Political chaos in Israel deals blow to Jared Kushner's peace plan

Snap polls threaten Trump’s ‘deal of the century’ as his son-in-law visits Jerusalem

Jared Kushner’s visit to Jerusalem to promote his troubled Middle East peace plan appeared to abruptly lose its remaining energy after an overnight crisis in Israeli politics plunged the country into a months-long election campaign.

With no guarantees Benjamin Netanyahu’s Trump-friendly government will stay in power past the summer, any progress made with Kushner – Donald Trump’s son-in-law and adviser – is at risk of being revoked by the next Israeli administration.

One month after Israelis voted in a national poll, Netanyahu failed to form a government by a midnight deadline on Wednesday and chose to push parliament to disband rather than risk political foe Benny Gantz snatching the premiership from his grasp.

New elections are set for 17 September, and the next government may not take power until October, possibly later.

3. Israel has a history of jailing corrupt Prime Ministers

 

It is extraordinary that Bibi failed to form a coalition government with small party led by Avigdor Lieberman.

Bibi is facing corruption charges, and his wife Sara, has agreed to a plea deal in a catering case.

Israel has a history of jailing top government officials for crimes committed while in office, former PM Ehud Olmert and former President Moshe Katsav.

It is against this background that Jared Kushner waltzes in with his peace plan. I am curious to know what Kushner's financial angle is on this deal of his. Jared is as corrupt as his father and father-in-law. Surely there is a money making scheme in all of this.
