Will the International Community Bestow Recognition upon the Peace?

There is now widespread understanding in the international community that the two-state solution was always stillborn and no one likes being fooled a thousand times. International leaders and diplomats still pay lip service to the “two-state solution” and hypothetical “Palestinian statehood”, yet few informed people in the international community sincerely believe in those things nowadays. Erdogan will in all likelihood lose the June 2023 Turkish presidential elections (and perhaps the parliamentary elections as well) and it is thus only a matter of time until Median Jewish mass Aliyah commences from Turkey and there may be as many as 20 million Median Jews in Turkey and there are millions more Median Jews elsewhere.  

However, the question is whether the international community will bestow diplomatic recognition upon the peace once it actually arrives? After a minimum of 10 million Median Jews have immigrated to Israel will Israel redeem and enfranchise the entire Judea and Samaria and Jordan will subsequently annex Gaza. But the question is whether the international community will recognize this new reality and provide actual diplomatic recognition to Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria and to Jordanian sovereignty in Gaza? Or will the discursive and pseudo-legal remnants of the conflict be hypocritically kept alive at the UN and in diplomacy by withholding international recognition? Another question relates to the underground road and railroad  connection that will be needed between the East Bank and Gaza under the Israeli Negev Desert. Will the international community fund it? There is no doubt as to Israel’s (and Jordan’s) commitment to resolving the conflict once the demographics are in place, however is the international community equality determined to put an end to the conflict? I am not informed as to the current state of the diplomacy but surely Israel must act already now to proactively secure future international recognition for sovereignty and international funding for the underground connection.
