No US Support for Unilateral Declaration of Palestinian Statehood

God is orchestrating all that is happening in this troubled region...according to HIS timetable, not Obama's...

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told NPR’s Charlie Rose on Wednesday that the Obama administration does not support a unilateral declaration of Palestinian statehood. Only a day earlier, speaking in Tunisia, Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud ‘Abbas reaffirmed plans to turn to the United Nations General Assembly by September for international support for statehood, claiming that such a move is consistent with President Obama’s own timetable. Clinton said the president will continue to pressure both Israel and the Palestinians, stressing that “negotiations are the only way, but more than that, they are an immediate need.” Clinton also called on Syrian President Bashar Al-Asad to end the violence against protestors demonstrating against his regime. She demanded an end to the “arbitrary arrests, detentions and torture of prisoners.” Clinton warned that Iran is seeking to benefit from the regional unrest and said that it is Iran itself that is the biggest threat in the region.
