I hope I am playing a small role in shaping a better future not only for Israel, but for the entire MENA region, by advancing cooperation, partnerships and mutual understanding among the countries and peoples of the Middle East.
If the Abraham Accords paradigm of cooperation, friendship and tolerance replaces the old paradigm of conflict, hostility and demonization, this will lead to a more peaceful, prosperous and resilient future for all.
My work at the Abraham Accords Peace Institute is focused on ensuring the historic Abraham Accords reach their full potential. If this full potential is reached, it could transform the region into a hub of sustainable development, revolutionize global trade, improve food, water and energy security for millions, enhance the health and wellbeing of people across MENA, and create a new model for interfaith tolerance and dialogue.
Despite the numerous synergies and good will, there are significant differences in the cultures, societies, and economic ecosystems of the countries of the Abraham Accords. Therefore, one major challenge has been navigating and overcoming these differences, in order to enable concrete cooperation and alleviate miscommunications. The influence of the long history of conflict and suspicion between Israel and its Arab neighbors is another challenge that will require effort and time to fully overcome.
I am motivated by the desire to strengthen and secure a thriving State of Israel, the Jewish and democratic homeland of the Jewish people, and to shape a bright and peaceful future for my four children, whom I hope will always call Israel their home. I look forward to continuing to enjoy and appreciate the modern day miracle of the rebirth of the Jewish state.
