The middle east conflict hinges entirely on the relationship between Israel and her surrounding Muslim neighbors, which is why an American ambassador to Israel needs to be as strongly pro-Israel as is possible.
A two-state solution for the Israelis and the Palestinians will never work since Israel cannot protect the borders that she would end up with in such a scenario and ultimately would be driven out by the overwhelming numbers of her Arab Muslim enemies.
This is why Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel will, of necessity, be someone with sympathies for the Jewish state.
As Right Wing News stated:
Donald Trump has made yet another common sense appointment and this time it’s the U.S. Ambassador to Israel.
Instead of allowing someone an ambassadorship based on how much money they’ve given him in the past, Trump is putting in people who actually have a dog in that region’s fight.
Our President-elect has just named David Friedman to be our next Ambassador to Israel. Friedman is an Orthodox Jew and Attorney, and has very conservative views on the nation, so this is a fantastic pick, in my opinion.
Friedman was an advisor to Trump during the campaign and was his lawyer for corporate bankruptcy proceedings in the past. He supports Israeli settlement construction, has pooh-poohed the idea of an independent state of Palestine, and is a key player in Trump’s relatively hardline pro-Israel positions, among them, moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, Politico reports.
Trump gave a statement on his pick that dripped patriotism and love for the tiny nation.
“The bond between Israel and the United States runs deep, and I will ensure there is no daylight between us when I’m President,” Trump said in a statement Thursday evening. “As the United States’ ambassador to Israel, David Friedman will maintain the special relationship between our two countries. He has been a longtime friend and trusted adviser to me.”
This is a good sign the anti-Israel stance of the Obama administration is as short lived as the remaining days of the Obama presidency!
We will benefit greatly from a more friendly relationship between America and Israel. The doomsday clock may have moved backwards a tick or two!
