Ben-Gurion correctly predicted that the occupation would corrupt Israel, and that it could even "destroy" it.
Bush, Jeb Bush. In an op-ed in National Journal, Jeb Bush writes, "The Obama administration treats announcements of new apartment buildings in Jerusalem like acts of aggression." Perhaps not noticing that even a majority of Republicans recognise some portions of international law. On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton has a strong following of American Jews garnered from Bill Clinton's time in the White House as "America's first Jewish president" and her years serving as a Senator in New York.
It will be a funding war between Sheldon Adelson for the severe right wing, and Haim Saban for the left wing of the political spectrum.
Hillary Clinton firmly supports the Two State Solution(tm) yet that position in 2016 seems no longer tenable. The idea of two states, and the very compact that the nascent state of Israel made with the world in 1948 by agreeing to the UN partition resolution, included two states. But this chimera has faded even as politicians vying for votes either maintain the fiction that it is possible, or those on the Israeli hard right (and some in the US), that the Palestinians don't even exist; to them a state of Palestine is worse than a summer case of poison ivy.
Unless President Obama recognises the state of Palestine, it's hard to even conceive the idea of a viable Palestine in 2016. Under Benjamin Netanyahu, the Palestinian Authority (PA) is far more likely to disintegrate. #Barack Obama #Government
