the Israelification of the Clintons


In her recent debate in Austin, Texas two weeks ago, Hillary Clinton suggested that not supporting Israel is a form on anti-Semitism.
We've heard that before from different important officials in the US.
It's a known fact that all American presidents have supported Israel and its right to exist. Not doing so would lead to the demise of the future of any US politician.
But I've never heard before (and correct me if I'm wrong) and American president stating that criticizing Israel is a form of racism.
That comes in addition to her other positions in support of Israel (which, except for what I've mentioned above, are not much different than Obama's , Mccain's or Huckabbee's)
Here's she's condemning rocket attacks without condemning Israelis, then calling for the release of the kidnapped Israeli soldiers without mentioning the Palestinian prisoners in Israel's prisons.
then she expresses her disappointment because the Palestinian textbooks do not contain any pro-Israeli material (wonder why, maybe because half of the Palestinians students had some family being killed or having their legs amputated by Israeli forces).
Again, she calls for international help from the Red Cross for the kidnapped Israeli soldiers, ignoring the attacks Israel had on ambulances carrying wounded Palestinian civilians to hospitals.
It's great to have a woman become a president, but a total bitch? not sure.

The Israeli Lobby has so much more control and might in the US than all the pro Palestinian, Arab and Muslims combined by few hundred folds. It would be political suicide for any candidate to even think of criticizing Israel. As long as this is the reality on the ground. It will continue to be like this.

The only people who see this as injustice are the people who are suffering from it!

Just before I read the last line the same word "bitch bitch bitch" was going through my mind...

My favorite piece of shit is the pro-Israeli material in Palestinians textbooks. Perhaps if the Israelis haven't bombed and raided so many schools, or at least didn't preach the hatred of Arabs in their own schools, perhaps someone somewhere would've thought of considering the possibility of having pro-Israeli material in Palestinian textbooks.

In the last debate with Obama she was trying really hard to pick a fight over who loves Israel the most.
