“The Israelis are very happy that they can get cheaper flights now by flying through Dubai. I also know many Muslims who are happy that they can now fly through Dubai to Tel Aviv to go and visit the Al-Aqsa Mosque, ”he said.

“Israel also continues to regard the King of Jordan as the custodian of the Al-Aqsa Mosque which is now opened to all Muslims,” he continued.

“We can make Muslims come and pray at Al-Aqsa freely and peacefully. More and more people around the world will realize that Al-Aqsa is not being attacked, the mosque is open, and will hopefully reduce the existing tensions between Israel, Muslims and the world based on some historic anti-Semitic divisions that have been around for too long, ”Kushner continued.

“Obviously, historic breakthrough, this is the first peace agreement in the region in 26 years, and only the third in 70 years with Israel. So, I think this gives a lot of great optimism that the Middle East shouldn’t be caught up in past conflicts, “he added.
