Saying that the “world has changed dramatically,” Ambassador David Friedman urged the U.S. and Israel to revisit West Bank policies to ensure a solution “that works for people living in 2018.”
In an interview with Breitbart in Jerusalem, Friedman suggested the 1949 armistice that divvied up the land should be revisited.
“I certainly encourage the policymakers to engage in a conversation to make sure we have our policies right in the West Bank,” Friedman told Breitbart. “I think those policies were set many years ago, and I’m not aware that they have been revisited. And yet the world has changed dramatically in that period.
“I think the Israelis should do that as well — meaning they ought to think about the best way to create the best possible environment for Palestinians and Jews living on the West Bank,” Friedman said.
“Let’s come up with a solution for 2018 that works for people living in 2018,” Friedman told Breitbart.
