Hillary Clinton: Israel has
‘lack of generosity … lack
of empathy’ for Palestinians

Daily Caller, by Gregg Re

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/2/2012 5:31:20 AM

Speaking at a forum at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington on Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Israel is suspicious of Palestinians and doesn’t care enough about their plight. “I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion,” Clinton said, after praising the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for working with her in 2009 to offer a moratorium on building new Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

Wrong! The Palestinians teach their children, from the womb, to hate and kill Israelis.

I half-expected the Hildabeest to quote Mayor Richard J. Daley´s gentle remark to Senator Abe Ribicoff at the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago [which I will not print here ´cause I wish to continue posting].

The Beast is awful, but at least the Dems are in lock-step in their hatred of Israel.

When the Palestinian people rise up against Muslims who teach their children to blow themselves up in crowded Israeli restaurants, synagogues and towns, perhaps we can talk about who is generous and who is not.

Perhaps when Israelis begin targeting innocents civilians rather than targeting the military and terrorists who have openly said they want to wipe Israel off the map, we can discuss generosity.

Perhaps when the very goal of Palestinian terrorists is to target civilians -- children and women are not matter -- we may be able to talk "generosity".

In the meanwhile, Hillary Clinton should stop listening to her anti-Israeli American puppeteers and get real.

Here´s woman who´s old man is worth millions and she still hasn´t paid of her old campaign debts and is planning on running again.

To say Israel isn´t generous is totally insane. When ever there´s a natural disaster Israeli doctors are among the first on the scene.

In a 2 state solution,Israel would be more than happy to offer aid to the Palestinians. This is a reckless and absurd comment.

FTA: “So, yes, there is more that the Israelis need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds, and they want to figure out, within the bounds of security and a Jewish democratic state, what can be accomplished,” Clinton added.

An oppressed people, really? The Palestinians have always been a pawn in the hands of Jewish hating Islamists. They need this so called "oppression" to justify their inbred hatred and gin up violence against Israel. This conflict is not about land. It is all about genocide. The Islamist will never seek peace with the Israelis because their goal is to wipe them from the face of the earth. They openly and enthusiastically say this. How do you negotiate with this mindset? Hillary and her fellow progs are no friend of Israel. They have thrown their lot in with the genocidal maniacs.

Yet, like the "won" she will get 80% of the solid Jewish Democrat vote in 2016. She is an embarrassment but we must now have a woman President now that we have checked the box for having a black. We have also now checked the box for Marxist / Communist as well with the votes in 2008 and 2012!

Agree #21, #22. It was and is plain as the nose on your face what this Democratic Party is all about these days. Obama is anti-Israel, Hildebeast is anti-anybody as long is it is politically feasible for her to get votes. Still the Jewish community fell hook line and sinker and voted the Democrats back into power this past election. I´m drained, it is up to God, we´ve done what we can, I think we´ve passed the tipping point.

Lack of generosity? Like the Arab nations the Palestinians originated from? I recall seeing an article in US News & World Report, in regards to the Palestinian origins. They are "refugees" from other Arab nations, kicked out/displaced, with an ulterior motive by the original hosting Arab country to be a pain in the side to Israel.

How about being objective, Hildebeast and asking the Arab nations, where the Palestinians originated from, to step up and be generous? This mentality that Isreal owes anything to the Palestinians, just because they want Israeli lands, is obsurd. Israel gave them Gaza, so where do the wants end? Well, we already know-the Palestinians want it all.

The Israelis have been far more compassionate to a deplorable bunch of primordial savages that are trying to kill them at every turn using any means at their disposal, than most cultures would be. When you try to help them they just bite the hand that feeds them. Remember what happened when they turned the Gaza strip over to them?

http://atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com/atlas_shrugs/2005/09/these_greenhous.html

The Palis took over a well-run, prosperous area, (thanks to the Israelis) and like locusts proceeded to destroy the greenhouses and the sewage system, turning the strip into? yet another unproductive islamofascist slum. Then they proceeded to use it as a base to launch rockets at Israel...oh and of course dig tunnels.
As far as the Hillbag is concerned, how anyone could take that lying hag seriously is really beyond my comprehension. She is as two-faced as it gets... and both of them are ugly as sin!

If my neighbor shot rockets at my house, after I generously gave him property and food, I would probably erase him and his house. The UN just gave a terrorist group statehood status, perhaps we should declare the UN an enemy too.

Hillary clinton is one of the most despicable candidates that the dems could run in 2016, therefore, expect her to be on the ticket.

I don’t suppose Hillary is in danger of losing the money and votes of American Jews no matter how much she disses Israel since liberal Jews in America don’t much care about Israel and probably agree with her. But some American Jews invested lots of their money to help the Palestinians build greenhouses in Gaza after Israel pulled out. The idea was to go beyond giving Palestinians a fish, which will feed them for a day, and to teach them to fish for themselves so they could feed themselves for their lifetimes.

It was a foolish idea at the time, the Palestinians want to make bombs, not flowers. The greenhouses were never built because the Palestinians tore them down before they were finished.

It´s a funny thing about people facing certain obliteration at the hands of those who hate them. When your suspicions about a evil mob of butcherous killers turn out to be spot on, kind of kicks that "empathy" and "generosity" stuff right out the window.

The great hypocrisy of it all is that should Israel finally decide to exterminate this murderous rabble from the face of the Earth, not a few of their "Arab brothers" would quietly breath a sign of relief.

I think american jews are dems because FDR sent out the word to say he was a jew and his real name was roosenfelt. He was the first and worst of the dem presidents to get us into wars and trigger the Pearl Harbor attack. He wanted a 4th and 5th term as prez and fortunately, he died. He was very ill and no business running for his 3rd and 4th terms. Hyde Park was full of info from the people that worked at the estate and they loved Eleanor, but hated him.

That is not quite the real story #24. Arafat a plain everyday criminal was ousted from in Russia with a merry band of outlaws demanding the nation.
As they made their way from one nation to another calling themselves the Palestine Liberation Army and creating one massacre after another they were rejected by all Arab countries.
One climax was the attempt to kill the Jordan king and take over Jordan. That resulted in the deaths of 10,000 people before they were thrown out. They he then moved on to tear apart Lebanon.
Only after Arafat decided he could gain Arab support by eliminating Israel did his band become Palestinians moving into Gaza and the West bank. That gang has lost out to hamas..

I never thought I could ever say this, but Hillary just might be a worse president than Obama -- but I don´t think he will ever give her a chance to see. I think Obama is going to want to do this for life - like a dictator. He is getting too much respect and swell head from this and I don´t think he will ever want to give it up. The people who put him in office think he is great - but I think they will see that he is not but it will be too late.

This coming from a woman who has a very corrupt history since the 70s Her list of failures especially reguarding Israel and the Jews are just too numerous to mention. I´ll just say thta she and her darling hubby have been big fans of Arafathead and the PLO for a long time. The fact that Cankles is our SecState is a joke. Just a thought since PIAPS is a liberal hag. What does she know about generosity and empathy?

A governor’s journey: Rick Perry in the South
Pacific seeking answers about World War II MIAs
Washington Times, by Jennifer Harper    Original Article

It is a long flight, but one Texas governor has a singular calling. Rick Perry has departed for the Republic of Palua, where many thousands of U.S. forces saw fierce fighting during the Pacific campaign of World War II on the islands of Peleliu and Angaur. Mr. Perry has joined up with the BentProp Project, an independent group that has indexed crash sites of 29 American aircraft - Corsairs, Avengers, B-24s and cargo planes. They now seek clues and possibly remains of some 80 U.S. Army Air Corps and Navy airmen who are still missing in action. “Somewhere in the waters of

What do Alaska, Arkansas, Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, and West Virginia have in common? For one, none has a city larger than 400,000 people. For another, they all voted for John McCain in 2008 and Mitt Romney in 2012. For yet another, they are the most likely places for Republicans to pick up Senate seats, thus taking control of the upper chamber, in 2014. These three facts are related. Much ink has been spilled about the “coalition of the ascendant” that the Democrats have formed, which essentially consists of young professionals, nonwhite voters, and gentry liberals. The claim is that this

Leland Yee is no longer a story… but CNN is.

It’s not that there isn’t still an important news story unfolding in the saga of California State Senator Leland Yee… there is. In fact, federal indictments were handed down on Friday and one of his alleged co-conspirators was ordered released on a quarter million dollars bail. But the fact is that there’s a fair chance that this story has pretty much been told already. (Snip)What’s really begun to come into focus here is the mind boggling side bar involving the complete radio silence on this at CNN. It’s gone well beyond the level of slow response, lack of interest or

A fault line discovered in the 90s is rattling nerves in Southern California, where millions have been living on shaky ground. The 25-mile Puente Hills thrust fault, which slices below Los Angeles neighborhoods, downtown skyscrapers, bridges and freeways, could cause catastrophic damage. A week ago today, a magnitude 5.1 earthquake on the fault broke water mains, cracked foundations, and triggered a rock slide. Experts say a 7.5 would be devastating -- and if the Big One struck, it could kill as many as 18,000 people and displace 750,000. That’s because much of Los Angeles’ infrastructure isn’t earthquake-proof. Bridges aren´t built to modern earthquake

The Unemployment Puzzle:
Where Have All the Workers Gone?
Wall Street Journal, by Glenn Hubbard    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/5/2014 5:35:42 AM     Post Reply
A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on? Think of the labor market

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

It was the first time I heard about the mother-of-pearl swimming pool that I realized just how much trouble John McCain and the other four senators were in. That pool was the most ornate of the nine oversized pools at The Phoenician, the over-the-top, 130-acre Arizona resort built by Charles H. Keating Jr., the soon-to-be disgraced financier who would become the face of the savings-and-loan crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Keating, who died Monday at the age of 90, told architects that he had wanted guests at the $300 million resort near Phoenix to have the feeling of

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

One could be forgiven for throwing one’s hands up in despair at the sheer audacity of it all. A fortnight ago, as the federal government took to the courts to defend a rule that deliberately burdens the consciences of America’s more religiously devout entrepreneurs, the professional Left adopted the position that companies do not have consciences, griped that a harsh separation of the public and the private spheres was a recipe for the suffering of unpopular or put-upon individuals, and insisted that any links between the activities of an employee and the deeply held beliefs of his boss should be

How Obama Lost Afghanistan

He said it was ‘the right war.’ Then he did everything he could to screw it up. Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

Every time the Supreme Court rules in favor of the First Amendment in a campaign-finance case, the left recoils in disgust. The court’s 5-4 decision in McCutcheon v. FEC is the latest occasion for the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth. The court struck down the limit on the aggregate amount a donor can give to candidates and political-party committees, ruling it incompatible with First Amendment protections for political expression. The left pronounced itself outraged. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who has $11 million in his campaign treasury despite being a de facto senator for life, called the decision “another step on

So it’s like every other “gun-free zone,” basically. Anyone who can be trusted with a weapon can’t have one, and anyone who can’t be trusted will have little trouble ignoring the rule. Makes sense. Here’s the answer to my question yesterday about how useful the current ban on guns inside military bases is in keeping them out. At Fort Hood, which sprawls for 340 square miles over the Texas prairie, Specialist Lopez was being treated for behavioral and mental health issues. To enter the base, he would have undergone no security screening beyond showing his identification and would have passed through no

Imagine going to work one day only to be, in effect, fired -- not because of anything you did or didn’t do at your job, but because of something you did in your personal life. Something religious. Or maybe, something political.(snip)That’s exactly what happened to Brendan Eich, a highly-respected tech guru in Silicon Valley and co-founder of Mozilla Corporation, after he was appointed CEO in late March. In less than a week, he was forced out of this position for no reason other than that he had a made a $1000 contribution to the Prop 8 initiative in 2008. His

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

There´s no two ways about it: the Dodge Dart isn´t selling. Just a year after its debut -- a debut heralded loudly throughout the automotive world -- the Dart´s sales were pretty dismal. Many of you vented about the compact model, complaining about things as varied as its so-so looks to its iffy ancestor. (Snip) Trucks and SUVs were a different story. On that front, sales were up 30 percent for the year, and March rang in a whopping 34 percent above March 2013, thanks in part to strong performances by the Ram pickup, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and the
