Whenever I point out the fact that Hillary Clinton was the person on any White House staff EVER to call for the establishment of a Palestinian state, or that famous hugging incident with Mrs Arafat my more liberal friends point out that the Junior Senator from NY has a spotless record on Israel since she was elected to the Senate.
Well of course she does, she is the senator from New-freaking-York. A major part of her voter base are MOTs, Members of the Tribe. She is an opportunist, if she becomes Secretary of State and No longer has to worry about the Jewish vote, she will undoubtedly revert to her old Anti-Israel views, much closer to the Obama/anti-Israel position.
In May 1998 Clinton became the first member of a presidential administration to call for a Palestinian State. She told a youth conference on Middle East peace in Switzerland, that she supports the eventual creation of an independent Palestinian state. Her spokesperson, Marsha Berry told reporters: “”These remarks are her own personal view.”
In November 1999, while on a purported State visit to the Middle East, she publicly appeared with Yasser Arafat’s wife Suha. Arafat made the slanderous allegation that “Our [Palestinian] people have been submitted to the daily and intensive use of poisonous gas by the Israeli forces, which has led to an increase in cancer cases among women and children.” Suha also accused Israel of contaminating much of the water sources used by Palestinians with “chemical materials” and poisoning Palestinian women and children with toxic gases. Mrs. Clinton sat by silently – and gave her a hug and a kiss when she finished speaking. Later, many hours after the event, and only after a media furor put her on the spot for what many view as a bit more than a mere political “boo boo”, Mrs. Clinton called on ALL SIDES to refrain from “inflammatory rhetoric and baseless accusations” – including Israel, whose leaders made no such accusations. Glossing over this remarkably repugnant affair, Mrs. Clinton has yet to specifically contradict and denounce the monstrous lies uttered by Yasser Arafat’s wife in her presence. Only years later did she make feeble attempt at an excuse, the translator screwed up.
Before I start to get nasty letters from those of the Democratic persuasion let me say this. I do not believe that Bill and Hilary Clinton are anti-Semitic. I do however, believe that they are opportunists who will do anything for a buck, to enhance their image or to get elected. And it is this do anything for power that scares me more than anything. Their lack of a political moral compass encourages them to work/make friends with every sleazeball and hater in the Arab world.
Take a look at the fact that Both Bill and Hillary make tons of bucks from their extensive involvement with Dubai. Why is that bad? Well besides being a leader in the movement to boycott Israel, Dubai Hong Kong” of the Arab world. and major commerce and shipping point for the “business-side” of terrorism. Bill and Hilary are major friends of Dubai, to the point where the Clinton Foundation have established Dubai Study departments in universities in the US and London. They worked hard at granting legitimacy to this Jew-hating, terrorist supporting nation.
According to San Francisco Examiner columnist P.J. Corkery, Clinton makes $10 million a year from Yucaipa a Dubai firm. Ron Berkle, the owner of Yucaipa companies is a major fund-raiser for Bill and Hillary.
And then there is the Clinton connection to the world’s biggest exporter of terrorism, Saudi Arabia, the Saudi Royal Family donated $10,000,000 to the Clinton Library.
According to a 1993 New York Times article, Prince Turki bin Feisal was a college classmate of Bill’s at Georgetown University and (at the time of the article’s writing) was the head of the Saudi Arabian intelligence service. While he was still governor of Arkansas, it looks like Bill Clinton cashed in on that relationship, “work[ing] hard to secure a multimillion-dollar Saudi donation to a Middle Eastern studies program at the University of Arkansas.” Due to the intervention of the Gulf War, the first installment of $3.5 million didn’t arrive until 1992, with another $20 million arriving after Bill Clinton’s first inauguration.
With Mrs Clinton’s Anti-Israel leanings and the fact that her husband gets 10 Million Dollars a year from the one of the Most anti-Israel countries in the world, how can we expect her to be a fair mediator in the middle-east? Which means she will fit right in with President-elect Obama.
