David Friedman arrives in Israel to take up ambassador position

CNN told not to report city Trump revealed David Friedman arrives in Israel to take up ambassador position

US President Donald Trump's confidante David Friedman presented his credentials as US Ambassador to Israel to President Reuven Rivlin on Tuesday morning in Jerusalem.

The newly appointed USA ambassador to Israel arrived in Jerusalem on Monday. The United States does not recognize that annexation, nor really does anybody else, though Israeli officials are keen to draw distinctions between the Old City, where the Western Wall is, East Jerusalem, and the rest of the occupied West Bank, even though from a legal perspective the distinctions are largely arbitrary.

"Well, it was a long trip, we're a bit exhausted".

"I know it's going to be an awesome trip", he said.

Friedman has also backed the idea of moving the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to East Jerusalem al-Quds. U.S. policy is that Israel has no sovereignty over any part of Jerusalem, even the western side of the city which, historically, has been recognized as "the Jewish area".

He has not made a decision on his future and retirement could be one of the options for the Chelsea legend. Terry is yet to receive an offer for his services from England or overseas .

His appointment comes as Trump seeks ways to restart moribund Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts, and questions have been raised over whether Friedman will be able to put his personal views aside.

But diplomatic protocol was quickly adopted by this passionate hawk, who has engaged in the past in fundraising for the West Bank settlement of Beit El, and for the time being he will have to settle for the luxurious residence in Herzliya and the embassy in Tel Aviv.

The rocker, who will perform at Tel Aviv's Yarkon Park on Wednesday, arrived in Israel on Saturday.

The Palestinians want al-Quds as the capital of their promised future state.
