DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES – For the first time in history, the United Arab Emirates allowed a public celebration of Hanukkah, something unheard of in a Muslim country until recently. The reason they allowed the public display is said to be because of the historic peace deal brokered by President Trump’s administration between Israel and UAE.
Before the peace deal, the public display of a Jewish holiday would have been barred from happening in the country. And yet, not only did the very public display happen in the Muslim Country, it was held in front of the Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. The country allowed for a large menorah to be erected in front of the building. The 12 foot metal structure was constructed locally and will remain there for the eight nights of the Jewish holiday.
President Trump should be a shoe-in for the Nobel Peace Prize. This is unprecedented and absolutely huge.
