Kushner, Amateur Diplomat, Blows Middle East Gig

kushner diplomatA word of advice to the guy-currently-residing-in-the-White-House: Don’t send an amateur to try and end a 70 year old Middle East Conflict. No matter what your greatly inflated ego tells you, simply being a Trump, or Trump-in-Law, doesn’t part the waters.

I’m not sure which is more ludicrous – that Trump thought Kushner was the boy for the job, or that Kushner thought he had a clue what he was doing.

As ABC News reports:

In an interview with the New York Times in November, Trump said he “would love to be able to be the one that made peace with Israel and the Palestinians” adding that it “would be such a great achievement.” Kushner, who is Jewish, “knows the region, knows the people, knows the players,” Trump told the Times in the same interview. The night before his inauguration, Trump reportedly told Kushner, “If you can’t produce peace in the Middle East, nobody can.”

WHAT?

Why, because he’s vacationed in Israel, his Daddy knows Netanyahu, and Bibi has visited Kushner’s family in the U.S.? That’s what passes for diplomatic creds now? Hell, if any random Jewish person has a leg up on Middle East peace, why not send Adam Sandler, or Billy Crystal; at least they’re entertaining… and likable.

But let’s look at just a partial recap of previous attempts at peace in the Middle East, shall we? (You can read the details of each at BBC News.)

 And those guys weren’t AMATEURS.

The merry band of Nazis, Neophytes, Nincompoops and Knuckleheads currently infesting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue treat world affairs like a board game. What’s next, Sean Spicer negotiating with ISIL?

Should Bored Little Rich Boys Engage In U.S. Foreign Policy?

 As Politico reported:

Gen. H.R. McMaster

National Security Advisor Gen. H.R. McMaster said he’s “not concerned” following reports that President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner may have discussed setting up diplomatic backchannels to Moscow during the presidential transition. McMaster told American reporters traveling with Trump at the G7 summit in Sicily that the U.S. frequently sets up backchannels to countries for discreet communications. “We have backchannel communications with a number of countries,” McMaster said in response to questions. “What that allows you to do is communicate in a discreet manner so I’m not concerned.”

U.S. OFFICIALS using “back-channels” is quite different than this punk playing spy games behind the government’s back.  Newsweek offered up a little more detail about Kushner’s possible intentions:

kushner

Trump’s son-in-law and senior aide Jared Kushner sought to establish a back channel with the Kremlin through its embassy in Washington, allegedly bypassing U.S. intelligence communications systems to discuss a quid-pro-quo to benefit Trump’s friends when the president lifted American sanctions on Russia…

secret agentThis know-nothing, bored little rich boy, with NOT A SHRED of  government, let alone U.S. foreign policy experience, shouldn’t be communicating with ANY foreign government, “back channel” or not.

Let him play Secret Agent with his kids… at home.
