US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner has had “a very brief and stormy meeting” with Kuwait Ambassador to the United States, Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al Sabah, during which he conveyed the US administration’s annoyance with Kuwait’s position at the United Nations Security Council on the crisis in the occupied Palestinian territories”, Al-Rai newspaper reported informed US sources as saying.

The newspaper reported yesterday that Kushner reproached Sheikh Salem saying:

“The Kuwaiti behavior at the UN Security Council has embarrassed him personally in front of US administration officials as well as allied US countries which support our efforts to resolve the crisis.”

According to the source, Kushner revealed during his meeting with the Kuwaiti ambassador that “he was working with Saudi Arabia and Egypt on a joint Arab-American statement on the situation in Gaza”, adding that he did not know that Kuwait holds a different opinion to the Arab consensus, although it claims to represent the Arab bloc at the UN Security Council.

Last week Kuwait submitted a draft resolution at the UNSC demanding an international mission be set up to protect Palestinian civilians. The US used its power of veto to quash the plan.

Our Vision For Liberation: Engaged Palestinian Leaders & Intellectuals Speak Out


  1. When Israel and the dishonest broker, the US, fail to convince the nations of the world to condemn Hamas as the aggressor in Palestine, they resort to blackmail to achieve their aims. Thanks to those countries who stood up to an illegal Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the illegal blockade of Gaza. In my opinion the real terrorists are the Israeli State, who have been beaten up and brutalising the Palestinians for 70 years.

  2. What a joke! US efforts to “resolve the crisis”, eh? So how does a resolution calling for the protection of Palestinians from cold-blooded murder interfere with the US effort? Kushner surely has Palestinians best interests at heart, doesn’t he? These Zionist advisers have no shame, hence no truth, no legitimacy. Just like Trump.
