You just can't make this s--t up.

From The Hill, "Israeli settler leader: 'Kushner took a knife and put it in Netanyahu's back'":
An Israeli settler leader and supporter of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused senior White House adviser Jared Kushner of betraying the prime minister by slowing down the annexation of the West Bank.

David Elhayani, the chairman of the Yesha Council that manages more than 150 settlements, condemned Kushner for misleading Netanyahu after he endorsed President Trumpís Middle East peace plan, The Washington Post reported.

"Kushner took a knife and put it in Netanyahu's back," he told The Washington Post. "Kushner misled the prime minister. He misled everybody. He knew for a long time that Netanyahu wanted to declare sovereignty over the Jordan Valley and northern Dead Sea -- he said it many times over the last year. Gentlemen just donít act this way."

Elhayani continued saying that Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, may cost the prime minister the March 2 election if he pushes back on annexing the settlements right away.

The settler leader said a senior U.S. official told them that if the Palestinians didn't agree to the plan within 48 hours, Israel would be permitted to annex more than 30 percent of the West Bank.

"But something happened after that; they changed their minds," he said, according to the Post.
Once again, just so we're clear, in order to help Israel, President Trump:
- Pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal
- Appointed Nikki Haley to fight for Israel at the UN
- Pushed forward with a bill to give Israel $38 billion from US taxpayers
- Put maximum sanctions on Iran
- Endorsed the expansion of settlements
- Moved the US embassy to Jerusalem
- Cut all US aid to the Palestinians
- Backed Israel's annexation of the Golan Heights
- Outlawed criticism of Israel on college campuses by executive order
- Gave speeches commanding Americans to "love Israel"
- Assassinated Iranian General Qasem Soleimani
- Released a massively one-sided "Peace Deal" to rubber-stamp annexation of most of the West Bank and the entirety of Jerusalem
- Is allegedly going to release Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard to Israel in the coming weeks to aid Netanyahu's re-election campaign
Elhayani's issue is that Trump didn't approve the annexation fast enough and is now whining that that one single decision is "stabbing" Netanyahu in the back.
