Clinton Criticizes Israel

By Ben Cohen

No where near enough, but a start in the right direction. From the Guardian:

Hillary Clinton criticised Israel‘s

plans to demolish dozens of homes in Arab East Jerusalem today during a

joint news conference with the Palestinian president, Mahmoud Abbas.

The

US secretary of state said the move was a violation of Israel’s

international obligations and said the US would raise the matter with

the country’s leaders.

“Clearly this kind of activity is

unhelpful and not in keeping with the obligations entered into under

the ‘road map’,” she said, referring to the long-stalled peace plan.

“It is an issue that we intend to raise with the government of Israel

and the government at the municipal level in Jerusalem.”
