Egypt, Jordan and Morocco to attend U.S. peace plan conference in Bahrain

Egypt and Morocco have informed the White House they will attend the conference in Bahrain at which the Trump administration will launch the economic portion of its Israeli-Palestinian peace plan, U.S. official tells me, AXIOS noted. This comes after King Abdullah II announced Jordan would also attend. This is a big achievement for the White House peace team, led by Jared Kushner.

The White House has been asking Egypt, Jordan and Morocco to announce their participation for several weeks now but they all stalled due to pressure from the Palestinians, who are boycotting the conference. The Palestinian lobbying efforts appear to have failed. King Abdullah said today at a meeting with reporters that Jordan must attend every international meeting on the Palestinian issue -- including the Bahrain conference -- in order to know what is being discussed.

"We have to be in the room," he stressed. At the same briefing, he said the doesn't expect anything to happen this summer with the political part of the U.S. peace plan. King Abdullah echoed the widespread assessment in the region that new Israeli elections in September will delay the release of the political portion to at least November, and perhaps indefinitely.

Our synagogue partners with AIPAC, America's pro-Israel lobby, in educating our community on issues affecting the U.S.-Israel relationship. We encourage you to learn more by contacting AIPAC at (202) 639-5200 or by visiting .
