Clinton strong for Israel in foreign policy address


Hillary Clinton said she would forge ahead on trying to negotiate an Israeli-Palestinian deal should she become president, in a major foreign policy address Sunday at the Brookings Institution.

John Kerry, Clinton's predecessor as secretary of state, recently expressed disappointment that he wasn't able to forge a peaceful solution over the summer to the conflict. Clinton said were she to win the 2016 election, she would keep working with Israeli and Palestinian leaders towards a deal.

"I would as president begin to move forward again," Clinton said. "We don't want the light to go out completely because bad things can happen in the dark."
