US consulate Palestinians Jerusalem

Former US Ambassador David Friedman explains why opening a Palestinian consulate in Jerusalem goes against American – and Israeli – law and is “bad policy.”

Why are they so obsessed with the two-state solution, considering the fact that so many attempts to make a deal with the Palestinians, including generous offers made by some previous Israeli administrations, have proved futile?

“I think it’s just part of the State Department orthodoxy,” former US ambassador to Israel David Friedman told Arutz-7 in an interview, saying they’re not “out-of-the-box thinkers.”

“They’ll stay with it no matter what,” Friedman said, noting former Secretary of State John Kerry’s insistence, despite evidence to the contrary, that the only way to make peace with the Arab world is to first solve the Palestinian issue.
