Hillary Clinton Puts America on Collision Course with Israel as She Pledges to Press for Palestinian State


www.dailymail.co.uk

Hillary Clinton put America on a collision course with Israel today after pledging to press for a Palestinian state.
The U.S. Secretary of State's position brings her into conflict with the Israeli Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu.

Although Netanyahu has spoken of Palestinian self-government, he has shied away from a two-state solution to the Middle East conflict.

Israel exerts not only political pressure. As well, just look at the banking structure and entertainment industries. There are so many American dollars controlled by Israeli interests and supporters, that it's a tough tie to break and what appears, to me at least, as a one-way street.

Shimon Peres confirmed the hawkish Benjamin Netanyahu as his prime minister after last month's close election.
Netanyahu supports expansion of existing Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, a policy strongly opposed by Washington.

Netanyahu, clashed often with former president Bill Clinton, the Secretary of State's husband. You may recall how peace talks brokered by President Clinton broke down in 2000, his final year in office, and a new wave of violence swept the region.
Discussions were revived during the Bush administration in late 2007 but stalled over violence, settlement-building and disputes over other core issues such as the future of Jerusalem and Palestinian refugees.

Is this a sign of things to come?

Isn’t Obama showing the hand he kept close to his vest, but hinted at, during the campaign and general election?

I’m no Zionist, but isn’t Israel our only ally in the Middle East?

God, we're turning into W. Europe.

I recall Obama saying he would support a divided Jerusalem, while he was campaigning. One half would be the Jewish capital, the other for the Palestinians.

Pay more attention to the action Obama(Clinton) takes rather than the words.

This could very well be manipulated to look like the US and Israel are at odds when in reality they are just scratching each others back.

Who is Obama's Chief of Staff again?

He's showing his true colors, a little at a time. Despite his rhetoric, his actions will bear out his disdain.

Emmanuel was in the Clinton administration when ties got strained. I think RH's allegiance is stronger to the agenda than to religion.

Because of the strong financial ties, Israel will always be in "the equation." We may no longer be as beholden to their whines and gripes, but there'll always be ties and enemies.

I doubt the enemies would disappear if we disavowed all interest in Israel today. Too many hard feelings too deeply entrenched.

And a Palestinian State won't appease anyone either, not even many Palestinians!

that part of the picture will never change, regardless of the US relationship with Israel.

In my opinion.
