This is in reply to the two students who ask Sens. McCain and Flake to defeat President Trump’s nomination of David Friedman as ambassador to Israel (“An open letter to senators re: David Friedman,” Jewish News, Feb. 17). They are ignoring salient facts in their presentation.

    First and foremost our President seeks to win his stated goals. Peace between Israel and a fractured Palestinian state, increasingly supported by an increasingly hostile United Nations majority. This has been a losing effort since 1967 opened a greater Israel sans the almost indefensible 1948 borders.
    Yet so much has transpired including ISIS, the Iran deal allowing surrogate Hezbollah, Hamas reinforcement, explosive Syria up to the Golan Heights with Russia creating an increasingly chaotic challenge. So even though oil has been displaced as the commanding ingredient in the mix, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States have actually with Egypt and Jordan become frenemies of Israel.
    Thus, with a savvy Secretary of State, Trump shifts to a highly charged settlement issue that is not really existential to Israeli survival but a powerful negotiating gambit to more realistically open a new negotiating stance toward his "impossible dream".. No Don Quitay, he. As President he deserves a right to pick his own representative with son-in-law Jerold driving the new policy supported by Saudi Arabia and Sissi of Egypt that Bibi just discussed with Trump to have Palestine in Sinai and Gaza leaving West Bank for Israel. Not a pipe dream but funded by Saudis in a new coalition on Sunnis against Iran.
    P.S. I am so proud of Dr. Sari Roth Roemer and her leadership Board effort and am donating $500 in her honor to Hillel.
