Friedman Sworn In: 'I Will Work "Tirelessly To Strengthen The Unbreakable Bond" Between Israel-US'

The Trump's administration's new Israel ambassador, David Friedman, has been sworn into this important diplomatic position, reports CBN. Friedman is arguably the most pro-"settlement" ambassador ever sent out to the Jewish state, at a time when the US embassy may well relocate to Jerusalem.

Vice President Mike Pence said Friedman's appointment proves the Trump administration has Israel's back. "The president of the United States of America is a lifelong friend of Israel and the Jewish people and under his leadership if the world knows nothing else, the world will know this: America stands with Israel."

Friedman added, "Those facts speak volumes about how highly the Trump-Pence administration prioritizes our unbreakable bond with the State of Israel." Alongside Israeli U.S. Ambassador Ron Dermer, Friedman vowed to work "tirelessly to strengthen the unbreakable bond" between the U.S. and Israel and to advance "the cause of peace within the region." The new ambassador also supports the administration's plan to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
