"If you have ever wondered just how much the occupation and the settlements have corrupted Israeli society and have held the Right and the political leadership hostage, look no further than the shameful silence of just about every Israeli official vis-a-vis American anti-Semitism ... the Israeli Right has become a single-issue movement: it is willing to sell out the State of Israel for the...

An unequivocal statement from the descendants of Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis: "Mr. Friedman, by his words and support of the Israeli settler movement, does not reflect what we believe should be American policy toward Israel. Further, he appears intolerant of opposing views and unable to represent American interests in the Middle East. We oppose his nomination."

Why did the Israeli justice minister just add three right-wing judges to the Supreme Court? To continue "perpetuating the occupation and advancing the annexation of the West Bank to Israel, all while expanding settlements and without granting citizenship to the Palestinians."

Nahum Barnea: "The media outlets that Trump is attacking will not be deterred and will continue to expose his misdeeds. The same applies to Netanyahu’s attempts to suffocate the criticism against him in Israel."

Gershom Gorenberg: "The American-educated, American-accented prime minister of Israel is profoundly out of touch with the majority of American Jews. For U.S. political support, he has always depended on a right-wing minority of American Jewry, on conservative Christian evangelicals and on the Republican Party."

Netanyahu doesn’t think Trump has a Jewish problem. And that’s a problem.

"Azaria’s punishment was decided in the political realm, not by the courts, in a compromise that characterizes the occupation’s conflicting needs at any given moment. Law and justice are not the story of the occupation."

Yossi Alpher: "Even if we find some solace in Netanyahu’s caution during his White House visit, the bottom line from Washington is yet another stage in Israel’s ongoing slide down the slippery slope toward a disastrous one-state reality – even if it goes by another name in the Trump era."

APN's Lara Friedman: "The rise of Trump has been a wake-up call to Americans about the need to stand up and defend democratic rights and values. It remains to be seen if it will likewise alert them to the dangers of allowing the 'Greater Israel' agenda to hijack U.S. law and undermine the Constitution."

Senator Tim Kaine: "I've heard a lot of folks talking lately about annexation plans and one state. We need to remember – that's not just real estate we're talking about here. This is about people . . . the U.S. wouldn't ever support [permanent second class status for Palestinians]."

Jane Eisner: "In pre-Trump Washington, a man like David Friedman would never have come before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee as a nominee to be ambassador to Israel. Not after he insulted, in writing, a sitting U.S. president; many members of the Senate, including the Democratic Minority leader; top officials of Jewish organizations, and the entire State Department."
