RJC Statement on the Selection of David Friedman as United States Ambassador to Israel

Washington D.C. – The Republican Jewish Coalition released the following statement from Executive Director Matt Brooks:

"The selection of Mr. David Friedman to serve as United States Ambassador to Israel sends a powerful signal to the Jewish community and the State of Israel that President-elect Trump's administration will strengthen the bond between our two countries and advance the cause of peace within the region.

"We look forward to working with David and the entire Trump administration to cripple Iran’s ability to develop nuclear weapons through new and strengthened sanctions, move the U.S. embassy to the eternal capital of Israel, Jerusalem, and repair relations with our greatest ally in the Middle East that have eroded over the last eight years."
