Dr. Saeb Erekat on Friedman's Latest Interview

Press Releases
October 16, 2019

David Friedman’s latest interview with a radical Israeli right-wing media outlet reaffirms the ideological commonalities between the Trump team and the Israeli settlers’ movement. Both agree that Israeli settlements, recognized as war crimes under international law that deny the Palestinian right to self-determination, should remain in occupied Palestine forever. This includes US support for Israel’s illegal annexation of Occupied Jerusalem, the capital of the State of Palestine.

Peace-loving countries have the responsibility to take immediate action to save the prospects of a just and lasting peace against the systematic attempts of the US administration and Israel to undermine international law and perpetuate the denial of the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine.
