Breaking news a historic day at the White House Israel Bahrain in the UAE signed peace agreements and economic records talk about that more today on Jay Sekulow live live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and even Yahoo and representatives from the two-goal states will sign the Abraham at a ceremony at the White House today with Pres. Trump phone lines are open for your questions right now called 100-684-3110.
Remember Sec. Kerry saying that the nuclear deal was abandoned that Israel will become more isolated when infectious. The opposite is not happen. They've joined hands and now I have many more partners across the region. Each of those countries. Those Gulf states recognize that the shared threat from Islamic Republic of Iran is very, very real. And now they are working together by building out security and economic relationships in real ties between these countries. It will be us truly stabilizing for the Middle East and now your host Jordan secular, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, was announced talking with our special by to recruit now the Kosovo, which is also predominantly Muslim record rising Israel, but now that is being formalized as we speak. Right now the White House is prepared for the ceremony. The actual signing documents and holding my head would like the joint statement would read the United States and Bahrain. It says you present.J Trump, his Majesty, it's King Al Khalifa of the kingdom of Bahrain and privates Annette yahoo of Israel agreed to the establishment of full diplomatic relations between Israel and the kingdom of Bahrain and then and this is the one with the United Arab Emirates same same Language.
Pres. Trump Prime Minister Annette yahoo and Sheikh Mohammed bin Saeed Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy supreme commander of United Arab Emirates spoke today to greet the full normalization of diplomatic relationship between Israel, United Arab Emirates. What that means is peace, economic full diplomatic relationships is is what you have in your allies is what you have with countries that you get to have that full workup.
The did not recognize the existence of Israel before this and now they're going to have flights going back and forth full economic relationship bring greater peace, the region and its freaking out in a good way our enemies like Iran. So Iran's foreign minister course had to weigh in on this and he tweeted out Pres. Trump desperately needed a campaign photo op so his sudden loss of a Jerry Fisher blackmailed the regional clients of the giving of one only problem is that these peace agreements are not between foes, but long-standing allies. That is a conspiracy that Iran is always in these goal states are really pro-Israel right, which is not true. I mean these were funders of top funders of Hamas top funders of the quote resistance to Israel. They didn't recognize the state of Israel is greatly's athletes couldn't go there and participate in sport international sporting events and and I think they could do the business if they could. So whether or not they worked with the United States are not these countries that have course, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates you what it's like Abu Dhabi 10 years ago and said you can have a peace deal under Pres. Trump of the United States with Prime Minister that Yahoo Israel and that's in 10 years you're going to recognize Israel as it is. It's as state sovereign state with full diplomatic relations people would've laughed at you, if not more violently because Abu Dhabi is also United Arab Emirates. People think of Dubai, Bob Dobbs, much more conservative of the city and and that's the capital.
The fact is, it is that historic so Iran is freaking out and they say to stay tuned for more what they know is that as we know, representatives from the country of Oman, are also there.
Today a likely another CF makes sense for them to also why not get into this economically ship with the best economy in the Middle East. Israel so look to talk about what we come back from the break, but Andy and I have negotiated trilateral Middle East agreements and let me tell you something about this one. This was quite a diplomatic faith. This was credible moment reshaping the history of reshaping the future of the Middle East. Georges mentioned quickly that the economic impact of the idea that laser to fly from Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates to Tel Aviv is an incredible thing in anyone who is dealt with any kind of negotiations in the Middle East knows that is multisided.
I mean 12 faceted in order for something like this to have been achieved is a tremendous who the present United States art folks will take your calls and questions about this as well. One 800 684 31 to the 2000 684-3110 we come back from break challenges facing Americans as time went on our freedoms, our constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to stay with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines protecting your freedoms and rights in court in Congress. In the public arena and exceptional track record of success.
But here's the bottom line we could not do our work support. We remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you. Not well this is the perfect time to stand with us.
ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ only one.
A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice.
Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying when you stand with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life, we've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, when Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission life today online/Jay Sekulow live so right now there is simply at the White House.
It's pretty amazing to see to the imagery. The US flag not not CDC US flag with that the UAE or over Bahrain because of our long-standing relationship, but with the Israeli flag in the Star of David in the middle with the with the not just to peace Accords Bayside one with the United Arab Emirates, one with Bahrain but also trilateral agreement between the Israel Bahrain and the UAE on how they'll be working together these the most dynamic economies in the Middle East. We talked about United Arab Emirates course you know Dubai people know Dubai probably better than they know UAE because of the towers and and that the in the economic centerpiece that they are in that region. Israel is the is in the other economic powers so you put together you have the UAE and Bahrain usurping these Gulf states together. Oman is attending to put these golf these kingdoms together. These are also close allies of Saudi Arabia. This this is a this is the block that stops Iran from ever expanding yet.
So here's a couple interesting.
What is I like art production team to see if they can get what Georges described, which is the picture of the flags because that is a very symbolic moment to see the flag of Israel United States Bahrain in the UAE now.
Here's what happens in the White House is announcing that the agreement has been made to have complete diplomatic relationship which means embassies so course, the embassy, Israel's Embassy headquarters now. I states is curriculum. You have the joint economic impact in the store and said the economies of the these are the strongest economies flight cooperation not just cooperation there establishing flights between Tel Aviv and the UAE, Tel Aviv and Bahrain and that will increase tourism which increase also people getting to know each other which impacts how people get along. Saudi Arabia is allowing flyover rights, which is significant also.
But this is no small accomplishment.
This is a huge accomplishment.
I think it's the most significant accomplishment in the Middle East in our lifetime because it's multilateral trilateral… Jordan said it's really more than even trilateral. From a historical point of view. I think it's important as a historian I look and I see what they call this they called it the Abraham according why did they call it the Abraham Accords because Abraham is the common father of the whole region. The common father of the Arabs of the Israelis, the Jews, the common father is finally bringing them together under the banner and at the impetus of the President of the United States to what this does is not only does it bring them together diplomatically in terms of flights, investment, tourism, security, telecommunications technology, energy, healthcare culture, the environment embassies. Finally, the normalization of relations between countries that at rude and at stake are really historically J brothers right and him and although these are these the countries and when you look at the UAE when you look at Bahrain and and those who would probably follow as well as Oman. Yes, sometimes they address it and where you'll see the formal dress may be non-Western. In it there. The rest of their economy and their culture is very Western and as big summers been in that region will long before these peace agreements that they were moving towards the West. They were moving towards a more free and open discussion where things were less censored and people. I will write sent me that it's like the perfect examples of human rights. No in these countries. But how do you get theirs ago and he said his you start seeing each other. Working together, and of course we know into body. They have all these exceptions to the rule already, so it makes sense. These are this wants to take a step forward. I think the I believe because of where these are located. This is a bigger deal than even like with back in with Egypt is either more stable governments with more stable leadership Caesar kingdoms that have not these kind of but that they've not had the unrest that Egypt is seen for decades. Right and and they also have resources let's and also this this sends a message to the Palestinian Authority to get with the program and the Israelis are ready to make the Palestinian people to be to reach her full potential. It's been the leadership of the Palestinian Authority that is stopped that and now you got Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, and it looks like Oman next coming together saying we are not only going to allow these diplomatically shipped when it starts in early were recognizing Israel's right to exist. Look at this for those watching on Facebook or periscope or any other social media platform look at that quote. What have I got chills, looking at that. Who would've ever thought we would see that we were just in Jerusalem two years ago for the embassy move and then John Kerry said if you pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal. Israel will be isolated leisure isolation. The flags of United Arab Emirates. The Star of David and Israel's flag in the in the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain coming in the United States. Of course, so that Beckett take that shot that theory down John Kerry.
Now David Freeman underscores the best of them United States to Israel from Mars made a very important statement about this in the importance of the Bible calling at the Abraham Accords.
Take a listen number 30 Abraham as many of you know, the father of all grace. This is referred to as Abraham. Abraham wasn't Jewish. No person symbolizes unity among all these three great face. Abraham I is WG elicited that now we know that Oman is there. So there in attendance there watching this I mean I think that there next and so that's all I can think Oman coming into this Mike that's right you're talking about the shipping route you know where you've got Iran on one side.
What you're doing if you actually look at a map announcement doing centrality data. So if you look at United Arab Emirates you had Oman to that and you and of course Bahrain, which is an island in the Persian Gulf or the Arabian Gulf which is talking about that shipping zone, the Straits of Hormuz all those areas now are not as allies of the of kind of the United States. But there also allies of the Jewish state of Israel. And if you're Iran you know really have to second-guess taking any kind of action because you survive off those countries. Yes.you protecting your your brawl or raw oil and turning into gas turning into something to be sold. Citing this affects all that for me. If you're if you right now if you are side and you thought you survived that Civil War because of ISIS and the comp that the three way fighting that was there.
This is this is very unnerving for the policy authority. This is unnerving. There also talking that Sudan could be next. So were moving then in the north Africa Sudan river.
They overthrew their leadership very isolated from the worldly don't have the Osama bin Laden's anymore with the money to just to give the government leaders. They do have nowhere to put their oil they have nowhere to sell it there basically banned from the world economy. But if they did if they took a move like this, of course, that the economy would be opened up to them. The already overthrew their dictators. So this could be their next step and I think it actually could go all the way down outside the Muslim world into this world that Herodotus had a great influence in as well as Russia and China and now if you're the Russians or the Chinese you're losing grip. Yet, this is it.
I was in sight is a very important point. We just said that is the impact this has on these other countries but one_something with the egg because this is important, try lateral negotiations in the Middle East and this is coming from people that have done them a very difficult and the fact that in a in a relatively short period of time. You know you talk about Sigismund worked on for 18 months. Whatever. It's been to come to that. We had to do that with and trying to get recognized the Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem.
To do that, according to an Ottoman era decree. This is not works in the Middle East.
You had to get the sign off by the Israelis, the Jordanians in the Palestinian Authority's right we had to we worked there for it for several weeks and trying to get patriarch Theophilus was the incumbent Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem approved by these the three powers the Jordanians had approved. The Palestinians had approved it, and the Israelis were holding out an and approve and I remember very clearly J the morning of Shabbat that we met with Prime Minister Andrew element that is at his house at his residence, a mild elastic dented thing to meet on Shabbat on the Sabbath with the prime minister of Israel, and I remember distinctly. I am looking prime minister looking at Jake and saying to Jay what do you think I should do and J saying to him, recognize the patriarch of Jerusalem. The Greek Orthodox patriarch on behalf of Israel and six weeks later, which is more in the Middle East. Six weeks later. That's like nothing that's like three seconds. The Israelis recognize him and he remains today. The patriarch of the Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem, but it's so this is the historically. I believe Jordan that this accomplishment is significant as anything we've seen in our lifetime as it relates to the Middle East. Yeah just the beginning. Why ice skates different than Egypt is different than the Jordan. It's different. Those peace agreements with those of the original to was Egypt and Jordan and those are both in wars, so they were kind of like working in the conflict, but were starting to have pretty tough borders which they do and we can work together when we can but sometimes things will be great still like that today. This is not that these countries had not been a war in the UAE had not been at war with Israel is not land borders at the either had Bahrain. This is about saying economically why we isolating ourselves and by the way, sending a message that what the Palestinians have been trying to wear this to Hamas or Hezbollah. So what is the West Bank or that the Gaza Strip they disagree with it. They are totally safe, that they no longer agree with this thing either work with Israel or or else because brickwork were now diplomatic partners with the state of Israel. So things are fundamentally changed.
Take your phone because of this we come back at 100 684 31 two that's 100-6431 10 special advisor Rick Grenell to be joining us. The second half hour. The broadcasting is the former and mastered in Germany and of course Lori for acting director of national intelligence only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable. Is there any hope for that culture to survive.
And that's exactly what you are saying with the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We've created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold mission will show you how you are personally publication includes a look at all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later Planned Parenthood's role in the Obama care means to discover the many ways your membership is empowering the right question mission in life today online/challenges facing Americans time and are now free to store constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever with the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontlines protecting your freedoms defending your rights and courts in Congress and in the public arena and we have an exceptional track record of success.
But here's the bottom line we could not do our work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member. Thank you, are not well this is the perfect time to stand with us. ACLJ.org where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ Jay Sekulow this Jordan secular timeout Saudi Arabia to its of the other countries it may be following the UAE and Bahrain.
We talk about Oman. There there today so there represents are there to talk about Sudan is something about the turnaround that this was the headquarters for Osama bin Laden.
That's where he found his initial first safe haven to create Al Qaeda and now they may be on as many of the following. I work we hurt the present directly that this is not the end is just the beginning of countries were to be signing the these new diplomatic relations between their country and Israel and each other so and then you write Pompeii was asked directly about Saudi Arabia because none of this, I will tell you that even though Saudi Arabia is not them signing the court right now. None of these countries will be able to make these moves without site look at the map look at the money.
Look at the power look at the military's view controls the air could have the flights flight would matter if you made a peace accord. If you can fly you we had to go away around countries you would be flying over like a rack like Iran to me that's Saudi Arabia is okaying this in a sense of their letting this move on. We know we have the relationship. I say we, the United States has a relationship with Saudi Arabia economically and diplomatically, militarily, my Pompeii was asked will they be on board with this, take a listen bite six. I am confident that there are many other countries that will follow what we see, the timing is indeterminate will say I hope it's soon. This is what is interesting in your West with his recess skip*as well. I could put this every bite be in Wiltshire said the fact that a journalist can even ask the question that the secretary staring at how close to Saudi Arabia from signing a peace agreement with Israel and it it's not like a joke.
It's not like it's even serious or even having that discussion and that this is all coming about after US says were putting our embassy in Jerusalem and and the Iran nuclear to whole. The nuclear deal with Iran. We were told it and pulling out of your rack were pulling out of Afghanistan.
We got to Alabama right now is in Doha with secretary of state. Pompeo working on a peace deal so that we can get out of Afghanistan, right, and we are told that all this was withdrawing from the world and now are seeing the world.
It was supposed his enemies. It was was that this is a lifelong hate for each other literally generational hate hatred since the beginning of time are now coming together with peace because that that hate was a lot of it was propped up by our State Department, and people in our stair state of an asset that were anti-Israel. I was asked that the Ben Bennett director of governmental affairs I'm asking to skip as well blow me start with answer thing one of the issues Georgia Cinerama head and that is there are people within the State Farm. Let's be honest, that are not rejoicing that this is apt I say I mean it. This is been one of the hurdles that we face for a long time at the ACLJ is the bureaucracy inside our our foreign service in NJ.
The only way that you get to this point is you have a President he sent US foreign policy back on the course that needs to be just as quickly want people to zoom out and think back four years ago we were coming off the Iran deal were rewritten bolding in Iran. We had just abandon Israel. The United Nations Security Council this administration. Of course Jay came in and directed the State Department to reverse both of those we left the Iran deal. We sent in an proper place. Our policy the United Nations.
Counsel. We then quickly moved our embassy.
But J when you turn that strategy on its head from the top down, you're not gonna try to cozy up to your enemies and abandon your allies. You can get closer to your allies and you can isolate Iran and Palestine. This is what you get the rest of the region sees it just the way Jordan laid out their economic interest air peace interest now align with United States so we get the leadership from the top down.
You might have problems within the bureaucracy. J they don't have a choice. They follow the directions of the commander-in-chief, so skip pass you heads up our international law practice group and skip does a lot of work in the Middle East with us and courses had response was in military that regard but skip your thoughts on the significance of this will make you think what's happening before our eyes. Who would've thought that this would happen in our lifetime that we would have more and more of these Arab nations actually bucking decades of policy and now coming together.
The situation is changed historically because of the Iran and its ascendancy. There is fear in the Gulf and they realize that the real enemy is not Israel. The real enemy is that she Shiite state of Iran and they have to somehow stop that and they're not going to count out right now to the Palestinians, who absolutely refused to do anything the Israelis have made motions towards them to negotiate. They said no no no no and finally the rest of the Arabs of said enough and in fact this is really a gift to the Palestinians. It gives them the opportunity to read look at what's going on and to finally get serious about having a state will see if they take never taken advantage of these opportunities. Smith is with us as well. You served in Bahrain did there for year, give us a sense of what it's like yeah I as you said earlier, it is very Western, much like Kuwait and the UAE. They do not enforce a strict dress code.
They were dressed in traditional dress. She also have luxury hotels and nightclubs and restaurants in places like Bahrain and the UAE lived there for year. The thing that that I remember most about being there.
I was assigned to deal with morale, welfare and recreation for US troops and the Bahraini army had assigned Crown Prince Matt Khalifa to do the same things we work together on a daily basis. And I remember how over and over commit stress to me how valuable the United States was and that our strategic relationship with something that simply could not be replaced in the UAE has come around that as well and I remember him telling me that but here's the thing that's remarkable about what's happening in spite of the fact that people like my friend Auch Matt and others were so pro United States. The anti-Israel sentiment was still so there and that's part of what is changing in a restaurant and you and I think part of the reason you mentioned the State Department. It is been the policy of both Democrat and Republican administrations for decades to try and solve this problem by giving, you know, financial, and verbal support to the Palestinians and that policy simply has not worked. What the present is bring to the table is candor and honesty but also a refusal to look the other way when people are involved in terrorist activities have been I think you're 100% correct. I think we got a very unique analysis going on. All of these issues here and I just want_for a moment the historic nature of the store and this this is breathtaking that when you see those like let's put that picture back on the screen for television audience and you see the flags of the United Arab Emirates in Bahrain in the United States and the start date.
Of course, than the flag of the state of Israel and you save yourself is this happened after we pulled out of the Iranian nuclear arms deal where John Kerry Jordan said this will be the Israel will be isolated forever. And then when the United States moved its embassy to Jerusalem. That was good to be the end. Yes, yes, there was prophet of doom the end of the Israeli state, and this is something that I think we need to also emphasize the fact that we have seen leadership on the part of Pres. Trump, the President said we are God abandoning this ridiculous Iranian deal.
We are moving our camp there are embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and were going to do this thing and were going to press forward and normalize relations between these countries and I don't think any of this could have been done without the leadership of Donald Trump and we've got to admit that and I think it all to sit it will symbolize if this policy leadership today are saying Thomas and Fontana are now united, they will they will themselves be thrown off the that's probably what has to happen there. The old school leadership like what happened to Bashir to go away and now he could be facing.
Finally, the genocide took years, decades, finding the people rose up and said no more God done, and I think that will same thing will happen with the passing territories eventually is that the people are saying blow ourselves up over this anymore. No one else's. Being the one to left coming up on Jay Sekulow lot ACLJ is been on the frontline protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side. If you're already a member thinking. If you're not well this is the perfect time to stand with ACLJ.org where you can learn more about our life-changing work, member today ACLJ live from Washington DC Jay Sekulow and Jay Sekulow about that history be made right now inside the at the White House, the right of the Presidents meeting with the four minister master from the UAE so there there in the Oval Office.
There should be a signing ceremony with Bahrain United Arab Emirates in Israel is not ever thought that's what happened. This is so great is not peace in the US in these countries. These countries are working with us. We had that relationship just to get everybody up to speed this if these are peace agreements between these Muslim kingdoms and in the golf which I can line the streets of her most line the shipping routes that Iran tries to threaten all the time and trusted act as if they will take some action against its alignment like that anymore now and they are recognizing Israel. That's what's happening today. It's not the US in these countries making peace that was already the case, they are recognizing for the first time in their histories.
The Jewish state of Israel as a sovereign nation mean this is this is such a momentous moment and I wanted can I quickly go to skip on this because I know you don't okay because I was say skip is really worked with us on this issue for a long time, as is Andy and so many of us, but it is ended. Essential matter and the fact that you got Saudi Arabia allowing flyover rights and you've got the UAE and Bahrain and Oman coming next time I look at that and focusing on what you just said earlier West with with with Bahrain where you serve in the military. This is it's just unbelievable historic moment, it can't be overstated on me is really I've been so pleasantly shocked and surprised at all this is happening all in the last week with the UAE. This is the first official treaty than any nation in the region his side with Israel in 40 years and 40 years of placating terrorism, making promises, giving billions of dollars that simply did not work so the great question here is a Palestinian Authority of courses feeling abandoned.
They have not served the people well we work with Palestinians. We know that in any they have every time there's an opportunity. The leadership seems to miss it is the it is the failure of the leadership of the Palestinians that is preventing peace in the Middle East between Israel and around me, realize what they're doing is working around the Palestinian Authority but President tromping even though even still says he's hoping to reach out to the pallet and continues to do this I hope is as successful as he was with behind rain and the United Arab Emirates reach the people to your reach of the people, not maybe not that the old school leaders who were not to get over themselves, but their being quickly overthrown in these countries solid Bashir I could easily see with that the Palestinian leadership. So today they're calling for a day of rage that seems irrelevant to a breakthrough against Bahrain and Muslim kingdoms who used to support you find you and money yet likely does what is going to be looking at a totally different way and I think you set right by that saying why we working to the Palestinians Middle East peace process within the lease.
Peaceful of all they that have no authority and you will not agree to any of these terms. So I think I get this in the history here is not just in the what we talked about Kosovo in this probably Muslim country record are specialized to be joining us next next broadcast live. This history there. Bahrain, UAE, Oman is attending Sudan is been named as a potential country that questions are being asked of Saudi Arabia potentially doing this, but all of this could be reversed to quickly put a different administration in any because Joe Biden said you want to go back to Iran deal with this and Bahrain in the UAE for the US does that again is not the nightly rushing to make deals like this up because I can feel betrayed, it's exactly the point.
It would it would be a return to failed policies and exhibit fail policies multiple ministration by the Republican and Democrat, such as when the Democrat Republicans and Democrats that we got a policy where the governments are actually working together and working around the Palestinian Authority, which will ultimately benefit the Palestinian people, but this is an historic moment and it will be very interesting to see what the media does with it but you know what I don't care what the media does what it is we got our own media capabilities but I will tell you this for the world.
This is a stabilizing moment in world history. Mark this day down. A stabilizing moment in the Middle East without question, we write back joined our special advisor canal challenges facing Americans is a time when our now freedom sort constitutional rights are under attack more important than ever to the American Center for Law and Justice on the frontline protecting your freedoms defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public and exceptional track record of success.
But here's the bottom line we could not do more work without your support, we remain committed to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms that remains our top priority, especially now during these challenging times. The American Center for Law and Justice is on your side, you're already a member thinking well this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ.where you can learn more about her life changing, member today ACLJ only one. A society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive. And that's exactly what you are saying the American Center for Law and Justice, defendant the right to life. We created a free powerful publication offering a panoramic view of the ACLJ's battle for the unborn Gold edition like it will show you how you are personally publication includes all major ACLJ were fighting for the rights of pro-life activist ramifications 40 years later, when Obama care means many ways your membership is empowering the right question for mission life today online/leadership from the UAE in the Oval Office right now. Prime Minister Netanyahu was in the Oval Office, then Bahrain and then that their leaders will all go out in the White House and Yorty see the images to sign these historic first the accords together. So it's between each country in Israel. So the UAE and Israel Bahrain Israel as well as a trilateral agreement between those three, and that this is just the beginning.
We have our special advisor record now former acting director of national intelligence. He also former ambassador to Germany he's doing is live now and in he is been part of this a couple weeks ago because he serves us is advisor on Kosovo and Serbia when Kosovo Rick, a predominantly Muslim country also agreed to recognize Israel for the first time in its history. So this is this is just something is happening very quickly and again the meet whatever the media wanted to play on it is very historic and meaningful. Yes, first of all thank you guys for really highlighting all this work. I think there's so many points to make. The reality is that days like today do not happen without an outsider perspective.
The Washington DC establishment is try to do the same types of political discussions for for decades. Whether it's because of the survey are Arab-Israeli peace, or whatever the issue, we need an outsider perspective to shake up Washington DC and their stoic way of thinking. I can't think of a better outcome than what we are witnessing today and it's because Donald Trump and Jared Kushner, and Burkle all think differently and they look at the situation and they talk to people that really were skeptical for a long time about America's role and they see the reality is that this would not happen if we had continued in the JC file. We continued in Iran deal and sent a terrible message to the Middle East that we were going to somehow get half a week past that we all know will give Iran a nuclear weapon when Donald Trump said no. I don't care what the Europeans and care with the UN says.
Our goal is to deny Iran a nuclear weapon and were going to work hard to sanctions to make that happen when that decision was made. It sent a powerful message to the Iraqis in the rainy all of the city governments to say will here's an American government is doing something different. Standing with God and clearly standing for standing against the problem country in the region.
It would not have happened if we listen to the Europeans.
Europeans did not want us to get out of the JC file they want us to continue down these past square can send this right is the ultimate goal and that just means trouble with richly less if we can get that back. One of the things Rick said that things really important and something that we've reiterated hereto is that there's been 40 years of attempts that have just not worked.
If you look at the history of what's happened in the region as it is related to peace.
They tried all these planes and it's never working it's always been with the Palestinian Authority.
Rick kind of in the middle of it and this time whole new approach is you said completely outside the framework that it's been for 40 years.
I believe that's what's got it to this point, but that sounds really good by pounding consensus consensus means that the United States puts forward ideas and then it gets watered down by the UN Security Council or Brussels that the for the EU on consensus is something that I believe watered down a potent American policy. We would not have today, and this historic agreement, we would not have the cost of the Serbia economic normalization agreement. If we continue down the road of consensus. These are just the facts be Rick. This is issues I would season is big barriers to these kind of moves happening is a lot of our own bureaucracy to that that I know you had to deal with as a master. Germany is acting director of national intelligence. I can imagine our own State Department because dealing with them on and allow these matters that there that the bureaucrats long-term bureaucrats who don't like this because they kind of had an anti-really did have a very Anti-Israel bit. They thought that Israel was the problem in the region and that Israel was this barrier to peace in the region and so you had to have an administration that you said like they would come in with its own people and work around those bureaucrats dealt with honestly dealt with a lot of the consequences of what it means to drain the swamp. It means that you have the come after you with special councils and they come after you with impeachments. They come after you with you try to subpoena every body in an but you have to if you don't do it this way. Like you said you don't get to this point.
You put Joe Biden back.
He wants to put it back in the the Iranian nuclear deal. He said that publicly Rick look like every industry whether the. The journalism Madison even Christianity right we wait, we have bad apples with in each individual kind of groupings and the foreign service had that problem. We have bad apples that had been able to take over and hijack the process. But make no mistake, the majority of the foreign service really want to move issues forward. When given a challenge. They will push hard enough to get too much into the weeds, but moving the empathy to Jerusalem was truly historic because what it did for the State Department and the foreign service officers as it moved the issue of Israel to Jerusalem and we used to have a consulate in Jerusalem that only coordinated with the Palestinians are largely coordinated with the Palestinians and then in Tel Aviv we coordinated with Israel. Now we have an embassy in Jerusalem that's doing everything that is not just pro-Palestinian, but it's actually working towards peace and we have foreign service officers who working with Jared Kushner in the White House were given a vision and work hard and efficient.
We got also give credit to David Friedman R.
Lassiter amazing guy who also delete like Jared and the President to try something different.
We talk a lot of a lot about Donald Trump style is style works, and his style is an outsider thinking differently is what giving us this historic agreement meets David freedom ambassador to Israel from United States, a good friend of ours and he really has done a tremendous amount of slander the guidance and leadership of the present has done just an incredible job. Rick, I want to change gears for many not to take away from this because this is really just the last answer was six is to Rick is that people like David Freeman who went through horrendous confirmation hearing Savior to pro-Israel to pro-Jewish cause war in the regionsimilar Things about you Rick that they do. Here, the people bringing together this historic peace Accords. It's it's Rick Cornell getting costs of helping along Kosovo is in the meeting. There is a special at representative to recognize Israel is David Freeman putting together Bahrain and the UAE and many other countries will likely follow suit.
I know personally what it's like to have a messed up confirmation long and dirty and I again shout out to Jay Sekulow who was incredibly helpful to my confirmation process.
Such a friend sets a strong supporter. So I think I can't thank you guys enough to look at me and see what is been accomplished. So these were the right position to limit his workload in the segment at Rick we unite Lippert. Jordan did so demanding, was with us here too we live for three years in the special counsel probe to find out in the last few days that the lawyers we dealt with on a daily basis when the Inspector General of the Department of Justice asked for their phones because of all the stuff going back and forth.
All of them spontaneously combusted, so to speak, they wipe themselves out or they put in the wrong numbers the wrong passcodes they had. I call the passcode amnesia and these were the guys from Harvard and Yale Limburg Beta switch. They didn't but they did this. If anybody else to be called destruction of evidence. What's your take on that whole thing. This is outrageous.
You should be protected by working in the government. Look what we got a real problem in Washington DC where individuals really try to hide information and it works right usually works in Washington DC. He knows you spoonfeed the Americans. American people are stupid and that you're supposed to believe in Washington DC, is the exact reason why Nancy Pelosi goes to San Francisco gets her hair done without a mask and then is outrageous to the salon owner says wait a minute, what's going on and then that the rules that Nancy Pelosi plays by is that she asked for an apology for breaking the color right for for routing for breaking the rules. You're not supposed to do that you're supposed to stay silent when she's breaking the rules. Washington wasn't a great job facing me with this. Rick is always a great insight. We appreciate your work on all these issues.
Rick will have a new piece firstname.lastname@example.org this week as he does each week you will be joining us later in the week as well. Have Rick Nelligan you're getting folks who were in these meetings through doing this work for now, special visors, the American surfline Justice to help walk you with this process and to answer this new piece will be up. I think tomorrow or Thursday will be joining us get into the as well. Great. It's great to have him on.
It's great to have his insight on all those issues will be right back taking your phone calls only hundred 684-3110 on Jay Sekulow live this historic only when a society can agree that the most vulnerable invoice. Is there any hope for that culture to survive.

Well, this is the perfect time to stand with us ACLJ God where you can learn more about her life changing, member today.
See you special visors Rick Grenell former four cabinet member talking to on Jay Sekulow's part of the ACLJ team couple times a week is writing for the ACLJ website bringing this insight so that is not just a guess of the broadcasts when working with us at the American surfline Justice, who is also still at it and in roles putting together piece plants like the one where the majority Muslim country of Kosovo for the first time is recognizing Jewish state of Israel in the now we have Bahrain in the UAE. We got a lot of calls about this people been hold on to Frank in Florida online to Frank. Thanks for all non-you're on their historical question that David accords back during Pres. Carter's ministration we forgot about them. Importantly, they didn't bear the fruit that we would like to see it did normalize to some extent, relations between Jordan and each of the problem with Egypt is been, of course, that Egypt is at such a tumult in their government. Wes that it's it's it's right now it's okay.
It's been very hard to see that those things come to fruition. It really has been hard in your back when Yasser Arafat was head of the PLO sort of the still around but the predecessor to the PA.
They agreed to recognize. Finally, Israel is right to exist. But what a lot of people don't realize is two years ago. They totally reneged on that and they no longer recognize the right of Israel to exist ever happened.
You don't achieve peace by placating people who are committing to Karen and also they were at war since they were literally outward each other so you these were the costs and will not be Egypt licit units was was about to be wiped out Cairo could been taken over by the Israelis. They had things like forced into these agreements. If they didn't end well for either leader, so it ended badly domestically for Sadat and ended course for further Mr. black bag until I mean it did not indwell people did not accepted in the ended up both assassinated so that was it was almost like that little more like peace agreements postwar without the transition that we did in Germany. It was Utah without having assassinated literally sent you tried those are peace agreements I get. I don't I don't consider the same because the UAE was not in armed conflict with Israel. Up until yesterday you Bahrain was in armed conflict there. People were not killing each other in that sense.
So you're already 10 steps past. Yes, the kind of generational change. You cannot have of people getting over the fact that you're at war. These countries worked. They may been funding different sides of different battles, but there were also often times on the same side of diplomatic issues. They have a common enemy Iran. They also have a common friend the United States so they have two things it brings them together one divider was this Palestinian issues which talk about working out working around that and so the I don't see these do not the same as like a piece agree with Jordan, or peace agreement with with Egypt because of his interest in into warfare and I think that and I think your hundred percent correct and I think something I got one quick question. I know we gotta hit the get this close to and that is what is the Washington establishment reaction to this or do we know yet I think is good be along the lines would Jordan just talked about, really, because the cumulative nature IIa minutes quickly filling in the map and JI think that's when Jerry Kushner was talking about. I think that's can be the reaction Washington DC when he said look over the last 70 years and only had to agreements.
Now you had two more in a month. I think you probably have two more in the next month. Pretty soon Jay the Palestinians and the Iranians, they just run out of space on the map. So I suspect there will probably be a lot of quietness on the left side of the aisle, but I think everybody knows how significant girls go back the phones Robin Georgia I live Robin, welcome to Jay Sekulow live like everyone think the response I think you could kindly answer the questions really Robin that's a good question God's plan is a course are represented you and I will tell you this. This is not what the UN wanted to happen. This sounds crazy, but any it's not what this is not what the international elites wanted to happen. That's right, the international elites want them to be the ones to do these things they don't want one outlier, like the President of the United States to be the one who broke the peas rail so they will pooh-pooh it.
They'll say is nothing you say we still have problems with the Palestinians and the Israelis and they will make this deal minimize well it's not a minimal deal.
It's a very important deal to have normalization of relations between UAE and Bahrain. In the end is really something that is tremendous, but the fact that it was brokered by and pushed by the present United States will cause the United Nations to say that it is less the historic event and it really is bad quickly. I can imagine when the next censure.
When the next censure comes the Lord United Nations Gen. assembly J there is an entirely new list of countries in the region who won't play along. It's very significant if the United Nations actually think it's made which the present troubles talked about this as well through the UN, somewhat irrelevant, and that is what Rick Renaud was talking about. No more begin to say under if you keep present troubles present and you let him continue this, you keep letting them put people like Rick Trammell in place in Friedman in place and that others you may have never heard of before. Like these negotiators, like Burke, which we talked about were not the names you hear about the news every single day. It will go back to the same so it's not like you and is irrelevant forever, but if you keep present trump there. I mean, think about this. The two most despised leaders by the by the UN are probably number one that Yahoo number two trump tape and they're the ones putting together peace in the Middle East for the first time historically with countries in the Gulf states, not countries that were more than not brokering peace. Peace deals just to basically stop shooting each other. Stop killing each other. There say this a real diplomatic relationships and economic relationships. The President is talking now sticklers to follow Israel the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain will establish embassies, exchange ambassadors and begin the cooperator and work together so strongly to cooperate his partners across the broad range of sectors from tourism to trade in healthcare to security. They're going to work together, they are friends. They Abraham accords also open the door for Muslims around the world to visit the historic sites in Israel and to peacefully pray at Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem the third holiest site in Islam right there so you talk about the UN was to secularize everything and you are State Department euros. Rick said most people there, you heard right hip are good people just need like guidance because it may no sense.
Our position is really having this to Wisconsin Jerusalem Embassy and in Israel and in Tel Aviv and where we supposed to do was to do thesis confusing to our own foreign service folks but that they are the bad apples. Two of the bad apples, rose to the top we saw that different different parts of our bureaucracy also can't secularize everything. Religion plays a huge role here the different faiths you just heard from our present part of this deal is Israel like the United States has freedom of religion and would want to welcome those from the UAE and Bahrain to be able worship at their holiest sites like now they can. They can be religious, tourist, just like we are to Israel. Christians go as religious tourist. So now can Muslims from the UAE and Bahrain and bow my knees. It is about Bahrain because he just makes that question got an article going up tonight afternoon correct that on this about this whole issue. How significant it is and some of the history of the ran tried to disrupt pieces of discord in the rate just say search there's five more nations to follow, now which means that those are happening, so will talk about that tomorrow Jay Sekulow life ACLJ on the frontlines protecting your freedom is defending your rights in court in Congress and in the public arena.
