In another demonstration of the Obama administration’s support for our Middle East allies, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, said at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy last Friday that Israel is suspicious of Palestinians and doesn’t care enough about their plight.
Passing up no opportunity to demonstrate the administration’s support, Clinton added
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…. 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[.]
Not a word about the “lack of generosity, the lack of empathy” from the terrorists whose only goal is to butcher Israelis and their children. Not a word about there being “more that the [Palestinians] need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of a people [who are the objects of their terrorism] in their minds.”
And this Progressive administration insists, with a straight face, that they fully support Israel. And they cynically elide the fact that with the UN’s recent vote, the Oslo accords have been abrogated, and so there is no one with whom to negotiate for the Israelis.
