If we are talking about issues of being all good or all bad we see this situation is nearly impossible to find . Hillary, in announcing the $900 million to be given PA and Hamas at the recent donors meeting of Arab States at Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt [Editors Note: It hurts to say Egypt] said, all states receiving US funds must promise to recognize Israel and end terrorism. Yet, objectively we know that Hillary as Secretary of State is far less the friend of Israel than she was as a sitting Senator from NY State with its large, influential Jewish population. Yet, in response to Clinton's demand, Hamas has refused to recognize Israel, saying among other things that it was democratically elected.§ionid=351020202 It must be recalled that at the time of Hamas' election, the West announced that it would not deal with the movement until it recognized Israel and denounced "violence". Hillary had reiterated the conditions of the Quartet and of the Roadmap.>Senator Clinton repeatedly warned of the monumental dangers of Palestinian incitement to hatred and murder of Israeli Jews in their schools, media and mosques as having "dire consequences for peace for generations to come." She even said, "It is clear that the Palestinian Authority, as we see on PATV, is complicit" in terrorist attacks and that we should condition U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority on a "cessation of Palestinian propaganda and hateful rhetoric." Now, as Secretary of State, she enthusiastically supports an unconditional increase in U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority and Gaza, to $900 million a year. Whether the release of the funds will be authorized will ultimately be conditioned upon their recognizing Israel and (whose to evaluate) the ending terror, is up to President Obama.

I believe Secretary Clinton over stepped the lines of propriety when she appeared this week on a P.A. teen television show and when asked, "What would you do if your daughter was unfortunate enough to have been born under occupation, born deprived of freedom and liberty?" Secretary Clinton legitimized the question's false premise and actually helped incite hatred against Israel by not refuting it and ignoring the fact that 98 percent of Palestinians actually live under the Palestinian Authority or Hamas, not Israeli control. Instead, Clinton responded, "Well, I would do what so many parents here in the West Bank and in Gaza do. I would love her . I would get the best education I could for her . I would never give up on the dream of a Palestinian state."

There will certainly be penalties for those who spoke out. There is one particular, self proclaimed critic, quite a surprise - Finding out will keep you reading thru to the end.
