With the signing of the Abraham Accords and the beginning of a new era in Arab-Israeli relations, many from across the Arab world began to visit and get to know Israel. In return Israelis visited the UAE, Morocco and the various other countries that agreed to normalize relations.
This did not happen in a vacuum. For years many Israeli and Jewish organizations have been actively promoting peace and normalization between the State of Israel and the Arab world.

Israel Today contacted Rose Rothenstein, head of StandWithUs, who in turn transferred us to the organization’s media spokesperson, who is Egyptian – Hussein Abu Bakr.
