David Friedman, US Ambassador
(Worthy News) - The US “remains committed to sharing its vision for peace with Israel, the Palestinians and other regional and international stakeholders at the appropriate time,” US Ambassador David Friedman said on Monday.
Friedman’s comments, in the form of a rare press release, came amid much speculation over when the US will roll-out the long-delayed plan, with some saying that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is pressuring the US to delay the plan, because its expected call for Israeli concessions is not something that will play well with right wing voters that he will be competing against, such as Bayit Yehudi and Yisrael Beytenu.
The plan is expected to call for compromises to be made by the Palestinians, as well. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
