Jared Kushner Is Preparing for Another Face-to-Face Meeting with M.B.S.

Vanity Fair - 02-21


This weekend, Jared Kushner will board a military plane and embark on a six-country trip to present foreign diplomats with part of his long-awaited proposal to solve an epic quandary and bring peace to the Middle East. Kushner has said that he and the other members of the trip, including Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, State Department policy adviser Brian Hook, and deputy assistant to the president Avi Berkowitz, will not present the full peace plan until after the Israeli elections in April. Instead, they will gauge support for various economic incentives in the proposal, including foreign aid for the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. These enticements are intended to persuade Palestinian officials to seek a broader deal.
