Jared Kushner's Israel-Palestine "deal of the century" is looking more like it will be closer to an "offer you can't refuse" rather than a grand compromise.


Here's two highlights from his recent interview with Axios via Slate:
Swan: Do you believe that the Palestinians are capable of governing themselves without Israeli interference?

Kushner: I think that's a very good question. I think that that's one that we'll have to see. The hope is is that they, over time, can become capable of governing ...

Swan: They being the Palestinians.

Kushner: The Palestinians. I think there are some things that the current Palestinian government has done well and there are some things that are lacking. And I do think that in order for the area to be investable, for investors to come in and want to invest in different industries and infrastructure and create jobs, you do need to have a fair judicial system, freedom of press, freedom of expression, tolerance for all religions, and so ...

Swan: Can they have freedom from any Israeli government or military interference?

Kushner: I think that it's a high bar.
Here's more:
Swan: Do you believe the Palestinian people deserve their own independent sovereign state with a capital in East Jerusalem?

Kushner: There's a difference between the technocrats and there's a difference between the people.

They want the opportunity to pay their mortgage, to have ...

Swan: You don't think they want their own state, free from Israeli government and military?

Kushner: I think that they want an opportunity.
Everyone wants the opportunity to pay a mortgage, folks.

As human beings, fundamentally, we all crave an opportunity to owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to Kushner's banker friends at Goldman Sachs with an adjustable-rate mortgage.

That's who we are!
