Trump's Son-in-Law Kushner Begins Peace Push With Middle East Talks

Trump's Son-in-Law Kushner Begins Peace Push With Middle East Talks

As per the global Law, the Jewish settlements in the West Bank, including Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem are illegal and are considered as one of the prime reasons for the disruption of peace in the region.

According to reports, Kushner conveyed Trump's personal condolences to the Malka family and asked to be briefed on the visit afterwards.

Israeli bulldozers on Wednesday embarked on razing lands belonging to Palestinians in order to make way for a new settlement to south to Nablus, in the occupied West Bank, local sources said.

While both Netanyahu and Abbas say they're eager to revive peace talks under the new administration, any conciliatory tone evident during Trump's visit has evaporated.

Netanyahu's government is also dominated by religious and nationalist hardliners who oppose Palestinian statehood and will fight any major concessions.

On Monday the White House announced that Kushner as well as Jason Greenblatt, a top United States national security aide, would meet Israeli and Palestinian leaders this week.

The Amichai settlement is every bit as illegal under global law as Amona, but the fact that it is being established formally by the government makes it different under Israeli law.

Until Monday, Israel supplied 120 MW of electricity to Gaza a month, which made up about one-quarter of the enclave's needs, with the PA paying the $12.65 million monthly bill.

During the visit, Malka's parents spoke of their daughter's bravery and patriotism, noting that she joined the elite Border Police following her IDF service in the Navy. The area, captured by Israel in 1967, is not sovereign Israeli territory and Palestinians there are not Israeli citizens and do not have the right to vote. And prospects look dim for Kushner and his envoy, Jason Greenblatt.

For decades, Republican and Democratic presidents have repeatedly failed at reaching what Trump calls "the ultimate deal".

On Tuesday, hours before Kushner's arrival, Netanyahu announced the beginning of work on a new settlement in the West Bank, and has talked of thousands more settlement homes, ramping up a policy that has always been a major obstacle to peace.

Through U.S. mediators, Israel and Saudi Arabia have discussed a variety of potential actions that would show their intention to develop open diplomatic relations once the conflict with the Palestinians is resolved, Kara said.
