It’s looking more and more like I was wrong about Obama being a lightweight when it comes to Israel’s right for self defense. I’m happy about that! Yet these are still just words. G-d willing, they will align with Senator Clinton’s words. Though I still wonder why he couldn’t say this when he was asked about it.
WASHINGTON JTA — Hillary Clinton said the Obama administration would not negotiate with Hamas unless it meets certain conditions.
“I think on Israel, you cannot negotiate with Hamas until it renounces violence, recognizes Israel and agrees to abide by past agreements,” said the nominee for secretary of state on Tuesday at her confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee. “That is just for me, you know, an absolute. That is the United States governments position; that is the president-elects position.”
