BEFORE THE passing of UN Security Council Resolution 2334 on the “illegality” of settlements, which the Obama administration led from behind, it was possible to debate Donald Trump’s nomination of David Friedman as the next American Ambassador to Israel. In the wake of the UNSC vote the time for debate is over. It is now time for a full court press to secure the Friedman nomination to expunge the stain left by Obama, Kerry and Ben Rhodes.The nomination will serve as a statement that the new administration and congress recoil from the outgoing administration’s attempt to foist indefensible borders on Israel and endow the Palestinians with a nofault and even non-deductible insurance policy for their intransigence.But then this was the real reason for the opposition to Friedman all along. Friedman symbolizes a new style of thinking that clashes with the bankrupt two-state solution based on the 1949 Armistice lines. The stated objections to Friedman were fluff to begin with.
