Reject David Friedman as US Ambassador to Israel

This petition had 1,139 supporters

I strongly urge you to reject David Friedman, Donald Trump's choice to be the next US Ambassador to Israel. Friedman poses a threat to longstanding US policies in the Middle East that have been supported by Democratic and Republican presidents alike.

Moreover, anyone with a progressive vision of Israel and Zionism views David Friedman's form of Zionism as undermining Israel's future and as contrary to Israel fulfilling its goals of Jewish self-determination and the creation of a society based on Jewish visions of justice, equality and peace.

David Friedman 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.
