shame on

There was outrage in 1999 when Hillary Clinton kissed Arafat’s wife after the latter gave a speech filled with venomous lies.

In 1999 Suha Arafat, Yasser Arafat’s wife, said, “Our [Palestinian] people have been submitted to the daily and intensive use of poisonous gas by the Israeli forces, which has led to an increase in cancer cases among women and children.”

Although Hillary Clinton was sitting on the same stage and receiving a simultaneous translation of Mrs. Arafat’s speech, she sat silent.

When the speech was finished the First Lady stood up and walked over to Suha Arafat. Hillary Clinton’s response to the accusation that Israel was using poison gas?

A kiss and a hug for Mrs. Arafat.

Hillary Clinton has since tried to walk back her actions, but the Blair papers reveal interestingly enough that Hillary had also been reading a book by Mrs. Arafat’s mother, My Home, My Prison.

Raymonda Tawil, Arafat’s mother-in-law, was a polished and extremely manipulative PLO propagandist who has largely been forgotten now, in part because, like her daughter, she was widely despised by the Arab Muslims she claimed to represent.

Tawil, like her daughter, lived in France and gave a very ugly interview with statements such as, “The Jews of France are conducting a media war in order to frighten the French people. This is the racism of French Jewry.” and “the Jews should return to their ghettos.”

That’s the kind of recreational reading that Hillary Clinton found useful.

    And they say you can’t judge a book by its cover. You can if its wearing a pantsuit.

    We can only hope that all this is brought out in her campaign.

    The Blair papers…what a treasure. With each confirmation of Hillary’s bigotry, ruthlessness, and vindictiveness, the headwind picks up strength. Listen to the wind, Hillary. It howls for thee.

    Daniel, you’re mining this vein like it’s solid gold. Keep blasting!

      Is that a real picture of Hillary when she was logging her million miles of jet setting around the world?
