David Friedman is known for his support for the most extreme elements in Israel’s settler movement

The choice of US ambassador to Israel has never before incurred such scrutiny or provoked such controversy.

Usually, the appointment is approved by the Senate’s foreign relations committee by consensus. But David Friedman’s confirmation vote last Thursday split largely on partisan lines, with Republicans backing him and all but one Democrat opposing him.

Tens of thousands of liberal American Jews signed a petition opposing his nomination, and major Jewish organisations and hundreds of rabbis also objected.

But then, Donald Trump’s envoy to Israel is no ordinary ambassador.

Rather than climbing up through the diplomatic ranks learning the arts of statecraft, 57-year-old Friedman has been propelled overnight into one of the world’s most sensitive diplomatic posts.

No honest broker

An Orthodox Jew and the son of a New York rabbi, Friedman is a bankruptcy lawyer who has worked on Trump’s behalf for the past 15 years. He joined the presidential election campaign last year as Trump’s adviser on Israel.

But it is not Friedman’s lack of experience causing the greatest concern. It is his long history of support not only for the Israeli right but for some of the most extreme elements in Israel’s settler movement.

    Hrumf, you dont get it do you.
    The people that will suffer most from this “hardliner” aka SOB is the Jews them self.
    WE all know the crimes, committed, everybody knows it, but somehow, it never penetrates the wankees, chief head bangers, and the polarization of even the Israeli society will just continue.

    The fall in economics, generally will and is kicking into them as well as to everybody else.
    And the terror state Israel is still killing people they dont like, bombing Syria, to help ISIS in Golan witch is occupied by the terror state Israel, yup, just ask the Corp that got the fields for exploiting, huh, wankees.
    No suprices there, and the same to Gaza/Palestinian economic zone witch contains oil and gas.
    How convenient.
    Isnt it.

    And on top of it, they want war with Lebanon and Iran, and your gov. is like obidiant slaves, and have no shame, when we know they lie about everything all the time.
    And to the Persident, be very careful, and talk to other Jews than just this freaks.
    The same people that is trying to kick you down, the same MSM whom lies about everything all the time is whom covers the agenda, for the terror state Israel.

    I think you dont even understand how grave it is, the next war will probably be the last one done by the Jews, despite their grip in the MSM, this one they will loose.
    And to the Jews, this time, its yours, no excuses, if you dont start to reconcile and end the occupation you will suffer, this time You will be the Palestinians, they are at the bottom already, this time you will come there to.
    Flush the asylum Tel-aviv or go down the drain with it.

    peace
