The liberal hue and cry over the appointment of David Friedman as Trump's ambassador to Israel

I don't understand the commotion.  David Friedman is a fanatic Zionist and someone who has expressed racist views to Muslims and Arabs.  That is clear. But I don't in any way think that Dennis Ross or Aaron David Miller or David Shapiro are any better or less fanatical in their Zionism.  In fact, over the decades, Dennis Ross and Aaron David Miller and Martin Indyk did so much damage in foreign policy that David Friedman would be hard press to match.  Get a hold of yourselves and stop pretending that US foreign policy was "even-handed" and "sensible" until David Friedman came along.
