Nobel Prize Worthy? Arab Nations Work Toward Peace With Jerusalem

The peace deals that were diligently worked on by Jared Kushner and his team have brought Israel’s Arab neighbors to Jerusalem. Based on these peace negotiations many Arab Muslims from these nations have been able, for the first time, to visit Israel’s capital.

Jared Kushner, the White House adviser under former President Trump, was nominated Sunday for the Nobel Peace Prize over his efforts in negotiating deals between Israel, the United Arab Emirates and other countries in the region over a hectic four-month period last year.
Reuters reported that Kushner and Avi Berkowitz, his former deputy, were nominated by Alan Dershowitz, the professor emeritus of Harvard Law School. Reuters called the deals the “most significant diplomatic breakthroughs in the Middle East in 25 years,” and many Trump supporters said the media downplayed their magnitude in order to hurt his chances at reelection.
The Trump administration brokered peace agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco. Kushner told Fox News in October that there have been “people in Washington for 30, 40 years” who were “never able to work on a single foreign transaction.”
He joked that peace deals are “much harder than President Trump is making them look.”
Kushner said “people have been very critical of the president over the last three years for whatever he does… but the reality is he’s taken a different approach on how to deal with Washington, he took a different approach in the Middle East and he’s put up results.”
Bahrain joined the United Arab Emirates at a festive White House ceremony in the fall marking the “Abraham Accords,” a pair of U.S.-brokered diplomatic pacts with Israel.
