Former White House adviser Jared Kushner and his deputy Avi Berkowitz have been nominated for the Nobel peace prize for their role in negotiating peace agreements between Israel and four Arab nations. The nomination was submitted by Trump defending attorney Alan Dershowitz, The Guardian reports.
Dershowitz nominated the pair of former White House officials for playing key roles in negotiating the “Abraham Accords” between Israel and Bahrain, Morocco, Sudan and United Arab Emirates, according to the report.
Of course, the nominations don’t imply an endorsement from the Nobel committee. Thousands of individuals are eligible to make nominations for the prize, which will be awarded in October, and Dershowitz is eligible to make that nomination in his capacity as a professor emeritus of Harvard Law School.
in response, Kushner said he was honored to be nominated.
