Jared Kushner’s Deep Ties to Israel

by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)

Kushner is Trump’s son-in-law, appointed senior advisor to the president.

He heads the Kushner Companies real estate holding and development firm, among other business interests and investments.

Along with Jason Greenblatt, he’s involved in negotiating Israeli/Palestinian no-peace/peace talks.

Both are orthodox Jews, one-sidedly biased for Israel, unacceptable choices for an already deep flawed process, a colossal hoax, anti-peace and stability, seeking unconditional Palestinian surrender instead.

A NYT report indicated Israeli insurance company Menora Mivtachim invested about $30 million in the Kushner Companies, according to a Menora official.

In his financial disclosure forms, Kushner omitted information on the investment. Earlier, he and wife Ivanka were sued for failure to reveal assets valued at over $10 million.

He’s been working in the White House under an interim security clearance while investigators analyze his foreign investments. His permanent security clearance was stalled over omitting 100 foreign contacts before revising his forms three times.

Several filings showed his net worth together with Ivanka’s at from $206 – $760 million. They were both fined for late filings.

According to the Times, the previously undisclosed Menora investment was for “equity into 10 Maryland apartment complexes controlled by Mr. Kushner’s firm.”

“While Mr. Kushner has sold parts of his business since taking a White House job last year, he still has stakes in most of the family empire – including the apartment buildings in and around Baltimore.”

He’s connected to other Israeli business enterprises, “including one of the country’s wealthiest families and a large Israeli bank (Bank Hapoalim) that is the subject of a United States criminal investigation,” according to the Times, adding:

“(T)he Kushner Companies’ extensive financial ties to Israel continue to deepen, even with his prominent diplomatic role in the Middle East” – a major conflict of interest.

It automatically disqualifies him as an honest broker in any Israeli/Palestinian talks. Neither he or Greenblatt should have been assigned the role in the first place.

Kushner earlier partnered with a wealthy Israeli family, investing about $200 million in upscale Manhattan apartment buildings.

Since entering the White House, his business interests in Israel expanded. A White House statement lied, claiming he “takes the ethics rules very seriously and would never compromise himself or the administration.”

It expressed “confidence in the job (he’s) doing leading our (no-peace) peace efforts.”

His orthodox faith and extensive business ties to Israel reflect more evidence of a deeply flawed peace process.

It’s intended to subjugate Palestinians, not liberate them from oppressive occupation harshness.
