Jared Kushner to unveil Trump's Middle East (economic) peace plan

For foreign policy watchers, President Donald Trumpís State of the Union Speech was missing some crucial talking points, among them: His long-promised Middle East peace plan.

There was some expectation that he might unveil it during the U.N. General Assembly in September. That didnít happen. Nor did the plan materialize in the four month timeline he promised that same month. But according to a piece published by Politico on Friday, the wait is somewhat over: Jared Kushner, Trumpís son-in-law and the man tasked with drafting a plan, will soon unveil the planís ďthe economic portion.Ē

A brief reminder of the actual conflicts in the region include Syriaís civil war, Yemenís civil war (with the intervention of a U.S.-backed Saudi Arabian coalition), tensions between Israel and Palestine, and the ongoing conflict in Iraq.

Kushner, weíre told, will head at the end of February to the Gulf Arab states of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates.

3. Of course, since the NON-economic part of Jared's plan...

...involves Palestinian acceptance of a perpetual occupation, I really donít think the economic portion has much of a point.
