Much has been said and written on President Donald Trump’s controversial statement on Jerusalem on December 6, 2017. But there was one sentence in the speech that everyone – the conflicting parties and the international community – could agree on: “It would be folly to assume that repeating the exact same formula would now produce a different or better result.” Trump was talking about U.S. policy on Jerusalem, but other international actors have suggested changing other basic elements, including in the structure of the peace process itself. Over recent months, there has been an increase in the number of voices within diplomatic discourse challenging the monopoly of the U.S. as the exclusive mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. These same voices are pushing toward creating a new mediation framework.
