It’s not a substitute for clarity on whatever it is Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised herabout his commitment to peace, but Laura Rozen reportsthat Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said in an interview today that the Jerusalem settlement expansion dust-up worked out fairly well for the peace process:
Ghattas: You took a risk in escalating the tone with Israel last week, I understand the relationship is solid but the Israelis could have said we never promised restraint on settlments in east Jerusalem,- is the risk paying off?
Clinton: I think we’re going to see the resumption of the negotiation track and that means that it is paying off because that’s our goal. Let’s get the parties into a discussion, let’s [get] the principle issues on the table and let’s begin to explore ways that we can resolve the differences.
She also poured cold water on the idea that the U.S. is trying to destabilize Netanyahu’s governing coalition.
