What if Sarah Palin had flip-flopped on whether to raise the debt ceiling in the span of a few days?
What if Sarah Palin had offered the following answer when asked about her position on Afghanistan?
“The right approach is that the day I’m elected, I would start on that plan.”What if Sarah Palin had articulated such a lack of understanding of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?
In an interview with Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, Mr. Cain –widely considered to be a long-shot contender for the Republican Presidential nomination – appeared to be somewhat confused by the idea of the Palestinian “right of return” to Israeli territory.I don't expect Cain's campaign to make it past Iowa if this is an indication of what's to come. In fact, he may not even make it that far.
The “right of return” is among the many seemingly unbridgeable divides in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and a concept to which Israel is firmly opposed.
Just this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that the return of Palestinian refugees to Israel is “not going to happen. Everybody knows it’s not going to happen.”
CAIN: Right of return? Right of return?
WALLACE: The Palestinian right of return.
CAIN: That's something that should be negotiated.
When asked again about whether he believes in the Palestinian right of return, Cain seemed unclear about the Israeli position on the matter, as well as his own.
CAIN: Yes, but under - but not under - Palestinian conditions. Yes. They should have a right to come back if that is a decision that Israel wants to make…. I don't think they have a big problem with people returning.
