GUEST: Sonya Meyerson-Knox, Media Program Manager with Jewish Voice for Peace.
BACKGROUND: President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner thinks he knows enough about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to solve it. The White House advisor has apparently been working on a secret peace plan for two years and traveled to Israel in late May to roll it out. But his arrival coincided with the political chaos in Israel as newly re-elected Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a coalition government.
Meanwhile, Kushner's position on Palestinian self-determination was on full view during a recent Axios interview where he doubted Palestinians' ability to rule themselves. Separately at a private event State Secretary, Mike Pompeo's remarks were leaked to the Washington Post where he claimed that Kushner's plan was, "unexecutable."
