Clinton Deeply 'Hurt' By Charges That U.S. is Anti-Muslim
Arutz Sheva ^ | 6/5/12 | Rachel Hirshfeld

Posted on 05/06/2012 6:08:15 AM PDT by Eleutheria5

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday she was deeply hurt by charges that the United States was biased against Muslims, adamantly defending America’s record in protecting minorities.

Clinton, visiting the world’s third largest Muslim-majority country Bangladesh, was asked by a student at a public forum about perceptions that the United States was against Islam, the AFP reported.

“That hurts me so much,” Clinton said. “It’s a painful perception to hear about and I deeply regret that anyone believes that or propagates it.”

Clinton said that the decade of U.S.-led war on terror was “self-defense” after the September 11, 2001 attacks by al-Qaeda, and she said extremists “perverted” the teachings of Islam.

“Is there discrimination or prejudice in the United States, like in every society and country in the world? Unfortunately, yes. Human nature has not changed dramatically,” she asserted.

“There is discrimination against people of different religions, of different races, of different ethnic groups all over the world... but I don’t think that it is at all fair to hold up the United States” over discrimination, she stated.

“I believe that the United States through our laws and through our constant political dialogue has gone probably farther than anywhere else in the world in trying to guarantee legal protections for people. I would like to see more countries do more to protect the rights of minorities,” she continued.

Clinton is the first U.S. secretary of state to visit Bangladesh since 2003 amid concern over political infighting that has long polarized the country.

Interesting that many on the left have no problem with comments about shooting Cheney, or eradicating conservatives, or gang raping conservative women (e.g. the comments by Sandra Bernhard), etc. etc., but Hillary is in a tizzy because it might be thought that the US - the same US that had thousands of citizens killed (including children) and the two tallest buildings in its largest city destroyed by Muslim terrorists - might be less than enthusiastic about Islam.

She certainly has her talking points down doesn't she.

She's another hack that I can rattle off in my mind what she is going to say before she says it.

And never forget the importance to our country the words "deeply" and "monitoring".

Yes. Extreme left-wingers perverted the teachings of Islam to not mean what it plainly says: conquer the world, kill all infidels who won’t convert, and systematically humiliate all Christians and Jews. True believers, however, know the difference, and don’t buy into that perverted image of Islam.

But they will never speak out against the evil doers, either. Thus, they are all in the same cult; extremists and enablers.

Well said. These people in our government are going to get more Americans killed.

The Ford Hood massacre and follow-up is a prime example of Hillary/Leftist attitudes that are perverted beyond belief.

Sadly, many more will die, I think, before common sense starts to once again come forth. If at all.

It would be nice to take some of the koran, quran, or whatever the heck they call that book, and expose the writings that INSTRUCT MUSLIMS TO KILL CHRISTIANS AND JEWS.

If their “holy” book promotes evil and violence, why would it be off limits - it should be at the heart of the discussion. That, along with their sharia law.

I am anti-koran, anti-sharia. If that makes me anti-muslim religion, so be it.

It "hurts" her so much? Bull crap!

Why shouldn't Americans be biased against a murderous medieval cult that wants to enslave them or kill them? It's not like there aren't centuries of evidence or mountains of corpses out there as evidence!

This has nothing to do with "tolerance" and everything to do with survival. As usual, Hillary is rooting for the wrong side - which is a dangerous thing for our Secretary of State.

Nobody cares what she theoretically “feels”. Instead, she needs to lay down ground rules of what is acceptable behavior for Muslims and what is not.

This should not be couched in Islamic terms, but with the objectivity of non-Muslims, so they should be aware that the tricks and evasions they use within Islam will not be respected nor tolerated.

If they follow these rules, they will be treated with respect as civilized people. And if they do not follow these rules, they do not matter for they are behaving as barbarians and animals and will be treated as such. Their path will be to ruin and destruction and they will be forgotten as primitive pagans.

She should also be clear that Muslims have the capability to choose either path, but once that choice is made, it is final. They cannot behave as civilized one day and as barbarians the next, or they will be treated as barbarians always.

Nor can they embrace those who behave as barbarians without obtaining their stench. “Good” Muslims behave as civilized people. “Bad” Muslims behave as barbarians, and must be condemned by “good” Muslims as failures before Allah and the ummah.

Obama and Hillary and apparently the rest of official Washington and the State Department have provided such overwhelming unfair protection for these beasts that, yea, a large portion of Americans are predisposed to consider Islam a mortal foe. Any sane person would. But the constant protection and appoligies for them is maddening, and makes us madder.

Muzzies who follow their Koran are here to cause trouble.

They are anti-”infidel” so why shouldn’t we be anti-Islam?

Hard to believe, that these ignorant, weak excuses for American Leadership - are in fact, 'ours' to claim. No Liberal; No Democrat, for that matter; should be allowed withing five miles of 'power'. Ever.

Give them a Government job; low level; and do not promote without merit. That should do it.

If only. . .

Why not a jobs program for All of them. Down to Haiti; and they can create the paradise they have always dreamed of creating. Fresh slate too. Hillary could be President or Biden for that matter. Obama and Michelle could build their own Chicago; by-the-sea.

Give 'Blago' a get-out-of-jail card; so he can help.

Mudslimes will be the demise of the USA if the mudslime in chief does not do it first with his hatred of our constitution, our Judeo-Christian values, our vast superiority over his filthy Marxist allies and his love of all things black over anything white.

Yes I hate, detest, loath anything to do with these prehistoric camel riding monkey boys. They all are a festering boil on the planet earth and unless lanced, will continue to devour everything in their path.

They contribute nothing. They are a black hole sucking the life blood out of the world and anything they touch.

However, the dark lord has declared the war on terror over so they must have capitulated right? Not likely.

Dear Bangladeshi denizen:

Let me emphasize that Hillary Clinton does not speak for America. She speaks for a particular group in this country that is willing to abide your "religion's" depredations, and ignore the bloody trail of murder, mayhem, and hatred that follows in its wake like slime from a slug.

I, and I believe I would be correct in saying a number of other Americans DESPISE islam. We despise the savagery committed in its name. We despise the Dark Age ignorance that is its hallmark. We despise the sniveling justifications you offer for barbarity unmatched in human history. But mostly we despise the fact that you work very hard at being despicable, then wonder why the world despises you.

Short answer? Yes, Mohammed. We hate islam.

At the risk of being banned I do credit her with throwing in at least one true defense of our country:

"I believe that the United States through our laws and through our constant political dialogue has gone probably farther than anywhere else in the world in trying to guarantee legal protections for people. I would like to see more countries do more to protect the rights of minorities, she continued."

Probably a typo in her print out ... ;-)
