This is what Hillary Clinton announced:<quoted text>
We will see what they do
If they were sincere they would of given the other assurances I listed.
Of note: Israel announced today they were approving another 3000 housing units across the green line. It is widely assumed this is to prevent a continuous Arab settlement from Ramallah to Jerusalem. The Catholic Church also announced that they wanted the parties to start "negotiating" Jerusalem (codeword- give up Jewish soveriegnty). Based upon the Church's predictable response to the UN (which wasnt supposed to bring other actions into the mix), I dont blame Israel for issuing the housing starts.
" Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that "these activities set back the cause of a negotiated peace".
The White House had earlier described the proposal as "counter-productive" .
Addressing a Washington audience that included Israel's Defence Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, Mrs Clinton said the vote "should give all of us pause. All sides need to consider carefully the path ahead".
The Palestinians had to be persuaded, she said, that negotiations with Israel were the only path to an independent state.
It was in Israel's interest, she added, to make generous steps towards Palestinians in the West Bank as a bulwark for Israeli security, "whether or not there is a comprehensive agreement in the near future".
This Israeli regime is as insane as Hamas, Frijoles.
Note that she said almost the same thing as Rabbi Lerner had said earlier. Perhaps, she had read his thoughts.
