Hillary Clinton Bashes Israel’s Settlement Activity, Highlights Yelling Sessions W/ Netanyahu

Hillary And Suha Credit UnknownFormer Seceraty of State and potential presidential candidate in 2016, Hillary Clinton on Sunday criticized Israel’s continued settlement activity while preaching for a two-state solution.

Speaking to Fareed Zakaria on CNN Sunday morning, Hillary said that the continued settlement activity is “my biggest complaint with the Israeli government.”

“I’m a strong supporter of Israel, a strong supporter of their right to defend themselves. But the continuing settlements, which have been denounced by successive American administrations on both sides of the aisle, are clearly a terrible signal to send if, at the same time, you claim you’re looking for a two-state solution,” she said.

During the interview, Hillary also took pride of her complicated relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as Secretary of state, saying she has a good relationship due to the fact that they can yell at each other. “I was often the ‘designated yeller,'” she said.
