Kushner Unveils Economic Portion of Middle East Peace Plan

Jared Kushner
The White House on Saturday outlined a $50 billion Middle East economic plan designed by Jared Kushner that would create a global investment fund to lift the Palestinian and neighboring Arab state economies, and fund a $5 billion transportation corridor to connect the West Bank and Gaza, reports Reuters.

It appears to be a mix between a sophomore college paper from a clueless kid and a crony plan with infrastructure this and "business projects" that.

More from Reuters:
The "peace to prosperity" plan, set to be presented by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner at an international conference in Bahrain next week, includes 179 infrastructure and business projects, according to details of the plan and interviews with U.S. officials. The approach toward reviving the moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace process was criticized by the Palestinians on Saturday...
"This is completely out of sequence because the Israeli-Palestinian issue is primarily driven by historical wounds and overlapping claims to land and sacred space," said Aaron David Miller, a former Middle East negotiator for Republican and Democratic administrations.
