Is Hillary a True Friend of Israel?

Nadene Goldfoot                                                 
Huma Abedin, who works for Hillary Clinton in White House. and Hillary Clinton.
Huma was U.S. Secretary of State Clinton's Deputy Chief of Staff at the State Department
Huma's parents are avid Muslim Brotherhood members.  She's like
a daughter to Hillary. At age 2, Huma's Indian father and Pakistani mother moved to 
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, where she was raised and lived until returning to the United States for college. On June 13, 2012, five members of Congress alleged that Abedin had "immediate family connections to foreign extremist organizations" which they said were "potentially disqualifying conditions for obtaining a security clearance" and questioned why Abedin had not been "disqualified for a security clearance.  With Obama as president and Hillary as a friend, "the claims in the letter were generally rejected, and were labeled by some as conspiracy theories."  
Oh Hillary!  I just finished printing out her 8 page speech to AIPAC that she gave on March 21st and thought, she knows all of Israel's problems.
 She's so aware and has been very involved in our dire situations, but she was on the other side!  She had joined Obama's team and did his bidding, which was so different from what she has written as her speech.  She quoted Elie Wiesel at the end of her speech when he was given the Nobel Peace Prize and said, "Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim.  Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented."  Did the Obama administration heed his words in their dealings with Syria?  Didn't  the Obama Administration keep quiet in chiding the Palestinians about attacking Israel, or didn't they instead blame Israel but never the Palestinians?  Yes, they did speak out at the UN against the countries coming down on Israel, but I haven't heard of anything they've done to let Hamas or even Fatah know that they can't keep attacking Israel and still find any favor with the USA.
She admitted right away that "we may not have always agreed on every detail, " and indeed, the details have been quite large, as a matter of fact, like Iran, which she brings up later.  When Netanyahu came to speak to Congress on Tuesday, March 3, 2015,  about  why he was  against President Obama’s plan for a possible nuclear deal with Iran,  who attended?  Almost none of the Democrats. Here are the Senators who gave notice early that they wouldn't attend.  Notice that Bernie Sanders' name is in this list.  All are Democrats plus Bernie, the Independent.
  1. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.)
  2. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)
  3. Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.)
  4. Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii)
  5. Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)
  6. Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.)
  7. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.)
  8. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.)
    In total, 48 members of the House of Representatives and eight Senators skipped the Israeli leader's speech. Did Hillary?  This subject was a matter of LIFE and DEATH for Israel.  She admits very well that she knows about all of Iran's deadly accomplishments towards this Jewish country.   It takes a lot of chutzpa to think that AIPAC members are going to push all the negativity aside to vote for her after playing ball with the opposing team.                                              

 "Independent Senator Bernie Sanders (Vt.) joined 56 Democratic lawmakers in the boycott, which was seen by many as snub to the powerful Jewish-American lobby group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).  Also not in attendance were President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. The president said he could not be present because of the speech's proximity to the Israeli election, while Biden had a scheduling conflict. That was the election Obama had been interfering with.  

She spoke about the huge movement of BDS, boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel used in trying to manipulate Israel to do the movement's bidding.  She says many young people in the audience are on the front lines of the battle to oppose it, and in that she is right.  She agreed that it is maligning, isolating and undermining Israel and the Jewish people.  Does she realize that the most popular Protestant churches are in the front line of leading this international movement?  Did she offer any concrete help in combatting it?  She said she has been sounding the alarm and had written a letter last year to Jewish organizations that we have to unite to fight against it.  They've been trying to do that, Hillary.  It would be nice if you wrote a letter to the churches promoting it.   She  told Jewish college students at the meeting to stay strong and keep speaking out.  She told them not to let anyone silence you, bully you or try to shut down debate.  That's why they are AIPAC members, Hillary.  They already have heard that from the choir.

At times, she seemed to be lecturing to the choir.  Instead, her words should have been aimed at the Palestinians.  Why tell AIPAC members, and these attending this meeting are the very active ones, to not harm others, etc.  She said to AIPAC members, who spend their free time trying to educate others about what is happening to Israel, that "all of us must condemn actions that set back the cause of peace." That's what AIPAC knows is happening to Israelis.  They know about what their enemies are doing.  She said that "terrorism should never  be encouraged or celebrated."  Really!  Why tell AIPAC members this?  This is what her friend, Arafat stood for and encouraged.  This is what Israelis are fighting against!  She said that "children should not be taught to hate in schools as that poisons the future."   Hillary is showing AIPAC that she is aware of what Israel is up against, something that this audience knows about full well, but they would like to know how she sees the USA's part in combating such acts.  Pushing for a 2 state solution when this is going on is madness.  Can she give the Palestinians an incentive for peaceful behavior other than backing them all the time and expecting Israel to give them more and more land?  Hillary; from promises Israel was promised the Promised Land.  That promise only lasted a short while before Great Britain turned around and gave 80% of that land to King Abdullah.  (update) 

She spoke of 3 choices that we have, and the 1st one was to take the Israel-USA relationship to the NEXT LEVEL.  Trump has spoken of the art of the deal.  Perhaps she has read his book, for she is offering Israel a 10 year deal of a "defense memorandum of understanding to meet Israel's security needs far into the future." She is not afraid that this will send a clear message to Israel's enemies in that the USA and Israel stand together, united.  If this is really believed by her, then why won't she go for moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem and send the same strong message by doing it?

Getting to that NEXT LEVEL, according to her speech, was to make sure she became president-a president with a deep personal commitment to Israel's future as a secure Democratic Jewish state.  We hear the knocking and warnings of what Trump would be like as a president with dire consequences.  We get the warning, that to have security for Israel, America needs to remain a respected global leader, committed to defending and advancing the international order.  Hillary, like it has been these past 8 years?  Frankly, this is what has been missing!  Even she said a paragraph down that it's not good enough to trust and verify, and that our approach must be to distrust and verify.  Well, with your past shenanigans with your own ambassador's life being taken in a terrorist attack, there has been a lot of distrust.  Couple that with not even following your own USA rules about emails, and the mess that has entailed makes me want a lot of verification because that distrust has built up.  The question is, can we trust you and why?
Qaradawi of Qatar
Like reading about your good relations with Qatar, whose friend in good standing is  Al-Qaradawi of Egypt.  Qaradawi was kicked out of Egypt for being a trouble-maker and he lives in Qatar.  He's a Muslim religious leader who goads his followers to kill Jews.  He would do it himself, but he'd have a hard time choking one of us as he's in a wheelchair.  However, he has said that he would do it.  On February 15, 2010, Hillary Rodham Clinton participated in an official Al-Jazeera town hall interview at the Carnegie Mellon U branch in Qatar's Education City.  Al-Jazeera in Arabic advocates killing Jews on Qaradawi's program.  She said she's been followng the Qatar Foundation.  The Al-Qaradawi Centre for Research in Moderate Thought is a short walk away from Education City.  He happens to be barred from entering the USA and is documented as having called for the destruction of America and for the annihilation of the Jews; another Hitler.  Education City's support of Sheikh Al-Qaradawi means they support what he teaches.  This is all documented by MEMRI-(Sheikh Al-Qaradawi & Qatar's Education City Hosting American University Branches.)  As Secretary of State, didn't you realize that this man is a terrorist leader, as bad as ISIS?
Iron Dome shooting down a missile 
That was one promise-a memorandum.  She also said that the USA should provide Israel with the most sophisticated defense technology to deter and stop any threats, like the Arrow 3 and David's Sling, better tunnel detections, technology to prevent armed smuggling, kidnapping and terrorist attacks.  Who does she think will actually come up with these items?  No doubt our creative Israelis will, who continue to share with the USA all they have to protect themselves.  She must have forgotten that Israel has already created the IRON DOME.  It was developed by Haifa-based Rafael SPYDER, a company already known for its anti-aircraft systems.  She said she wanted to tighten the links between Silicon Valley and Israeli tech companies and entrepreneurs.  We already have many Israelis working in Portland in this field.  Israel spent a lot of money providing themselves with 3 of the Iron Domes.  "The $200 million offered by the Obama White House in 2010 helped build a fourth installment."  Because of probably mostly Republican Senators and House members, the USA has been helping Israel in this way, thank goodness.  In March of this year Israel announced the Iron Dome had successfully intercepted 90 percent of incoming Gaza missiles that would have landed in populated Israeli areas.  

One of the  first things Hillary will do as President is to invite the Israeli Prime Minister to visit the White House.  Does she figure Netanyahu won't be in this chair by January?  Why didn't she use his name?  He's been there many a time, Hillary, but not with you as Prez.  You can say that the relationship between Obama and Netanyahu is quite strained these days.  Obama was actively involved in the USA setting up an office in Tel Aviv to vote for Netanyahu's opposing party in his last election.  Since when would we ever put up with foreign interference in our political affairs so boldly?  That was crass!  
Halperin and Heilemann's book that tells how Hillary
operated when running in 2008 for the presidency.  

American Evita, published in 2004.

A book by Christopher Anderson called American Evita is about Hillary.
In it, on pages 49-50, Anderson cites  a 1973 incident that happened before Bill and Hillary were married on October 11, 1975.   Bill had driven over to a friend's house during a trip to his home state of Arkansas with Hillary to meet a politically well-connected friend.  They noticed as they came close to  the house that a menorah was on the door.  Bill's friend came to the door and when questioned about it, told Bill that his father was half-Jewish (by DNA-I suppose-since one either is or isn't following Judaism).  It was his father who hammered the menorah to the door to be proud that they were part Jewish.  The son couldn't say no.  However, Hillary wouldn't get out of the car to meet him.  Bill had to apologize and told his friend that she's really tight with the people of the PLO in New York.  They are her friends and she doesn't feel right about the menorah.

This is a case of anti-Semitism by Hillary, but it doesn't add up.  Jews don't have menorahs on their door.  They have a small mezzuzah on the side of the door with the 10 Commandments in the case.  To spot it from a car means they were looking for it, no doubt.  A mezzuzah is small.   Why should they worry about a chatchka from the car of a friend's house?  Who ever heard of a menorah on a door, anyway?  Not even in Israel did I see such a door decoration.  Somebody is meshuganah!
Arafat at UN General Assembly  on November 13, 1974
 packing a pistol and called on the world community to decide between
an "olive branch or a freedom fighter's gun."
At a time when elements of the American Left embraced the Palestinian cause and condemned Israel, Hillary was telling friends that she was “sympathetic” to the terrorist organization and admired its flamboyant leader, Yasser Arafat. When Arafat made his famous appearance before the UN General Assembly in November 1974 wearing his revolutionary uniform and his holster on his hip, Bill “was outraged like everybody else,” said a Yale Law School classmate. But not Hillary, who tried to convince Bill that Arafat was a “freedom fighter” trying to free his people from their Israeli “oppressors.”
When a first lady in May 1998, "
Ms Clinton became the first member of any presidential administration ever to call for a Palestinian State.  With Arafat never agreeing to anything, one wonders whose idea it was?  

Hillary spoke about Iran and their threats to Israel to wipe them out.  She said that Iranian provocations, like the recent ballistic missile tests, are also unacceptable and should be answered firmly and quickly including more sanctions.  We know that, Hillary, and are not seeing it.  What has Obama done about it?  Are you nudging him properly if you believe this?  His presidency has been a "do nothing" and it will blow over thing.  He seems to not believe in "mixing in."  She says that" if elected, the leaders of Iran will have no doubt that if we see any indication that they are violating their commitment not to seek, develop or acquire nuclear weapons, the USA will act to stop it and that we will do so with force if necessary." We heard this from Obama, but haven't seen it.  It's turned out to be empty promises, just like Iran's promise to obey them.  

By addressing AIPAC,  Hillary didn't miss a trick in getting jabs in at Trump.  Israel will not benefit from her offers if he gets in,  was some of the message currently  on her mind and lips.

  1. she has a real credibility problem. she speaks with forked-tongue and has very dirty hands.
    she screeches as she 'preaches' and i hope and pray that people are getting wise to her. i saw her coming long time ago and who she buddies up to has always ratted on her......so she hasn't changed, she's worse than ever in her alinsky betrayals of her own fellow americans, why even think she would stop hating israel as well, like old evil jezebel did?

    she throws anyone under the bus that gets in her way on the way to power.

  2. Right you are. It's hard to get Democrats wise to her. People tend to believe the best of the team they have picked. They refuse to look at their faults. I agree. She must still harbor the same old feelings she had about Jews that are now transferred to Israelis as well, and she most likely joins Obama in hating Netanyahu. What we have today is the Brussels attack by ISIS terrorists. Who will we select for our next president?
