Hillary's hatred of Israel is a campaign vulnerability
The American Spectator ^ | March 4, 2014 | Brett M. Decker

Posted on 03/04/2014 1:06:54 PM PST by TigerTown

Hillary Clinton essentially has been coronated the next Democratic nominee and first woman president of the United States 33 months before the 2016 election. This media-driven certainty ignores her many negatives, including the Benghazi debacle on her watch, the circus sideshow of her husband Bill, her tendency to give off an unlikable vibe, and the possibility that another green amateur could swoop in out of nowhere to defeat her in the primaries like Barack Obama did in 2008. There is also the issue of Israel

The leading Democrat contender for president wants to put Israel in a box, like President Obama is doing. There is a solution that can stabilize the only democracy in the Mideast and ratchet down anarchy in the region, but it's not one Washington diplomats are going to like.

33 months out. I think things are going to get mighty rocky in the Middle East in that time frame. At the risk of everyone reading this upchucking on their keyboards with a visual, this may come back to bite her on the butt.

How would a Rat's anti-Israel positions hurt them?

The media will play it down. The vast majority of American Jews will vote for them and give them campaign money. The pro-Israel supporters are mostly conservative Christians. There is no way they will ever vote for the Rats.

You know who. That poor woman who was so visciously slandered by the evil/vile/puppy stompers on the right.

She who through no fault of her own was forced into record profits on futures trading.

She who endured decades of lies over her husband’s innocent ministering to troubled interns.

You know. That poor woman.

Oh come now...Hillary! whotook fire over Bosnia. Who personally fought in vain to save our people in Bhenghazi after the filth ridden conservatives stripped them of every last cent of defense spending. She whose concern goes beyond the difference things make. She whose time in the senate served as a shining beacon to the poor and disadvantaged as she reduced herself in poverty.

Shirley you’ve heard of her?

Doesn’t matter. The rich secular American Jews couldn’t care less about Israel. They’re Marxists first, Americans second and Jews third.

0bama hated Israel and “Jews” voted for him anyway.

Proving that in America, “Jews” are leftists first, and mainly (by polling) atheist.

Three hundred starving syphilitic rats and Moose and Monica Lewinsky. Infrared video on pay per view. Boring, I know

Thats why it was presented as a joke as were the above comments.

But if you look at their records, it isn’t ‘entirely’ false. Which should be seen as disturbing.

Hatred of Israel is not a problem for a Rat negotiating the Presidential Primaries. The Rats are pretty monolithic in their hatred of Israel, even Jews.

RE: “Hillary's hatred of Israel is a campaign vulnerability.”

Really?

Hatred of Israel seems to have worked out OK for two term President Barack Obama.

Fact is, a majority of American Jews passionately hate Conservative Republicans.

Fact is, a majority of American Jews will NEVER vote Republican, no matter how dangerous that might be for Israel.

I’m not sure why that would hurt. Obama hates Jews at least as much as Hillary does, and he still won the Jewish vote - twice.

People need to be reminded that Hillary cheated in an election by exchanging Jewish votes for Bill letting an Israeli prisoner go free. Democrats are so corrupt and there followers won't care what they do. Maybe there are enough people that have had enough of zerocare to stop these people.

Turning support for an eventual Palestinian state — something Clinton shared with GW Bush and Condoleeza Rice — into hatred of Israel is just stupid chumpbait demagoguery.

Personally I don't think Hillary hates Israel or hates Jews, he positions are consistant with the far left and their world view. However I'd suggest reading the article which headline and the author's first paragraph or two are about Caroline Glick's new book advocating a one state solution. The nine failed two state proposals since 1970 are not uniquely democrat inspired, and the current fiasco dates to Oslo, supported in full by two Democrat and two Republican presidents. I've not read her book yet, but suspect it will be informative. As some people may recall, as someone who was somewhat supportive of the Gaza withdrawl based on my purely personal belief that Sharon's intent was a similar withdrawl from parts of the West Bank, unilaterally defining a Palestinian state, I think it makes sense. It's not clear to me whether Caroline's book advocates complete annexation or partial, but imo unilateral action is all that's feasible for at least the next few generations.

Yeah, that's a real puzzler ... Commentary looked at the issue in a January 2010 online article about Sarah Palin, and then David Frum jumped in with a Netzine article of his own on his site, followed by (I think) "Pareena" on Gawker.com, and then there was another article on jewschool.com along the same lines and another on thewire.com.

You'd think these Jews would have figured out 30 years ago that conservative Christians (and vice versa) are about the best friends they've got on earth and act accordingly. But they still appear to think that faith-based conservatives are some kind of Christian Taliban, and that to put thumbs in their eyes at every opportunity is a mitzvah, an obligatory good deed.

Probably not if you look at the photo of her and Natalie Portman together.

I know you are not naïve, but Hillary would throw Israel under the bus faster than 0bama.

Absorption of the Palis into a "one-state solution" would result in a Pali majority and the dissolution of the Jewish state, followed by a regime of pogrom and terror, and/or internecine civil war with casualties in the range of (10)6 KIA and MIA.

I thought sensible Jews had dismissed the "one-state" idea a long time ago. You can't share a society, a social compact, with people whose fondest dream is to slit your throat in the night.

If it was to her personal benefit, of course she would. When it comes to things like power hunger and narcissism she's no different than Obama. They'd betray anyone, anything, any nation, including our own. It's the motivation I was addressing.

Since absorbing Gaza isn’t a consideration to anyone, most people don’t think it would result in a palestinian majority, though the future demographics could be problematical I suppose. Actually there is support for a one state solution, mostly on the Israeli right. Things like the conditions for citizenship could be problematic. Arabs living in East Jerusalem have been eligible for citizenship since the 1967 war. It’s my understanding only a minority have taken up the offer, which is still open. I haven’t read Caroline’s book so I don’t want to mischaracterize what she’s proposing, but there have been proposals for partial annexation. I recall one from a decade or so that would have created a self governing area, but with Arabs having Jordanian citizenship, which obviously wouldn’t be practical, Jordan likely refusing. Or a transitional area, with the benefits of citizenship right to vote postponed to a future date when stability has been established. Personally I’d be skeptical of anything but a partial annexation, but I’m not an Israeli and don’t have to live with the results. There have also been suggestions that Arabs who wish would be financially rewarded to voluntarily relocate, also a likely non starter since no Arab state is going to take them. Obviously the two state concept isn’t workable as long as terrorists, quiet for now, run the West Bank.
