Gen Petraeus Testifies Israel-Palestinian Conflict Is Major Source of US Problems in Middle East

Love|Peace In spite of Israeli media and pundits denying that the Israel|Palestinian conflict is a major source of anti-American hatred in the region, Gen. David Petraeus, the top US military commander in the Middle East, says otherwise, testifying before the Senate Armed Services Committee about the situation.

On last night’s PBS Newshour, the pro-Israeli position was that Israel|Palestine conflict is one of 20 problems for America in the region, not a primary one.

Overall, Petraeus testified that the tensions caused by the dispute between Israel and its neighbors does have an “enormous effect” on other regional issues. via Foreign Policy
