Daybreak: Clinton’s Diplomatic Challenge

Plus fear of loners, and more Goldstone back-and-forth

Print Email

• Visting Morocco, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton clarified her praise for what she’d called Israel’s “unprecedented” concessions in the settlements: after Arab leaders expressed dismay that she seemed to be cutting Israel a break, Clinton reiterated that “the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” [NYT]
• The arrest of a Jewish settler in Israel for murder and terrorism has the media there considering “the risks even lone attackers can pose to stability in a tinderbox region.” [Reuters]
• A joint French-British initiative lays out a list of “red lines” without which they and other members of the European Union will abstain from voting on any U.N. resolution on the Goldstone Report; conditions include requiring Israel and the Palestinians to conduct independent investigations into accusations of war crimes. [Haaretz]
• Meanwhile, AIPAC is urging the U.S. House of Representatives to pass a resolution condemning the Goldstone Report as “part of an ongoing effort at the U.N. to single out Israel and to deny Israel the same rights accorded to other nations.” [JTA]
