Hilary Clinton Vows Strong Advocacy for Israel if elected
« on: March 22, 2016, 06:46:40 AM »
Hillary Clinton, the leading U.S. Democratic presidential candidate, told American advocates for Israel Monday that if she is elected she would be a staunch advocate for the Jewish state.

The former U.S. secretary of state drew long cheers from thousands of people at a Washington conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee as she denounced the statement by the front-running Republican presidential contender, real estate mogul Donald Trump, that he would be "neutral" in trying to negotiate a peace accord between Israel and the Palestinians.

She said the U.S. does not need "a president who says he?s neutral on Monday, pro-Israel on Tuesday and who knows what on Wednesday because everything is negotiable. Well my friends, Israel?s security is non-negotiable. America can't ever be neutral when it comes to Israel's security."

"Some things are not negotiable.  Someone who doesn't understand that has no business being America's president," Clinton said.

The Democratic front-runner was the first of four U.S. presidential candidates set to speak to the group, with Trump and two other Republican contenders, Texas Senator Ted Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich, appearing later.  The lone Jewish candidate among the five remaining presidential candidates, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, turned down an invitation to speak.

Clinton, the top U.S. diplomat from 2009 to 2013, said the U.S. has "a strong and enduring national interest in Israel's security and we will never allow Israel's adversaries to think a wedge can be driven between us."

She called for prompt adoption of a new 10-year U.S. military assistance package for Tel Aviv  and said, "I will make sure Israel maintains its qualitative military edge" in the Middle East.  Clinton said that if she is elected president in the national U.S. election in November, one of the first things she would do upon taking office in January 2017 would be to invite Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the White House.
