The road to peace doesn’t run through Ramallah

President Donald Trump’s Middle East mediators, senior advisor Jared Kushner and chief negotiator Jason Greenblatt, are due in the Middle East this week to discuss aspects of their proposal for peace between Israel and the Palestinians with regional leaders.

Their visit will include stops in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Egypt, and Israel. They will not be visiting with Palestinian leaders. The Palestine Liberation Organization-controlled Palestinian Authority (PA) has been boycotting U.S. officials since Trump recognized that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital last December.

While Greenblatt and Kushner are not divulging details of their peace proposal, this weekend the Israeli media reported that they intend to ask Arab leaders to finance a $500 million humanitarian assistance program for Gaza, which is controlled by the Hamas terror group.

Among other things, Kushner and Greenblatt reportedly are interested in building electricity and water purification installations, as well as industrial parks, in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula, which borders Gaza. They envision these facilities serving both the Egyptians of the northern Sinai and the population of Gaza.

The PA responded with fury to the news of the Kushner-Greenblatt Gaza proposal. And its anger shows why there is no reason to be upset that the PA is boycotting U.S. officials.
