Jason Greenblatt, a former special envoy to Israel and the Arab world in the Trump administration, is joining the think tank Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs as senior director for Arab-Israel diplomacy.

Greenblatt was part of the team that brokered peace between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Morocco and Sudan.

JCPA president Dan Diker said Greenblatt possesses “a wealth of experience and close relations with Arab states across the region.”

On Twitter, Greenblatt wrote that JCPA, which he is excited to join, is a “do tank,” in addition to a think tank.

Earlier this month, JCPA hosted its first Arab-Israel-Africa security conference. At the time, Diker told JNS that “a lot of African and Middle Eastern states are identifying with Israel because we are not encroaching on them, unlike the other powers that have been approaching them like Russia or Iran or China.”
