Israel’s Right and Left split on Trump pick for next US envoy to Israel

Reactions to President-elect Donald Trump’s choice of bankruptcy lawyer David Friedman as US ambassador to Israel were divided along political lines in the Knesset, with the Right enthusiastically backing the opponent to a two-state solution and the Left ranging from ambivalent to antagonistic.

Education Minister Naftali Bennett (Bayit Yehudi) tweeted a photo of himself with Friedman, wishing him good luck. “The chosen US ambassador to Israel is a great friend of Israel,” Bennett wrote.
