Senior White House advisor Jared Kushner has called Palestinian authorities to adopt Trump’s so-called peace plan,  and said that the deal may be last hope for Palestinians in the Middle East.

“If you don’t accept this as a major opportunity for Palestinians and a major step forward, then I just think you have unrealistic expectations, and again, you’re probably stuck with the people who have been busy turning this into a cottage industry and not solving this problem,” Kushner told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in a video interview earlier this week.

Ali Abunimah, the co-founder of The Electronic Intifada and author of the book “The Battle for Justice in Palestine,” during speaking with Radio Sputnik’s Loud and Clear touched important points about the so-called peace plan unveiled by Trump and its future impact on Israeli-Palestinian relations. “

“Kushner, whose father-in-law is President Trump, appeared to echo this belief as he explicitly stated in his interview with Amanpour that the president, via his deal, was able to deliver for the Palestinians a pathway to state, contiguous territory and the conditions where they can earn their way to their independence, their dignity,” Abunimah said.

Abunimah considered that the former US President Bill Clinton was strong and honest mediator in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Clinton has been willing to come out and say openly what others and not willing to say openly,” he said.

Expert also stressed that similar approach has been proceeded by Trump administration as like previous administrations on the regulation of the political situation in the Palestinian region.

“The Bush administration and the Obama administration basically agreed that Israel would get all the big settlements. Trump agrees with that,” he noted.

While Abunimah was speaking about the impact the deal will have, he predicted that there will be continuation of staus quo, because of international community’s hypocrisy when it comes to Israel.  He emphasized that Israel’s annexation of Jerusalem and proceeded same policy with the Golan Heights are violations of the international law, and the European Union and the United States did not impose sanctions on Tel-Aviv. Trump administration has recognized both annexations by Israel as legitimate and de-facto legitimate.

Abunimah highlighted that the US, Canada and the EU have imposed sanctions on Moscow with regard to Russia’s annexation of Crimea.

  “This is the same European Union, the same United States, that have done nothing but reward Israel and embrace the Israeli officials … who are pushing annexation, who are building settlements, who are demolishing Palestinian homes and so on, and so forth,” he said.
