Hillary Clinton Arrives In Israel, Is Promptly Instagrammed

As talks of a cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian militants are reportedly underway.

It’s noteworthy that this photo of Secretary of State Clinton’s arrival was published on Instagram Tuesday before any other images hit the professional photo wires — another sign of social media enthusiasm in Israel during this conflict.

Speaking from Jerusalem, Secretary of State Clinton asserted the United States’ support for Israel’s mission while acknowledging the “[heart] break” of civilian deaths on both sides of Israel-Gaza border.

“There is no substitute for security and for a just and lasting peace,” she said. “I know today was a difficult day and I offer my deepest condolences to the loved ones of those who were lost and injured.”

She did not mention any plans for a cease-fire or truce.
