Middle East Crisis
Hillary Clinton Sent to Israel
Surprisingly, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton left Cambodia and flew to Jerusalem, Israel today to meet separately with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, and Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi Isa El-Ayyat in Cairo. The leaders are meeting to attempt to bring about a diplomatic solution to this crisis and a cease fire between Israel and the Palestinians.
I said surprisingly because I don’t believe Hillary has been involved in any Middle East talks before. According to Wiki, “Obama appointed several Special Envoys including a Special Envoy for Middle East peace (George Mitchell) and a Special Envoy to Afghanistan and Pakistan (Richard C. Holbrooke).” Holbrooke died unexpectedly in 2010 and Mitchell resigned in 2011. Marc Grossman succeeded Holbrook, and Mitchell was succeeded by David Hale. Perhaps these men are also involved, but there is no mention of them.
