US Ambassador Attacks Leftwing ’Israeli’ Newspaper
Local Editor

The American ambassador to the Zionist entity attacked an "Israeli" leftwing newspaper Friday, questioning whether it had any "dignity" after a vitriolic column.

David Friedman

The quarrel erupted after the Haaretz newspaper criticized US Ambassador David Friedman, personally selected by US President Donald Trump, for his support of illegal settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

This followed the operation in which an "Israeli" rabbi from the Har Bracha settlement was killed on Monday.

After that Friedman tweeted that he had provided an ambulance for the community 20 years ago and criticized Palestinian leaders for praising the operation.

In response Haaretz, which opposes settlement building in the Palestinian territories, ran a column by commentator Gideon Levy saying that "with Friedman's ambulance or without it, Har Bracha [literally, 'Mountain of Blessing'] is a mountain of curses."

It accused Friedman of "encouraging and funding war crimes and violations of international law".

More than 600,000 Zionist occupy settlements in the West Bank and east al-Quds that are considered illegal under international law.

Friedman, who was Trump's personal lawyer before being confirmed as ambassador in May 2017, has previously angered the Palestinians by referring to the alleged occupation of the West Bank and claiming that the Zionist entity occupies only two percent of the West Bank.
