Excellency,

Be the first to know - Join our Facebook page.


We were deeply troubled to hear about the March 13 attack on your motorcade. We are relieved that you are unharmed, and we wish a speedy recovery to your injured staff. We are pleased to see that you continue to have the fortitude to proceed with your plans to open NGEST. As you know well, NGEST is not only a key component for providing needed relief to Gazans, but also a symbol of how key international and regional partnerships can bring about progress there.

This attack underscores that only the Palestinian Authority, in cooperation with regional and international partners, can provide Gaza with a freer, more prosperous future in which Gazans can fully utilize their potential. Gaza needs responsible and responsive governance– not militant and extremist groups that seek conflict and are profoundly unfit to govern. Yesterday’s incident demonstrates once again that Hamas is profoundly unfit to govern Gaza.

Please convey our best wishes for recovery to those injured. Working together, we can bring a better future to all Palestinians.

Sincerely,

Jared Kushner
