Why can't Jews settle in all of Judea and Samaria while the Arabs insist that large sections of our Biblical Homeland be Judenrein?  

Why is Jihad Education allowed in Israel funded by UNRWA, EU, US etc.?  

Why are the Palestinians  rewarded  for nothing they have done  but simply as a nice good will gesture and terrorists automatically rewarded for terror attacks with the consent and approval of the PA leadership while it takes a terror attack or a verbal assault such as the  UNESCO Resolution designating Maarat HaMachpela a Palestinian Heritage Site to reward Jews?  (this was posed by an Israeli girl who herself was a victim of a terror attack)

Why do you think any peace will come with negotiating with a regime that rewards terror and whose integrity is not to be trusted?  

Why as an Orthodox Jew do you believe that if we nullify G-d's Covenant with our Forefathers, G-d will send us Blessings and not Curses as Has has clearly stated in Parshat Bechukotai? 

Again as Orthodox Jews, in all due respect, will the Palestinians have even the inclination to keep the Commandments of the Torah pertaining to the Land of Israel as this is the key to Peace according to Torah?

We say everyday in Birchat Hshachar "קדש את שמך על מקדישי שמיך"   The commentary in the Artscroll Siddur translates these words as "Sanctify Your Name through those who sanctify Your Name."  and the commentary adds "[Sanctify Your Name] through those who sanctifies Your Name among the multitudes"  and the commentary says "May the time come when no Jew need ever fear to express his Jewishness openly"  .  This is my blessing to you and the Trump Team working hard to find peace in the Middle East. .  

When I say the following prayer as well I think of President Trump and the three of you his chief Peace Negotiators.  Please give your undivided attention to the passages in Pesukei DeZimra in the paragraph beginning with "יהי כבוד" right before אשרי. English from Artscroll Ashkenaz interlinear translation.

רַבּות מַחֲשָׁבות בְּלֶב אִישׁ. וַעֲצַת ה' הִיא תָקוּם:  Many are the designs that are in the heart of man, But the Counsel of Hashem, only it shall prevail,

עֲצַת ה' לְעולָם תַּעֲמד. מַחְשְׁבות לִבּו לְדר וָדר:    The Counsel of Hashem forever will endure, the designs of His heart from generation to generation

כִּי הוּא אָמַר וַיֶּהִי. הוּא צִוָּה וַיַּעֲמד: For He spoke and it came to be, He commanded and it endured                  
כִּי בָחַר ה' בְּצִיּון. אִוָּהּ לְמושָׁב לו: For Hashem has chosen Zion, He has desired it for a habitation for Him    
כִּי יַעֲקב בָּחַר לו יָהּ. יִשרָאֵל לִסְגֻלָּתו:  For Jacob was selected for Him for His own by G-d, Israel as His Treasure  
כִּי לא יִטּשׁ ה' עַמּו. וְנַחֲלָתו לא יַעֲזב:  Because forsake not will Hashem His people, and His heritage He will not abandon

וְהוּא רַחוּם יְכַפֵּר עָון וְלא יַשְׁחִית. Nevertheless, He the Merciful One, is forgiving of iniquity and does not destroy

וְהִרְבָּה לְהָשִׁיב אַפּו. וְלא יָעִיר כָּל חֲמָתו: Frequently He withdraws His anger, not arousing His entire wrath

ה' הושִׁיעָה. הַמֶּלֶךְ יַעֲנֵנוּ בְיום קָרְאֵנוּ:  Hashem save! May the King answer us on the day we call.
