Jared Kushner is Finalizing President Trump's Mid-East Peace Plan

Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, who represents Israel's Sephardic Jews of Middle Eastern and North African descent reportedly blessed the couple before they attended the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem Monday, which sparked criticism worldwide. "You know, we'll see if there's peace, but we'll definitely remember".

"As Israel turns 70, the seek for an enduring peace turns over a brand new leaf: one among realism and of not being afraid to face strongly with our allies for what is sweet, for what is true, and for what's true", Kushner stated Monday.

Monday's slated opening of the new embassy follows Trump's recognition in December of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a decision he said fulfilled decades of policy pledges in Washington and formalized realities on the ground.

In a 2017 interview, Ward said that both Kushner and Trump have been running their own agenda since Donald Trump took office, says Page Six. While the president was not in attendance during the dedication ceremony, he was represented by his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner. "I believe peace is within reach if we dare to believe the future can be different from the past". He was accompanied by a recorded message from his father-in-law, Donald Trump.

The legislature could also vote to override Rauner's changes and enact the original language with a two-thirds majority vote. Sue Scherer of Decatur said she had to review the details of the governor's action before taking a position.

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump reportedly received a blessing in Jerusalem on Sunday from Israel's Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef - who was condemned by the Anti-Defamation League earlier this year for comparing black people to monkeys.

Yosef used the Hebrew word 'kushi, ' which although it was used in the Bible is now considered a derogatory term for black people. "So they had a monkey as a son, a son like this, so you say the blessing on him".
