‘Peace plan won’t be made public until after Shavuot’

Jason Greenblatt, the US envoy for international negotiations, told Fox News in an interview on the weekend that the so-called “Deal of the Century”, as the Trump administration’s peace plan has come to be known, will not be released until at least after Ramadan, the formation of a new Israeli government and the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which ends on the evening of June 10.

Greenblatt, who has been working on the peace plan with President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman for the last two years, was asked in the interview about the Palestinian Authority (PA) leadership’s decision to dismiss the deal before even seeing it.

Greenblatt maintained that he was “hopeful for the sake of the Palestinian people that they get a chance to see it.”

“It’s terribly frustrating for ordinary Palestinians. I meet with them frequently, and this is the message they tell me. They understand they may not like aspects of the plan but are upset that their leaders are saying they won’t even take a look at it. I feel terrible for the Palestinian people,” he told Fox News.http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/263005
