K-Lo, it’s been jarring for a long time. This is from Haaretz in 2007, reporting on some of Condi’s typical blather on the subject:
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Wednesday that Palestinians deserve to live under better conditions than they are subjected to and be “free of the humiliation of occupation” in a state of their own.
“I promise you my personal commitment to that goal,” Rice said at a dinner marking the third anniversary of the American Task Force on Palestine.
“There could be no greater legacy for America,” Rice told the group, which describes itself as nonpartisan and supportive of a Palestinian state living side by side with Israel. “The Palestinian people deserve a better life … free of the humiliation of occupation,” she said.
