US Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman had a harsh message for American Jewish leaders on Monday.

Sherman warned them that if the new Israeli government does not demonstrate a strong commitment to the two-state solution, the US will have trouble assisting it in efforts to halt international initiatives at the United Nations.

Speaking at a conference of the Reform Movement in the United States, Sherman insisted the US government has "always had Israel's back in the international arena, even when it meant standing alone. This will continue to be the case."

But, she continued, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's actions prior to elections "raised questions about his commitment to the two-state solution."
Just observing.
