Clinton’s $500K Advice: Learn to Live with Palestinian State

By: JTA

There is no alternative to a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, Bill Clinton said at an event to honor Israeli President Shimon Peres.

Clinton was speaking Monday night at the Peres Academic Center in Rehovot in honor of Peres’ 90th birthday.

“Your neighbors are still your neighbors,” the former U.S. president said of the Palestinians. “One way or the other, you’re going to share your future with them.

Saying he is like President Peres, Clinton said, ” I don’t see any alternative to a Palestinian state.” He added, “Paint a picture in your mind of the future you want to have and take the logical steps to achieve it.”

Clinton said he would give his $500,000 speakers’ fee to his charitable foundation. Earlier this month, the Israeli Jewish National Fund pulled out of the event following a public outcry and media scrutiny over the speakers’ fee; center donors covered the fee.

Clinton also said that “the saddest day of my presidency was the day Prime Minister (Yitzhak) Rabin lost his life” and that “never a week goes by, even now, that I don’t think of him and that I don’t think of the burdens Shimon took on in the wake of that day.”

  1. Bear Klein says:

    Wasted Money. He also wanted Israel to give up Golan. He does not realize Israel has no peace partner. Land for peace does not work. It is land for rockets and fighting the next war in an inferior position geographically. People like Clinton do not help because 2 State Solution is Dead but yet buried!

  2. Clinton is addressing the wrong crowd. It's the Arabs that need to learn to live with the Jews…

  3. Alan Kardon says:

    This is what we needed to spend $500,000 on? What a waste of money.

  4. Clinton shut up, you don't know about Israel's history, I whote explaining unstead 2 which states which is dead tomake a federation like Switzerland, I was wrong that Helvetia was on the oldest federation, for modern times yes, but the Iraelites with his 12 tribes lived 12th to 6th BCE under monarchical tribes, they were a federetion, each was looking each tribe decisions under the monarchy opinion,

  5. I heard Clinton's speech about Israel's surviving, what I whrote before, he doesn't now about history, we jewish survived the Persian, the Egyptians, the Greegs, the Romans, Inquisition, Otoman, Nazi Germany, etc:, where are all?, I think the people of the world are worry of their surviving, we have not to worry.
