David Friedman Israel ambassador – CWEB.com
The US Senate has confirmed David Friedman as America’s next ambassador to Israel.
Mr Friedman, who was once Donald Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer, is critical of the US goal of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
He also supports Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, and has backed moving the US embassy to Jerusalem.
The UN does not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and the US embassy has been located in Tel Aviv for decades.
