What’re the chances the liberal organization responsible for gratuitously awarding Barack Obama a Nobel Peace Prize for absolutely nothing will similar grant members of Trump’s administration with the same recognition?
Slim to none, but in this case it’s actually deserved.
Lest we forget: Under Trump’s leadership, massive developments occurred in regards to peace in the Middle East. Historical breakthroughs between Israel and multiple Arab countries resulted in what just a year before was considered unthinkable. Trade deals, travel agreements, and other concessions were made between two rivaling factions with centuries of conflict between them.
And of course, Trump and his team barely received any recognition from the mainstream press despite their huge achievements and massive success in brokering peace between Israel and the Arab world.
Not only that, but Joe Biden essentially squandered most of the hard work put into securing Middle East peace after a disastrous withdrawal mission from Afghanistan sent the region back in to chaos.
Let’s see what happens, maybe the liberal Euros responsible for handing out the prizes will honor the historic breakthrough secured by the Trump administration.
Jared Kushner and Avi Berkowitz, Kushner’s deputy, were nominated for the Nobel Prize in recognition of their work leading negotiations on the Abraham Accords.
The Abraham Accords included four normalization agreements between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Sudan, Morocco, and Bahrain. Kushner is recognized for bringing together regional leaders to establish alliances in an effort to counter Iran’s influence in the Middle East.
Republican congressman and New York gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin submitted the nomination and said Kushner’s work was significant amid rising tensions surrounding “centuries-old conflict.”
“The Abraham Accords, signed in 2020, represent the most significant diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and Arab nations in decades,” Zeldin wrote in his nomination.
Kushner and Berkowitz were also nominated last year by former Trump attorney Alan Dershowitz. Maria Ressa and Dmitry Muratov won the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize for their efforts to safeguard freedom of expression.
Kushner said the nomination was humbling.
“Thanks to the visionary leaders and efforts of millions of Israelis and Arabs, the Abraham Accords continue to strengthen, making the Middle East — and the world — a safer, more prosperous place,” Kushner told the New York Post.
Good luck, boys!
