DNC 2012: Israel, Jerusalem And The Platform

 

(NY DAILY NEWS)   There was a ruckus during the 2012 platform voting here at the convention in regard to Israel and specifically Jerusalem. More to follow, but here’s the official statement on that from DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz of Florida:

“The platform is being amended to maintain consistency with the personal views expressed by the President and in the Democratic Party platform in 2008. Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.

“It has been the policy of both Republican and Democratic administrations for decades that Jerusalem is a final status issue to be negotiated directly between the two parties, as part of discussions to achieve a two-state solution that secures the Jewish state and homeland. Our Party platform already expresses strong support for the peace process and makes clear the steps that any Palestinian partner must take to be a part of such a process  — recognizing Israel’s right to exist, rejecting violence, and adhering to existing agreements.”

Here’s the updated official language, which can be found on page 63 of the platform:

“Jerusalem is and will remain the capital of Israel. The parties have agreed that Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations. It should remain an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.”

  • Shithead Debbie is a LIAR! Oh, and like us sailors used to call someone when we couldn’t stand them anymore…we called them a PUKE and that’s what she is…a bloody PUKE!!!…

    Truth is, they left God & Jews out of their Platform to pacify the Muslims,the Atheists and Agnostics…
