Dozens Killed in Gaza as Trump Promises "Lasting Peace"

Jared Kushner is Finalizing President Trump’s Mid East Peace Plan

"We believe, it is possible for both sides to gain more than they give - so that all people can live in peace - safe from danger, free from fear, and able to pursue their dreams", Kushner will say, according to speech excerpts seen by Reuters.

Yosef was condemned by the Anti-Defamation League earlier this year for making the crude remarks.

The exact word Yosef used was "kushi", a term "in modern Hebrew [that] has pejorative connotations", the Times of Israel reported at the time. "You know, we'll see if there's peace, but we'll definitely remember. So they had a monkey as a son, a son like this, so you say the blessing on him".

"Racially charged comment made by Israeli Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef, comparing people of color to "monkeys", is utterly unacceptable", the Jewish civil rights organization posted in a tweet.

In response, the rabbi's office said that he was merely citing the Talmud, which states that the same blessing is recited upon seeing an elephant, a monkey or an ape.

When the Trump administration announced its intention to move its US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, global leaders and foreign-policy experts predicted an early end to Jared Kushner's "ultimate deal".

In the past few years he implied that secular women behave like animals due to their immodest dress and claimed 2016 that according to Jewish law, non-Jews were forbidden from living in Israel.
