Hillary Clinton's Record

She loves us not…….she loves us……she loves us not…….she loves us…….she


   Before she became a candidate for the U.S. Senate from New York, Hillary Clinton justified attacks upon Israeli citizens by Hamas and other Arab terrorists. She also attacked the late Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin for deporting some terrorists from Israel and jailing others.

    Before becoming a candidate for the senate Mrs. Clinton chaired an Arab committee which held a reception for all ambassadors accredited to the United States in Washington, D.C. She found no fault with the exclusion of Israel from that reception.

   Before she became a candidate, Mrs. Clinton broadcast a message to an Arab convention held in Switzerland in which she expressed her support for the Arab cause against Israel and spoke with vehemence for the establishment of a Palestinian state.

    Before she ran for the Senate, Mrs. Clinton kissed and embraced Mrs. Suha Arafat when that woman revived the Nazi canard that the Jews were poisoning the drinking water. This was applauded with great fervor by the Secretary General of the Arab League Esmat Abdul Meguid. As a reward for her efforts on behalf of the enemies of  Israel and the Jewish people, the United Arab Emirates gave Hillary Clinton a prize on May 12, 1998. That, of course, was before she became a candidate for a senate seat from New York.

    Yet, even after becoming a candidate Mrs. Clinton found it convenient to accept a large financial contribution from her Arab friends who of course hope she will be elected to the Senate so she can use her influence against Israel. We need to ask this question: “Why should any Senator from any state support Israel in the future if a Senator from New York is opposed to the survival of Israel?”

     Of course Hillary is not only a friend of the Arab enemies of the Jewish people. She also considers Al Sharpton her friend. Now, those of you who don’t know who Al Sharpton is may want to hear this. Sharpton is an Afro-American “civil rights” leader who says that Jews exploit other New Yorkers. Sharpton also holds rallies outside of Jewish business establishments denouncing Jews.  Sharpton is a  major force in promoting anti-Jewish sentiment in New York City.     Now it will be argued that Mrs. Clinton is not the only enemy of Israel in the Clinton administration.  That is true. For example, Martin Indyk, American ambassador to Israel, can find nothing right with that country. His appointee, Joseph Zogby, calls Israel a “monster” and Jews a disease. Likewise other ex-Jews such as our secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, find everything wrong with Israel and consistently side with the 187 million Arabs who seek Israel’s destruction.

    We Jews have reason to pride ourselves for our great contributions to science, to the arts and to technology. We have an enormous number of Jewish Nobel Prize winners. Many other Jews, despite our small numbers, have contributed to the theater, to journalism and to philanthropy. There is only one area of human endeavor in which we Jews have always been  deficient. That area is politics and self preservation. Consider this. Suppose a candidate for the U.S. Senate associated herself with organizations who denounce Afro-Americans and call blacks a “disease” and serves as honorary chair of a group which distributes anti-black literature. Surely, all the Jews in New York would refuse to have anything to do with such a racist since we are of course all “liberals”. Yet, Jews say they are voting for Hillary. Here we have the same phenomenon we had in Germany in the 1930’s. The German Jews, in face of Hitler, said "I am A German. I will leave the fatherland with the last train."  Well they did. They left with the last trains to Auschwitz, Dachau and Neuengamme.

    Somehow we Jews never learn. Read again that dramatic little book by Wiesel called “Night.” There Wiesel describes how a Polish Jew came to Wiesel’s  native town in Romania and warned the Romanian Jews concerning the fate of the Polish Jews who were even then murdered in gas ovens by the millions. The Romanian Jews did not want to hear that. They preferred to believe that they would yet be welcome in their home country and escape the Nazi threat. In the end they too ended in Auschwitz.

   My friends, think what you are about to do. Do you really want an opportunist in the Senate who has such a long history of anti-Jewish conduct? Let us at least this time vote in our own interest and ignore the representative of the Arab League. She doesn’t need the Jewish vote. She has the Arab vote. That should be enough, shouldn’t it?
