ATLANTA — U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says President Barack Obama's support of a return to Israel's 1967 borders to make way for an adjacent Palestinian state is "unworkable."
Cantor, who is Jewish, says he is "very concerned" that "any discussion or talks between the parties has to start with the 1967 lines." He says the U.S. should "stand up for our ally in the war to stop the spread of radical Islam."
Cantor on Friday addressed The Atlanta Press Club as part of a two-day visit to Georgia, where he campaigned for GOP colleagues and visited businesses like Home Depot. Regarding the so-called "Arab Spring" movement in the Middle East, Cantor says the U.S. "should be about protecting and enhancing the institutions that do promote the values we stand for."
