    US offer to Palestinians

    The White House adviser Jared Kushner has set out what he calls a pathway towards peace in the Middle East. He told a conference in Bahrain that Washington's proposal for a cash injection into the Palestinian economy was a once-in-a-century opportunity. The Palestinian Authority is boycotting the event as it's not discussing a political solution. Israel's ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and UN Special Rapporteur on Palestine Michael Lynk speak to Today. (Image: Palestinian protest in Tel Aviv, credit: Getty Images)
