  • U.S. Special Envoy Greenblatt Keeps Challenging Palestinian Leadership
    Jason Greenblatt, the U.S. Special Envoy for Middle East negotiations, has been engaged in a Twitter debate for the last two days with Palestinian Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh over the direction of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process. When Shtayyeh accused the U.S. of declaring “financial war” on the Palestinians after the Trump administration slashed hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, Greenblatt responded, “This is U.S. taxpayer money – it goes to our allies & those that will work with us for positive change. Palestinian leaders chose to end that relationship – we hope they will work with us in the coming months for a better future for all.”
    After Shtayyeh tweeted back restating Palestinian demands, Greenblatt responded: “Basically, you’re saying: give us the deal we demand, or no deal. That’s consistent with Palestinian prior attempts. How has that worked out for Palestinians? Do you want to lead your people to opportunity & prosperity or just keep saying the same tired lines over & over again?” (Jerusalem Post)
