The confirmation hearings for David Friedman to be the next U.S. ambassador to Israel is scheduled for next Thursday, the day after Netanyahu and Trump meet in D.C. Friedman is not only a supporter of Israel’s illegal settlements, he is also a leader in the settlement movement. He has raised millions of dollars for settlements and his appointment would give a green light for an increase in settler violence. Friedman wants to destroy the Iran nuclear deal, move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, and denies that Palestinian refugees exist. He is so right-wing and toxic that he makes Netanyahu look like a liberal centrist!
Here is the good news: we have a fighting chance of defeating him! This is why we need your to tell your Senator that you oppose David Friedman as the next U.S. ambassador to Israel.
If you haven’t done so yet, sign our petition opposing Friedman. Read from Ariel and Issa why Friedman is not fit to be the US ambassador to Israel. Friedman is a right-wing extremist who has no business being the next US ambassador to Israel.
Towards equality and freedom for all!
