Jared Kushner, the form first son-in-law, the man who’s possibly greatest achievement in this world was marrying a woman who could have been a super model, can now say forever more that he was once nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Long Island Republican Congressman Lee Zeldin nominated Kushner for his work on the Abraham Accords.

Zeldin also nominated Jared Kushner’s assistant Avi Berkowitz for the award too. “The Abraham Accords, signed in 2020, represent the most significant diplomatic breakthrough between Israel and Arab nations in decades,” Zeldin wrote in his nomination, as quoted in the New York Post. “Against the background of a centuries-old conflict and the COVID-19 pandemic, rising tensions, and Iran’s growing influence, Kushner and Berkowitz successfully brought together regional leaders, and forged regional alliances better capable of countering Iran’s malign influence.”

Some people, however, will point to the fact that such a nomination is really no big deal. After all, any member of the U.S. Congress, or any such national governing body, or head f state, and many more people can make such a nomination. So, the President of Iran can even nominate someone. And Jared Kushner is just one of 329 such nominees this year. And he was nominated last year too.

In response to the news, Jared Kushner told the New York Post, “Thanks to the visionary leaders and efforts of millions of Israelis and Arabs, the Abraham Accords continue to strengthen, making the Middle East – and the world – a safer, more prosperous place.” But what exactly did he do to make the Accords happen? He was a senior aide to President Trump and responsible for Middle East policy, but no one seems to know what he actually did in that position. And ever since the Abraham Accords were first signed, it has been revealed that Kushner took advantage of his position, and the peace negotiations themselves, to promote his personal business interests.

Basically, don’t be surprised if Jared Kushner does not win the award.
