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.

At the time (to me, at least) that declaration made some sense. It’s easy to blame an entire culture for the actions of a few, but it’s not the right thing to do. Now, almost 11 years later, we’ve fought two major wars and had God knows how many other involvements with Muslims around the world.

Now we know for sure, and there is no excuse.

Is she 'hurt' the Southern Poverty Law Center ONLY goes after 'terrorists' if they're 'right wing'?

Is she hurt that when the SPLS demonizes her fellow Americans in such a biased hateful way?

Nah. She's with THEM.

Her sympathy is for wealthy Arabs who offer large chunks of money and power to those willing to suspend decency and love of country.

Maybe that link should be stand alone post...

“That’ll teach them to f*** with us.”-to aides, immediately following her “Vast right-wing conspiracy” charge on national television (The Case Against Hillary Clinton, p. 162).

That’s probably what they’re talking about. They’re looking towards becoming a minority in America, and want the right to stomp on minority dhimmes. Not allowing that is anti-Muslim.

I want nothing to do with the sub-humans who refuse to get beyond the 6th century.

Too bad Mo-Ham-Mud did not demand they all kill themselves.

You don’t buy it from the shouq. Israelis make this stuff(kubba, shawarma, hilbe, tehina, halva, falafel, Schug, etc.), and it’s both hygenic and delicious. But guess from whom we learned?

There has been nothing to learn from any followers of this devil worship. Like my tag line says: Nothing says “ignorance” like Islam.

The world would be a much better place without such human cockroaches.

One of the most frustrating unanswered questions is just how much damage/killing will the governments of the world tolerate from these ignorant vermin until they allow their citizens to take the action the ruling elite refuses to do?

This is just another time for Hillary to show her almost total lack of understanding of what the USA was intended to be by the Founders and to also show her true national preferences according to her socialistic character. The fact that she sucks the political toe of Obama for whatever reason or purpose shows she would give/subject the USA to her and Obama’s enablers.

Speaking of Muslim bias in America, Ramadan begins in July this year. It is a holiday that moves slower than the calendar, and so begins weeks earlier from year to year.

In 2009, Ramadan was between August 21 and September 19.
In 2010, Ramadan was between August 11 and September 9.
In 2011, Ramadan was between August 1 and August 30.

In 2012, Ramadan will be beteen July 20 and August 18.

Coincidentally, the Obama private no-press-allowed Martha's Vineyard summer vacations were:

In 2009, between August 23 and August 30.
In 2010, between August 19 and August 29.
In 2011, between August 18 and August 28.

In 2012, Obama will miss Ramadan completely if he keeps to his past summer vacation schedule.

There is nothing in the news so far about the Obama family's upcoming summer vacation plans.

Soros probably runs the country, through the teleprompter.

Part of the ignorance of Islam is the belief that they have nothing to learn from anyone else. Bacteria isn’t mentioned in the Koran, so they have no need for hygiene, for example. You are mirroring that by saying you have absolutely nothing to learn from them.

The Talmud says “who is a wise man? One who can learn from everyone.” I learn plenty from the Arabs. Their religion, where it isn’t insane, is plagiarized from Judaism. But for some reason, Orthodox Jews, whose daily life is even more restrictive than that of Muslims, have managed to avoid the backwardness and stagnation that plagues Islam. Understanding why that is is a major preoccupation of mine. It’s what Islam can teach me, an Orthodox Jew: in other words, I learn what the f@#$ is their problem.

So, if you will not even try their cuisine, at least take the time to smoke a hookah. It’s a delightful habit, even more relaxing than cigars. I think it was designed to calm down psyched up Muslims who are about to start a feud over some breach of their “honor”. The village elder sits everyone down and passes around a hookah, as he gets them all to discuss their differences and come to an agreement. Jews don’t start blood feuds with each other as Arabs do. But we need to relax as much as the next man. Some of the mellowest hours of my life have been spent sharing a hookah with my eldest son on a Saturday night. By myself, there’s no pleasure in it. But as a social smoke, it’s priceless.

Bush was practicing some taqiya of his own. He didn’t want to take on 1.2 billion Muslims all at once, so he said the right things to reassure the majority while he went after ElQaeda and Saddam, his target of the moment. The Left actually believes they’re the religion of peace, because it reminds them of communism. As long as some ideology or other takes over the entire world, in the lefties’ books, there will be peace at last.

I am deeply hurt by the fact that a Secretary of State, a supposedly serious, responsible person, keeps discussing her feelings with the world, as if it was some ladies’ support group where they all sit around and sip tea and eat almond tarts as they discuss their feelings. Shudup, I say, and get down to business, Ms. Secretary.
