US Amb. Not Taking ‘Israeli’ Occupation of Palestine for Fact
Local Editor

US Ambassador to the ‘Israeli'-occupied Palestinian lands David Friedman used the word "alleged" to refer to the ‘Israeli' occupation of Palestine.

Friedman referred to the situation in the Palestinian lands as "alleged occupation" in an interview with ‘Israeli' daily The Jerusalem Post that was published on Friday. It was his first major interview with Zionist media.

‘Israel' occupied the West Bank and East al-Quds during the Six Day War in 1967. It later annexed East al-Quds in a move that has not been recognized by the international community. In November 1967, the United Nations Security Council [UNSC] adopted Resolution 242, under which the Zionist entity is required to withdraw from all territories seized in the war.

US politicians, as high in ranking as President Donald Trump himself, have in the past exhibited a loose relationship with facts.

However, it is unlikely that Friedman used the phrase in the Friday interview unwittingly. He is a hawkish politician known for his hardline stance against Palestinians.

According to The Guardian, a Palestinian official whom the British paper did not name demanded clarification from the US regarding Friedman's comment.

"Our understanding is that when someone has an official position, like being an ambassador, this person does no longer speak in a personal capacity. Mr. Friedman should realize that denying facts doesn't mean that they don't exist," the Palestinian official said.
