More Israel Troubles for Barack
Submitted By Todd on June 7th at 2:05pm
Speaking to AIPAC early in the week, Barack said:
Then, on Thursday, he told CNN that that fate of the city would be up to Israel and the Palestinians to discuss.
"Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided."
A campaign adviser also told the Jerusalem Post that the U.S. senator from
Illinois would not rule out Palestinian sovereignty over parts of the
disputed city. The clarifications came after Obama's remarks to the AIPAC confab in
Washington were met with harsh reaction from the Palestinians.
Instead of calming the situation, it has been exacerbated. Not good news for the guy with the best judgment for handling international affairs, as some speculate that this sort of mistake is a sign of inexperience.
