Israeli military tactics haven’t worked against the Palestinians and shouldn’t be used in Iraq, Sen. Hillary Clinton said. The U.S. military has blockaded troublesome villages with barbed wire fence and has demolished buildings suspected to be sniper nests. Reports have said that Israeli advisers were involved in training U.S. troops in such tactics, though the Pentagon will not confirm that.

More Israelis and Palestinians oppose the unofficial “Geneva accord” peace proposal than support it, a new poll says. Thirty-four percent of Israelis and 19 percent of Palestinians support the Geneva proposal, and 43 percent of Israelis and 44 percent of Palestinians oppose the plan, according to the poll, carried out by the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research and Hebrew University’s Truman Institute.
