By Shiryn Solny.. Speaking exclusively with JNS.org, US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman on Sunday night (November 12, 2017) confirmed a report that a team from the Trump administration is drafting an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan. “We’re working very hard on it,” Friedman said of the Mideast peace proposal, in an interview at the Zionist Organization of America’s (ZOA) annual awards dinner in New York City. “It’s hard to comment on it while we’re in the middle, because it’s delicate.” He added that more information about the plan will be publicized in “a few months.” Friedman is on the four-person team drafting the proposal, along with President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, Special Representative for International Negotiations Jason Greenblatt and Deputy National Security Advisor Dina Powell. The New York Times reported Saturday that the team is consulting with US Consul General in Jerusalem Donald Blome, as well as others from the State Department and the National Security Council.

The ambassador was among the honorees at Sunday’s ZOA event. Friedman told the crowd that while the US is “the nation of my birth, the nation of my citizenship,” Israel “is the nation of my faith [and] no loyal American need apologize for loving Israel and urging our government to support it. Support for Israel is a quintessential American value.” Read the full story.
