Kushner makes little headway on Mideast peace plan in Gulf

BEIRUT/DUBAI (Reuters) - White House adviser Jared Kushner made a whirlwind visit this week to rally U.S.-allied Gulf Arab allies to support his still- unannounced Middle East peace plan, the leaked contours of which suggest little has been done to address Arab demands.

Kushner’s approach to ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict does not appear to have progressed since his last regional tour in June, focusing largely on economic initiatives at the expense of a land-for-peace deal long central to the official Arab position, two sources in the Gulf told Reuters on Wednesday.

Palestinians have refused to discuss any peace blueprint with the United States in the wake of President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in 2017, while some Arab leaders have publicly rejected any deal that fails to address Jerusalem’s status or refugees’ right of return.

Kushner, who is President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, met with leaders in the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Oman this week. He arrived in Turkey on Wednesday.

1. Who is going to listen to this crook anyways? I think everybody is running away from anything...

related in any shape, form, or fashion to rump, including Kushner. Who in the world can stand his voice anyways? It's like fingernails being dragged across a blackboard.

3. Maybe it is money not resolving

the issues as it keeps the cash flowing from both sides. In the rumpie world, all of US are marks for the con man and all political criminals who worship power and money.

4. Me thinks

That baby Kush is there to 'negotiate' nothing but more $$ for his business deals and tRump. We all know that the only thing forefront in either of these two, is how to walk away from this 'presidency' with more $$ stuffed into their pockets, tax-free, no less

I'm sure that's part of the reason Trump gave him that job.

Jared; tolerated in the right wing sphere as long as he is useful. When things go bad, it will become ‘blame the Jew’.


Breitbart had to be told by Trump to cut back on criticizing Jared.

12. Interesting take on it.

But haven't the Republicans been strong supporters of Israel for many years?

21. It's pretty much par for the course.

The right "loves" Jews because we are a part of their end times prophecies. Those who don't ascribe to that fantasy "love" Israel because it is a useful tool against the Arab dictatorships and monarchies, many with ties to Russia, so a continuing "cold war" of sorts. Those types have no love for Jews, but tend not to be like the third RW group, the hardcore anti-Semites, who "love" Israel, in the same way they "love" Africa, they see both places as somewhere they can send "undesirables", Jews and Black Americans, respectively. While the right does love its anti-Semitic conspiracies, the left is not too far behind, though they usually couch it in different dog whistles than the right.

20. Thank you.

I have seen many of your posts and you are one of the few who really seems to understand the concept of anti-Semitism and its ins and outs. I really appreciate your comments...and the cartoon, that sums it up!

11. "Piece of the Action" Plan more like it

Any negotiating Kushner does is highly likely to result in a cash flow directly to the Trump organization - which in their minds is more important that mere geographic stability.
