Skip to comments.Clinton, in a Sharp Turnaround Warns Against Even Symbolically Recognizing Jerusalem as Capital
Posted on 09/28/2011 1:12:52 PM PDT by Nachum
Secretary of State Clinton, in a sharp departure from her stance when she was a senator, is warning that any American action, even symbolically, toward recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel must be avoided for the reason that it would jeopardize the peace process. Her warnings were issued in a brief she has just filed with the Supreme Court in which she is arguing that a law she voted for when she was Senator is unconstitutional because it could require the U.S. government to give to an American citizen born at Jerusalem papers showing the birthplace as Israel.

Clinton: And a very happy Rosh HaShana you Jews
The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
The Jewnitors won’t like this.
Hint: If one side doesn't want peace, the "peace process" isn't worth a bucket of warm spit.
We have idiots “in charge.”
I say Clinton will resign this week.
Let’s face it: The “Peace Process” is code for the slow dismanteling of Israel. An its been that way since Bush I.
The Obama Administration does NOT have the right to tell Israel what they can do in their own country. Clinton is a loser.
Joo don't say! How do Joo know this?
I doubt this is a “sharp turnaround” After all it was his wife who kissed Arafats wife wasn’t it? I guess we know what they spoke about when they played golf together a few days ago?!
Quoth Madame Secretary:
“F****** Jew b******”
Simple answer - Muslims out of Jerusalem.
They leave, no longer any contention. They are usurpers and invaders anyway, undeserving of our support or sympathy.
And since they are a moral and just people, the imams shall simply agree and lead their people back to the Kaaba in Mecca, which is a much more holy spot than the Dome on the Rock.
You are correct. We have idiots representing our nation.
Sorry Nachum, misread the article thought it was Bill. Then this isn’t a sharp turnaround for the Mrs. Arafats kisser!!
Hillary “You Jew Bastard!” Clinton has always looked after the best interests of Israel and the Jews. In her “You Jew Bastard!” mind, there will be no peace until Israel is wiped off the map.
Why is Clinton not wearing a burqa?
“it would jeopardize the peace process.”
Oh, yeah, ‘cause it’s going so well now...
Gimme a break - draw the line in the sand and destroy any force that crosses it.
OMG - it could make official government documents say as a place of birth for an American citizen “Jerusalem Israel”?
What the hell else are they going to call it - Jerusalem Palestine? Jerusalem Occupied territories? Jerusalem Ottoman Empire?
is this new for her?
Not a sharp turnaround. Just a particularly nasty thing to do on Rosh Hashanah. It is also important for American Jews who are on the fence about this administration to be reminded often who these heartless people really are.
They could call it “Chinese Taipei.”
Is that an indication that the sour little communist forgot to tell Bill that she really isn’t going to run or is it a head fake to keep the White Hut team from investigating her? We all know the only thing she has ever liked about Jews is their voting block.
Ah yes. The era of flying ashtrays and missing billing records...and no eye contact in the hallway.
Clinton has always been anti-Israel, and apparently antisemitic to boot. That hasn’t changed.
She kissed Suha Arafat after Suha spent most of the meal telling her that the Jews were killing Palestinian kids with poison gasses.
She took money from Muslim terrorists when she was running for the NY Senate.
Her girlfriend, Huma Abedin, has terrorist connections.
And she has been credibly reported as having cursed the Jews, although that is still hearsay.
She has to follow orders from her boss. Don’t think this was suddenly her idea.
“Her girlfriend, Huma Abedin, has terrorist connections.”
and what weiner did didn’t help
Clinton (in her best Sergeant Schultz imitation voice):
“I hear nothing, I see nothing, I know nothing! Vee vill not tolerate truth-telling about Jerusalem.”
the capital of Israel must be avoided for the reason that it would jeopardize the peace process.
I’m always amazed by these ridiculous statements coming from our leaders. Will they never admit that to Palestinians the very existence of Israel is a threat to the peace process and it will always be?
There is no peace process. Its hard to have peace when one group wants to push the other group into the Sea. When are we going to stop worrying about what a bunch of unproductive, trouble making Fakestinians think about anything. Israel needs to take the whole territory back, make Jerusalem the Capital and then push the Fakestinians back over the border into Syria, Jordan, Eqypt etc where they belong. Of course then our Muslim in Chief will probably bring them all to Michighanistan their “new” homeland.
Sounds like a story from the Onion or John Seimens. She is saying a law she voted for is now unconstitutional? When did the RATS start caring about the US Constitution?
As far as I’m concerned... the capital of Israel is Jerusalem! How’s that sit with ya’ Hil? And it should be all Jewish, including the Temple Mount.
Ed Koch is back in the camp and backing Obama again.
Bereft of principles, morality, or even ideas. A large, plastic “reset” button exemplifies her perfectly. Why ANYONE thinks she is any better or more capable than BHO, I cannot imagine.
Please name me even one accomplishment during her tenure as SoS. Be sure it is something that has actually benefited the USA.
BHO is incompetent & corrupt. So is HRC. Neither is a leader by any honest definition of the word. Whether HRC would have been a more competent President than BHO is unknowable, but not likely, given her weak performances as Senator & SoS. Whether she would have been more corrupt is undeniable. So, we may have been relatively lucky that we only have to suffer BHO as President. Regardless, both make me puke every time I see them.
My nearest neighbor was born in Austria-Hungary. Wonder what’s on her passport...?
This is stupid. The State Department has great discretion here. All they need to do is ask one clarifying question to applicants with Jerusalem as their birthplace: Do you want it to say “Jerusalem, Israel” or “Jerusalem, Jordan” (or even “Jerusalem, British Mandate”). Later, if there is a recognized Palestinian sovereign presence, they could add “Jerusalem, Palestine” to the list.
They are making a mountain out of a molehill, and could have defused this a long time ago.
Maybe her muslim girlfriend had some influence.
Again, what Israel needs to do.
1) Eminent domain all Arab property in East Jerusalem.
2) Nationalize all non-Jewish holy sites. With generous lease terms to those who behave as good tenants.
3) For peace, make the Palestinians a deal. Stop attacking us, or we will expel all of you from Gaza and the West Bank. Permanently. No take-backs, no matter who demands it. From that point, no more Arabs entering Israel, except with diplomatic credentials recognized by Israel.
Ed Koch are you happy now?
Has she been fitted for a burka yet?
Hillary was against the Holocaust before she was for it.
You darn betcha. hillary clinton despises Israel AND Jews. She do like their money though.
The Clinton’s owe the Riady’s a lot and possibly the Saudis as well.
Wait GW already did that when he proposed officially for the first time that Palastine be given statehood.
Oh never mind that was super secret, super genius plan number 10,001
If this is true and it sticks on the wall, it has put a big nail in Hillary’s 2012 presidential ambitions.
Not a smart move, this thing. Also puts Obama under the Jewish voter bus and I hope that I’m driving it. Will back up and run over this POS as though he was a big street rat.
Let’s see: Obama doesn’t like Jewish janitors. Michelle doesn’t like anyone who isn’t black. Hillary doesn’t like Jews because of Monica and her husband, so she takes it out on Israel over Jerusalem.
Conclusion: They are all anti-semitic, leftist losers who only love themselves and their egos, not the United States, the Constitution, and honest politics.
OK. Can go to shual tomorrow knowing just who our enemies really are. “God, I need a favor from you”. Got a moment?”
FUHC And a very happy Rosh HaShana
Hillary: And a very happy Rosh HaShana you Jews
Oh yeah, she definitely wanted to get this statement out on Rosh HaShana in particular.
Ol' Fingerprints Clinton strikes again.
"We Democrats, led by Obama and us Clintons, will
exterminate Israel's capitol for their New Year."
Hillary Clinton is ugly. Inside and out. She and Obama are both antisemites. I’m half Jewish and very offended!
