Hillary Accepts Contributions from Boston Area Muslim Terrorist Supporters

No Easy Ride for Hillary!

Her reluctance to speak candidly is her biggest obstacle.

By Deroy Murdock, a columnist with the Scripps Howard News Service

As New Yorkers prepare to elect a new U.S. senator on November 7, Hillary Rodham Clinton remains hounded by twin suspicions about her honesty and commitment to Israel. Her plunging support among Jewish voters in a recent survey suggests that these nagging questions may be causing grave damage to her Senate candidacy.

Mrs. Clinton fueled these lingering doubts in November 1999 when she kissed Yasser Arafat's wife, Suha, immediately after Mrs. Arafat delivered a speech accusing Israel of murdering Arab children — with poison gas, no less. Mrs. Clinton said she did not understand the simultaneous translation of Mrs. Arafat's Arabic remarks. In any case, why the smooch? Given the PLO's legacy of violence, wouldn't a handshake have sufficed?

Mrs. Clinton sparked further questions when she claimed that she asked President Clinton to veto an anti-Israel resolution in the United Nations Security Council on October 7. The U.S. abstained instead. But did she really urge that veto, or simply concoct that story afterward to limit the damage to her candidacy after the abstention drew fire? Mrs. Clinton has been very uncomfortable discussing this matter. When I asked her about this at an October 17 Council on Foreign Relations meeting, she huffed: "That question does not even deserve a response. I have said everything about that I have to say."

Now Hillary Clinton has puzzled Jewish voters and friends of Israel with yet another stumble. The New York Daily News reported on October 25 that her Senate campaign has returned $50,000 collected at a Boston fundraiser attended by Muslims and Americans of Arab descent. The First Lady posed for photos holding a plaque given to her by the event's organizers. It expressed the appreciation of the American Muslim Alliance for her human-rights activism. Mrs. Clinton now says she didn't know the award was from the Alliance, even though the group's name was emblazoned on the trophy in large letters. "I get handed thousands of plaques," Mrs. Clinton now says. Alas for the First Lady, the American Muslim Alliance's national president, Agha Saeed, favors the Palestinian struggle for independence from Israel and believes the Palestinians "have the right to resist by armed force."

Mrs. Clinton has hosted events at the Executive Mansion "to which individuals opposed to the Mideast peace process and Israel's existence were invited," the Daily News reported. Her Senate campaign returned a $1,000 contribution from one of those visitors, Abduraham Alamoudi of the American Muslim Council. According to the Daily News, Alamoudi once declared: "We are the ones who went to the White House and defended what is called Hamas," the Palestinian terrorist group whose 1994-1996 suicide-bombing campaign killed 130 people and wounded some 600 others. Shortly after one of its bombs exploded in Jerusalem in August 1997, Alamoudi told Fox News about Hamas: "I think it's a freedom-fighting organization."

Mrs. Clinton's June 30, 2000 Federal Election Commission filing cited Alamoudi's May 25 donation of $1,000 to her war chest. Oddly enough, his occupation is not listed as "American Muslim Council" but "American Museum Council." The Clinton campaign calls this a typo. (To see Alamoudi's contribution record, search under his surname here.)

A reasonable voter might give another candidate the benefit of the doubt here. But this is the same Hillary Rodham Clinton who is associated with the "bureaucratic snafu" that led to Filegate.

This is the same First Lady whose Rose Law Firm billing records vanished for two years, then magically reappeared in the White House residence just days after the Resolution Trust Corporation concluded a Whitewater-related probe in which the records would have been relevant. "I do not know how the billing records came to be found where they were found," the First Lady shrugged back in January 1996.

This is the same woman who special prosecutor Robert Ray believes gave deceptive sworn testimony in the Travelgate affair. As Ray's October 18 report concludes: Mrs. Clinton "played a role in the decision to fire the [White House Travel Office] employees and…thus, her statement to the contrary under oath to this office is factually false."

As Bill Clinton's presidency wanes, a Hillary Clinton Senate term could be waxing around the corner. For now, her Republican opponent stands in the way. In a Zogby poll published October 31 in the New York Post, Rep. Rick Lazio led the Dutchess of Chappaqua 47.8 percent to 42.9 (margin of error: plus or minus 3.8 percent).

Mrs. Clinton's collapsing popularity among Jewish voters also spells trouble. On October 29, Zogby found her leading among Jews by 68.8 percent to 27.3 for Lazio. (Margin of error: plus or minus 4 percent). Two days later, in the aforementioned October 31 poll, only 46 percent of Jews favored Mrs. Clinton while Lazio's support climbed to 45 percent.

But the biggest obstacle between Hillary Clinton and her Capitol Hill dreams may be her reluctance to speak candidly about the scandals that nip at her heels like Park Avenue poodles. New Yorkers soon may decide that they deserve better in the Senate than a politician's wife who parachuted into the Empire State with ambitions nearly as awesome as her allergy to the truth.

FLASH BACK: Hillary accepts contributions from BOSTON area Musilms who support the Hamas terrorists.

While the FBI is seizing bank accounts and "following the paper trail," maybe they should look into Hillary's campaign warchest for any clues. ...I wonder if the junior Senator from NY will be any more cooperative with the investigation than the Taliban?

Gee, Hillary gets confused a lot!! I wonder why anyone voted for a woman who misremembers and disremembers so much.

It's great that we have people like you to jog our memories.

Thanks for this post. Here is more on Hilldebeast and contributions from the Arab world, including friends of the first class terrorist Arrafatty:

With Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff For the story behind the story... Sunday November 5, 2000; 8:50 PM ET'

Hezbollah Hillary' Took Thousands From Arafat CronyA family with close ties to Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat contributed thousands of dollars to Senate candidate Hillary Clinton at a secret fund raiser in May, Federal Election Commission records reviewed by NewsMax.com show.

The family of Hani Masri donated $6,000 directly to Mrs. Clinton's campaign on May 11 and 12 of this year. On May 12, Clinton attended a fund raiser at Masri's Washington, D.C., mansion - which, as the Jewish Forward reported later that month, was closed to the press and was not even listed on her daily schedule.In May alone, Masri himself donated $134,000 to the Democratic Party - money that could be funneled into Clinton's Senate campaign.

FEC records show a handful of other Masri contributions to various Democratic causes going all the way back to 1995, but nothing like the burst of generosity in May 2000.The Masri family controls the Palestinian Development Investment Co., a business entity with ties to Yasser Arafat.

Masri himself has been described as "an advisor" to Arafat.According to the Forward, another company run by Masri, Capital Investment Management Corp., was awaiting approval from the Clinton administration for a $60 million loan guaranteed by U.S. taxpayers through the Overseas Private Investment Corp (OPIC).

Masri told the Forward that he was asked by Mrs. Clinton's campaign to stage the secret fund raiser.FEC records show a total of $9,000 contributed directly to Clinton by Mr. Masri, his wife, Cheryl, and other apparent relatives, Jane and Zaher Masri, on or shortly before the day of the event.

All their contributions list Washington, D.C., or Virginia addresses. Masri's Capital Investment Management Corp. is located in McLean, Va.Six weeks after the secret gathering, the Clinton campaign returned $3,000 to Zaher Masri for reasons that are unclear. A total of $50,000 was raised at the off-the-record event.

In the final weeks of the campaign, Mrs. Clinton has come under fire for attending a June fund raiser sponsored by the American Muslim Alliance, which reportedly advocates violence against Israel.

Clinton denied any knowledge of the group's sponsorship, though two White House documents, an e-mail and even a photograph of her at the event holding a plaque bearing the AMA's name have emerged to contradict her alibi.Meanwhile, her solicitation of friends of Yasser Arafat at an event deliberately concealed from the press has gone virtually unreported.

IMHO opinion there had to be money exchanged when she and X42 arranged for the old time terrorists, the Puerto Rico bombers of Congress to be released ahead of their time!

Of course Hilldebeast never meet a terrorist, that she didn't love. Remember the pictures of her in full lust hugs with the wife of Arafatty?

Hilldebeast was a friend, helper, advisor and ???? to the Black Panthers early in her career as an abettor of terrorists!

Maybe the reason Hillary has been looking so down lately is because she's afraid of where the terrorists' papertrail may lead.

Last night the NEW YORK Rangers and the PHILADELPHIA Flyers were playing hockey in between fighting when the intermission began and they put up the President addressing the nation. There were many standing ovations and lots of booing at hitlery for making faces, rolling her eyes and being disrespectful. When the intermission was over and they wanted to go back to playing the fans reacted angrily chanting LEAVE IT ON, LEAVE IT ON and they got their wish. Considering the two cities involved in the game, I take that as a good sign.

Jewish voters in New York didn't seem to care about this then, or the Suha Arafat kiss, or Hillary's earlier comment that the West Bank should be an independent Palestinian State, or the credible tales of her use of antisemitic language before entering the White House. I have a lot of Jewish friends who are less pro-Israel than I am. They seem to have some kind of death wish. So I don't know what will serve to change their opinions.

Hildebeast: "I get handed thousands of plaques" You do? I challenge you to write up a list of the "thousands" of plaques that have been handed to you. I bet there's less than 500, maybe less than 100, that have been handed to you, LYING BITCH!

Mrs. Clinton's June 30, 2000 Federal Election Commission filing cited Alamoudi's May 25 donation of $1,000 to her war chest. Oddly enough, his occupation is not listed as "American Muslim Council" but "American Museum Council." The Clinton campaign calls this a typo.

Let's see, to turn Muslim into Museum... First three letters are the same. The you see "l" but you type "e". Not even on the same side of the keyboard (assuming Hildebeast's staff uses a standard QWERTY keyboard). Then you see "i" but type "u". A more likely error as U and I are right next to each other on the keyboard. It's not a typo, it's an excuse, and a damned bad one at that.

It is amazing to me the folks in NY elected her. Hopefully, she's giving them plenty of reason to question their rationale.

A very good friend and practicing Jew before he died a few years ago had a label for those Jews you describe in your post.

My friend called them Jewish by name only! He said that they hated being Jewish, they hated Israel and all that was Jewish. They spent their teenage years and entire adult life hating their heritage, their religion and their culture or running away from it!

When he first told me this in 1971, I really didn't understand what he meant. He warned me that these were very dangerous and vile people without a moral center. Ten years later and up to now, I realized that he was right on target!

12 years ago I became friends with a young Jewish woman, and she was like my other friend is a devout and practicing Jew. We discussed these Jewish by Name only. She had another name which I will not post. She had spent 2 years in Israel, and she surprised me that many Jews in Israel were afflicted with this disease! She said the worse ones end up as ACLU lawyers and politicians, and she predicted that the NY Jewish by name only left wingers would help to elect Hilldebeast even if it meant the destruction of Israel!

She may forget .. But I Haven't

The spitting incident was in Albany, and it was against the Albany Police Department Honor Guard. They got the flag too. So as not to go over old ground again, Click here for the original story. After much flak, Hillary finally admitted that members of her rent-a-mob ( just her confessing to using rent-a-mobs shows how desperate she was to get elected ) were the guilty parties, so that made it all OK with New Yorkers. This contemptible sow belongs in jail, which is one of my greatest dreams.

Unfortunately it doesn't matter whether it anything comes unglued for her. She has the support of 99.9% of NY women voters. If you held a re-election today, she'd probably win by an even greater margin.
