Hillary Clinton’s Terror State Gala

Pages: 1 2

However, though this policy may be highly flawed or worse, Secretary Clinton’s words at the gala were not as much of a problem as her and the other dignitaries’ presence and/or participation, at the event – an event sponsored by a group with ties to the PLO.

The American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP) or as it was previously named, the American Committee on Jerusalem (ACJ), was incorporated in May 1995. Speaking at the group’s “inaugural public activity,” held in November 1995, was its then-President Rashid Khalidi.

Khalidi had previously been identified in news reports as “a PLO spokesman” and “a director of the Palestinian press agency, Wafa,” (Wikalat al-Anba al-Filastinija), which Khalidi himself has described as “the P.L.O’s news agency.”

Eight years later, at the time of the group’s name change in August 2003, ACJ Chairman Ziad Asali and ACJ President Rashid Khalidi respectively became ATFP President and ATFP Vice President.

Asali has remained President of the ATFP to this day. As such, he was the individual possessing the honor of greeting and introducing Secretary Clinton at the 2010 gala.

Also speaking at this year’s gala was Maen Rashid Areikat, the head of the PLO Mission based in Washington, DC and the Chief Representative of the PLO to the United States. Areikat’s speech consisted of his reading of a letter addressed to Asali and the gala attendees from Global President of the PLO [and the Palestinian Authority (PA)] Mahmoud Abbas.

No one could be surprised by Areikat’s involvement in this event, as he had done exactly the same at last year’s gala. Furthermore, no one could be surprised that Abbas would write a letter for this Gala, as a photo of Abbas along with a link to Abbas’s Presidential website – which contains the PLO logo atop it – is found on every page of the ATFP official website.

Certainly Secretary Clinton and all those other officials partaking in the ATFP event, including their handlers, would and should have known about most if not all of the above.

Yet these officials elected to participate in the event anyway – an event featuring the leaders of a U.S. recognized terrorist group and sponsored by an organization connected to that same terrorist group.

Maybe they can waiver the fact that they were there associating themselves with terrorists.

Or maybe those of us concerned will not allow them to forget.

Joe Kaufman is the Chairman of Americans Against Hate and the spokesman for Young Zionists. He has been responsible for the closure of at least one terror-related charity and has convinced a number of government officials to shun the Hamas front group, CAIR. In June 2009, he won a lawsuit brought against him by seven Dallas-area radical Muslim organizations.

    Is she speaking of the Trans-Jordanian people that Jordan has yet to assimilate back into their society? Is she speaking of the displaced Egyptian people yet to be reunited into their homeland or to the Lebanese people that are also displaced? What is their mission statement? How does it go, something about wiping out the people of Israel? Or is it a quote from that Loving, Peaceful Qur'an which would have the world believe that the One, True God would call on Muslims to listen to the trees and rocks call out to them to come kill a Jew hiding behind them? (Because who doesn’t understand what a threat a person hiding behind a tree or a rock posses to the world?) To whom are we to be most thankful? Mrs. Clinton, representing us in dialogue with a recognized terrorist organization or ourselves for allowing such a transgression to go unanswered?

    This is the same woman, unworthy of having tied her Senate predecessor 's
    shoe laces, New York Jews had the unmitigated gall of electing Senator, truly
    in line with 80% of them (New York perhaps 101%) voting for BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA…! ! !

    "Last month, Hillary Clinton reiterated her wishes for the creation of a Palestinian state. . the group that she was speaking in front of, the American Task Force on Palestine – a group with past and present ties to the terrorist PLO – is."

    If life and America were fair,the Zionist state of Israel along with the corrupt PLO and the fundamentalist Hamas would be listed as Terrorist states or organizations.Muchiboy

      Israel is not a terrorist state. Hamas states in its charter that its goal is worldwide genocide of the Jews. The PLO was notorious for executing Israeli children and shooting newborns point blank in the head. Keep trying with the lies Nazi-boy.

    The Palestinians strap munitions on their own women and children and send them out on homicide-suicide missions to murder other innocent women and children in markets, restuarants, on school buses, and in their homes. The Palestinians in their own words and by their actions are committed to the genocide of the Jewish people therefore, have foreited their rights to even exist at all let alone having a UN and US sanctioned terrorist state of tehir own.

    Why would they possibly want to have a state of their own, they have to take on responsibilities and would be cut off from all the freebies they receive now.

    The Roman Emperor Hadrian changed the name of Judea to "Palestina" after having defeated the last of the Jewish rebellions under Bar Kochba in 135 A.D. From that time on, "Palestine" meant "land of the Jews" or "the Holy Land," and "Palestinian" was synonymous with "Jew". That is why the Zionists wanted the "Palestine Mandate" and that Great Britain was awarded the "Palestine Mandate" after World War I to be "the homeland of the Jews."
    Calling Arabs "Palestinians" is the consequence of Soviet propaganda; the Soviet Union and Egypt under Nasser founded the "Palestine Liberation Organization" in Cairo in 1964, with all the phony history and propaganda to go with it.

      And, John Brennan, the State Department's chief on terrorism (appointed by Obama/Clinton), refers to Jerusalem as AlQuds, never as Jersusalem.
      Unrelated to the above comment, Messrs. Levin, Ackerman, and Berman, along with Mrs. Lowey and Mrs. Albright fit in very nicely with this group of those who are so disdainful of Israel's existence.

      This is historically correct. Yasser Arofat traveled many times to the Soviet Union for supposedly diplomatic visits. Did anyone ever ask who he met or why her was there? He met with the KGB propoganda minister to create a plan for one of the greatest propoganda successes in history: to make his murderous terrorist organization the PLO into victims of Israeli oppression. This was the reason for his visits and the result we still see today

  • Dennis Menzer

    Hilliry had a party with the PLO and it's supporters ??? that's not too bad….Obama had a dinner in the White House with high ranking Muslims form around the world and took off his shoes and prayer with them.
