WEB Notes: Israel always blows the opportunity at peace with their continued blockade of Gaza and their on going demolitions of Palestinian homes which they do in order to expand Israeli building. This of course is the desired outcome…
Peace seems like something that will never take place. Our Father’s Letter tells us there will be no true peace until Christ returns (1 Thessalonians 5:3). We may see a perceived peace at some point in time, but nothing of real lasting value.
Jared Kushner’s second visit to the Mideast is widely perceived as a Seinfeld-like show about nothing—and the Israelis love it.
Seeking President Trump’s “ultimate deal”—peace between Israelis and Palestinians—Kushner arrived in Jerusalem and Ramallah this week, where few could point to any progress made in promoting a deal between the parties. White House officials say they’re keeping mum on progress by design, but commentators in the Israeli and Palestinian press claim there is little substance behind the first son-in-law’s diplomacy.
And that’s just fine by Israeli government officials, who quietly express hope that Kushner’s latest trip, and perhaps future ones as well, will yield no earth-shaking results.
