Kushner: Middle East Peace Plan Guarantees Muslims Access to Al-Aqsa

(Arab News-Saudi Arabia) Ray Hanania - The U.S. peace plan will guarantee the Muslim world access to holy sites in Jerusalem, senior White House advisor Jared Kushner said Wednesday. "Israel, at America's behest, reaffirmed and appreciates the role of the King of Jordan with regard to the Muslim holy sites and made a firm commitment saying that any Muslim who wants to come and pray at the mosque is welcome to do so," Kushner said. "The Al-Aqsa Mosque is not under attack and Jerusalem is an open city and all Muslims are welcome who want to come and pray peacefully." "Basically the Palestinians have an opportunity for a state and have a capital in east Jerusalem," he added. He said that if the Palestinians join the process, Israel will be flexible to negotiate issues and specifics of the plan. But if they refuse, the U.S. will move on to other priorities.
