What doesThe Democratic Party Have Against Jewish Babies ?
The issue of natural growth of existing settlements is an important one for Israel. Without that growth, parents who have lots of children will not be able to move into a bigger apartment, children who get married and have kids will not be able to live near their parents.
Elliott Abrams, the former deputy national security adviser who was intimately involved in the issue of Israeli settlements, acknowledged that there were understandings regarding natural growth in a Washington Post article in April….But President Obama, and SOS Clinton have made it absolutely clear that the old US/Israel agreement is is no longer OK with the US government. The clear message being given to Jerusalem by some key supporters in the US is that this time, there is not going to be a lot of understanding in the Democratic Congress for any building in the settlements..So what is going on here? Is Obama breaking the agreement in order to be able to use the settlements to distance himself from Israel and toward the Muslim world….
