To all those who believe that Bill Clinton was and is a staunch supporter of Israel , please read the following headline."Russian Immigrants are an obstacle to peace'.Bill Clinton, while speaking at his Global Initiative event, told reporters that Russian speaking soldiers will not clash with settlers when they are called upon to evacuate citizens living in Judea and Samaria in order to secure a peace agreement with the Palestinians.Not only did he criticize the children of Russian Olim but he also condemned the children of settlers as well.he called both groups the hardest core people against a division of the land. For such a liberal individual and a strong supporter of human rights , this labeling of certain groups of Israeli citizens surely constitutes a major form of racism and discrimination against the Israeli people.
Clinton reminisced about a conversation with the highly respected figure head and the first Russian political party, Natan Sharansky. Sharansky did not support the peace deal that Clinton tried to ram down Israel's throat during the 2000 camp David negotiations. Time was quickly running out Clinton's time in office. This was after he lied under oath about the Monica lewinsky scandal. It order to preserve some dignity and respect as he was leaving office, Clinton tried to push then Prime Minister Ehud Barack into a deal that would have greatly diminished Israel's size and security. Arafat walked away from the deal that was offered by Barak and Clinton, and we all know the results of those collapsed talks.
The peace loving Palestinians with Arafat at the helm unleashed the worst wave of terrorist attacks since the inception of the state of Israel. It is also important to remember that Clinton was a staunch supporter of Yasser Arafat and that Arafat was the most often received guest of the Clinton White House during his 8 years in office as President of the United States.
According to Mr. Clinton, Sharansky told Clinton that he could not support the Camp David proposals because he is Russian and that he comes from one of the biggest countries in the world to one that is the smallest ." You want me to cut in half, no thank you".Oh by the way, is it possible that Clinton actually lied about this conversation?Sharansky denied having this conversation with Clinton. He said that he wasn't even present at those meetings.Now one has a choice here. Either believe an honest highly respected person who has a deep love for the state of Israel and the Jewish people in general or Bill Clinton a notorious distorter of the truth as has been proven over and over again.
To all of us both in Israel and the U.S. who remember the beautiful slogan coined by Clinton "Shalom Chaver", Goodbye my Friend in reference to Yitzhak Rabin after his assassination, should take notice by his current racist condemnation of a large portion of the Israeli population and the staunchest Zionists in Israel.
With friends like that who needs enemies.
