Skip to comments.Panetta, Clinton and Gutman—Israel tsuris for the Obama administration
Posted on 12/05/2011 7:24:17 PM PST by SJackson
There is a lot of anger all around in recent days over various remarks made by Obama administration officials.
The Anti-Defamation League is angry about Defense Secretary Leon Panettas remarks at this years Saban Forum:
We are deeply troubled by the message sent by Secretary Panetta at precisely a moment when the region is so volatile and uncertain. The Defense Secretary emphasized the shared U.S. and Israeli interest in deepened strategic cooperation and in countering the Iranian threat. But he undermined the sense of assurance that this could have projected by using a prestigious public platform to focus disproportionate responsibility on Israel for the campaign of hostility against her.
Some Israeli Cabinet ministers are angry about Hillary Clintons reported remarks at the Saban Forum:
Several Israeli government ministers on Sunday sharply responded to U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over her critical comments on the status of women in Israel and Knesset bills that would restrict left-wing organizations.
Speaking to a closed forum in Washington on Saturday, Clinton criticized recent legislative attempts in Israel to restrict left-wing organizations and expressed shock over growing discrimination against Israeli women. She mentioned cases of IDF soldiers leaving during performances of female singers and the fact that females sit in the back of buses in certain places in Israel. Clinton said that some of these phenomena reminded her of Iran.
(The ADL, however, is angry about some of the same things that Clinton is angry about.)
And a bunch of folks are angry at the U.S. ambassador to Belgium over some remarks that he made regarding the link between Israel and anti-Semitism:
US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman on Sunday rejected claims that he excused certain types of anti-Semitism, arguing during a gathering in Brussels that comments he made Thursday were misunderstood.
Nonetheless, Jewish organizations felt the distinction the ambassador drew between traditional and new forms of anti-Semitism accepted bigotry against Jews that stemmed from the Israeli-Arab conflict.
I strongly condemn anti-Semitism in all its forms, said the Jewish diplomat, whose father was a Holocaust survivor, in a press release posted on the embassys website.
I deeply regret if my comments were taken the wrong way. My own personal history and that of my family is testimony to the salience of this issue and my continued commitment to combating anti-Semitism.

Hillary utterly ignores Christian victims in Iraq, who have been driven out all over the Middle East, the Coptics, etc.,
but is always eager to defend the Palistinians by snarking Israel. Godless. Hillary is a hissing serpent who has never pretended to be anything else but Godless.
It is hard to believe that Ambassador Gutman is naive about muslims and their feelings about the Jews......It must be then that he is ignorant about the directives in the Koran that instruct muslims to kill Jews where they find them. This is apart from instructing muslim children that Jews are apes and pigs under any circumstances.
Recall the Ambassador.
They know Obama won’t get 4 more years to complete his destruction of the USA and Israel so they are putting the heat on the Israelis and moving Israel up on the “Arab Spring” calendar.

Are you astonished? Hillary’s (Hitlery’s) very very personal assistant/companion, Huma Abedin, who is always with her like Obama’s Reggie Love, has deep family ties (mother and father) with the Al Qaeda terrorist group and Islamic activism.
Google “Huma Abedin” or put it into the search box on www.antimullah.com
I think Huma was intended as a pre-placed assassin in the event that Hillary! managed to get elected.
A lot to be said for eliminating a sitting president and a bunch of high level staff at a critical moment...
It is just more than I can take to think that Huma could convince Hillary of such evil, but Hillary is more predictable now than ever for siding against anything to do with Christians, lacking any affiliation whatsoever with the faith. You never see her in church, or speaking of her Methodist days. Cold.
Huma convince Hillary to be evil?
And Hitler killed the Jews on the advice of his butler, and Mao slaughtered 80 million Chinese because his car mechanic told him to, and Stalin murdered tens of millions of Russians because his cook advised him.
Good Lord, I think you actually just posted the vilest mindf**k I ever read on the internet.
” Good Lord, I think you actually just posted the vilest mindf**k I ever read on the internet. “ <<<
And you can go chisel your own brain plaque elsewhere, you hysterical tyrant. Find someone who gives a small rip what you think.

Oh, I believe it, I just can’t deal with it. We are all observers to our own take over. THAT is what makes me crazy. This is what unfettered access to the influence of foreign gods on a nation brings. And we sit here as observers, typing about it.
