Cohen Clarifies

I earlier mentioned Rep. Steve Cohen who junketed Israel via J Street and his criticisms.

His interview is archived here and some outtakes:

"Jerusalem [wasn't mentioned in Netanyahu's Washington sppech before both houses of Congress and] should be on the table" "It has to be negotiated"

"That may not be my permission if I had the opportunity to listen to him"

Not discussing issues with us was "a mistake". A "diplomatic faux pas".

"J Street and AIPAC want the same thing". "They want the same thing with a different approach." "A strong and viable Israel."
