Jewish leaders are learning a harsh lesson about liberal democrats – they coddle islamist terrorists and berate free democracies. They have for decades. So why are they shocked Hillary Clinton, working for President Obama, is promoting the Â usual liberal lines?
In a swift about face from her views as New York’s senator, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is now hammering Israel over its treatment of Palestinians in Gaza.Â
As First Lady, Clinton raised eyebrows when she kissed Suha Arafat.Â
Since she was then seeking a Senate seat the resulting brouhaha caused her to “re-think” her positions.Â
“I’m a very strong supporter of Israel,” Clinton said back in February 2000.Â
On Thursday, as Secretary of State she had yet another about face in the form of angry messages demanding Israel speed up aid to Gaza. Jewish leaders are furious.Â
“I am very surprised, frankly, at this statement from the United States government and from the secretary of state,” said Mortimer Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News andÂ member of the NYC Jewish Community Relations Council.
“I liked her a lot more as a senator from New York,” Assemblyman Dov Hikind, D-Brooklyn, said. “Now, I wonder as I used to wonder who the real Hillary Clinton is.”Â
The real Hillary is simply a liberal politician. They should not be surprised, they should chose their leaders better.
