Elan Carr, the United States Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, signed a historic agreement with Bahrain’s ‘King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence’. The agreement aims at fighting Antisemitism together “in the Middle East and beyond”. “We will also create programs to teach the region’s children the value of peaceful coexistence. Thank you, Bahrain!” Carr wrote.
The historic agreement, defined by Elan Carr as the “first ever in the Arab world,” was signed on Thursday in Washington between Carr and Dr. Shaikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al Khalifa, chairman of the board of trustees of the King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence in Bahrain.
Shortly before signing the Memorandum of Understanding, Carr noted that Bahrain has made itself the first Arab country in the Middle East to have agreed to join the US in combating “the ancient, recurring human sickness that is antisemitism; the first to include the delegitimization of the State of Israel in that project.”
The initial agreement marks the beginning of a joint effort meant to share and promote efficient “practices for combating all forms of anti-Semitism, including anti-Zionism and the delegitimization of the State of Israel.”
U.S. Deputy Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating Antisemitism Ellie Cohanim noted that Bahrain has set an example for the region and has been doing so for centuries in regard to its treatment of the Jewish population that has lived peacefully within its borders.
Secretary Pompeo stated: “Thank you to His Majesty King Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa of Bahrain and The King Hamad Global Centre for Peaceful Coexistence for signing an agreement on combatting anti-Semitism with the U.S. Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism”.
Latino Coalition for Israel’s vision is to engage and activate Hispanics in the Pro-Israel movement to counter the global rise of antisemitism and the Campaign to Delegitimize the Nation of Israel and to engage heads of state of Latin American countries to move their Embassies to Jerusalem. Our vision is to establish the largest Pro-Israel Hispanic entity; The Latino Coalition for Israel (LCI).
