Hillary Clinton's Position on Israel

     Nadene Goldfoot                                             

    Huma Abedin, Hillary's right hand lady and Hillary Clinton.
    Hillary has said she's like a daughter to her.  Huma's parents have
    ties with the Muslim Brotherhood of which were in favor with Obama
    on his trip to Egypt after taking office.

      Hillary Diane Clinton nee Rodham,  born October 26, 1947 in Chicago, Illinois, where Obama lived after being in Hawaii,  was our Secretary of State who is now running for President.  She was the former First Lady of the USA when her husband, William "Bill" Jefferson Clinton, was President and lived in the White House from 1993 to 2001, when in his 2nd term, her husband was found to have disgraced himself with the Lewinsky Scandal.   Hillary, herself a lawyer,  at the time was an injured party in the affair.  Now they have a good marriage.  After this period, "from
     2001 to 2009, she served as a United States Senator from New York."    New York has the largest Jewish population, and she learned to tread carefully with Jewish or Israeli comments  in order garnish votes for Senator.  

    Regarding the Arab-Israeli conflict, Clinton has stated that she is "an emphatic, unwavering supporter of Israel's safety and security.

    On November 13, 2005, Clinton said that she supports the creation of the West Bank barrier, stating: "This is not against the Palestinian people. This is against the terrorists. The Palestinian people have to help to prevent terrorism. They have to change the attitudes about terrorism." She has also requested that Palestinian leaders "change all textbooks in all grades" from the current ones, which are "hate-filled, violent and radical." This was excellent!  I've been saying this over and over.  No other presidential hopeful has.  

    "On July 18, 2006, Clinton spoke at a pro-Israel rally in New York in front of the United Nations. She supported Israel's efforts in the 2006 Israel-Lebanon conflict: "We are here to show solidarity and support for Israel. We will stand with Israel, because Israel is standing for American values as well as Israeli ones."  Excellent!  

    As a senator and throughout her career, Clinton had supported a law that requires identifying Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.  In September 2011, as Secretary of State, she filed a brief with the US Supreme Court opposing "any American action, even symbolically, toward recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel" because of the influence it might have on the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.  Of course, this goes against Israel's needs and wishes.  She opposed Jerusalem being recognized as Israel's capital!  This went against what she had felt and said as a senator!  Again, what a politician says and what they do differ too often.  

    During an interview while the 2014 Israel–Gaza conflict was ongoing, Clinton said that Hamas had intentionally provoked Israel by firing rockets into that country. In regard to whether Israel's response against Hamas had been proportionate, she said, "I'm not a military planner, but Hamas puts its missiles – its rockets – in civilian areas. Part of it is that Gaza's pretty small and it's very densely populated. They put their command and control of Hamas military leaders in those civilian areas. Israel, I know, has sent warnings and tried to get people to move, but in any kind of conflict there are going to be civilian casualties, and we need to try to get to a cease-fire as soon as possible."

    All this, I must admit, is a surprise to me in that Hillary has stood up for Israel.  Has she been butting horns with Obama?  These facts don't seem to be matters like Obama's feelings about  Israel. He was demanding that Israel go back to the 67 lines that weren't even boundary lines which was an impossible death wish for Israel.  
    Having  been First Lady, she feels she has the experience to be President. 
     She graduated from Wellesley College in 1969.  Wellesley has been very anti-Semitic and even fired the staff of Hillel, a Jewish group on campus recently.  It was started in 1875 as a religious college " to 
    educate young women “for the glory of God and the service of the Lord Jesus Christ.”  It designed its admission policy to cultivate and perpetuate a white Anglo-Saxon Protestant elite.
    Then she graduated Yale Law School which she attended from 1969 to 1973.  Hillary  ran unsuccessfuly for President in 2008 against Obama.  Because of this, perhaps, he appointed her Secretary of State.  At the time, she did very badly in her campaign planning, as Mark Halperin showed in his book about the 2008 campaigns, Game Change.  
    Former Senator and Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has supported the US invasion of Iraq which turns out to have been a violation of the UN Charter.  She has shown hostility toward the International Criminal Court.  She supported international recognition of Morocco's illegal annexation of occupied Western Sahara and has attacked the UN of many of its key agencies.  In my view, these were all pretty good points.  I've been against the UN for many years because of how they have treated Israel.  I cheered when we went into Iraq after 9/11 which I'm sure many Americans did.  
    Hillary speaking in Jerusalem, 2012
Hillary has become known as one of the most right-wing Democrats when discussing the Israel-Palestine issues perhaps to Democrats, but not to people who support Israel.  She seems to be a reflection of Obama's biases against Israel.  We have been most disappointed with Obama's decisions,  that she has concurred with.   During one of Clinton's many visits to Qatar, Hillary befriended  the head of Qatar who houses an Egyptian religious leader,  Qaradawi.  This religious leader teaches Muslims all over the world through his TV program to kill Jews.  This has been most distressing to me.  Doesn't she realize what they back?  

An ex-US ambassador to Israel, Thomas Pickering,  asked her in 2011 to support Palestinian protests  which was found in an email to a senior advisor forwarding his son's anti-Zionist articles of which abound on the internet.  Is this what she is depending on in garnering information about Israel?  It's what I fear happening to many of our leaders in Washington DC.  Without an excellent background in not only current events and past historical facts about the Middle East, our leaders have nothing really to to rely on to make decisions on their own.  
Hillary is known to have broken rules. She has kept a private email address for receiving official government business while Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013.  Now, the State Department has looked at 40,000 pages  and has found this among others. 

By July 2015, it was known more through these emails of her connection to Qatar. "Altogether, on Tuesday the State Department released over 1,900 of Clinton’s emails (3,000 pages). Within this bulk of information, there are 19 emails that have to do with Clinton/ Mozah getting acquainted with each other. Sheikha Mozah was unable to meet with Clinton on suggested dates in June 2009 “due to prior commitments” and proposed to meet “immediately after Ramadan/Eid week of September 27, 2009.”

Another email found from 2010 was a suggestion from Anne-Marie Slaughter, Hillary's former director of policy planning,  that Hillary create a "Pledge for Palestine" campaign to give support to a Palestinian charity to encourage Palestinians to stay at the negotiating table.  Regardless of this, they didn't, but it does show a preference for the Palestinians over Israel.  Now, of course, the situation has become untenable, and Israel has given up trying due to current events happening in Israel that show the Palestinian unwillingness for becoming peaceful neighbors.

I have not found Hillary's statements about her position on Israel like I have with a few other candidates.  Wikipedia did the best job that I have found.  The question is, how much is for show to gain votes and how much is for real in how she really feels about Israel.  Her daughter has married a Jewish man and has children, now.  So has Trump's daughter. These 2 young mothers are friends.   How much will either candidate  view Israel in a more positive light because of this?  Will it shape their thinking at all about Israel?  One can not guess.  How much has Hillary been affected by Obama and Huma, who I have wary feeling that doesn't view Israel in a positive or fair light?  

It all depends on whether you believe in the Democratic party of today or the Republican.  It may just be that Hillary will be running against Trump.  Both say things about how they would handle Israel.  We have to look at their past history even more than what they say.  

Hillary is proving that her nice words pertaining to Israel are just that-words.  She now calls for an OPEN APPROACH TO HAMAS!  She wants to play nice-nice with the worst terrorists against Israel, and its playing into their hands.  Heaven help us if Hillary becomes president.  She'll be worse than Obama, and that's really what we don't need in these dire times.  Read this website I just posted by Daniel Greenfield.  

Update: 3/4/16:




    see what you think nadene.
    what a deadly mix.....

  2. Thanks, Andre, yes, Benghazi is still a big problem-at least it is with Republicans who care about what happened to our ambassador. “Weapons that are smuggled to Gaza come mostly from Sudan and recently from Libya during the security vacuum that followed the revolution in Egypt.” The Secretary of State does not openly wonder if our arms transfers intended for Syria are ending up with Hamas. She would know." Yes, Clinton should have known what was going on and had the skills of a detective in thinking ahead and knowing what to look into. There's a lot more to be concerned with than the ease of using just one email website. This part of the website you posted here is really bad. " The strong likelihood exists that the U.S. has funneled arms to Al-Qaeda as well as Hamas. They may have been used against Israel as well as against us in Benghazi." What I think is that Hillary was not skilled enough to do the difficult job of Secretary of State and therefore is not skilled enough to be President of the USA.

  3. i think she plays both ends against the middle for whatever gain politically she can make at the time. she sold land that she and bill owned to the russians that she had right here in my state that is land used for mining yellow cake (uranium) and russia sells it to iran. she has very filthy hands.

  4. That sounds like what she has done, all right. This land sale is really the pits! How awful! Thanks for sharing that, Andre.

  5. you can find articles as of last year about this nadene. the ranch property (i know these people) that was sold to uranium one is not far from where we live. i doubt john christiansen knew who he was selling to (but who knows?) but i know this: the clintons are evil. and i can't find a candidate i want to vote for really and will be shocked if we even have an election but if we do i believe it will be rigged anyway. i do not even want to vote quite frankly. the globalists plans are extremely advanced so will be a moot point since the globalists have taken sovereignty away replaced by a new world order. the wheels are coming off soon and the new normal is coming to a neighborhood near us all..
    i know i am pessimistic but it is that bad. has been happening in slow motion but happening nonetheless. we don't have anything of the freedom as a nation that we once had. if we still did would russia have american land and american yellow cake for plutonium to sell to iran?

    slowly but surely these timelines are all working out for bible prophecy.

  6. I'll have to look into this. I'm as frustrated as you are, Andre. We can't let Hillary win this race. Anyone on the Republican side is better than she is, as I see it. Now, just who to vote for? It's a toss -up, but remember, better than Hillary, so your vote will count. Right now we're just going to vote for a person to win against her in the big voting in November. It just may be Trump. But he's very competitive and likes to win, (about the only thing he can understand-certainly not foreign affairs) so he just might be able to take her on and win. He'll hire himself some tutors to be informed against issues, I bet. He's supposed to have an excellent memory. I don't think the other Republicans have a big chance against him for some reason or other. Rubio messed himself up on the wall and immigrants. Cruz messed up with Carson and that nasty move against him. Carson doesn't have a chance but we all love him. Kusich is the adult from Ohio but he doesn't stand up for Israel like Cruz or Rubio. Can you believe we started with 17 and are down to these few and it's still hard to make a choice?
    Don't give up. Keep hoping and thinking we have more days coming to live our lives out. You could be right, and then again-things can change. Remember, many people in the past thought the world was coming to an end and gave up their jobs, homes, etc, waiting for it. We can't do that. Remember this; the Jews during their slavery were in a bad way. The men didn't even want to "know" their wives and get them pregnant, but the women didn't give up-according to the version I've heard. They produced children and then had a future. So we'll live as if we have a future, too, and keep trying to be better ourselves every day. -I've reached my weight goal, same as when I was in high school. Now I'm cutting out foods with chemicals. I even bought organic bread today-70 calories per slice-and haven't had bread for a year except Sarah Lee diet bread of 45 calories per slice one slice a week for French Toast. Well, I feel better for it all and now have to work to NOT gain the weight back. Why? There is a future of some length, at least. Every day counts that we can view this world and appreciate what we have. On NCIS-I heard today the Persian tale of woe-that somebody was so poor he had no shoes. Then he realized he wasn't so bad off as the next man who walked by had no feet.


    more venom

  8. Wow! Andre. Guess where I'm going tonight. To an AIPAC meeting! I just sent this out to my contacts. Thanks! It's going to make these that are Democrats' heads spin-at least for a few minutes.

  9. It sure was! I had to drive about 15 miles to the meeting, but it was most interesting. It's nice to know there are people here that support Israel.

  10. and this goes along with the link i sent that you wanted to share at your aipac meeting that evening. none other than the son of sid blumenthal (the one with the "advice" ;) for hillary clinton --
