Friedman: Unfit to Be Ambassador to Israel

On March 23, 2017, the Senate confirmed the nomination of David Friedman to be US ambassador to Israel in a closely-contested vote, 52-46. Find out how your Senators voted here.

Friedman, president of an organization which funds Israel’s illegal settlements, holds extremist views on Israel and the Palestinians.

He opposes Palestinian rights, support Israel’s settlement drive and annexation of the West Bank, and demonizes all who oppose this agenda.
