The 20 Worst Political Scandals In History

WASHINGTON D.C. — As President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, tours the middle east hoping for a breakthrough in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, the Palestinians have grown more and more pessimistic about reaching an accord.

Kushner met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas Thursday after visiting Egypt, Jordan, and the Persian Gulf earlier in the week, according to Bloomberg.

While Kushner said Trump is "very committed to achieving a solution here that will be able to bring prosperity and peace to all people in this area," and Netanyahu responded that the objectives "are within our reach," Abbas appeared to grow increasingly frustrated, saying only, "there is nothing impossible with good efforts."

Palestinian protesters chanted anti-Trump slogans and burned an Israeli flag on Thursday. One demonstrator held a sign showing Trump's daughter, Ivanka, leading Kushner on a leash.

Palestinian officials are disappointed that the Trump administration will not publicly support the creation of a Palestinian state. And unlike President Obama, Trump has not pressed the Israeli government to freeze settlements in the West Bank as a precondition for peace talks.

"This new administration has been very disappointing, and Palestinians do not see any hope," said Ghassan Khatib, a former Palestinian Authority cabinet member and lecturer in political science at Bir Zeit University near Ramallah, in the Bloomberg report. "It looks like this delegation was sent to give the impression that the process is still alive."
