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

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.


Kushner suggested Europe, despite being deluged by Middle Eastern migrants for years at great expense to both security and civil order, isn’t doing enough.

“In Syria, when there was refugees, Turkey took them, Europe took them, Jordan took them, for whatever reason here in Gaza … it’s unfortunate that nobody’s taking the refugees,” he remarked.

Kushner agreed that Israel possibly wouldn’t let Gazans return to the region after they were removed, adding, “I am not sure there is much left of Gaza at this point.”
