6 DC heavyweights tell Kerry, Netanyahu in West Bank is like Putin in Crimea

"Israel's "expansive territorial agenda" in the West Bank is like Russia's in the Crimea, write a group of heavyweight former U.S. officials in Politico.
They say the U.S. is complicit in "morally unacceptable stances" by Netanyahu because it refuses to criticize Israel."
In a refreshing break from the usual noises inside the Beltway, here’s a piece by six heavyweights at Politico called “Stand Firm, John Kerry,” that likens Israel’s occupation of the West Bank to Russia’s occupation of Crimea. The piece contains one condemnation after another of Netanyahu and the Israelis for “morally unacceptable” positions and says that the U.S. is complicit in its failure to speak out.
The heavyweights are Zbigniew Brzezinski, Frank Carlucci, Carla Hills, Lee Hamilton, Thomas Pickering, and Henry Siegman (former national security adviser, Defense secretary, secretary of Housing and trade rep, congressman, ambassador, and Jewish leader).

  1. Netanyahu "like Putin" - Putin should sue for defamation.
