BREAKING: Jared Kushner Announces Middle East Peace Deal in Next Couple of Months
Jared Kushner: “We’re hopeful in the next couple of months that we’ll put out our plan which again not every side is gonna love but there is enough in it and enough reasons why people should take it and move forward. This plan will keep the Israeli people safe, give them a good future but also give a real opportunity and hope with the Palestinian people so that they can live much better lives. I’ve been saying a lot that you shouldn’t be hijacking your children’s future because of your grandparents’ conflict. This is a conflict that has been going on for way too long. And the way that people are living in the West Bank and Gaza right now is not acceptable and there is a lot we can be doing to improve their quality of life.
UNITED NATIONS — Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations said Tuesday that the White House intends to move forward with its much-anticipated Middle East peace plan early next year, before expected Israeli elections.
“We don’t know the details of the plan but we know that it’s completed,” Ambassador Danny Danon told a small group of reporters Tuesday in his office near U.N. Headquarters. He said the Trump administration has told the Israeli government that it is prepared to roll out the plan in early 2019.
President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, and White House Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, have been drafting the Trump administration’s long-awaited plan for a peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians, and they have touted its preparation several times since the White House’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital on Dec. 6 and the opening of the new U.S. Embassy there in May.
The date for Israeli elections is not set, but Danon predicted a vote would likely be called for May or June. That would mean “a window of opportunity for the administration to present the peace plan” in early 2019, he said.
U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman has cautioned the Trump administration’s Middle East team, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Advisor John Bolton, not to roll out the White House plan at a time that would in any way interfere in Israeli elections.
Danon said it would be “horrendous” if the White House decided to present its proposal during the Israeli election campaign. He added that if the Trump administration doesn’t present the plan soon, there will not be another opportunity until next fall when there is a new Israeli government.
“We know that there will be parts that we will like, there will be parts that we don’t like… but we will be open-minded. We will be willing to negotiate, to speak about everything,” Danon said, adding that the United States is working to bring Egypt, Jordan and Saudi Arabia into the peace effort.
“I think one thing is for sure, the Palestinians are suffering today, the people,” Danon said.
Speaking in September, in remarks at the U.N. alongside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Trump said achieving a meaningful political solution to the decades-long Mideast crisis during his first time was, “a dream of mine.
Israel has been working to improve relations with Arab nations. Two weeks ago, White House envoy Greenblatt wrote: “There are now multiple examples of thawing relations between Israel and its neighbors.” On Tuesday, Greenblatt said in a Tweet that it is “time for change — great to see some Arab leaders recognizing this.”
If this plan is a seven-year peace plan with Israel it is the Covenant with Death. Anything else, and it is just a failed plan that will not be accepted or effective.
