Part one of the four-part documentary series “The Abraham Accords,” produced by former US ambassador to Israel David Freidman, premiered Friday on TBN, the world’s largest Christian television network. The series is based in Israel and hosted by Friedman as he interviews world leaders regarding the developments behind the Accords, signed in 2020.
Those interviewed included a wide range of political leaders. Former US president Donald Trump, former vice president Mike Pence, former secretary of state Mike Pompeo, former presidential adviser Jared Kushner, former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and many other leaders and experts are featured throughout the programs.
TBN’s own Abraham Accords team promotes the series. Its leaders include TBN’s Matt Crouch, former governor Mike Huckabee, Erick Stakelbeck, Laurie Crouch.
The panel of largely Trump administration leaders focused on the significance of the events surrounding the normalization agreement originally signed by leaders from Israel, Bahrain, and the UAE on September 15, 2020, on the south lawn of the White House.
The three nations agreed on “maintaining and strengthening peace in the Middle East and around the world based on mutual understanding and coexistence, as well as respect for human dignity and freedom, including religious freedom.”
The three leaders included Netanyahu, along with Bahrain’s Foreign Minister Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani and UAE Foreign Minister Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Freidman personally also played a significant role in the accords.
Since his departure from his role as ambassador, Friedman has started The Friedman Institute for Peace Through Strength, based in Jerusalem. His documentary series serves as an important part of the institute’s effort to further Israel’s impact through peaceful initiatives.
“The Friedman Center will open its doors to heads of state, lawmakers, government leaders, business leaders and young people from around the world and in particular with an emphasis on the Arab world,” Friedman said at the opening.
