WCBS-TV (NY):Jewish Leaders Blast Clinton Over Israel Criticism
Zuckerman, Lawmakers, Local Jews Say Secretary Of State Not The Hillary Clinton They Used To KnowNO SURPRISE HERE:
In a swift about face from her views as New York's senator, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now hammering Israel over its treatment of Palestinians in Gaza.
As First Lady, Clinton raised eyebrows when she kissed Suha Arafat.
Since she was then seeking a Senate seat the resulting brouhaha caused her to "re-think" her positions.
"I'm a very strong supporter of Israel," Clinton said back in February 2000.
On Thursday, as Secretary of State she had yet another about face in the form of angry messages demanding Israel speed up aid to Gaza. Jewish leaders are furious.
"I am very surprised, frankly, at this statement from the United States government and from the secretary of state," said Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News and member of the NYC Jewish Community Relations Council.
"I liked her a lot more as a senator from New York," Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, said. "Now, I wonder as I used to wonder who the real Hillary Clinton is."
Clinton's decision to hammer Israel comes as the Clintons and President Barack Obama are planning to give the Palestinians $900 million toward the rebuilding of Gaza in the wake of the Israeli offensive that was sparked by Hamas rocket fire.
- THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE PREDICTED.
- JEWS WHO VOTED FOR OBAMA WERE DUPED.
- JEWS WHO LIKE HILLARY WERE DUPED, TOO:
- HILLARY CLINTON IS A SELF-SERVING EGOMANIAC WHO DIDN'T HAVE THE MORAL COURAGE TO DUMP HER PHILANERING HUBBY, WHO BASICALLY FELT THAT SHE'D RATHER BE A CHEATED-ON FIRST LADY AND A FIGURE-HEAD SECRETARY OF STATE THAN A PERSON OF HIGH CHARACTER.
