Goals of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace

Middle East

Congressman Robert Wexler has resigned from being a congressman to becoming the president of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace. Albeit, the exact reason was not clear why he did so, Washington and various groups were baffled with his decision.

The S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace was established by US Congressman Wayne Owens and S. Daniel Abraham, who was the chairman of Slim Fast Food. It’s an American non-profit organization.

When Wexler resigned from Congress, he disclosed that he and his family decided that he cannot pass up on the superb opportunity for him to head the Middle East Peace institute.

He also reiterated that there were no problems in his family and personal life, and that being president of the peace group, quote: “…may not be sexy as some other things, but this is what I’m doing,” unquote.

Some experts expressed their thoughts that Wexler fits the role to a tee because of his experience as a statesman.

Wexler has been a significant Jewish figure in US politics and was able to command respect from even the Jewish liberals.

Apparently, the goals of the S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace organization are primarily to bring peace in the Middle East.

Appeared on various TV shows namely: The Colbert Report, The Hill and The Daily Show, John Oliver.

On the Colbert Report, Wexler stated that he enjoys cocaine and the company of prostitutes because they are fun things to do. This made raves in America.

Colbert disclosed that it was a joke and the Congressman had a sense of humor. But some quarters may have misconstrued Wexler’s statement based on their negative reactions. Wexler took it well, though.

His team created websites namely: “WexlerForCongress.com” and he personally created WexlerWantsHearings.com. These were well received by readers with more than 200,000 people joining his campaign for impeachment on the WexlerWantsHearings.com website.

The websites, however, are now shut down because the campaign has already ended. But the response was tremendous, demonstrating the public’s support to his campaigns.

As a public figure, Robert Wexler can probably say that he has lived a full life for being able to campaign for the issues he felt passionate about.
