Quote: Clinton on Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

by campaign2008
January 13, 2009

“The President-Elect and I understand and are deeply sympathetic to Israel’s desire to defend itself under the current conditions, and to be free of shelling by Hamas rockets.

However, we have also been reminded of the tragic humanitarian costs of conflict in the Middle East, and pained by the suffering of Palestinian and Israeli civilians. This must only increase our determination to seek a just and lasting peace agreement that brings real security to Israel; normal and positive relations with its neighbors; and independence, economic progress, and security to the Palestinians in their own state.”

Secretary of State-designate Hillary Clinton, in remarks at her Senate confirmation hearing on Tuesday.
