Democratic crown-princess Hillary Clinton is no stranger to the unholy altar of Israeli worship. She has often expressed her deep, almost romantic love for that country. Now, concerned about the growing international boycott of Israel, she has written to one of her major donors, one Haim Saban, proclaiming again her dedication to Israel, and asking his advice on “how we can work together—across party lines and with a diverse array of voices—to reverse this trend with information and advocacy, and fight back against further attempts to isolate and delegitimize Israel.” ‘This trend’ that she refers to is not in question; she specifically names the ‘Boycott, Divest and Sanction’ (BDS) movement that has been growing for some time, but that gained traction following Israel’s most recent genocidal attack on the Gaza Strip during the summer of 2014.
I always finds it interesting to dissect statements by the crowned heads of the United States, or those patiently awaiting their time on the throne, to see what sense, if any, can be gleaned from them. He does not expect to find much sense, and seldom does.
So we will look at a few of the pearls of wisdom that dropped from Mrs. Clinton’s pen, in her missive to the esteemed Mr. Saban. We’ll look first at part of the statement noted above.
* “[t]o reverse this trend with information and advocacy.” Unfortunately for Mrs. Clinton, it is information that is fueling the trend. As the world becomes more aware of the atrocities Israel commits on a daily basis against the Palestinians, the BDS movement grows. Mrs. Clinton can advocate all she wants for a brutal, apartheid regime; people in increasing numbers will still know it is a brutal and apartheid regime.
