If you follow, you know I’m a fan of the Abraham Accords and all it represents in relations between Israel and her moderate Arab neighbors, and its prophetic significance. Several architects and ground-layers of the Abraham Accords have written books sharing intriguing insights into the making of that historic agreement. Now, Jason Greenblatt, President Trump’s Middle East peace envoy, adds his book to the mix!
“In the Path of Abraham: How Donald Trump Made Peace in the Middle East–and How to Stop Joe Biden from Unmaking It” promises to be another eye-opening look at what took place behind closed doors, and how the pieces all came together. In the Path of Abraham follows incredibly insightful books by Joel Rosenberg (Enemies and Allies) and US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman (Sledgehammer). I have read them all and highly recommend them for anyone interested in behind-the-scenes details that made the historic accomplishment possible.
Joel Rosenberg recently posted an article containing interactions with Greenblatt, and a minor review of the book. Check out Doing the Impossible.
PS: Joel Rosenberg was not part of the official peace-making team. However, he was one of the first to score private meetings with heads of state in places such as Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain and others. In fact, he led Christian delegations to many places in the Middle East, also laying the groundwork for peace with the Israelis. Thus, his book is recognized as a key behind-the-scenes account of what led up to the Accords. Both Friedman and Greenblatt were part of the Trump peace team, and were in the room during negotiations with Israeli and other Middle East leaders.
