Petition Opposing Trump Choice for Ambassador to Israel

this-is-your-ambassador2

Please consider signing this New Israel Fund petition, which you can find here, against David Friedman as Trump’s very bad choice for Ambassador to Israel. When you fill out the information, a copy goes to your Senator who will be casting an up or down vote.

The text of the petition reads:

As your constituent, I strongly urge you to reject Donald Trump’s choice to be the next US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman.

Mr. Friedman poses a threat to longstanding US policies in the Middle East that have been supported by Democratic and Republican presidents alike.

He is hostile to the two-state solution – the only way to ensure Israel’s future as the democratic homeland of the Jewish people. He is a friend of the settlement movement and an avid supporter of further settlement expansion. He’s shown disdain for Israel’s Arab population, questioning their value to Israeli society. He has even made the case for Israel’s annexation of the West Bank.

Furthermore, the contempt Mr. Friedman has shown toward liberal American Jews – labeling them worse than Nazi collaborators – makes him a horrible choice to be our representative in Israel.

I urge you to reject Mr. Friedman’s nomination to be the next US ambassador to Israel.
