Blessed Israel has been honored with several Shining World Awards, including the Shining World Leadership Awards for Humanitarianism and Caring, the Shining World Caring Leadership Award and the Shining World Leadership Award for Peace. Israel has also been striving for advancements in peaceful relations. Thanks to the mediation of former US President, His Excellency Donald Trump, Israel established full diplomatic relations in 2020 with the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Sudan, and Morocco.
