Hillary: "Israel settlements illegitimate"

I was told by my liberal Jewish friends that, even if what I said was true, Obama was not pro Israel, at least we had Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton who were friends of Israel....yeah, with friends like these....

This in from ABC News, that will be shown on This Week's Sunday show:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Israeli settlements "illegitimate" shortly before the United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning continued Israeli settlement expansion as illegal. 
In an exclusive interview with "This Week" anchor Christiane Amanpour taped on Friday afternoon, Clinton said, "I think it is absolutely clear to say, number one, that it's been American policy for many years that settlements were illegitimate and it is the continuing goal and highest priority of the Obama administration to keep working toward a two-state solution with both Israelis and Palestinians."  
Oh, boy, if we are in the mood for torture, we get to see the two great minds Christiane Amanpour and Sec of State Hillary Clinton discuss the Middle East on Sunday. Couldn't they have someone on who is pro Israel to counter balance?
I want to know one other country in the world where it is supposedly illegitimate to build homes on their own land.   I am not a birther and think birthers are kooks for questioning the legitimacy of Obama. Can't we rightly say then that this administration is filled with kooks who question the legitimacy of Israel to build on their own land?
Since this Obama administration knows so much about legitimacy, I wish for one time they would say it is illegitimate for the Palestinians not to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.

As usual, big mike is right on ---- his last sentence sums it up as succinctly as possible--- by the way, I will chose to not induce vomit, and will NOT watch Hillary and Christine Ihateisraelpour talk on tv!!!

ABC will continue to lose voters with C Amanpour hosting the show. In Jake Tapper they had someone who was watchable. If they cared at all about actually having viewers they would bring him back immediately.
