With his nomination of attorney David Friedman as the new United States Ambassador to Israel, President-elect Donald Trump has sent a very clear message that he intends to shift U.S. policy away from its decades-long commitment to ending the Israeli occupation that began in 1967 and establishing an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel. That commitment represents not only a strong American political consensus, but an overwhelming international consensus as well.
Friedman is an awful choice. With Trump as president it seems likely there will be another intifada and probably another military invasion of Gaza and the West Bank.
"U.S. policy away from its decades-long commitment to ending the Israeli occupation that began in 1967"
Obviously this policy has been an abject failure for the last 7 times 7 years, given the USA's influence. So at least Donald Trump's mob are being honest.
"There is a time for every purpose under heaven.
Turn, turn, turn"
When's it our turn?
