Eliot Engel Doesn’t Like Obama’s Israel Policy

He said they won’t like his answer.
“What concerns me, frankly, about both the statements of the secretary of state and the president is that once again Israel is being asked to make unilateral concessions in return for I don’t know what,” said Engel.
He said he hoped the strong words Obama and especially Clinton had used in reference to settlements were only motivated by an effort to strengthen Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas to show the Palestinian public that “the radical Hamas is not the way to go.
