Sen. John Edwards, named by Sen. John Kerry to run on the Democratic presidential ticket, has said Israel has a right to defend itself from terrorism. Edwards (D-N.C.), who got the nod from Kerry (D-Mass.) on Tuesday, told JTA in January that “as long as the Palestinian leadership fails to end terror, Israel has a right to take measures to defend itself. Such defensive measures are not the cause of terrorism, they are the response to terrorism.”
