American philosopher James Henry Fetzer says the American people should think twice before supporting potential 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton.

In an interview with Press TV on Sunday, Fetzer strongly criticized the former secretary of state’s opinions.

“Anyone who has been thinking seriously about supporting Hillary Clinton for the presidency in 2016 ought to give second thought,” he said.

The editor of Veterans Today made the comments when asked about Clinton’s new book “Hard Choices.”

In her book, Clinton wrote the United States made a tactical mistake to put pressure on Israel to freeze its settlement activities on the Palestinian territories.

Clinton said Washington’s demand only hardened the stance of the now President of the Palestinian National Unity Government Mahmoud Abbas.

Abbas himself ultimately rejected the freeze because it failed to include the East Jerusalem (al-Quds).

She noted that when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced plans to resume settlement construction, it strained relations between Tel Aviv and Washington, leaving US President Barack Obama infuriated with Netanyahu.

“She is willing to support Israeli settlements on occupied Palestinian territories,” Fetzer said. “Is she willing to support Israel’s desire to attack Iran?”

Clinton is preparing for a presidential run in 2016 and in her new memoir she does not shy away from criticizing President Obama.
