While I was a supporter of Donald Trump pretty much from the beginning, mainly to ward off the alternative ie the deadly danger of the Obama-Clinton-Sorros-Muslim Brotherhood gang even intensifying their promotion of this destructive global Islamisation, now I have found some more reasons to like him, e.g. the choice of people he surrounds himself with.
One of them is David Friedman, his adviser on Israel affairs. He says that the United States should let Israel decide how to solve its conflict with the PA. “He’s not for or against, per se, a two-state solution,” Friedman told Channel 10 News’s Tamar Ish Shalom in an interview. “What he’s for is respecting the independence of the Israeli government and their democratically elected leadership to reach, without pressure from the United States, their own vision of how the Israelis and the Palestinians should live side by side.”
There are numerous paths which can be taken to solve the conflict, Friedman added, but Trump “will not have his finger on the scale trying to push Israel in a particular direction. He has great confidence in the Israeli government and the Israeli people.”
Trump believes the people of Israel are peace loving people who “are doing the best they can to balance their desire to achieve human rights and democracy and their need for security against a very treacherous enemy.”
“Unless and until they come to him seeking help, I think he’s going to respect their views,” Friedman told Channel 10 News.
“Israel is an ally and a partner, and they’re a partner in a very important task – the joint effort to defeat radical Islamism. So it’s not in the United States’ interest to weaken Israel or to cause Israel to be distracted by the political wishes outside of their own country,” he added.
“We’re going to respect the democratic process in Israel,” stressed Friedman.

As to solving its conflict with the Palestinian Authority, I wish Israel good luck agreeing as I do with a friend who once told me:
"debating Muslims and leftists is like playing chess with a pigeon , it will knock all the pieces over , shit all over the board and then claim victory" (or words to that effect).
I have not read this New York Times article yet, but I'm told they are freaking out over Donald Trump's choice of David Friedman.
