Jared Kushner Says It’s “Unfortunate” Europe Isn’t Taking in More Palestinian Refugees

21st March 2024

Jared Kushner says it’s “unfortunate” that Europe isn’t taking in more Palestinian refugees, suggesting that the “cleaning up” of Palestinians from the Gaza Strip should be accelerated.

Donald Trump’s son-in-law and former senior foreign policy advisor made the comments during a conversation with Professor Tarek Masoud.

“Gaza’s waterfront property could be very valuable … if people would focus on building up livelihoods,” Kushner told Masoud, Harvard University’s Middle East Initiative faculty chair.

“It’s a little bit of an unfortunate situation there, but from Israel’s perspective I would do my best to move the people out and then clean it up,” he added, using language some have suggested isn’t far removed from ethnic cleansing.
