As you may have noticed, there have been a few interesting articles lately about Clinton’s stance on Israel. (Above, she meets with then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on March 3 in Jerusalem.)
I don’t have time today to elaborate further, but here are two links:
“Clinton Counters Israeli Stance on Palestinians and Iran” (Washington Post): “Progress on establishing a Palestinian state must go ‘hand-in-hand’ with efforts to stem Iranian influence in the Middle East, Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said [April 23], implicitly rejecting the emerging position of the new Israeli government.”
“Clinton’s Mideast Pirouette” (New York Times op-ed): “I hear that Clinton was shocked by what she saw on her visit last month to the West Bank. This is not surprising. The transition from Israel’s first-world hustle-bustle to the donkeys, carts and idle people beyond the separation wall is brutal. If Clinton cares about one thing, it’s human suffering.”
And as usual, Secretary Clinton’s official schedule:
7:45 a.m. Weekly Breakfast with Vice President Biden
11:00 a.m. Congressional Tribute: Bust Unveiling of Sojourner Truth, Emancipation Hall, U.S. Capitol
2:30 p.m. Special press briefing by U.S. Special Envoy for Climate Change Todd Stern and Deputy National Security Advisor for International Economic Affairs Michael Froman in the press briefing room 2209.
