Constitutional legal expert Alan Dershowitz says the Abraham Accords negotiated between Israel and Arab nations by former White House senior adviser Jared Kushner and his deputy, Ari Berkowitz, was the “most significant to world peace during this past year,” and thus is worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize.
“The event itself brought about peace between countries that have been at each other’s throats for 100 years and at war, really, for 72 years,” Dershowitz said Monday during an appearance on Newsmax TV’s “American Agenda.”
“It was an amazing accomplishment that no diplomats previously could bring about. So, the event itself undoubtedly deserves the Nobel prize.”
The deals were announced in a four-month span between mid-August and mid-December and were, to many observers, the most significant diplomatic breakthroughs in the Middle East in 25 years. This, as the region girds for a prolonged confrontation with Iran.
Dershowitz was eligible to nominate the pair in his capacity as a professor emeritus of Harvard Law School.
In his letter to the Nobel committee, Dershowitz also cited the work of former U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman and former Israeli ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer in the normalization deals.
“It’s the unsung heroes, the people who traveled every day between the countries, the people who made the concessions and the compromises and got people to sign on the dotted line,” Dershowitz said. “All of them deserve credit. But it’s really Kushner and Berkowitz that made it happen.”
