Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, a US Senator from Massachusetts, told reporters on Saturday that she is open to withholding aid to Israel pending compliance with American demands to cease settlement activity.

“Right now, [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu says that he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements,” Warren told reporters. “That does not move us toward a two-state solution.
“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 a reporter attempted to follow up with a quick question to clarify, Warren was even quicker, loudly emphasizing: “Everything is on the table.”
Warren is not the only Democratic presidential contender who has criticized Israeli sovereignty in areas captured during the 1967 Six Day War, more than half a century ago. So far, at least three Democratic presidential contenders have expressed firm condemnation for Israel’s policies regarding Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria, the Golan Heights, the Palestinian Authority, Gaza, and its general self-defense.
The other top contender slamming Israel is Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent running for president on the Democratic ticket, who not only a virulent critic of Israel’s settlement policy, he also slams the Jewish State’s defense of its southern border with Gaza.
At least five locations along the southern Israeli border security fence are threatened weekly by thousands of Hamas-led rioters who are encouraged to attack the defending IDF soldiers and breach the barrier while covering for more skilled terrorists who then try to infiltrate the border to attack nearby Jewish communities.
