Clinton commits on borders, Jerusalem JTA

Hillary Clinton committed to an Israel with “defensible borders” and “an undivided Jerusalem as its capital” in her Israel position paper.

“Hillary Clinton believes that Israel’s right to exist in safety as a Jewish state, with defensible borders and an undivided Jerusalem as its capital, secure from violence and terrorism, must never be questioned,” the Democratic senator from New York and frontrunner for the presidential nomination said in her paper released Monday to JTA.

Those positions come just as Israel is considering a final-status offer to the Palestinians that would include sharing Jerusalem, giving up much of the West Bank and offering land swaps.

In the position paper, Clinton also said the United States should “do everything it can to deny nuclear weapons to Iran” and that “no option can be taken off the table.” The paper adds: “Hillary believes that the United States should use every tool in its arsenal — from imposing economic sanctions to siphoning off funds for Iran’s nuclear program to initiating a process of direct engagement with Iran.”
