Kushner: Deal will prevent settlement expansion

White House senior adviser Jared Kushner on Wednesday briefed senators behind closed doors on the Trump administration’s Middle East peace plan, White House officials told Barak Ravid of Channel 13 News.

According to the report, Kushner told a bipartisan group from the Senate Foreign Relations committee that the international reaction to the plan was encouraging despite the Palestinian Authority’s (PA) swift rejection of the plan.

Kushner’s briefing was part of an effort to build support for the plan in Washington and overseas, reported Ravid.

Using a power point presentation, Kushner pointed to two factors making a solution harder to reach: Increased dependence of Palestinian leaders on foreign aid, and increasing expansion by Israeli leaders of communities in Judea and Samaria.
