SPUTNIK NEWS – June 17, 2018: American envoy to Israel reportedly criticized the State Department in October over possible obstructions to US military assistance to Tel Aviv, which may be caused by a close scrutiny of the Israeli military operations.
US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman insisted that the State Department shouldn’t “second-guess” the actions of the Israeli military, Politico reports, citing a chain of emails provided by a former State Department official familiar with the issue.
“Israel is a democracy whose army does not engage in gross violations of human rights,” Friedman wrote.
(BattleForWorld: There’s the wording deception. David Friedman is a lawyer. His wording says, Israel does not engage in “gross violations of human rights”, and that implies that a certain amount of human rights violations is necessary, in low amounts, which is acceptable to the United States and their western allies and is not considered has gross violations of human rights. Now, who are the persons judging human rights behavior in Syria, North Korea, Iran, etc. as gross violations or just human rights violations, but always mute into low Israel’s gross violations of human rights for it not to count?)
