Daniel Shapiro, who served as USA ambassador to Israel under President Barack Obama, echoed the dim outlook and noted another problem - the deep-seated mistrust between Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) Britain's Prince William on Sunday praised "historic ties and friendship" with Jordan and the kingdom's commitment to Syrian and Palestinian refugees, as he began a historic five-day tour that also includes Israel and the Palestinian territories. "This conflict has held the whole region back and there is so much untapped potential that can be released if peace is achieved".
Kushner made the comments to a Palestinian newspaper after holding separate talks in the region with the leaders of Israel, Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia. The officials said Kushner's statements had failed to convince "even one Palestinian" that the USA administration was capable of playing any role in a peace process.
Palestinian leaders have refused to meet with the Trump team since the president recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.
After stops in Tel Aviv, Jaffa, and Jerusalem, Prince William will go to Ramallah in the West Bank, where he will meet Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. The Palestinians want their own future state with a capital in East Jerusalem.
"President Abbas says that he is committed to peace and I have no reason not to believe him", Kusnher said.
Kushner said that the peace plan would be unveiled "soon".
"If there's any plan, this is being implemented on the ground; with moving the US Embassy to occupied Jerusalem, withdrawing support for the two-state solution, cutting funds to [UN relief agency for Palestine] UNRWA and, eventually, trying to normalise the Israeli apartheid in Palestine", Erekat told MEE.
