Bill Clinton in February 2013. Photo: U.S. Department of Labor. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton visited the Western Wall on Tuesday, calling the visit “an amazing visit to a place that open ones eyes,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

Clinton also toured the Western Wall tunnels and expressed admiration for Jerusalem’s long history.

“I really love this place,” Clinton said, the Jerusalem Post reported. “Here we see life in Jerusalem at different times. Here there are layers of different periods, one on top of the other, each one representing a world of life.”

But Clinton, who was in Israel for the annual Presidential Conference, also had some stern messages for the Jewish state. On Monday evening, during a speech at Israeli President Shimon Peres’s 90th birthday celebration, Clinton said he believes Israel has no alternative to a two-state solution if it wants to maintain its democratic character.

“Is it really okay with you if Israel has a majority of its people living within your territory who are not now, and never will be, allowed to vote?” Clinton rhetorically asked, the Associated Press reported.

    Piece in Israel will be a wonderful thing, but anyone that has studied the history of Israel and understands the G-D of Israel will no that war involving all thoughs that trouble themselves with her will be the eventuale outcome, The world is about to be taught a lesson when the G-d of Israel will manifest his glory and show once and for all that he is the supprime Ruler of this orb.
    Mr Clinton would do himself and America a great service by acknowledging that Israel has been gathered there by their G-d and piece will come when he finishes the job he started thousands of years ago.
    Try as he may for piece, Mr Clinton soon learn that he along with many others are being used to bring about G-d’s will, with not quite the out come the so called world powers would be hoping for.
    The world is in a hurry to change what God said would be done, Good Luck with that you are going to need it.

    Clinton is a visionary leader, few can match his calibre, he has said the right thing at the right time. Israel has to wake up from its arrogance and settle this forever for the good of both the people. Netanyahu does not have the where with all to do make this agreement he is a small leader, you need people of the stature of Mr. Shimon Peres to do such things.
