Hillary Clinton believes both Republican candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz "missed the mark" with their approach to the Israel-Palestinian Arab conflict

Former Secretary of State and current Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton believes both Republican candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz "missed the mark" with their approach to the Israel-Palestinian Arab conflict. Speaking Sunday to CNN, Clinton vowed to support Israel but also said she would insist on the "two-state solution", that is the formation of a…

Nice article! I agree with Gibbon. Israel’s continued control of the West Bank is an unlawful military occupation, and that settlements violate the Fourth Geneva Convention.

If anyone read Jimmi Carters book about aparthied of the Palestinians,

A two state solution is the only way.

The West Bank is a prison!

Medical supplies and basic living essentials are rationed by Israel.

They are NOT a true democracy like our past with the Indians and African American camps.

The notion of "defending Israel" while calling for another partitioning of Israel is an absurd contradiction. Note that Israel already ceded two sizable chunks of the country in prior peace "agreements," only to have their Arab neighbors promptly disregard those agreements. Keep in mind that Israel is a tiny country, roughly the size of New Jersey, one of our smallest states. It is surrounded by oil-rich Arab nations that make up nearly all of the Mideast. Many Arabs live in peace in Israel. "Palestinians" designate that group who serve to help wipe out the Jewish nation. Every Arab in Israel lives within easy travelling distance of an Arab border. To many Americans, a "fair partitioning" would be: 100% for the Arabs, 0% for the Jews.

The story of Israel is the same as the story of America. in 1600's Calvinists arrived and told the native population to get off their land "God gave it to us" That was the basis of our self-righteous "manifest destiny" policy. Besides the Native Americans did not have "Jesus" so it was right and proper to exterminate them... seize their lands.. and later in mid 1900's a young Joseph Smith used the same argument in forming the Mormon religion by declaring the American Continent was their's first and eventually would n]be again by dissolving the US Constitution and Government structure... as it is intended that Mormon Church law would be the law of the land and "the President of the Mormon Church and the President of the United States would be the same person.. Then in 1948 Jews migrated in numbers to the middle east and told the Palestinians to get their "asses off their land" as it was deeded to Moses earlier and now to be reclaimed to restore the Jewish homeland. Thus, life goes on ... as one "tribe" takes over what another "tribe" owns by virtue of their own version of celestial authority. So in the final analysis.. after thousands of years, mankind is still a collection of competing tribes with their own celestial validation. As a Quaker, I have an obligation by faith to believe God would sanction a "two state solution: in mid-east. It seems the right thing to do... instead of continuing to kill off the competitor for land in His name. Thus, God must have a sense of humor about what he created... humans.

I'm with you. The Israeli's and Palestinians use to live harmoniously. The present occupation is patently illegal. An occupying force, according to International Law, is required to respect the occupied land, and, furthermore not harm them. It is illegal to attack the occupied, but it is not illegal for the occupied to fight back if they are (hence, I get fired up when Hamas is called a terrorist group). The fact that the US supports Israel in the sense that they provide Israel with obscene amounts of money is a disgrace. If another country was perpetrating the kind of oppression, theft, and land takeover that has been done to the Palestinians, we'd go to war to protect 'human rights' (especially if there was some financial gain to be had). But there is a lot of Israeli money backing our government.....Zionists (I am not an anti-semetic) don't have to 'hack' our elections, they buy them by donating to candidates who will stand by them.

Netanyahu's hasbara rhetoric to American's (2-state solution) is quite different from his rhetoric to Israeli citizen's (No state solution). So I guess Hillary will tell him "Cut it out!" The question is will she allow the 50+ year U.N. resolution to move forward this time or once again veto it as the U.S. does every year? Also, by definition, Israel cannot be a U.S. ally since we require all allies to have discrete, legal, settled borders, which Israel has never had!

On June 5, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed an executive order which punishes public bodies if their public funds are invested in companies which support the BDS movement. Presumably the punishment is a reduction or elimination of future funding until divestment is accomplished.

Hilary, Obama, and Netanyahu should all have to do community service in the Gaza Strip for a year....possilby as teacher and/or medical auxillaries after appropriate training.

Yes, why not include Ted Cruz, Rubio, Kasich, numerous Israeli spokesman--like junior fascist Mark Regev, and members of the US congress, and members of AIPAC....I think there are only so many volunteer slots unfortunately.

Hilary can teach ethics in government, Obama can teach 'truthful campagining' and Netanyahu can teach 'theater,' and Mark Regev can teach a course highlighting the dangers or fascism.

I believe Hillary "missed the mark" by promising to dismantle the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement - a peaceful movement - one of the very few areas where Palestians have some leverage. It's also one of the reasons that I'll never, ever vote for Hillary.

After 24 years, you'd think people would be able to see her rhetoric coming from a football field away... it's just rhetoric. She will say anyhting to get elected and then after the fact, to keep democrats chasing the carrot.

I do agree that she will say anything to get elected. I don't believe she gives a damn about helping the Palestinian people. They need help and are being ignored globally, while the Israeli government continues genocide and imprisonment on these people. It's a constant, current, holocaust without end.

1994 - Arifat-Rabin Nobel peace prize for proposed two state solution. Then, Rabin assassinated and Netanyahu elected. U turn, land grab, land grab, land grab. 20 years later Netanyahu again.

A two state solution is no longer possible. Israel has claimed, settled, and carved up so much land, a Palestinian state is no longer possible. Israel will need to evacuate and abandon hundreds of billions of dollars of infrastructure. This was the plan. Israeli conservatives executed it well. Now what?

I say do not reward Israel. Provide them with NOTHING until they evacuate all land back to the 1969 boarders. How much land does Hillary or any other two state solution candidate suggest Israel relinquish? It will never happen. That was the plan.

I fully support a Jewish state, but no more so than a Palestinian state. Why would any reasonable individual support one and not the other? Sometimes I fear my Jewish friends have forgotten some of the lessons of the holocaust, while over focusing upon others.

We've been hearing about the "two-state solution" since Arafat-Begin with Carter in 1978. I fear we will continue to hear, but not see any movement, for a long time as long as America's government continues to kiss Israel's ass.

BTW, why do we send military aid to Israel? It is not a Third World country AND it exports military items to other countries.

Hillary Clinton, With Little Notice, Vows to Embrace an Extremist Agenda on Israel

Former President Bill Clinton on Monday met in secret (no press allowed) with roughly 100 leaders of South Florida’s Jewish community, and, as the Times of Israel reports, “He vowed that, if elected, Hillary Clinton would make it one of her top priorities to strengthen the U.S.-Israel alliance.” He also “stressed the close bond that he and his wife have with the State of Israel.” you have to read on....

I agree with Tinmanth....it is not "anti-Semitic" to criticize the policies of the Israeli government.

Tinmanth 3 years 16 weeks ago

It is more than possible to support Israel and deplore the behavior of their government. Just like America.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
