Kasich Jabs Trump Over Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: 'We Cannot Be Neutral'

His remarks followed criticism of Trump by Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton.

“These tests were both a violation of the spirit of the nuclear deal and provocations that can no longer be ignored,” he said to rousing applause.

Kasich also referred to Jerusalem as Israel’s “eternal capital,” a phrase used to signal opposition to dividing the city as part of any deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

"The American friends of Israel are not fair-weather friends,” Kasich said. "They recognize the strategic hinge with Israel, and that America's and Israel's interests are tightly intertwined, despite our inevitable disagreements from time to time.”
