Democratic Party Platform Committee Rejects “Occupation” Language

1

Supporters of Hillary Clinton on the Democratic Party platform committee this past weekend rejected several proposals that would have undermined the party’s longstanding support for Israel, Jacob Kornbluh reports for Jewish Insider.

At a meeting of the platform drafting committee in Orlando, supporters of Bernie Sanders proposed an amendment that would add “an end to occupation and illegal settlements” to the original language. The proposal was voted down 95-73.
