Clinton: ‘Israelis Know’ I’ve Been A Strong Supporter of Israel


Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton this week touted her strong support for Israel as Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz suggested that she and Donald Trump share a similar “neutral” stance on Israel, Jewish Insider reports.

“The Israelis know that I have been a strong and stalwart partner for Israel going back decades, along with my husband,” Clinton told John Catsimatidis on the “Cats Roundtable” radio program on AM 970 in New York. “And I will continue to do what I have done to protect Israel, to make sure Israel has the strongest possible defense and to do what I can to promote a two-state solution, which I personally believe is in Israel’s interest.”

During her interview with John Catsimatidis, Clinton acknowledged that she supported the Iran nuclear deal as she led the effort to bring together a coalition in support of the sanctions regime that drove Iran to the negotiation table. But she also promised she would “come down hard” if Iran deviates “one centimeter” from the agreement. Read more at Jewish Insider.
