Jared Kushner is taking an interesting approach to the Peace Process.

BTW, I thought he was under investigation by Mueller, whatever happened to that?

Israel and America are not members of the International Criminal Court, but the State of Palestine is. Therefore, Palestine has a perfect right to urge the ICC to investigate alleged war crimes committed by Israel on its territory, which include the disproportionate use of force, the failure to distinguish between combatants and non-combatants, and the transfer of Israel's civilian population into occupied territory for the purposes of colonization, all of which are war crimes according to the Rome Statute that governs the ICC. 

So Palestine is being punished for obeying international law, while lawless Israel is rewarded with 3.8 billion dollars a year in free American weapons which it then turns around and uses to commit war crimes.

The Palestinians accused the administration of dismantling decades of U.S. engagement with them.

Which has lead to zero peace. Try something new.

Standing up to Israel would be the new thing to do.

Maybe if the Palestinians wouldn’t embrace terrorism as much and would stop trying to attack the Jewish nation didn’t maybe they would be in this situation.

The PLO is a recognized terrorist organization and routinely attacks civilians. It has been that way for decades.

The PLO has a stated goal of the destruction of Israel.

That is unacceptable for any organization which hopes to become a country. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Palestinian_suicide_attacks#Total_number_of_injuries_and_fatalities,_by_year Gotta love using a suicide bomber on a bus. Classy. /s

Organizations that use suicide attacks are terrorists.
