After Jon Stewart Goes to Bat for Gaza, Hillary Clinton Puts Him in His Place [Israel and Hamas]
Algemeiner ^ | Friday, July 18, 2014 | Shiryn Ghermezian

Posted on 07/18/2014 7:35:21 PM PDT by Star Traveler

A day after Jewish comedian Jon Stewart caused outrage with a segment on his Daily Show on the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, he hosted former Secretary of State, and wannabe president, Hillary Clinton on his show to address the topic. After Stewart attempted to draw her into criticizing Israel, Clinton swiftly put him in his place.

Stewart: Can we at least agree that the humanitarian crisis in Gaza is overwhelming and that the world must do more for the people who are trapped by this conflict?

Clinton: And they’re trapped by their leadership. unfortunately, it’s a two-pronged trapping that is committed to resistance and violence and therefore their actions are mostly about how do we get new and better missiles to launch them at Israel instead of saying, ‘hey, lets try to figure out how we’re going to help make your lives better.’ And when I negotiated the cease-fire in November of 2012, it was right on the brink of Israel once again invading Gaza because of the rockets and so I flew from Cambodia, where I was with the president, to try to see what I can do. And, you know, the Israelis are absolutely right in saying that they can’t just sit there and let rockets rain down. They have a missile defense system, which is working well, but, you know, that can’t be certain, and now there are drones apparently that are being launched from Gaza.

No one should believe a word this fork tongued woman speaks. In the ‘90’s, she was the BFF of Yassar Arafat and his wife; now she’s the friend of Israel? I don’t think so.

Perhaps, but there wasn’t a shred of a lie in what she said to Stewart.

There has been SILENCE from Jordan, Egypt, SA, UAE, etc. Silence. They are hoping we finally let the Israelis finish the job completely this time.

Oh, and those rockets they found in a UN school? You don’t just misplace rockets at a school. The UN is an Iranian proxy here.

She NEVER does ANYTHING honest and she handled this TOO smoothly.

She said it, and it does SOUND GOOD, but PLEASE..!

Stewart got his COMEUPPANCE..?

Nah..!

His audience loves him NO MATTER WHAT…!

He’s a sharp guy, KNOWS Hillary is the next candidate and he was HELPING her.

NO act of Hillaghazi is 100% honest, without a shadow of an orchestration.

She has a sharp memory and she trades in favors —THIS is one of them.

There was a very valuable horticultural business that was set up by the Israelis that had lived in Gaza , and the idea was that this would be literally turned over, money was provided, there would be a fund that would train Palestinians in Gaza to do this work. And basically, the leadership said, ‘We don’t want anything left from Israel.’ Destroyed it all.

I remember this. I'm glad she brought it up.

Yes, for sure. There was enough self serving credit she gave herselfness, when “ SHE negotiationed” her “cease fire”, between Israel and Hamas in 2012.

Hillary spent her tenure at State assigning seasoned, experienced MEN to the case, whom she then dispatched to do ALL the heavy lifting. Every time.

She swooped in frequently to international capital cities for the cake line and cocktails, but the only heavy lifting by her was lifting the hors d’oeuvres from their silver trays.

One thing, though, about that ... support for a Israel is broad, across the aisle, both Democrat and Republican.

It wasn’t an interview. It was a scripted political ad, sponsored by Viacom.

Hillary has a ton of islamist baggage in her closet. Her people know it’s going to be used against her in the race for Jewish donor cash.

And, before playing 'kissy face' with Suha Arafat, she was accounted to be pro-Israel (to the point where it was believed in certain circles that both she, and the late Vince Foster were actually engaged in espionage on Israel's behalf.) Thus her 'pendulum' has swung, swung back, and swung back yet one more time. Suffice to say, where she really stands is terra icognito...

Exactly! She is also doing it on immigration. The only difference between her and Bill on the one hand, and the Great Pretender in the Oval Office on the other is that the Great Pretender doesn’t know how to triangulate. He just keeps on taking all sides of the same question at the same time. His tongue is forked with sooo many tines.

Hillary Clinton carries more baggage than your average 747. Unfortunately, most Americans don’t care. She is the wife of the man who was president when the Republican led congress oversaw a great economy and that is all they need to know.

Jewish when he’s cool.

Not Jewish when he’s a turd.

Judaism is a religion.... the mother of my own.

Jewish is an identity or quasi ethnicity that for some is more like a clique you’re born to

Leibowitz is a self hater....not so uncommon for secular chosen....why?
I’ll leave that to Fromm.

Levin has slammed him pretty hard on all this past few days...quite accurately.... concisely and appropriately...

In my view.....

Anyhow....some Jews like to be Jewish when its cool but disdain the meat of it

The wellspring of a kapo.

Leibowitz claims daddy abused him....yada yada

It is kind of pathetic to watch some of these commentators trot out the same old lines they used in 2008. It doesn’t matter whether a lot of Israelis are killed or not. If 100’s of rockets were raining down on New York, Long Island or New Jersey or whatever, there is no government that could continue to rule if they did not respond with all the might they could muster to end it. This is government 101. Defend your population from attack. A government that does not act to defend their people has no moral authority to lead. Every politician knows this, every diplomat knows this. Its brain dead to think anybody can tell Israel they should not act with extreme prejudice. Israel puts up with all kind of awful random acts of violence including sporadic rocket attacks and gets no credit for it when it does. But at some point when “turning the other cheek” just encourages more attacks and when diplomacy, sanctions etc fail to work Israel has to act as any government would act. Rockets falling every day is a national crisis, is the front page and headline on every news channel, the talk all over the town, it disrupts the economy and on and on. Israel has to attack and if that doesn’t stop they have to invade, and maybe even occupy, arrest and/or kill the top “military commanders” in Hamas.

Of course it was a set-up! For many reasons including her political career. The fact that she is speaking also forces the Obama administration’s hand in some way too. When she “served at the pleasure of the President” she had to say what he wanted. Now she can say what she wants, what is in her interest to say and perhaps its also be a way to get back at Obama, to lead from the sideline, to one-up the administration or second-guess/undermine its diplomacy.

Hillary's put her finger to the wind... she knows which way it's blowing. Good for her. Today she stands with Israel... well, until the winds shift.

Too bad we can't ask the dead SEALS how they feel about Hillary's 'loyalty' - might be telling.

Benjamin Netanyahu wasn't born yesterday - he'll be happy for Hillary's support but he's smart enough to know he can't count on it... (Now that Israel is winning we can expect John Kerry to become 'nicer' too)

I agree. I think Stewart took a dive so that Hillary could make herself look good by "putting him in his place." This was about as real as the famous Jerry Lawler - Andy Kaufman "confrontation" on David Letterman's show.
