Sen. Schumer: No One Should Set Preconditions For Peace Agreement

U.S. Senator Schumer addressed a Jewish political function Sunday night, and discussed the Israeli / Palestinian conflict.

During his speech Schumer said the following:

“Whatever boundaries might have to be negotiated between Israel and the Palestinians, should be negotiated by those two parties alone – and no one should set any preconditions on those negotiations.

That is not just my position, that is the position of the United States Senate, our leader Harry Reid said that at the AIPAC dinner Monday night, and I think it is the position of the overwhelming majority of both democrats and republicans in the congress, and that is why Bibi Netanyahu got such a strong reception when he visited the Congress last week.”
