Kushner says he hopes Israel waits on sovereignty steps in West Bank
White House senior adviser Jared Kushner said Washington wants Israel to wait until after its March 2 election before making any moves toward settlement annexation in the West Bank, following the announcement of a U.S. peace plan.
Kushner, an architect of the peace proposal hailed by Israel and rejected by the Palestinians, raised the stop sign in a video interview, posted on the Internet on Thursday, with GZERO Media, a subsidiary of risk analysis firm Eurasia Group.
In the interview, he also voiced U.S. displeasure with the Palestinians, who rejected the plan announced by U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday, accusing them of playing “the victimhood card” and passing up an opportunity for a state.
