Jared Kushner Trying to Revive Arab-Israeli Peace Talks

27 June 2017

In a brief media appearance with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem, the Israeli leader welcomed Kushner in the spirit of the two nation's common goals: security, prosperity, and peace.

The Palestinian side is very suspicious of the American mediators, especially Kushner and U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, who also attended Wednesday's meeting with Netanyahu.

Ramallah- A meeting held on Thursday between Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and US President's Advisors Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt was "tense and strained", well-informed Palestinian sources told Asharq Al-Awsat newspaper.

President Donald Trump's son in law and chief Mideast adviser, Jared Kushner, is headed to Jerusalem for his first working visit in hopes of laying the ground work for a peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians.

The incident took place at the Vagabond Inn in the 200 block of South Gaffey Street just before 7:25 p.m., officials said. Officials said children between the ages of six and 10 were in the pool when the SUV crashed down into the swimming pool.

President Obama's last ambassador to Israel, Daniel Shapiro, praised Kushner for mourning Malka's death, and confirmed to The Intercept that the Obama Administration had also described Palestinian attacks on Israeli soldiers as terrorism.

"We face a renewed opportunity with the support of President Trump", he said, a day after USA envoys Jared Kushner and Jason Greenblatt left the region after meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders, without reaching any proclaimed results.

An Israeli newspaper says the government is preparing to authorize construction of 7,000 new homes in Jewish areas of east Jerusalem - a move that could complicate the efforts of USA envoy Jared Kushner to restart peace talks.

Abbas wants a two-state solution, which would give Palestine its own territory, including the settlement area in the West Bank. "The three United States officials discussed Israel's priorities and potential next steps with Prime Minister Netanyahu, acknowledging the critical role Israel plays in the security of the region", it said in a statement.

It is believed that sub-standard cladding material used in a recent refurbishment contributed to the rapid spread of the fire . The towers were refurbished by Rydon - the same company involved in the multimillion pound refit of Grenfell Tower .

Netanyahu has in the past given conditional backing to two states. "If the investigations drag on for a long period of time and there begin to be questions raised about the future of his administration, that will contribute to a lessening of his leverage".

In Israel, Kushner met with the family of an Israeli border policewoman killed by a Palestinian terrorist.

In reference to Trump's earlier trip to the Middle East, Netanyahu said the president "made an indelible impression on the people of Israel".

But it remains unclear what approach Mr Trump, via Mr Kushner and Mr Greenblatt, plans to take on resolving one of the world's most intractable conflicts.
