One year ago today, President Donald J. Trump made history by bringing Israel, the UAE, and Bahrain together for the Abraham Accords. This agreement marked a significant step toward building lasting peace and strengthening the bond between the U.S. and our strongest ally. 

The Republican Jewish Coalition a Republican voice in the Jewish community and a voice for American Jews in the GOP shares a great message, they said: The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) celebrates the first anniversary of the historic Abraham Accords signed by Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain with the support and leadership of the United States.

Republican Jewish Coalition National Chairman Norm Coleman said:

The 1st anniversary of the signing of the Abraham Accords is a tremendous milestone for the region. The Abraham Accords really rewrote the paradigm for relations between Israel and Arab states. President Donald Trump and his admin. brought Israel and the UAE and Bahrain together to formally normalize their relations with each other directly. Now, these countries are working toward closer cooperation in strategic, economic, cultural, and technological areas that were closed before. When the potential of this change is fully developed, it will benefit the people of UAE, Israel, Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan, and other countries across the Middle East for generations. 

We are looking forward to seeing further progress toward peace in the region, building on the Abraham accords and bringing other Arab countries into peaceful, positive relations with Israel.

In the past 12 months, the formal agreement between Israel and these visionary Gulf States has already produced remarkable results. Here are just a few great examples:

  • The trade between Israel and the UAE has topped $570 million dollars, with projections exceeding $3 billion dollars within three years. The two countries have signed a tax treaty to spur business development between them. Israeli companies wanting to do business in the Gulf no longer have to go through a third country like Cyprus to carry out their trade.
  • Direct commercial flights between Israel and the UAE and Bahrain have been established. It is estimated that 200k people have already flown to the Gulf from Israel.
  • The UAE now has an embassy in Tel Aviv, led by Ambassador Mohamed Al Khaja, and Israel has an embassy in Abu Dhabi, led by Ambassador Amir Hayek. Bahrain has named Khaled Yousef al-Jalahmah as Bahrain’s ambassador to Israel. 
  • Israel now has better relations with other Arab and Muslim states because of the opportunities opened by the Abraham Accords. Normalized relations have been established with Sudan and Morocco.
  • Kosovo is the first European and first Muslim-majority state to establish an embassy in Jerusalem.
  • Bahrain’s Ambassador to the US said that the Abraham Accords helped end the recent Gaza-Israel conflict and helped mitigate damage caused by the fighting. 
  • Opportunities for high-tech development in the Gulf are opening up for Israeli businesses.
  • Religious, cultural, and civil society engagement is happening between Israelis and citizens of the UAE.
  • UAE Chief Rabbi Yehuda Sarna created a new prayer to mark the first anniversary of the historic normalization agreement. 

Avi Berkowitz, Former Assistant to President Donald Trump, Member of the White House team that negotiated the Abraham Accords said: Today is the one-year anniversary of the Abraham Accords. On August 13, 2020, we announced the normalization of relations between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. Thank you to everyone that has helped the Accords grow this past year. Peace is a beautiful thing. 

Arsen Ostrovsky, Human Rights Lawyer & Political Analyst remember this day by posting on his official Twitter account, he said: As we celebrate 1st anniversary of #AbrahamAccords, we should also acknowledge the courageous vision of the Trump US Admin and the incredible leaders who helped make this happen, like Jared Kushner (Ivanka Trump's Husband), Avi Berkowitz, David M Friedman, Aryeh Lightstone, Robert C. O'Brien, Robert Greenway. 


Apart from this UAE Embassy the US also remembered this day by sharing a photograph on social media they said: On August 13, 2020, the UAE and Israel announced the normalization of relations, marking a significant advance for the region. One year later, the two countries have collaborated in a variety of areas to ensure a more stable and peaceful the Middle East. The Embassy looks forward to continuing to highlight the accomplishments of the Abraham Accords through September when we mark the official signing of the agreement. Stay tuned.
