US Ambassador Friedman seeks "to complete the colonialist Zionist project to completely take control of the Arab region and ensure its submission" states PA

Excerpt of an op-ed by Bassem Barhoum, regular columnist for the official PA daily

 

Headline: “Friedman: An abnormally insolent ambassador”

 

“[US Ambassador to Israel David] Friedman – who, together with [Senior US Presidential Advisor Jared] Kushner, is managing a process of eliminating the Palestinian cause and a campaign of besieging the Palestinian people – is inciting the Israelis and the Arab states that [US presidential candidate Joe] Biden’s victory is bad for them, because the American policy would change for the benefit of Iran…

Whoever monitors Friedman’s statements and actions will notice that he is the new high commissioner to complete the Balfour Promise (i.e., Declaration), and even more than this, to complete the colonialist Zionist project to completely take control of the Arab region and ensure its submission to this project’s goals. He is not a regular ambassador, but rather one of the leaders of the annexation plan.”

 

 

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that "His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate "responsible for putting into effect the declaration," which led to the UN vote in favor of partitioning Mandatory Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state in 1947. In response, Britain ended its mandate on May 15, 1948, and the Palestinian Jews, who accepted the Partition Plan, declared the independent State of Israel. The Palestinian Arabs rejected the plan and together with 7 Arab states attacked Israel, in what is now known as Israel's War of Independence.
