While Israel partisans are attacking Representative Lieu for his remarks about US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, the fact is that Friedman is known as a fanatic advocate for Israel.
Israel’s Ha’aretz newspaper reports that Friedman, a former bankruptcy attorney, “heads a fundraising organization that has raised tens of millions of dollars for one of the most radical settlements in the West Bank.”
According to The Times of Israel and J Street the organization “funnelled thousands of dollars to the right-wing extremist group Komemiyut — which has the exact same name and similar ideology as a group that had been designated a terrorist organization by the United States and Canada.”
The Los Angeles Times reports: that Friedman “has been the prime mover behind a string of new U.S. tactics and positions, helping to engineer the most significant shift in American policy toward Israel and Palestinian Arabs since the establishment of Israel in 1948.
In any other American administration, Friedman would be reined in for going rogue.”
According to the LA Times: “One by one, Friedman has taken steps and crossed lines, going where no U.S. ambassador has gone and upending decades of policy, often in contravention of international law.”
