RNC HEADQUARTERS, TRUMP TOWER — Yesterday, Donald Trump, soon to be our 45th president, announced that his choice for the USA’s ambassador to Israel is his bankruptcy lawyer, David Friedman.
Friedman represented Trump when he filed for bankruptcy for his failed Atlantic City casinos.
Mr. Friedman is an outspoken advocate for moving the US Embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, a hot-button issue in the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Most Congressional Republicans and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have long favored such a move.
In his continuing and sincere efforts to achieve a permanent peace between Palestine and Israel, President Obama has consistently advocated for a two-state solution, which Friedman vociferously opposes. Friedman favors expansion of Israeli settlements into the West Bank.
Moments ago, associate solitary reporter, Johanna Jones, interviewed Friedman. The burly bankruptcy lawyer began by saying “The best way to show our support for Israel is for us to invade both the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aqsa Mosque” – which Muslims consider to be the two most holy sites in Jerusalem.
"Once they are both destroyed, that will be the ideal site for the American Embassy in Jerusalem.”
Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., who overheard Friedman’s statement, immediately chimed in. “I totally support Ambassador-designate Friedman’s proposal, with one significant modification: the Al-Aqsa Mosque, which takes up less space than the Dome of the Rock, should be replaced by Liberty University East, so that we evangelicals, who played a major role in electing Mr. Trump president, will have a firm foothold in Jerusalem."
Netanyahu expressed enthusiasm for Friedman’s plan, as did Donald Trump’s Chief Strategist, Stephen Bannon, and Alt-right leader and white nationalist Richard Spencer.
