Israel prepares next US President: Hillary
Hillary Clinton to visit Israel: Senator Hillary Clinton will travel to Israel next week and meet with Prime Minister Ariel Sharon to discuss security issues, her office said Wednesday. The trip is her second to the country since becoming a senator. Her husband, former president Bill Clinton, is scheduled to visit next week as well, and will be a featured speaker at a mass rally marking the 10th anniversary of the assassination of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. Senator Clinton, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, is traveling as part of the U.S. delegation to a conference beginning November 11 to discuss relations between the two countries. She also plans to tour a portion of the security fence near Jerusalem. The fence has been the focus of international debate, and Clinton has supported Israel's right to construct it.
