Geopolitics of the Middle East under the Deal of the Century
The paper seeks to explore the future geopolitical effects of the American deal known as the “deal of the century” on several Middle East countries. It has become clear that the deal aims to terminate the file of the Arab-Israeli conflict related to the Palestinian issue. Given its ramifications, the Palestinian issue can only be terminated at the expense of several neighboring countries, through redrawing borders to form the expected “New Palestine” State, which will mostly be at the expense of Egypt. According to the deal, the issue of Palestinian refugees is expected to be resolved at the expense of Jordan and Lebanon.
