Hagel: 'Settlements' Need Be Negotiated

In 2009, at the first J Street Conference, this is the sole mention of the supposedly most pressing issue in the Israel-Arab conflict as well as the rest of the region, if you believe that, by Chuck Hagel:-

Security guarantees will be a central part of any Israeli-Palestinian Peace Agreement, especially for Israel. This should be addressed at the front end of a new peace process negotiation framework. Israel will require this assurance as borders and settlements are negotiated.

Very non-comittal and low-key.

The issue of Jewish communities is to be negotiated.
