Kushner unveils economic part of 'deal of the century' Middle East peace plan
The White House has unveiled a $50bn Palestinian investment and infrastructure proposal aimed at supporting its much-anticipated but still unreleased “deal of the century” Middle East peace plan.


The scheme, which calls for a mix of public and private financing and intends to create at least a million new jobs for Palestinians, was posted to the White House website before a two-day conference in Bahrain.

The so-called “Peace to Prosperity” workshop in Manama on Tuesday and Wednesday is being held amid heavy skepticism about its viability, and outright opposition from Palestinian leaders.

Speaking to Reuters on Saturday, Donald Trump’s adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner, who is behind the plan, said: “I laugh when [Palestinian leaders] attack this as the ‘deal of the century’. This is going to be the opportunity of the century if they have the courage to pursue it.”

Kushner said some Palestinian business executives had confirmed their participation in Bahrain, but declined to identify them. The overwhelming majority of the Palestinian business community will not attend, businessmen in the West Bank city of Ramallah told Reuters.

Several Gulf Arab states, including Saudi Arabia, will attend. Their presence, some US officials say privately, appears intended in part to curry favor with Trump as he takes a hard line against Iran.

The White House said it decided against inviting the Israeli government because the Palestinian Authority would not be there. There will instead be a small Israeli business delegation.

With no official participation from the two main protagonists and scant enthusiasm from others, and amid continued uncertainty and strong doubts over the plan’s political vision and the potential US-Iran conflict, expectations for Kushner’s conference remain decidedly low.

The plan calls for projects worth $27.5bn in the West Bank and Gaza, and $9.1bn, $7.4bn and $6.3bn for Palestinians in Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon respectively. The projects envisioned are in the healthcare, education, power, water, high-tech, tourism and agriculture sectors.

“Generations of Palestinians have lived under adversity and loss but the next chapter can be defined by freedom and dignity,” the White House said, calling the plan “the most ambitious international effort for the Palestinian people to date”.

But White House officials have also played down expectations for the Manama conference, which will put Kushner just across the Gulf from Iran.

Kushner himself is calling the event a “workshop” instead of a conference, concerning a “vision” instead of an actual plan. He also stressed that governments will not be expected to make financial pledges on the spot.

President Kushner has clearly outdone himself with this deal for the global elite.

The United States is not considering a one-state resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, US special envoy Jason Greenblatt told PBS NewsHour in an interview aired on Thursday. “Our plan does not contemplate one state,” he said.

 Quoting: luke the duke


White House senior adviser Jared will travel to Jerusalem and several other capitals in the Middle East next week to discuss how to move forward with the Trump administration’s Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, senior U.S. officials told me.


This will be an important trip for the progress of the U.S. peace plan — both the economic and political components. The White House is currently in discussions over the timing for revealing the political part of the U.S. peace plan, which has been thrown off as a result of new elections being called in Israel.


President Trump’s special envoy to the Middle East Jason Greenblatt said in an interview with PBS last week that the White House is considering whether or not to release the political part of the peace plan before the Sept. 17 elections. Greenblatt said that no decision has been made and that President Trump will be the one to make the final call.

It's also possible Kushner’s discussions in the region will deal with the political part of the peace plan

I'm surprised more Christians aren't interested in this subject anymore, this used to be the pinnacle for End time Prophecy stuff...
