Hillary Clinton’s campaign website is progressive on a lot of things. But no change on Israel/Palestine. “If you challenge Israel’s security, you challenge America’s security. Plain and simple.” Israel gets three mentions, Palestine zero. Of course, earlier this week she pledged to fight boycott movement in a letter to a big donor. And she “is moving left on every issue except Israel,” says Haaretz.
Her website says, “America First,” on one page, then puts forward two pro-Israel planks under the rubric, “Defending America and our core values”:
Prevent a nuclear Iran:
America and our allies, especially Israel, will be safer if we end the nuclear threat from Iran. Thanks to the toughest, farthest-reaching global sanctions in history, Iran has been forced to the negotiating table, giving us an opportunity to reach an agreement.
And strengthen partnerships:
From the Middle East and Asia to Europe and our own hemisphere, we will strengthen the essential partnerships that are a unique source of America’s global strength. That’s particularly true of Israel, which is why we will continue supporting Iron Dome and other defense initiatives. If you challenge Israel’s security, you challenge America’s security. Plain and simple.
Nothin about foreign policy on Bernie Sanders’s Issues page.
