U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Israeli officials will discuss on Monday Egypt's political upheaval, Iran's nuclear program and the stymied Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
Making her first trip to Israel in 22 months, and only her fourth visit as secretary of state, Clinton's talks will focus first and foremost on the political transition in Egypt, where the Islamist President Mohamed Mursi took office two weeks ago.
The downfall of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak last year has raised questions among Israelis about whether Egypt, the first Arab nation to have made peace with Israel, will adhere to that treaty under his Islamist successor.
Clinton anticipates a discussion about the Arab Spring, which not only brought about Mubarak's downfall in Egypt but also sparked what has become a virtual civil war in Syria, leading to instability on two of Israel's borders.
The U.S. official said Clinton also expected to have lengthy talks with Israeli officials about the Iranian nuclear program.

Probably not any time soon, as he and his coterie of advisers (who include MANY members/supporters of the Moose-limb Bros) are too busy trying to undermine our Israeli/Jewish friends and the ONLY democratic country in the ME, while propping up and supporting every upheaval of several countries by the Islamic Jihadists.
“The fall of Mubarak” described without attribution. A more accurate representation would be that Mubarak was brought down by the US.
Monica Monica Go Home Hillary
Apparently the Israelis find more value in eating their tomatoes than wasting them by throwing them at a worthless POS.
I wonder what Huma’s thoughts are.
I hope that Israel tells Hillary they are waiting for the new non-Sufa Arafat-kissing Secretary of State to visit about six months from now.
Greetings with rotten tomatos and chants of MONICA !!!!
I call that a successful visit . . .
The neo-commie, muslin fascist can do these things because he already has the Jewish vote locked up.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
It should be a focus, but I'm not sure Israel can do much about Egypt, at this point in time.

Sure. We got plenty of donkey turds, which aren’t nearly as nutritious or hard to make as a good tomato. In fact, we have an inexhaustible supply of donkey, dog and cat turds, not to mention sheep and goats. As for bull-s@#*, Hillary brought her own.
