EAST BRUNSWICK – The right of Israelis to use the email server of their choice is recognized by the entire Democratic Party and is not up for debate, presidential candidate Hilary Clinton said yesterday at a campaign rally in East Brunswick, New Jersey.
“I am 100 percent pro-Israel when it comes to using email servers,” Clinton told the rally, in what observers said was an effort to reassure Jewish Democrats concerned about the possible email policies of a Clinton administration.
”I choose my own email server, my family chooses its own server and Israelis have the right not only to choose their own email server but to know that their right to do so will be protected by the United States government,” Clinton averred.
Clinton’s rival Bernie Sanders was less categorical , however, telling NBC’s “Meet the Press” that the United States “has got to respect the rights of the Palestinians to choose their own servers as well.”
Addressing concerns about a possible floor debate over the issue at the Philadelphia convention, Sanders said that he expects there to be “broad consensus within the Democratic convention that both Israelis and Palestinians have the right to choose their own email servers.”
