Kushner: Middle East Peace Plan Will be 'Good Starting Point'

"What we will be able to put together is a solution that we believe is a good starting point", he said.

"If you say "two-state", it means one thing to the Israelis, it means one thing to the Palestinians", he said on Thursday at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

"What we want to do is put something out that we think is based on logic where unquestionably we can say that this will lead to the Palestinian people living a much better life", he added.

"We're building a very good business plan with a strong economic component for how Palestinians can move forward economically", he said.

Israel built almost 1800 settlement units per year during the last 10 years before 2018, however, in 2018, the number has increased to 2000 housing units, the report said, adding that the figure is likely to increase in 2019 ahead of the USA announcement of the so-called Deal of the Century, and the entry of right-wing parties into the Israeli government.

"A deal may mean that a party agrees to sell its property as a result of bankruptcy, that is, it entails a winning party and a loser one, a term used in the real estate industry and television entertainment games", he added.

Kushner, who has been developing the plan with Middle East envoy Jason Greenblatt, has said the proposal is not an effort to impose US will on the region.

The long-awaited Middle East peace plan is taking shape.

Trump pick Stephen Moore drops out of Federal Reserve race
Earlier Thursday, Moore had told Bloomberg TV that he was " all in " and that he expected to be nominated within three weeks. Moore has said that he took a "mistaken deduction" and that he's subsequently overpaid his taxes.

Demolitions in East Jerusalem have increased at an astonishing rate over the past month, leaving dozens of displaced Palestineans and others who lost their livelihoods overnight.

Kushner, who is also widely distrusted by the Palestinians for his family ties with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said Trump asked him before his Jerusalem decision how it would affect peace prospects.

The effort by Kushner and Jason Greenblatt, special representative for global negotiations, has been conducted without participation from the Palestinians.

"What I see in the region is that the big divide now is you have leaders that are trying to empower their people and create more opportunity for them to have a better life", Kushner noted. He said that recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel made his job "harder", but will help a peace agreement in the long term.

Our approach has been, if we're going to fail, we don't want to fail doing it the same way it's been done in the past.

When you work for a president, you try hard not to disappoint, but you can disappoint.

But Mr Kushner, whose role in government alongside his wife Ivanka Trump has drawn heated criticism on ethical grounds, is at least assured of support in one key corner. When you work for your father-in-law, you can't disappoint.
