For the past eight years, Israel has dealt with one of the most hostile Presidential Administrations in years.
The Trump Transition Team has tapped David Friedman, an Orthodox Jew, to be the next American Ambassador to the state of Israel.
That’s now changing dramatically.
- No nonsense about a two-state solution, in which Palestinians must renounce all violence and recognize the right of the Jewish State of Israel to exist
Already, the liberal and establishment groups have called Friedman massively unqualified.
That’s a good thing, since lobbyist groups have become part of the swamp which Trump has pledged to drain.
Friedman’s views on a two-state solution are stronger than any previous ambassador in over 20 years.
Friedman is an outsider, one who will not only disrupt the current decline of American-Israeli relations, but will also upend the liberal Department of State ruling class.
For the first time in nearly 50 years, the American ambassador is presenting a realistic view on the conflict, and will not accommodate the appeasement efforts of previous administrations.
Critics of the Friedman appointee fear that his appointment, followed by the relocation of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, will spark a Third Intifada against Israel.
But peace through strength is the new spirit in the upcoming Trump Administration, and a new approach which demands respect for the Jewish state and respect for all people in the Middle East.
