Okay, AIPAC, here’s another parsing of Obama’s comments to you regarding an “undivided” Jerusalem.
Here is what Obama said originally (in his speech to AIPAC)…
Let me be clear. Israel’s security is sacrosanct. It is non-negotiable. The Palestinians need a state that is contiguous and cohesive, and that allows them to prosper — but any agreement with the Palestinian people must preserve Israel’s identity as a Jewish state, with secure, recognized and defensible borders. Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided. (Source)
Here’s what he says now…
“The point we were simply making was, is that we don’t want barbed wire running through Jerusalem…” (Source: Newsmax)
Get that Israel…”you can have Jerusalem as your capital, but no barbed wire.”
IMO, that’s not as good an applause line as the original!
