'US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman says the regime seeks “peace” and it is “blasphemous” to suggest otherwise, turning a blind eye on Tel Aviv’s incessant atrocities against the Palestinian nation.
Addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on Tuesday, the ambassador tried to eradicate the distinction between being "pro-Israel" and "pro-peace."
"If you support Israel, you must by definition support Israel living in peace with its neighbors," he said. "It's no less than blasphemous to suggest that any Jew or Christian is against peace."
‘Blame someone other than Israel’
Since US President Donald Trump in office, he has mended ties with Israel that had gone sour under former President Barrack Obama.
Despite stated efforts to bring about peace in the region, partly by appointing his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner, the president has been supporting Tel Aviv’s expansionist policies, including recognition of Jerusalem al-Quds as its “capital.”
despite that, Friedman insisted that someone else should be blamed for lack of peace in the region.
"If there is no peace as we speak, I strongly suggest that we blame someone other than Israel for this," he said, adding that he is "so proud of what our administration had achieved in the last year with regards to Israel."'
