The United States slammed Monday Israel’s decision to withhold Palestinian Authority funds saying "any decision following the Hamas-Fatah agreement is premature.”

U.S. State Department deputy spokesman Mark Toner admitted that the Israelis “have their concerns,” but stressed that that the U.S. government's position is that “we believe that we need to wait and see.

Hillery - Butt out!

Let Isreal decide what’s best for them.

If some irate Pali’s are going to die, they’re going to die, and the US shouldn’t be concerned about who attacked Isreal.

Move along, nothing to see here!

“Mark Toner admitted that the Israelis “have their concerns,”

Yeah, like 6 1/2 to 7 million Jewish lives, and Israel’s survival, for starters.......
