This is to be expected. Senator Warren would never consider withholding aid to the Palestinian Authority, to curb Palestinian terrorism or Palestinian incitement, or Palestinian Jew-hatred. Instead, she would give the Palestinian Authority a blank check. That is because her voters support the terrorist organization, against America’s strongest ally Israel.
Many in the United States (including many in the Trump administration) are concerned about Israel’s flourishing relationship with China. As long as President Trump is in office, Israel will always defer to the United States. However, if Israel-haters such as Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders are elected President, Israel will not say no to China at the behest of the United States.
Warren says withholding aid to Israel is ‘on the table’ to curb settlements
Top Democratic presidential contender says Jerusalem’s policies are moving it away from a two-state solution
By TOI, October 21, 2019:
Leading Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren on Sunday indicated the US could withhold aid to Israel to force it to halt construction in settlements.
Asked during a political event in Iowa on her position on making aid conditional on stopping settlement expansion, the Massachusetts senator said “everything is on the table.”
The US provides Israel with some $3.8 billion in military assistance annually.
“Right now, [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu says he is going to take Israel in a direction of increasing settlements. That does not move us toward a two-state solution,” Warren said.
“It is the official policy of the United States of America to support a two-state solution, and if Israel is moving in the opposite direction, then everything is on the table,” she said, then repeated: “Everything is on the table.”

Warren is currently neck and neck with former vice president Joe Biden in polls ahead of the Democratic primaries, and has recently led in some surveys. She is seen as a more liberal, left-leaning candidate than Biden on many issues.
In June Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, ranked third in the race, said he would “absolutely” consider dangling cuts to American aid to Israel in order to pressure Jerusalem.
