Secretary of State Hillary Clinton disputes Israeli Ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren's statement to "fellow Israeli diplomats that relations between the two countries are 'in a crisis.'" 1
According to an article published today at CNN Politics, Hillary Clinton believes that there is no crisis. "'Oh, I don't buy that,' Clinton told reporters Tuesday at the State Department." "'We have an absolute commitment to Israel's security. We have a close, unshakable bond between the United States and Israel and between the American and Israeli people.'"
Yet in her next breath, Hillary Clinton said that the United States is disappointed that Israel will allow 1,600 new settler housing units to be constructed in East Jerusalem. "'We'll see what the next days hold,' Clinton said. "'There's just too much at stake for the Palestinians and the Israelis. ... Our goal now is to make sure that we have the full commitment from both our Palestinian and Israeli partners to this effort.'" 1
Clinton also told Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the United States wants Israel to issue an official declaration that talks with the Palestinians, even indirect talks, would deal with all the conflict's core issues, including borders, refugees, Jerusalem and settlements, the sources said. 1
CONSERVATIVE WORDSMITH.COM COMMENTARY: It would be nice if Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would make up her mind about where the United States of America, under the leadership of the very liberal President Barack Obama, does stand regarding Israel and Jewish settlers.
If Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren thinks Israel and America are "in a crisis," that statement had better be taken seriously, especially by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the rest of President Barack Obama's leftist liberal democratic cabinet.
According to Hillary Clinton's own statements (see above), her concerns, in typical leftist liberal fashion, seems to be more focused on the Palestinians than on the Israelis. If that alone, besides a numerous amount of other pertinent factors, isn't enough to call this a crisis, then I don't know what is.
Either the United States of America is an ally and friend to the Israelis or an ally and friend to the Palestinians; being an ally and friend to both, in light of the terrorist organization Hamas' looming presence in Palestine, is not a wise choice.
Please, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, make up your mind who the U.S. is, in fact, supporting: Israel or Palestine? And please acknowledge that Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren is correct when he states that that the two countries are "in a crisis." The fact is, according to other News Sources (see Related Links below), the U.S./Israel relationship is at its lowest in 35 years.
