David Friedman: Trump’s Splendid New Ambassador to Israel

David Friedman was just chosen by President-elect Donald Trump to be America’s ambassador to Israel. Mazal Tov.

Karen has an eagle eye.

She took one look at a picture of David Friedman and said: “Isn’t he Mark’s brother?”

Mark is married to Rosie, one of Karen’s oldest friends.

A quick Google search made us smile.

So here we have another practicing Jew (who keeps kosher and observes the Sabbath) in President-elect Donald Trump’s inner circle. No wonder the Jew-hating Jews of J Street, the National Jewish Democratic Council, and Americans for Peace Now are throwing temper tantrums. Progressive (read: assimilationist) Jews hold Torah-observant Jews in special contempt.

David Friedman was correct when he characterized leftist Jews as “worse than kapos.” Kapos collaborated in the murder of Jews because the Nazis forced them. Progressive Jews do their Jew-hating work voluntarily.

David Friedman, 57, like yours truly, is the product of an Orthodox yeshiva education. His father, like mine and Karen’s, was a rabbi, thus Friedman comes from extremely modest means. He speaks Hebrew and is steeped in the love of Zion.

David Friedman knows that the so-called settlements have nothing to do with the IslamoNazi war on the Jewish people. He knows that IslamoNazis consider the entire State of Israel occupied territory. He knows that if you tell Jews that they have no right to live in Area X in Israel, the next logical step will be to tell them that they may not live in Area Y, which is in Paris, London, Brussels, Amsterdam or Brooklyn. We already see this happening in the no-go zones in Europe, where non-Muslims are not welcome. Friedman enthusiastically supports moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem—the eternal undivided capital of the Jewish state.

Friedman understands that “anti-Israel” is code for Jew-hatred.

Trump and Friedman have a long and close friendship. Donald Trump donated $10,000 in Friedman’s honor to Beit El, a religiously observant community in Israel, in 2003.

David Friedman is exactly what Israel needs after eight years of Obama’s anti-Israel policies. He will (we hope) disrupt the so-called peace process, which, in effect, rewards IslamoNazis for their terrorism and cold-blooded murder of Jews, including American citizens.

The left is melting down before our eyes. I, for one, welcome its temper tantrums: Such childish and undemocratic behavior reminds every Trump voter exactly why he or she voted for Trump. If the left keeps going in its current direction, it will become the party of New York, New Jersey, California and Illinois — cantons of high taxes, high crime, and self-righteous whiners.

Comment Rules

Seraphic Secret is private property, that's right, it's an extension of our home, and as such, Karen and I have instituted two Seraphic Rules and we ask commentors to act respectfully.

  1. No profanity.
  2. No Israel bashing. We debate, we discuss, we are respectful. You know what Israel bashing is. The world is full of it. Seraphic Secret is one of the few places in the world that will not tolerate this form of anti-Semitism.

That's it. Break either of these rules and you will be banned.

    Trump President, Friedman Ambassador, why the wailing and gnashing of teeth has been and will be fantastic. We are only a hair’s breath away from sack cloth and ashes on the left, REAL sackcloth and ashes! And who said the left forgets the past. The resumption of old time virtues and values by the left will be head spinning sort of like Zsa Zsa (G-d Rest her) getting a new husvband!

    Yes, but Trump is an antisemite. I know because I keep reading it, and people keep telling me that he is – with a straight face. Facts don’t change the emotional truth, professed emotionally.

    Honestly, I’ve hit a critical mass point in my despair about human gullibility and herd mindsets. I think we may have gone too far to come back.

    I am moving out of the Hillary archipelago in a month.

    The new home will be in a red state.

    Our daughter will remain in CA and has been interviewed by Apple for a job so she may go deeper into the belly of the beast.

      I may be looking for a new place as well, so if it is not too much trouble, please keep us in the loop. Good Luck.

          Cold, too. Arizona is warm although it can get cold at night in winter. Summer is not much warmer than LA.

      Thanks for that “archipelago” link. Another article linked from there shows an equally interesting image: counties won by more than 20%.
      Both show that the Democrat party isn’t even the party of NY, CA, NJ and IL — it’s the party of only the urban slice of those. (Also the eastern urban slice of MA.) If CA secedes as threatened, chances are it will be only the coastal strip between SF and San Diego, while the inland counties will petition the USA for admission as “East California”. 🙂

        That is so true. People think of California as one political monolith – it isn’t.

        And sometimes I think the voting is schitzo. We vote to speed up the process of executions – and vote to legalize marijuana.

          As a libertarian, I see no contradiction there. (Neil Smith pointed out that the correct kind of capital punishment is administered by the intended victim, and the time and place of the attempted crime.)

    Off topic, but perhaps not, is a pattern emerging in Ankara, Zurich and Berlin? no one has yet said so on network television, but that is their problem.

        A pattern of destructive ‘bomb throwing’ as it was called a century back.

    “If the left keeps it up they will become the party of New York, New Jersey, California and Illinois, cantons of high taxes, high crime, and self-righteous whiners.”

    Alas, Robert, even with these changes, you and I are still living in “enemy territory”.
