Washington, ALRAY - Democratic U.S. presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren, said on Sunday that she is open-minded as to making the US aid to Israel based on the acceptance of the government to halt its illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.
When asked about her position concerning Israeli illegal settlements and US aid to Israel, Warren asserted that the construction of the Israeli illegal settlements is against the US official policy.
"Right now, Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements, but that does not move us in the direction of a two-state solution," Warren added.
She pointed out that the official policy of the United States of America is to support a two-state solution, saying “if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table.”
Warren’s fellow democratic presidential candidates, including Bernie Sanders, also condemned Israel’s construction of settlements in the occupied West Bank and its policy towards Palestinians.
It is the right of all people to protest for a better future without a violent response," Sanders tweeted last year.
“Meanwhile, the situation in Gaza remains a humanitarian disaster. The US must play a more positive role in ending the Gaza blockade and helping Palestinians and Israelis build a future that works for all," Sanders added.
