• Better Find Out: ‘President Elizabeth Warren’ Hostile to the State of Israel?

    Surge Summary: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren signals she might not be the friend of Israel that so many other presidents have proven to be.

    by Gary Bauer

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren made it clear this weekend that if elected president, she would side with the Palestinians and against the state of Israel.

    When asked by a reporter whether she would use U.S. aid to Israel as leverage to stop Israeli construction of homes in Judea and Samaria, Warren said this:

    “It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table.”

    When the reporter attempted to ask a follow-up question, Warren cut him off and doubled down, saying, “Everything’s on the table.”  By the way, Warren is not alone in her position.

    But her position is shocking for several reasons.  Usually when politicians use the phrase, “Everything is on the table,” they mean that as a euphemism for military action.

    Setting that aside, the United States cannot impose a peace deal on Israel or the Palestinians.  Nor is Israel the problem.

    The Palestinians have repeatedly rejected generous peace deals that would have created a Palestinian state.  They also continue to subsidize terrorism against innocent Israelis, and they are teaching their children to hate Israelis.

    Moreover, who would run this new Palestinian state?  Hamas, which already controls Gaza, is committed to Israel’s destruction and is leading in most polls.  It is not in Israel’s interest or ours to create another radical Islamic state in the Middle East.
