The Maui News: New headaches for Trump's Mideast hopes. Israeli PM Netanyahu is set to visit White House on Monday by Matthew Lee and Josh Lederman The Associated Press. Washington- "Under the best of circumstances, a Mideast peace deal is the Holy Grail of diplomacy, a goal that has eluded American Presidents for generations.
With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu(my mother's father's name, Benjamin)set to visit Washington this week, the mix of politics, personalities, and historical grievances that has stood in the way of Israeli-Palestinian peace is even more combustible than normal.
President Donald Trump's point man for mediation, Jared Kushner, is in the middle of a political firestorm, his PLAN remains a mystery and the Palestinian's arenen't even speaking to the White House. If that weren't enough, Netanyahu and Trump are both distracted by mushrooming legal investigations at home.
It's all contributing to an intensified pessimism in the U.S., Israel, and the West Bank about prospects for a Trump brokered initiative to succeed.
Kushner and a small team have spent the past year preparing a much- awaited BLUEPRINT for peace, but no details have emerged. Many in the region wonder whether the vaunted plan will ever materialize...."
'A MEDIATOR will have to mediate between two semi equal parties. Otherwise it's not a mediation process," said Husam Zomlot, the Palestinian ambassador to Washington, in a recent Associated Press interview. "You have to level the field and level your relationship between the two sides in order to be an honest mediator..."
The world may soon be able to judge for itself...former negotiators say Kushner's downgraded status probably will severely impair his ability to do the job.
Beneath the veneer of U.S. - Israeli unity, there is lingering disagreement and suspicion."
There is absolutely no doubt that any peace plan conceived by Donald Trump and his son in law Jared Kushner will NEVER manifest and is doomed to failure. As stated in this blog going back in time
"There is only ONE mediator between God and men; the man Christ Jesus." ITimothy 2:5.
I have put forth the "Blueprint" for achieving a permanent and lasting peace in the Middle East and the world. Jared Kushner has no such blueprint.
