O’Malley: Don’t Try to Influence Israel’s Elections

Politicians in the United States and Israel should keep out of each other’s business during election campaigns, according to former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley.

“I think leaders in both of our countries would be well advised not to get into the electoral politics of the other nation,” the potential Democratic presidential candidate said Thursday in an interview with The Huffington Post. “As close as we are, we would both be well advised to stay out of the internal politics.”

O’Malley pointed out that meddling with each other’s elections only intensifies the rocky relations between the two countries. He also argued that U.S. policy in the Middle East should continue to include a two-state solution for Israel and Palestine.

“I think the relationship between the United States and Israel is strong, will remain strong and must be strong for our own security,” the ex-governor said. “But also, we have to continue to wage peace, and in this context, waging peace means pushing for a two-state solution.”

HuffPost reported that most congressional Democrats agree with O’Malley’s comments. However, the news site noted, he may have upset some party leaders by suggesting the Obama administration was out of line in criticizing Netanyahu during his recent re-election campaign.
