New US ambassador to Israel funds illegal settlements & owns a house in Jerusalem NO legitimacy as a broker of peace

Never before has the the United States choice for US ambassador to Israel provoked such controversy.

On March 23 2017 the United States Senate swore in David Friedman, 57, with a 52-46 vote, a man who opposes a Palestinian state, actively fundraises for illegal Israeli settlements and owns a house in Jerusalem.

"This appointment should explode any remaining doubts among Palestinians and the international community that the US can be any kind of honest broker," Nur Arafeh, an analyst with a Palestinian think-tank, told Al Jazeera. She stated, "It confirms that the Americans have no positive role to play in the struggle for self-determination or rights for the Palestinian people."

Major Jewish organisations, hundreds of Rabbis and tens of thousands of American Jews signed a petition urging the Senate to vote against his confirmation.

Friedman is the president of American Friends of Beit El Institutions, a non profit fund which raises millions of dollars for an illegal, Jewish-only settlement in the Palestinian West Bank. The money has paid for several schools and news organisations in Beit El, a town with approximately 7,000 residents north of Ramallah.

The Friedman Faculty House at the Raaya Girls High School is located in Beit El. It bears a plaque stating:






A small part of this neighborhood was demolished by High Court of Justice order five years ago because the land had been seized illegally.

According to Haaretz, Friedman is also a fundraiser for and donor to the American branch of Ateret Cohanim; a far-right wing Israeli group that settles Israelis in key locations in East Jerusalem and al-Aqsa. The organisation has raised over $25 million over the past 20 years.

An Orthodox Jew and son of a New York Rabbi, Friedman has worked on President Trump’s legal team for the past 15 years. The 57-year-old joined President Trump on his 2016 election trail as an adviser on Israel.

The now ambassador to Israel owns a home in Talbiyeh, a neighbourhood in Jerusalem which was the site of mass Palestinian displacement during Israel’s creation in 1948. Friedman has fervently advocated moving the US embassy to Jerusalem, as promised throughout President Trump’s 2016 campaign.

Isaiah 13King James Version (KJV)

13 The burden of Babylon, which Isaiah the son of Amoz did see.

Lift ye up a banner upon the high mountain, exalt the voice unto them, shake the hand, that they may go into the gates of the nobles.

I have commanded my sanctified ones, I have also called my mighty ones for mine anger, even them that rejoice in my highness.

The noise of a multitude in the mountains, like as of a great people; a tumultuous noise of the kingdoms of nations gathered together: the Lord of hosts mustereth the host of the battle.

They come from a far country, from the end of heaven, even the Lord, and the weapons of his indignation, to destroy the whole land.

Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:

And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light: the sun shall be darkened in his going forth, and the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

11 And I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity; and I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

13 Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of his fierce anger.

14 And it shall be as the chased roe, and as a sheep that no man taketh up: they shall every man turn to his own people, and flee every one into his own land.

15 Every one that is found shall be thrust through; and every one that is joined unto them shall fall by the sword.

16 Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished.
