Clinton anticipates a discussion about the Arab Spring, which not only brought about Mubarak's downfall in Egypt but also sparked what has become a virtual civil war in Syria, leading to instability on two of Israel's borders.

And WHEN will our Fascist, Neo-Commie, Dear Leader find the time to visit our long-standing ally, Israel?

Probably not any time soon, as he and his coterie of advisers (who include MANY members/supporters of the Moose-limb Bros) are too busy trying to undermine our Israeli/Jewish friends and the ONLY democratic country in the ME, while propping up and supporting every upheaval of several countries by the Islamic Jihadists.

“The fall of Mubarak” described without attribution. A more accurate representation would be that Mubarak was brought down by the US.

Apparently the Israelis find more value in eating their tomatoes than wasting them by throwing them at a worthless POS.

I hope that Israel tells Hillary they are waiting for the new non-Sufa Arafat-kissing Secretary of State to visit about six months from now.

The neo-commie, muslin fascist can do these things because he already has the Jewish vote locked up.

It should be a focus, but I'm not sure Israel can do much about Egypt, at this point in time.

Sure. We got plenty of donkey turds, which aren’t nearly as nutritious or hard to make as a good tomato. In fact, we have an inexhaustible supply of donkey, dog and cat turds, not to mention sheep and goats. As for bull-s@#*, Hillary brought her own.
