Jared Kushner, adviser to and son-in-law of US President Donald Trump, has told Israeli television that he hopes to see Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White chair Benny Gantz form a new coalition government.

1. Sounds to me like this is Jared's idea and not an actual thing that's been proposed

4. It was proposed by Israeli president Rivlin when he gave Netanyahu the mandate to a government

It was also Avidor Lieberman's recommendation that the two large parties, with or without his, form a government without the very right wing party and the two Orthodox parties allies with Likud. That would be a secular center right government.

Many many people called for a unity government. The devil is in the details, including who should be PM first. Netanyahu has insisted on two things Gantz is against. He wants all 55 of the MK in Likud, the two Orthodox parties and a very right wing group included in the government AND he wants to be the first of the rotating parties. It is not just for power, but because only the PM does not have to step down if indicted.

A third election would extend this uncertain period and it is hard to see it being more conclusive than the last two. In Israel, they need a government with 61 MK backing the government. Without Blue and White, Netanyahu has only 55. There are 120 altogether, but many will not accept the Israeli Arabs in the government and I think there are 10 of them. So, each of the big parties need at least some from the other big party to form a government.

So, this is not just Jared's idea.

2. Sounds like Jared is doing his job as the 2nd backchannel White House Policy Person for Middle East

Wonder if Jared is busy doing similar things in Israel like Ghouliani was doing in Ukraine?
