The administration does not want the political part of its plan to become an issue for the Israeli elections, explains one of the sources. Both sources have talked with the Kushner-Greenblatt team recently, following team Netanyahu’s inability to form a coalition last month.
There are Palestinian leaders who say the Trump administration is trying to buy the Palestinian people, in revealing their economic plan first.
One of the sources explains that Kushner and Greenblatt see the two as going “in conjunction” with each other and they know after the political plan comes out, that is where the focus will be.
Greenblatt wrote Sunday, “We fully recognize that our economic plan cannot be successful without a political agreement, just as a political agreement would have little chance without an effective economic plan. The elements of the conflict must be dealt with to unlock the incredible potential of the Palestinian and regional economy.”
