Clinton, Netanyahu huddle in Jerusalem

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Jerusalem for more than two hours to discuss the ongoing violence between Israel and Hamas.

"They discussed efforts to de-escalate the situation and bring about a sustainable outcome that protects Israel's security and improves the lives of civilians in Gaza," according to a state department spokeswoman.

Clinton is headed next to Ramallah, to meet with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, and then to Cairo, where she will meet with Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy.

    "hey, we do not like your country and we obviously own all the phone networks to keep the cheaper labor supply" – could you pay your phone bill now please? No? You will pay for your phone service or else we will text you again and again.

    Im not trying to be a jerk but i feel israel should just move to the usa. I mean really they should.we could give them a state and just let them rule over it, and call it 'new Israel'. sound crazy? well trying to live in peace surounded by millions of people that feel it is there God given right to wipe you off the face of the earth sounds pretty crazy to me. They will never make peace with Israel, because they dont want peace they want you dead. now you ready to talk about 'new Israel'? im all ears.
