David Friedman, the New York lawyer that President-elect Trump has chosen as Ambassador to Israel, is not a supporter of the “two-states theory” brought forward by American diplomacy for several years about the situation of Israel-Palestine,rather he is a fervent supporter of Israeli interests. Son of an orthodox rabbi, Friedman has always sided in favor of the colonization of the territories to the east of Jerusalem, awarded in ’67 by the U.N. to the Palestinians, we are faced with a man who has extreme positions that are very similar to those of Trump, we will see what the guidelines of the new administration on the issue of Israel will be.
David Friedman, a lawyer with no diplomatic experience, was selected by President-elect Trump as new Ambassador in Israel. Friedman is a staunch supporter of the Israeli occupation of the western part of the city of Jerusalem, which illegaly is controlled by the Israelis since ’67. The most worrying thing is the determination of Trump to move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Even Obama and Bush had the same tought, but during their Presidency they both changed their minds, because of the risk of breaking the precariously diplomatic relations between Israel and Palestine of wich US are the guarantors.
