Example: Hillary Clinton had the chutzpah to attack Donald Trump during her AIPAC speech for his desire to remain neutral between Israel and their Muslim-terror supporting neighbors.
As we’re witnessing from today’s tragic terror attacks in Brussels, what goes on in Israel is important for the rest of the world because what starts with Israel never ends with Israel. Suicide bombings were originally used by the Palestinians against the Israelis but have now become a universal tool of all Islamic terrorists against their victims.
I am no fan of Trump’s position on Israel. His willingness to subscribe to the entire notion of negotiating to create an Arab Palestinian state countermands his messaging about being tough on Islamic terror and is the very embodiment of the establishment mentality he claims to oppose. But for Hillary Clinton to attack Trump’s position on Israel as too weak is the equivalent of her husband delivering a lecture on abstinence. If Trump plans to remain neutral, Hillary will downright side with the Palestinian terrorists.
Yesterday, Hillary Clinton delivered the following remarks to those assembled at the annual AIPAC convention:
America can’t ever be neutral when it comes to Israel’s security or survival. We can’t be neutral when rockets rain down on residential neighborhoods, when civilians are stabbed in the street, when suicide bombers target the innocent. Some things aren’t negotiable. And anyone who doesn’t understand that has no business being our president.
Clinton then had the nerve to say the following, much like an arsonist coming to the scene of the fire to lament the threat of Iran and global anti-Semitism, all products of her policies as Secretary of State:
As we gather here, three evolving threats — Iran’s continued aggression, a rising tide of extremism across a wide arc of instability, and the growing effort to de-legitimize Israel on the world stage — are converging to make the U.S.-Israel alliance more indispensable than ever.
To begin with, it says something about AIPAC that her speech could be warmly received after she served as the most Anti-Israel Secretary of State in history. As I’ve noted before, AIPAC has become nothing but a protection racket for the Democrat Party.
However, the notion that Clinton is pro-Israel is scandalous. As early as 1998, when she was First Lady, Hillary praised “the leadership of Chairman [Yasser] Arafat,” one of the biggest terrorists of the 20th century. Consider the following:
Thus, as bad as Trump is on Israel, it’s hard for Clinton to throw stones without destroying her glass house. Then again, Trump himself praised Hillary as a good negotiator with Iran. I guess it’s no different from Trump taking both sides of the Iran deal during his own AIPAC speech yesterday – both criticizing the Iran deal and saying that he’ll keep most of it in place.
Don’t the voters deserve a real choice, not a phony fight between two individuals who largely agree on these critically important foreign policy issues?
