Clinton to Israel: Stop being meanies!

Clinton says Israel risks losing support on Iran

* Clinton says Israel must be open to Palestinian talks
[When did she win Israeli elections?]

* She insists U.S. funds will not go to Hamas
[Of course not! We believe her, too. And them. Oh yeah.]

* Secretary of state hints at some flexibility on funds
[Meaning Israel must accept a "Palestinian" state, but as usual, none of them have to accept Israel. Nice and flexible and all.]

WASHINGTON, April 23 (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton cautioned Israel’s right-wing government on Thursday that it risked losing Arab support for fighting any threats from Iran if it shuns Palestinian peace talks.

Signaling U.S. impatience with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s reticence over peace talks, Clinton said Arab nations had made clear to her that Israel must be committed to the Palestinian peace process if it wants help countering Iran.

“For Israel to get the kind of strong support it is looking for vis-a-vis Iran, it can’t stay on the sidelines with respect to the Palestinians and the peace efforts. They go hand in hand,” she told the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee.

Israel sees a nuclear-armed threat as a mortal threat.

Why in the world?

But New York Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey, who has previously put holds on money earmarked for the Palestinians, questioned what she said was some “flexibility” in the Obama administration’s approach.

Clinton reiterated that the Obama administration expected any new government that included Hamas to meet three conditions — to recognize Israel, renounce violence and sign on to previous Palestinian peace accords.

But Clinton hinted that some flexibility might be needed, pointing to U.S. funding for Lebanon, whose government includes the militant group Hezbollah.

Israel needs to bow down… Islamists? Notsamuch.

    This is no surprise. The US always supports Islam against Non Muslims. Israel is the new Serbia. Then it will be Spain. Mark my words.

    Gee Hillary sure changed her tune once she left being senator from New York for Foggy Bottom. Is her old ‘friend’ Samantha Power calling the shots?

    Let’s not forget Hillary’s leftist roots. I think as First Lady and then Senator from New York she repressed her true left wing anti Israel feelings. Like Obama, she has hung around Israel haters for a good part of her life.

    The sad part is American Jews vote for people who hate their Israeli Cousins. I always wonder about this.

    Well the Bible has the answer as always:
    Isaiah 49:17 Thy children shall make haste; thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee.

    Those that destroy Israel comes out of Israel. It’s the Judas Iscariots.
    These Jews that vote for these people might very well be the Judas Iscariots.

    Hitlery Clinton what can you say? Ridiculous woman that will reap what she has sown.

    Bible Believer,
    Valid point.

    If your around maybe you can give insight as to why American jews for politicians who hate Israel. It just boogles my mind. Cuban Americans don’t vote for Pro Castro politicians.

    This list is interesting, it contains some seriously wicked people:
    Self-Hating and/or Israel-Threatening LIST

    as the Jews that make that site says, these Jews hates themselves, just like you have Americans that hates USA.
    Some people are just insane, I guess it might have something to do with them being globalist/internationalist as well, that type of people are against all nations and wants one world (Genesis chapter 11 style).
