Alan Dershowitz Nominates Jared Kushner for Nobel Peace Prize for the Abraham Accords
Haters going wild.
Professor emeritus of Harvard Law School nominated former White House senior advisor Jared Kushner and his deputy Avi Berkowitz for their roles in the Abraham Accords.
The Abraham Accords are four peace deals between Isreal and Arab nations.
From The Jerusalem Post:
In his nomination letter, Dershowitz wrote that he strongly believes that the singular event that warrants the Nobel Peace Prize for this past year is the Abraham Accords.
“These Accords, which have brought about normalization between Israel and several Sunni Arab nations, fulfill all the criteria for the prize. They hold the promise of an even broader peace in the Middle East between Israel, the Palestinians and other Arab nations. They are a giant step forward in bringing peace and stability to the region, and even to the world,” he continued.
Dershowitz added that he wanted to “emphasize the enormous contributions to peace made by Jared Kushner, Avrahm Berkowitz, David Friedman and Ron Dermer,” insisting that “these men played especially important roles.”
“Kushner and Berkowitz traveled all over the region, meeting with leaders and their associates, advocating for peace and nailing down all the details.”
The deals took place between August and December. Kushner and Berkowitz helped Israel negotiate peace deals with Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan, and the United Arab Emirates.
The nomination triggered the haters.
Alan Dershowitz nominating Jared Kushner for a Nobel Peace Prize is like Hannibal Lecter nominating Jeffrey Dahmer for a Michelin Star.

Alan Dershowitz nominated Jared for the Nobel Prize. For:
1) Making minor deals with countries that imprison feminists and LGBTQ people
2) Claiming he cured Covid
3) Not fussing during car trips
4) Eating his brussel sprouts
5) Not saying "ew" after Ivanka tried to hold hands pic.twitter.com/j8zz7Nw1AP

Woke up to see Dershowitz nominated Kushner for a Nobel Prize, so I will be emotionally unavailable today, y'all.

Kushner getting nominated for a Nobel peace prize by Alan Dershowitz is like a mom nominating her son for a Best Son award if the mom also routinely visited a rape island

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Why would he single Kushner out? Trump was already nominated, and Kushner was part of that admin. team.
Maybe he thought that the person doing the work on the Abraham accords was more worthy? I’m not a fan of the ‘give the boss a prize’ syndrome. Seems a fair nomination to me.
Pelosi should impeach Dershowitz for such a despicable act.
What a bunch of nasty, lying scum.
Odd. After burn loot murder(BLM) was recently nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, I couldn’t find any articles from ‘The Atlantic’ demanding the end of that prize, as it did for Trump’s nomination.
If Jared Kushner wants to be Nobel Peace Prize-worthy, he should have burned down major US cities, killed dozens of people, and looted/destroyed billions of dollars of property while advocating a genocidal racist philosophy in the media (see: BLM).
No one is Nobel Peace Price worthy if they have unbloodied hands, and Jared Kushner’s are way too clean.
First doubt it has a snowball’s chance in Hell of happening from this Leftist organisation.
Second within two years Slo Joe’s handlers will have the middle East in turmoil again.
Correct on both counts, although I wonder if the 2 year number might be a bit optimistic.
Don’t worry. If it doesn’t happen soon enough, Biden* will be 25th Amendmented out of office and Kamala can launch airstrikes at random targets in the general vicinity of Israel.
Yea, 2 years is wildly optimistic. I give it 6 months.
“When I grow up, I want to be just like the leftists”, said no one with a functioning brain, ever.
“Mommy, when I grow up I want to be a Democrat ”
“Now Johnny, you know you can’t do both”
I thought I heard some horrid screeching from the eastern coast earlier. This must be it.
Maybe be Dershowitz just wanted to kill a few lefties through exploded heads or summat?
And as usual, our country’s progressive Left rises to the occasion of recognizing solid work that advances world peace.
I can’t speak for other progressives but I certainly give him his credit. Did a good job.
Everything Alan Desrhowitz wrote about what should be the standards for the Nobel Peace Prize and about the Abraham Accords being the singular event qualifying for the prize is correct.
I think Professor Dershowitz actually intends his letter to be an endorsement of POTUS 45 Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Interesting that Rudnick’s first point is about feminists and LGBT+, two groups that are apples of a modernist’s eyes, as if that is the upmost important thing that one should take away from Arab nations. Hate to say it, but their imprisonment is small beans compared to what can be accomplished overall that what may lead to a freer society within the ME.
Isn’t the Left on the side of those nations that persecute gays? Do they not back Palestinian terror organizations, kissing cousins of ISIS that infamously throws gays off rooftops (although that’s slightly less barbaric than putting people in cages and burning them alive)? Cognitive dissonance much?
Oh, wait. I think I just answered my own questions. They hate these particular Arab countries for making peace with Israel, because they love countries that hate Israel, and concern for the LGBT communities in those countries takes a flying leap. Now it makes perfect sense!
You seem to think the left is one giant homogeneous group. It really isn’t. There is a wide diversity of opinion and no not all lefties are anti Israel.
You might turn that around and acknowledge that the right isn’t a monolithic bloc, either. But then that might subject you to ‘cancel culture’, and you can’t have that…
I absolutely agree the right isn’t a monolithic block. It’s got all sorts of opinions and sub divisions. I don’t think I’ve ever said that it is monolithic.
For me personally I’m supportive of Israel, what I don’t agree with is the idea that they can do no wrong. All sides make mistakes or are capable of evil. Pretending otherwise leads only to further mistakes and transgressions. If you can’t be critical of your friends how can you be critical of those with opposing views?
Absolutely nobody says Israel can do no wrong. I doubt that anybody in the history of the world since 1948 has ever said or thought that. Certainly Israel has never said it. The question is whether it has done something wrong.
Well, as a matter of fact it’s done quite a few wrong things, but none of them are the things the left likes to complain about. Forcibly expelling all the Jews from the Gaza Strip was a crime against humanity, but nobody on the left complains about it. On the contrary, they’re sorry Israel didn’t kill a few Jews while they were about it.
If you want us to criticize Israel, name something you think it’s done wrong. Not merely its capacity for wrongdoing, which nobody disputes.
To get specific,
1. Israel has never done anything wrong to the self-proclaimed “Balestinians”.
2. In Israel’s entire history it has never once murdered anybody. That is to say, it has never knowingly targeted an innocent person for death. (Undertaking a legitimate military strike knowing that it is likely to have collateral damage is not murder; so long as the collateral damage is proportional to the military advantage expected to be gained, and all reasonable steps are taken to try to minimize it, it is completely lawful. But Israel goes way way beyond that, often calling off vital strikes and putting its own people’s lives at unjustifiable risk, in order to avoid collateral damage.)
I was making a broad point and there are plenty who are dead to any criticism of Israel no matter how constructive and even from fellow Jews.
The specifics of what you say regarding removal Jewish settlers was carried out by Arial Sharon’s government. Given the Gaza strip is in effect under occupation by Israel (not getting into the rights and wrongs of that – hardly black and white situation) that is hardly suggestive of a crime against humanity.
My specific criticisms of Israeli actually relate to Sharon who was responsible for the Sabra and Shatilla massacres.
No, there are not. No such people exist, except in the imagination of antisemites.
Yes, exactly. I don’t understand your point here. Are you saying that was not Israel?! The IDF, under Sharon’s command, committed a terrible crime, and far from denying it I criticize Israel bitterly for it.
It isn’t now, but it was then. Continuing your sentence…
Huh? How is it not? If the USA had done such a thing would the entire country not have been up in arms about it? Would there not have been trials and prison sentences for it? And how does the fact that it was then occupied affect this? Does occupation turn crimes into non-crimes?!
What the actual f***? No, he was not. That was a libel for which Sharon successfully sued Time in Israel, and almost successfully in the USA.
The only defense Time had in the US court was that they had mistakenly trusted a source whom they refused to name (in my opinion the judge should have forced them to), and who they claimed had never lied to them in the past (the judge should have made them prove this). That’s not a defense anywhere in the world except the USA, so when he sued in Israel he won and Time had to pay out.
But you have no such excuse, so if he were still alive and you had enough money to be worth suing, he would sue you in US court and win despite NYT v Sullivan. Because it is now a judicially established fact that he was not responsible.
The facts are by now very well known. The massacre was carried out by forces loyal to the president of Lebanon, but commanded by a Syrian spy. The IDF had no idea what they were planning to do.
That’ a generalisation of a gross nature, of course its possible to be critical of Israel with out being
Anti Semitic. That’s just a stupid statement.
With regard to your second item. It wasn’t wrong to remove Jewish settlers from territory that wasn’t there’s in the first place.
If the USA had done it that would have been a foreign power removing people from another country into a third country so hardly a good analogy
With regard to Shantilla you are wrong both the UN and the Kahan commission both attributed blame to Israeli’s. Your specific point about the Times being sued is misleading too, that was based on attributing a specific set of words to Ariel Sharon, the judgement was critical of the article but didn’t actually side with Sharon at all; he lost that case.
Remember, the BDS and other pro-Paleo groups dismiss Israel’s protection of women and gays as “pink-washing”.
For these leftists, it’s not just that gays, women, and trans people are the most important, but that if you’re on the ‘losing’ side, nothing you do matters.
What’s funny in addition to your comments above, Israel is incredibly tolerant and protective of their LGBTQ community and they are reviled from the left for that. It’s written off as “pink washing” and not genuine, lol. But as you said, their neighbors that viciously persecute and kill gays? No real comments or criticism about that.
The haters are just jealous (aka “personally butt-hurt”) they didn’t broker any peace deals between Israel and any Arab nation. Ignore them.
Lerch says these types of peace deals are impossible with the kind of honest negotiations he has with the Arabs.
Mr. Kerry, and a lot of other leftists, also has maintained the last 30 years that no peace in the Middle East was possible without first settling the Palestinian issue. Mr. Trump proved them wrong. So of course they have to harsh him, and the Israelis, and these Arab countries, and anyone else who had a hand in it. Otherwise Mr. Kerry and the leftist have to admit that they were wrong, and we can’t have that, now can we?
Kushner has about as much of a chance as Trump at wining a Noble Prize….. just because of the Orange Man Bad hysteria. What a wacky world we live in when BLM and Stacey “The Doughnut” Abrams stand a better chance of winning the Noble antiPeace Prize.
It’s not a prize worth having, apart from the cash, and Kushner doesn’t need that.
Wars without borders, transnational terrorism, [catastrophic] [anthropogenic] immigration reform, social justice… Peace in the Middle East. Impossible, implausible, insane. Then came our first Orange-American President.
I see… great accomplishments are diminished and unimportant if the folks achieving them have flaws. What patent nonsense! Can I now demean Martin Luther King? He purportedly had some serious issues with women, one of the hottest current flaws a male can have in our over-judgmental and under-appreciative culture. How about dismissing Gandhi? For sure we have to attack George Washington – in fact, it’s being done now!
People are so damned stupid that I can’t see why we should apotheosise democracy. It requires intelligence to function properly, and homo sapiens lack that critical ingredient.
Gandhi was one of the most overrated people of the 20th century. By all means dismiss him.
Jared Kushner has no chance of being awarded the prize. He is up against the darling of the lefties/progressives: SOME black lives matter SOMETIMES. To do well at burning, looting, harming, maiming, rioting, terrorizing, damaging, destroying, etc. are the qualifications that mean the most in achieving “peace”
