‘A New Era’: Knesset Launches Caucus to Promote Regional Peace (VIDEO REPORT)

Israeli and American leaders celebrate one-year anniversary of Abraham Accords in Jerusalem

Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, on Monday launched the Abraham Accords Caucus in a bid to advance peace in the Middle East.

The US-brokered Abraham Accords were signed by Israel, the UAE and Bahrain at the White House on Sept. 15, 2020. Morocco later joined the agreement, and Sudan has agreed to join but has not yet finalized the deal.

Chaired by lawmakers Ofir Akunis (Likud) and Ruth Wasserman Lande (Blue and White), the event featured several notable speakers, including former Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, presently leader of the opposition; Jared Kushner and his wife Ivanka Trump; Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, and Defense Minister Benny Gantz.

To mark the one-year anniversary of the accords, and to inaugurate former US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman’s new project “The Friedman Center for Peace through Strength,” a gala event was later held at the Museum of Tolerance in Jerusalem.

Ambassador Friedman presented the Center’s first “Peace through Strength Award” to former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
